Extensive list of dental procedures available from London dentist

In modern dentistry there is now a procedure for almost every eventuality, be it cosmetic or purely practical. Technological advances over the last twenty years have greatly increased the possibilities of dental treatment and significantly improved the results achievable in traditional treatments.
One of the most common dental problems is discolouration either due to age or from an outside source such as tobacco or an excess of fluoride. Teeth that have lost their colour or been stained can now be treated using a variety of different whitening systems, designed to meet specific needs. Alternatively, it is possible to cover discoloured teeth with a set of porcelain veneers which are cemented over the original teeth.
Veneers can also be used to repair teeth that have been damaged by chips or cracks. The veneer acts as a protective barrier and structural support to the tooth and restores the cosmetic procedure. For more seriously damaged teeth London dentists may choose to use a crown, which is a more solid and extensive variety of a veneer. Both crowns, veneers and dental inlays can now be made using the very latest computer technology which has radically improved both the quality and length of treatment. In fact, it is now possible to design and fit a whole set of veneers in a single appointment.
There is a list of possible dental treatments too long to name here but rest assured that whatever your particular dental concern there is a dental procedure available that can restore or improve the appearance of your teeth. And as treatments become more available they also become more affordable. Make an appointment with your dentist to see what they could do for your teeth.
