Mulberry dental care of Walton serve the Molesey area and can offer advice on all aspects of dentistry, so they are the perfect people to contact about the subject of dental veneers. If your teeth are looking a tad old and the cracks are starting to show when you smile, veneers are the way to go to hide away all of your problems. They come in various forms; the most popular are porcelain veneers. The enamel first needs to be shaved off the teeth to make way for them, but then they are simply bonded on and ‘set’ with heat; they are strong and durable, and can last you a good 15 years or so. Lumineers are similar, except they are even thinner, so they can be cemented straight onto the enamel of the teeth. They aren’t as strong as porcelain veneers and so they have a shorter life-span. The other option you could go for are composite resin veneers, better know as dental bonding. These are probably the less durable of the three, but it is cheaper and easier to do, and being made up from layers of resin, they can easily be repaired if they get damaged, unlike the other two that would have to be replaced. However, in all cases, the results are tremendous and can restore your smile to its former, more youthful glory.

Dental veneers can really revolutionise a lost smile like know other treatment and they come in a couple of forms, resin or porcelain (or a derivative) and if they are treated respectfully, they should do you for a good many years. However, they aren’t indestructible and if you have an exuberant lifestyle, they may start to lose their sheen and even become yellowed, resin veneers especially, as they tend to be more porous. However, porcelain veneers should be more stabilised in their colour and resistant to natural staining. If they discolour and start to go yellow, there are three to four possible reasons for this. The first is that the veneer may have not been made properly in the first place, be it that they have been made from a cheaper material in the first place, or not glazed properly, which will allow them to discolour. The second reason is the type of products and tools that a dentist cleans your teeth with and again, this could seriously affect the glaze on the veneer. The third is your lifestyle: if you smoke a lot, and drink and eat foods that have high acidic staining qualities (coupled with a ‘flaky’ oral hygiene programme), they will start to become affected. The final example is rather bizarre: when fitted with your veneers. They are colour coded to the rest of your teeth. However, the rest of your teeth may become discoloured and if you have them whitened, chances are your veneers may look rather dull in comparison. Mulberry Dental Care of Walton Surrey serves the Molesey area and you can get all the advice you need on dental veneers.
There are a lot of options open to you in Molesey to straighten your teeth. Unfortunately, however, some of these can be quite a lengthy procedures, for which a lot of people are not prepared to sign up to.
But there are alternatives and good ones too. One such option are veneers and you can sit down with your dentist and discuss the possibilities of having veneers fitted if your teeth are healthy but you fancy a fix in just a couple of weeks.
Veneers will first involve preparation and this will mean shaving away the front surfaces of the teeth until they are flat. An imprint of your teeth is then taken and sent away so that your veneers can be made. During this time you will be fitted with temporary veneers until the proper ones come back. They will then be cemented onto your teeth and polished.
Veneers are durable and will last you a good 15 years. Your teeth no longer look crooked and are straight for the first time, giving you new feelings of confidence.
