Brighten Your New Smile for 2019 with Lumineers

2019 is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a dazzling, new smile? If you dream of starting the year with a flawless smile, allow us to tell you all about Lumineers.
About Lumineers
Lumineers are a unique form of veneers, which are used to craft natural-looking, radiant smiles. Lumineers are not your average veneers. Rather than being made using porcelain like many other types of veneers, Lumineers are created using patented, pressed Cerinate porcelain. They are tougher and more durable than other veneers, and they are twice as strong. Despite their strength and robustness, Lumineers are incredibly thin and light.
The Lumineers difference
Lumineers are famed for creating stunning smiles, and they have a beautiful natural sheen, which is ideal for those looking to brighten up their smile, while preserving that natural, understated look. Lumineers are very thin, but they’re more durable and hard-wearing than many other types of veneer.
As Lumineers are so delicate, they are approximately the same thickness as a contact lens, minimal preparation is required. Usually, when you have veneers, a fine layer of the tooth structure is removed to make space for the new veneers. With Lumineers, the veneers can be bonded directly onto the tooth surface, keeping the structure of the tooth and the precious enamel coating intact. The procedure is also faster and less invasive.
How can Lumineers help me?
If you dream of a perfect smile, or you often hide your smile away because you’ve got chipped, worn or stained teeth or gaps between your teeth, Lumineers can help. Lumineers are capable of achieving magical transformations, and we can complete treatment within 2-3 weeks.
If you’re dreaming of a new smile for 2019, why not get in touch and book a consultation today?

Regular Veneers vs. Lumineers

Veneer SmileAt Baker Street Dental, we’re delighted to offer clients in London and beyond an incredible array of dental veneers, including Lumineers. Veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment, which are famed for creating stunning smiles. If you dream of a smile fit for the red carpet, you’ve come to the right place.

What are Lumineers and how are they different from regular veneers?

Lumineers are a unique type of veneer treatment. They are crafted using a patented form of ceramic material called Cerinate porcelain. They are incredibly thin and light, but they’re also strong and durable. The pressed ceramic material increases strength and prolongs the lifespan. Lumineers are up to twice as strong as traditional porcelain veneers, and they can last up to twenty years.

Lumineers are very thin, and this enables greater translucency. These veneers look very lifelike, and they’ll give you a beautifully natural aesthetic.

As Lumineers are thinner than regular veneers, the procedure to fit them is also slightly different. Usually, the teeth have to be prepared before new veneers are fitted. With Lumineers, minimal tooth preparation is required, and this means that the tooth structure is left virtually untouched.

Who can benefit from Lumineers?

Lumineers are an ideal choice for anyone who has designs on a stunning, natural-looking smile. These veneers can be used to address a host of common imperfections, including staining and discolouration, chips and worn teeth, uneven and misshapen teeth and gaps between the teeth. Once the veneers are in place, you’ll have a smile to be proud of and you’ll look and feel incredible.

If you’d like to find out if Lumineers are the best choice for you, call us now and book a consultation.

 

 

The Different Types of Dental Veneer!

To help them achieve the smile they’ve always wanted, many people turn to dental veneers to provide them with the smile makeover they desire. However, with such a wide range of options on the market it is important to know what is available and the best veneers for you.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers, available from your London dentist, are made up of a very thin layer of porcelain, which is then fixed into place over the tooth. These dental veneers tend to take around two or three appointments to be fitted. During the first of these appointments your teeth and mouth will be examined to decide which veneers are best for you. During the first or second visit, a small piece of your tooth will be removed to make room for the new veneer. You will have temporary veneers to wear after your teeth have been treated, which will then be replaced with your permanent veneers during your last visit.

Composite veneers

The second option is composite resin veneers, which are made from the same material used to create white fillings. The procedure for these veneers is simple and the resin is applied to the surface of the tooth before being moulded into the tooth’s shape by the dentist.

Lumineers

Lumineer veneers are the contact lenses of the teeth, as they are much slimmer than porcelain veneers and are around the same size as a contact lens. Lumineers only require around two dental visits and can be placed straight onto the tooth, without the need to remove any of the original tooth.

CEREC veneers

Finally there are CEREC veneers. These veneers are also made of porcelain, but are made for the patient at the dental surgery while they wait. 3D images are taken of the teeth, which are then sent to a computerised milling machine, which produces the veneers from a solid porcelain block. The machine can make veneers in less than five minutes, so you can have your permanent veneers fitted right away. CEREC veneers are long-lasting and can restore the appearance of your smile on the same day as your consultation.

Now that you have the options, it is important to consult with your dentist to ensure you get the best veneers for you. Your dentist will assist you with your choice.

See The Autumn In With a Stunning MAC Veneers Smile

Summer days are fading away and what better way to usher in the new season than with a sparkling new smile? With incredible MAC Veneers, we can provide the perfect tonic to banish those dull and dreary autumn days: an amazing, radiant new set of pearly whites.

