Choosing Porcelain Veneers in London

“I’m just going for a fag, get us another glass of red will you, oh, and let’s get a kebab on the way home yeah?” As familiar (and nice!) as that might sound, we don’t half subject our mouth to torture in London. Combine that with general wear and tear and time, our teeth can start to look very tired and worn, so it may be time for a makeover to restore the smile we once had. One tried and tested solution is a porcelain veneer and once fitted can hide a multiple of sins like cracks, gaps, chips and evidence of receding gums. They are very durable- lasting up to 10 years if treated with respect; they can extend the length of the teeth, are easy to fit, look incredibly natural in the mouth and are reasonably priced at around £300. The treatment is a pretty straight forward procedure. The dentist first removes the original porcelain on the tooth and then takes a mould of what is left and then sends this off to a lab for the veneers to be made. In the meantime, you will be fitted with temporary veneers for a couple of weeks. On their arrival, they are cemented in place and sealed with a curing lamp. If you are in a hurry however, CEREC treatment allows this whole process to be completed in around an hour, as the veneers can be manufactured on site and price-wise, it’s pretty much the same.
