Top Four Tips for Protecting Your Veneers

Sunday, January 10th, 2021

shutterstock_398174743When you’ve got a stunning smile thanks to a set of beautiful veneers, the last thing you want is to damage or stain them. Here are four top tips to help you protect your veneers.

  1. See your dentist for regular check-ups: regular check-ups are important for all patients. When you come and see us, your dentist will have a thorough look in your mouth, and check your veneers. Although it’s not possible for the veneers to decay, it is possible for your natural teeth to become decayed, so routine checks are highly recommended.
  2. Brush twice a day: looking after your veneers is very similar to caring for your natural teeth. Brush twice a day, and be gentle when you move your brush around your mouth. Take care to spend at least 2 minutes cleaning your teeth day and night, and to cover each individual tooth.
  3. Avoiding staining: you want your smile to look beautiful and bright for years to come, so try and prevent staining. Some veneers are stain-resistant, but others will start to show the signs of discolouration if you don’t brush frequently and you’re partial to coffee, tea, cola or wine. If you are drinking something with a strong colour, use a straw.
  4. Avoid abrasive toothpaste: abrasive toothpastes can sometimes be used to remove satins, but they can be harmful for the natural enamel and also for veneers.

If you have any questions about looking after your veneers, or you’d like some tips, call us and our dental team will be happy to advise you.

What is smile imaging and how does it work?

Smile imaging uses innovative technology to produce images of what you can expect to look like with different treatment options.

To enjoy the benefits of smile imaging, all we need from you are some before shots, which we will capture with a special camera. We can then use smile imaging to show you images of what you would look like if you have certain treatments. We can use smile imaging for a range of services, including:

  • Veneers
  • Dental implants
  • Tooth whitening
  • Crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Orthodontic treatments
  • Dental bonding

If you’re not sure whether or not to take the plunge, smile imaging can help you to make a decision.

Cosmetic Dentistry Produces Amazing Results

Monday, October 12th, 2015

18625010Solve all your teeth problems with cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a wide range of practices designed to improve the look of your smile and the function of your mouth.  Having a smile with which you can feel confident and proud is just as important as having a fully functioning set of teeth and a healthy mouth.  These two things are often interlinked and cosmetic dentistry can ensure that both are fully realised.

There are many reasons why you might feel that you require some cosmetic dentistry work.  If you have lost a tooth or teeth then you might with to have some porcelain crowns installed by your dentist.  These lightweight, durable and realistic replacement teeth can be treated just like your normal teeth, giving you back functionality and an aesthetically pleasing smile.

Cosmetic dentistry also encompasses processes such as teeth whitening.  It is highly likely that your teeth will be subject to some degree of staining in your lifetime or at the very least their natural colour will fade.  Dentists can offer treatments or at-home packages for you to administer yourself.

Some of these techniques can be offered in conjunction with one another, giving patients the chance to have a ‘smile makeover’ if they are faced with multiple issues to do with their oral health and appearance.  Technological advances have made some of these processes incredibly fast but without the increases in price which one might expect.

For example, CEREC techniques allow dentists to take digital, 3D images of teeth and send them to an online milling machine.  This machine constructs porcelain veneers and crowns in just over five minutes, ready to be fitted by your dentist.

Do you have reservations about cosmetic dentistry because of what other people might think? If so, we are here to put the record straight, provide you with all the information you need and enable you to realise your dreams of having a beautiful smile.

About cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is focused on the aesthetic of the smile and the aim of treatment is to improve the look of the smile. There are usually no dental health benefits, but cosmetic dentistry can make a real difference to your mental wellbeing and your confidence, especially if your smile has been a source of anxiety or low self-esteem in the past. Some people say that undergoing cosmetic treatment is vain, but you should do what you want to do and focus on yourself, not other people. Few could argue with treatment, which makes you feel confident and enables you to live life to the full. The smile is one of the most important features and it’s completely understandable to want to have treatment to make it look more attractive.

Is cosmetic dentistry for me?

Cosmetic dentistry is very popular and there are all kinds of different treatments available, from minor procedures to complete transformations. Dentistry is not the same as cosmetic surgery and it doesn’t carry the same risks; often, aesthetic dental woes are very noticeable and cosmetic treatment is a means of correcting problems and enhancing the natural beauty of the smile. If you have issues with your teeth, such as staining, chipped or worn teeth or you simply long for a perfect looking smile, cosmetic dentistry could be an excellent choice for you. Many of the procedures are straightforward and painless and the results of treatment often last for several years.