What are MAC Veneers?

MAC Veneers are an innovative form of porcelain veneer that offer incredible aesthetics, durability and convenience. These pressed porcelain veneers are custom-made in California, Canada and Las Vegas and are known for producing flawless results.

MAC Veneers differ to other types of porcelain veneer because they are coloured from within using up to 16 different hues. This creates an unrivalled aesthetic that mimics healthy natural teeth. These veneers are also completely stain-resistant, so you can enjoy your stunning smile for years to come. They are incredibly strong and last up to twice as long as some other types of veneer.

What does treatment entail?

Treatment usually takes around four weeks once the consultation and planning stages are complete. This is because it takes time for your custom-designed veneers to be made overseas and returned to us. Before your veneers can be made, we’ll create impressions of your teeth and prepare the tooth surface to make room for your new veneers. Once the MAC Veneers are ready, we place and secure them. We can then show you the results and you can start enjoying your amazing new smile!

Who can benefit from MAC Veneers?

Veneers are often associated with celebrities, but the truth is that they can be beneficial for anyone who feels self-conscious about their smile, dreams of perfect pearly whites or is searching for a solution for minor imperfections. Whether you long for that ultra-bright A-list style smile, dream of a beautiful, natural look or want to repair, reshape and reinvigorate your smile, veneers are an ideal solution.

MAC Veneers don’t just create stunning smiles – they also cover a multitude of imperfections and are a great option for those with common aesthetic flaws such as:

  • staining and discolouration
  • chips
  • signs of general wear and tear
  • misshapen teeth
  • gaps between the teeth
  • slightly crooked teeth

We are able to fit single Mac Veneers or full sets and we can tailor your treatment plan to meet your personal needs and desires.

Get Clued Up on Durathin Veneers

Durathin veneers are famed for creating exquisite results that last for many years. If you suffer from low confidence as a result of the look of your smile or are looking for an effective solution for issues such as chipped or worn teeth, Durathin veneers could be just what you’ve been searching for.

About Durathin veneers

Duration veneers are so called because they are both durable and thin. With Durathin veneers, you are investing in a treatment that will not only give you a beautiful smile, but will also stand the test of time. These veneers are made from hard-wearing materials, which are incredibly strong. They can create flawless smiles, providing a solution for patients with chipped, stained, worn, uneven and misshapen teeth, as well as those with gaps between their teeth.

Durathin treatment usually involves two sessions that take place around two weeks apart. The first session is used to plan your treatment and create impressions of your teeth and the second session (the exciting part!) involves fitting and securing the veneers.

The advantages of Durathin veneers

One of the best things about Durathin is the simplicity of the treatment process. As these veneers are so thin, they can often be bonded onto the teeth with minimal preparation. This speeds up the treatment process, reduces discomfort and protects the structure of the teeth. With other types of veneer, the tooth usually has to be etched in preparation and this involves removing a thin layer of the surface. With Durathin, the structure remains intact.

If you would like to find out more about Durathin veneers or would like to discuss cosmetic dental treatment options with a friendly and experienced dentist, don’t hesitate to call and book a consultation. Our expert dental team is ready and waiting to help you achieve your dream smile!

 

Create a Charming New Smile with Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are an effective treatment for common issues related to wear and tear and they can really make a difference when it comes to the look of your smile. Composite veneers are an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers and they also offer restorative benefits. If you long for a beautiful new smile in time for the summer, this treatment may be just the ticket. Why not call us today and find out more?

The ins and outs of composite veneers

Composite veneers are made from dental composite combined with resins. Composite is a versatile, tooth-coloured material also used to create white fillings, repair chips and build up worn surfaces through a procedure known as composite bonding. Veneers are tooth-shaped shells placed on top of the teeth to create a new, attractive aesthetic. You can invest in a whole set of veneers to produce a brand new smile or use individual veneers to cover problems such as staining, chipped teeth and worn or jagged edges. Veneers can also be beneficial for people who have spaces between the teeth and crooked teeth. They may be considered an alternative for orthodontic treatment for those who do not wish to have braces.

The treatment process

Before you have veneer treatment, you will have a consultation and your dentist will talk to you about the process, what exactly it entails and how it works. You will play an important role in determining the end result and your dentist will ask you to share your ideas and opinions about tooth shape, size and shade so they can get the look of your smile just right. Before your veneers are fitted, the teeth must be prepared to ensure that the veneers are able to bond effectively.

Your dentist will use their skill and experience to shape and shade match the composite to create the perfect aesthetic. Composite is layered onto the tooth after the bonding agent is applied and the aim is to create a natural looking, healthy smile.

Once your veneers are in place, they should last between 3 and 10 years.

MACveneers are different to other types of veneer because they are coloured from within using up to 16 different hues. This gives an amazingly lifelike finish. They are also made from pressed ceramics, which means that they are stronger and last up to twice as long as conventional porcelain veneers.

Are MACveneers a good choice for me?
