In tried and tested methods we trust! And if you’re thinking of going down the cosmetic dentistry route in central London, one treatment that has proved itself over and over again is the porcelain veneer. Veneers have been with us for many years now, and it’s a testament to how good they are, that dentists and patients a like, still choose them. When you opt for this treatment, you are getting a good, natural restorative treatment that will last you for at least 10 years, if you look after them. When the day arrives for your treatment, you will first have the enamel removed, so that your dentist can make moulds of your teeth. These are then sent away so that the veneers can be manufactured, and when they return, they are fixed into place with cement, and then ‘cured’, very similar to having false nails fitted. Porcelain has a very beautiful translucent sheen and this shines out from within the mouth. The affects are dramatic and cover up an array of sins, such as gaps between the teeth, chips and cracks, and even cover up any signs of gum recession. This whole treatment normally takes two weeks, but if you’re impatient, find a dentist that offers the CEREC programme, and you could have the whole process done and dusted in a couple of hours, and for a similar price.
