Sometimes for some people, the teeth can start to look a little worn and torn and so if you’d like to keep that lovely smile of yours going, you may on occasions have to have a bit of work done and there is no better way to hide away the evils than by having veneers fitted. Lumineers are a gentler variation on the theme because it doesn’t involve the shaving away of the teeth’s enamel. These little darlings are very thin, but strong when in place and once you have been measured up and scrubbed up, the Lumineers are simply glued onto the front of your teeth. They will hide away all your ills and leave you with an immaculate smile in the process. They aren’t the strongest option to go for but they are easily replaced if something goes wrong and you can simply have them taken off if you don’t like them, without any damage done to your teeth. For more info on these little gems in Weybridge, then just give the experts Surrey Dentist a call; they serve the area and can tell you all you need to know about this treatment.

There are a lot of ways you can get your teeth into shape and looking lovely and health, but on some occasions, you may have to go a little further in order to restore that youthful look that has been ravished by cracks, gaps, receding gums and general wear and tear. Essentially, these problems need covering up and a Surrey practice suggests that you may like to take a look at Lumineers the next time you are at your dentists in Surbiton. These made from unique, patented porcelain, in a sense, they are a veneer. However, they are even thinner than your average porcelain veneer which makes them more versatile when it comes to fitting them. When you have a veneer fitted, it involves the removal of the teeth’s porcelain, but with a Lumineer, it is simply ‘glued’ onto the surface of the tooth and therefore, the process can be reversed. Being extremely thin, they do have a shorter longevity than normal veneers, but they are durable if cared for and can last you anywhere up to ten years. They are designed to be a quick fix, but once they are in the mouth, they will make a radical difference to your smile again.
Traditionally made with porcelain, veneers offered the possibility of making your smile perfectly straight and white. While veneers were effective at creating a new appearance, the thickness of the porcelain required the removal of a layer of enamel from the teeth, essentially making the procedure irreversible. Lumineers are a new type of ultra thin veneers that can be placed on top of the existing enamel without causing any discomfort or inconvenience.
If you are looking for a solution to discoloured and/or crooked teeth, speak to your Surbiton dentist about the possibilities of Lumineers veneers. With Lumineers your original teeth remain untouched, the Lumineers are bonded directly on to the surface without any need to alter your natural teeth. Unlike other veneers, Lumineers are made of patented cerinate porcelain. This type of porcelain is much stronger than others, the additional strength allow the material to be used several degress thinner than other types.
The procedure is fairly straightforward and will begin with a consultation at the dental practice in Surbiton to discuss the full range of options available to you. Lumineers are able to cover a wide range of dental issues, from stained and discoloured teeth to chipped or crooked teeth. If you decide that Lumineers are right for you the procedure is quick and easy, normally not requiring any form of anaesthetic. Using a set to specifically match your teeth and gum sizes, the Lumineers are carefully bonded over your natural teeth, creating a secure and long lasting veneer.
As we get a little older and our teeth start to get a little jaded, we can start to get a little envious of those around us in Sunbury who have lovely teeth. This is probably the time then to give Mulberry dental care a call and ask about Lumineers. These are a form of dental veneers that have been designed from a specially patented porcelain, specifically to get the job done quickly and then discarded when there life span comes to an end; the job being to take the tiredness out of your mouth and replace it with youthful exuberance. They are incredibly thin, but they get there strength when they are cemented into place. Preparation is minimal and they are simply glued onto the surface of your teeth to cover up all of the bad evidence. They are not designed to be in for the long haul, just a short sharp fix so you will be lucky to get over five years out of them, but the beauty is that the process is reversible, unlike traditional porcelain veneers that require the removal of the tooth’s enamel. But in conclusion, they will make your smile superior to what it was and stop you moaning about others- in fact, others will be moaning about you!
Everyone loves the idea of a beautiful white smile and most surgeries around Surbiton have it in their power to give you exactly that by fitting you with either veneers or Lumineers. Traditional porcelain veneers are fantastic; once you opt for these, the dentists will prepare your teeth by removing the enamel and then take a moulding of your teeth. In a couple of weeks, after the fitting has been made from the mould, they will be cemented into place to give a fantastic natural hue to the mouth. Composite resin veneers can be done on the spot. This method involves laying on several layers of resin until there is enough to sculpture into shape. Lumineers are just a hybrid derivative of the porcelain veneer except they are a lot thinner which means that you keep the enamel of your teeth and simply attach the fitting onto the surface of the tooth- which makes this process reversible. In all cases, these treatments cover up an incredible range of ageing issues in the mouth, from gaps to worn down teeth and they can turn back your smile by a good 20 years. All have their benefits so you should contact Mulberry Dental Care for advice about each one.
