In central London, it’s very important to project your smile with confidence and having good looking teeth can boost your employment opportunities and enrich your social life, as well as giving you that touch of glam. Over time, teeth can start to look tired with the excesses of life and this can start to eat away at your self confidence. Help is on hand however in the shape of porcelain veneers and they can hide a multiple of sins like receding gums and cracks, and restore a very natural sheen to the teeth. It’s a relatively easy procedure and can be done in a couple of visits to the dentist (one visit if you take the CEREC route). Firstly, a dentist will prepare the teeth by shaving away the enamel and then take a mould, from which the veneers can be fabricated. On the second visit, the veneers will be cemented to the teeth and cured with a light source. Porcelain veneers, as well as giving a natural translucent look to the mouth, are quite strong and durable and if treated with respect, can last anywhere up to 10 years. Prices vary, starting from around £200 and is a service offered on the NHS for a lot less, but it’s difficult and unfair to put a price on looking good and feeling fantastic.
