Sometimes our teeth can suffer from problems that spoil their appearance and make us self-conscious about our smiles. Discolouration and staining, worn tooth enamel or unevenly spaced teeth can all make the teeth look unhealthy and unattractive but there are a number of cosmetic treatments available from Central London dentists that can restore the appearance of damaged teeth.
One of the most effective ways of making teeth look healthier is to use veneers. These are very thin ceramic caps that fit over the top of your existing teeth. They will have been specifically designed for your teeth, to restore the natural and even appearance of healthy teeth. One of the most modern and effective veneers on the market is called Lumineers. These are a very thin veneers manufactured by Cerinate in the US. They are much thinner than traditional laboratory veneers but also incredibly strong. Lumineers are about the same width as a contact lens and involve little or no enamel removal prior to fitting. This can often be the case with some other veneers so that they can fit naturally over the top of existing teeth without appearing too big in the mouth.
Lumineers are so thin that they can even fit over the top of existing dental work such as crowns and veneers already in the mouth. The veneers will cover the front part of the tooth, adding an extra layer of protection against tooth decay and enamel erosion.
Not all dentists will offer Lumineers as they are required to be registered as official suppliers of Cerinate Lumineers. Ask your Central London dentist if they are Lumineer suppliers and you could benefit form the restorative powers of these very thin ceramic caps. Lumineer veneers are very durable and have been clinically proven to last up to twenty years.