There are different types of cosmetic treatments around Kingston-upon-Thames that suit different people, but if you are one of those that is always on the move and need to look at your best at all times, you need to have your teeth looking at their best at all times and if something goes wrong, you will need a quick fix to get your teeth back on track. Lumineers fall perfectly into this bracket and can restore the sheen to your smile. They are an extremely thin patented-porcelain veneer that cover the surface of the tooth and hide things in a hurry. Preparation involves taking a mould of your teeth and then waiting until the lumineers have been made. Now in most cases this could take a while, but combine the lumineer with CEREC and you could be in and out in an hour because they can be made on the spot. And then, they are simply glued onto the surface of your teeth and away you go. Although they have a throw away quality to them as they have a short life span in the scheme of all cosmetic things dental-wise, but they are quite robust when fitted and the treatment can be reversed- unlike porcelain veneers.
There is a wonderful ethic about how certain treatments have evolved in dentistry: take one good idea and then expand on it; take the veneer as one such example: after shaving off the tooth’s enamel, the tiny little veneer is manufactured from an imprint taken of your mouth and then cemented into place- great idea, durable and proven. Take this forward another level and you come to the Lumineer, a very thin veneer made, again from a fine, patented porcelain. This is not as durable but then it’s not designed to be, it’s designed as something for a quick fix and then thrown away or replaced. The clue there is you can reverse this technique, unlike before, because in the preparation of the fitting, the tooth’s enamel is left on and the Lumineer simply stuck over the surface. It’s not cheap to get one and costs can vary wildly, but pop to the dentists in Sunbury and ask about the treatment, because it does give your mouth back its youth quite sensationally.
Modern dentistry offers numerous solutions not only to ailments such as tooth decay and gum disease, but also gives patients the chance to look their best by harnessing the skills of dentists who administer cosmetic dentistry procedures. Cosmetic dentistry is concerned with making patients look terrific by having a perfect smile. One increasingly popular cosmetic dentistry procedure is having Lumineers fitted. Read on to find out more.
Lumineers are a type of porcelain dental veneer, designed especially to cover up unsightly looking teeth and improve the look of your mouth. They are ideal in cases where patients have chipped, cracked or even heavily stained teeth. By fitting a thin layer of cerinate porcelain over the front of the tooth it will look a whole lot better but discreetly so.
Many other types of veneer require the dentist to remove a little of the existing tooth so that it can be accommodated successfully in the mouth. Lumineers almost never require this and it explains why they are sometime popularly known as ‘contact lenses for all your teeth’; they are that thin. Lumineers will not stain either so that if you have covered up a stained tooth you need not worry about the thing that is covering it becoming stained too.
Ask your Kingston-Upon-Thames dentist if they can carry out the Lumineer treatment to cover up your undesirable looking teeth. The procedure is quick and simple thanks to digital technology in the surgery and you will be able to walk away with a perfect looking smile. Once in place, Lumineers are so durable that you will be able to treat them just like you would the rest of the teeth and, apart from how great your smile looks, you will forget that you even have Lumineers in your mouth!
We are bombarded in Kingston-upon-Thames with the options of cosmetic dentistry. From laser treatments to veneers, we are spoilt for choice. But on the subject of veneers, they have proved their versatility and durability over the years that have made them a very popular choice. But now there are a new generation of hybrids coming onto the market that are softer on the teeth and designed simply as a quick smile makeover. Lumineers are just so, and they are the epitome of how slick cosmetic dentistry has become. Traditional veneers, for all their advantages, involve the removal of the tooth’s enamel before being attached. With lumineers, they are simply ‘glued’ over the surface of the existing tooth, rather like fake nails on a finger, which if you think of them like that, makes them a fashionable ‘must have’ for the person on the move. Wafer thin and less durable than a porcelain veneer (they are good for 5 years with care), they do give a million dollar look to the mouth and they cover a multiple of sins, just like a veneer. Tooth preparation is minimal and if you combine them with CEREC treatment, you can have a new look in less than two hours, and like fake nails, the treatment is reversible.
Veneer treatment has been around for quite a while now and it’s become a great favourite among dentists and their patients: there’s a good reason behind this. For a start, veneers are versatile and easy to fit, covering up all manner of problems such as gaps and chips. They reinstate the length of the original tooth; this may have been lost to general wear and tear over time, and restore the confidence to your smile you thought you had lost. However, having a standard veneer involves the removal of the enamel on the tooth. But now in Weybridge, you can have a patented, Lumineer fitted instead. These are wafer thin- a third of the thickness of a normal porcelain veneer but extremely strong and once you’ve been measured up, your teeth prepared and the Lumineer made up in a lab (it takes about 2 weeks, an hour if you choose CEREC treatment), they are simply cemented over the original tooth without any enamel loss. The finish and look that it gives to the mouth is remarkable and if they are well looked after and treated with respect, they should last you up to six years. The ‘thing’ with a Lumineer is, if you don’t get on with them, the treatment is reversible- they can be taken off and the tooth restored to how it was before. They are worth popping into your dentists for a look.
