The options of Dental Veneers in the City of London

Modern life in the city of London can place huge demands on us to keep up appearances. The need to look our best at all times can mean the difference between success and failure. Our teeth are the most important element in this equation, as they are normally the first thing that people see when we open our mouths. But the fast paced life in the city can also affect our teeth too. They can become worn and tired, with the seductive vices that are thrown at them, such as bad diet, drinking and smoking. Cracks can appear, they can become discoloured and the gums can start to recede, so sometimes, it’s important to ensure we keep our smile on track with a little cosmetic dentistry. Dental veneers are fantastic: they have proved time and time again that it is one of the best treatments to rejuvenate the look of teeth. For a good 15 years of your life, porcelain veneers can help to cover up all the problems of your teeth and gums and keep you smiling. They have a natural sheen and although fragile to hold in the hand, they multiply in strength when cemented over the prepared teeth (this involves the removal of the tooth’s natural enamel), making them very durable. However, there are several derivatives that offer a quick fix. Lumineers can be simply placed on the teeth without damaging the enamel. Although they have a shelf life of around 5 years, they get the job done quickly. Normally, this could take up to a couple of weeks to have both these techniques done, as the new fittings had to be sculptured in a lab. CEREC treatments in the city however, allow the whole process to be completed within a couple of hours! That should keep you smiling now, eh?
