Healthy white teeth with Lumineers from City of London dentist

Patients choose to have veneers for a number of reasons. Either their teeth are affected by discolouration or staining and they want to restore a healthier colour or it could be that the enamel is badly worn or damaged and the teeth a look unattractive. Whatever the reason, porcelain veneers are one if the most effective and spectacular cosmetic dentistry tools capable of stunning transformations in little more than a few appointments.
Some of the drawbacks with porcelain veneers in the past have been that they required the removal of otherwise healthy enamel in order to be able to fit comfortably over the existing teeth without appearing too big. City of London dentists were always slightly reticent to remove healthy enamel unless absolutely necessary. However, a new type of veneer has remedied this problem whole still maintaining the stunning visual appearance of veneers.
Lumineers are made from a special patented cerinate porcelain that is both incredibly durable and also extremely thin. Little thicker than a contact lens. Lumineers can be fitted to teeth without the need for enamel removal. They are so thin in fact that they can even be fitted over the top of existing dental work such as crowns and previous veneers.
If you are embarrassed by the condition of your teeth and have always wanted a beautiful smile you can be proud of, make an appointment with your dentist to see how Lumineer veneers could benefit your teeth. The veneers will create a more even and well-balanced smile with a healthy white appearance. The veneers will be specially designed for your teeth before being cemented into place using a thin layer of dental bonding. If well cared for, Lumineer veneers will last for up to twenty years before they need to be replaced.
