Porcelain veneers have been around for decades helping people whose teeth have gone beyond whitening and become very jaded indeed from the general wear and tear that has attacked them over time. Porcelain is beautiful by nature anyway, but when placed in the mouth, it not only puts a glow into your smile, but it accompanies the enamel of your teeth perfectly. On average, it will only take a couple of weeks to complete the treatment. First, the enamel of the teeth needs to be removed in order to make way for the veneers and once done your dentist will take impressions of your teeth from which the veneers can be made. In the interim, you will be fitted with dummy veneers until the real ones are ready. When they are made, the dummies are taken off and the porcelain ones are cemented into place. After a quick clean up, you are ready to rock and you will be hypnotised by just how magnificent your teeth will look and how rejuvenated your smile is. Weybridge is served by the brilliant Mulberry Dental Care who is based in Surrey, so if you want to know more about this treatment, or indeed, anything about cosmetic dentistry, then just call them up because they are experts in this field.

There is a lot of natural beauty to be found in porcelain; beautifully translucent, it seems to catch the light and throw it back out again giving it a wonderful hue. This is why it is probably the most perfect material to make veneers from and then put into the mouth. If you are having lots of problems with your teeth due to years of use, this is the perfect way to cover everything up, restore the length of your teeth, and turn your smile back to what it was when you were younger. These fragile looking gems are made up from a cast taken of your teeth which on average, takes a couple of weeks, unless you go down the CEREC route, for this only takes 20 minutes to make the veneers. Which ever option you go for, the next stage involves cementing them over your old tired looking teeth, ‘cured’ by a heat source, and then gently cleaned and polished up. Though fragile to the touch, once veneers are in place, they become extremely strong and if you take care of them, they will give you at least 15 years of faithful service, which is one of the reasons why they are so well loved, that and the fact they leave with a smile that would grace Hollywood. For more information and expert advice, give Mulberry Dental Care a call; though based in Surrey, Weybridge is among one of the places they serve.
