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.

When you decide to get your teeth into shape in Sunbury, there are various ways to go about doing this: a little advice may well be needed at first, so you should contact Mulberry dental care; based in Walton, Surrey, they serve the area and can guide you through your options. Essentially, the choices between having dental veneers or teeth whitening comes down to the condition of your teeth. If they are crooked, gapped, chipped or cracked, then you will need veneers to cover up these problems. They can help to turn back the years in your smile and being durable, they will last you a good 15 years if you look after them. On the flip side of veneers though, if your teeth are in pretty fine shape and only look a little jaded through discolouration, then getting them whitened is the preferable way forward. You can buy toothpastes, colouring pens and home DIY bleaching kits if you fancy taking the job on yourself, but you can get the state-of-the-art laser bleaching done by your dentist, quickly and cheaply. Whatever you decide on, both the final results from veneers and whitening are phenomenal and will transform your smile beautifully.
Dental veneers are usually more associated with covering up gaps, cracks and general wear and tear in the teeth and gums. Crooked teeth are normally rectified by the use of aligners or braces. However, in some cases, a veneer can be used as a solution to crooked teeth as well- a term known as instant orthodontics. Most dentists are very unsure about using this technique in severe crookedness as it involves removing a lot of the tooth’s surface area and core below, but it is ideal where there is minimal crookedness. Once the tooth has been shaved and cleaned, it’s a matter of taking a cast so that the veneer can be made, and then it is simply cemented into place, hiding any signs of problems beneath. The reason people opt for this method is that the whole treatment is over with in a couple of weeks, where the average orthodontic treatment to re-align teeth is over a year. You should first get a second opinion before setting off down this road: Mulberry dental care of Walton serve the Surbiton area and can give you all the advice you need to know about going down this route. It may not be what you want to hear and you may still yet have to wear braces, but the advice will be the best around.
In general, veneers are usually fitted to people after the age of thirty whose teeth have become jaded with age. They are easy to fit, look beautiful and cover up many ills. They are also strong and can last a good 15 years if treated well. Of course, things do go wrong like damage for example and so the veneer will have to be replaced. As a rule, you can have veneers replaced as many times as is needed so long as the tooth structure below the veneer remains healthy. In the case of ultra thin veneers, this means as long as the enamel of the tooth remains healthy; for thicker veneers that require the removal of the tooth’s enamel, it’s as long as the core of the tooth is healthy. Overall, veneers do very little damage to the status quo of the teeth meaning they can be replaced as often as you like and this will be likely anyway as your teeth, gums and the bite of your mouth changes as you get older.

On very few occasions, the odd report comes in from a patient that their porcelain veneers have discoloured and turned yellow. The thing is about porcelain is not only is it an amazingly beautiful material that can transform the way you smile, but it is also durable and highly resistant to staining. Now if you are a heavy smoker and love your red wine and coffee, the veneers will start to discolour and become yellowish. But it doesn’t mean to say that the porcelain has become stained, just that you need to cut back on your excesses and clean your teeth better. However, the more likely reason for veneers to become yellow stems from the way they are fitted. If the cement is poor, or so is the fitting, the staining can seep in from behind the veneer and yellow it that way. Of course, our lives change over the years: when you have veneers fitted originally, they are colour coded to match the rest of your teeth, but if you have your teeth whitened somewhere down the line, the new whiteness of your teeth can make your veneers appear yellow in appearance. For all you need to know about this and other issues with your veneers in Molesey, Mulberry dental care of Walton serve your area and can give you the best advice around.
When it comes to choosing a way of getting your smile back on track again, there is a lot of choice, but it essentially comes down to two main options, tooth whitening or dental veneers. However, this is not as hard a dilemma as you may think because it all comes down to what condition your teeth are in. If your teeth have suffered over the years from wearing down, cracking, gaps, receding gums, chips and fading colour, whitening will simply just not be enough to cover these flaws and the only way you can restore the smile you once had, veneers are the best option: there are a lot of choices here too, so you should talk to someone like your dentist or Mulberry Dental Care who are based in Walton, Surrey, but who also serve the Sunbury area. On the other hand, your teeth may well be in pretty hot shape and so all you’ll need to do is to get them whitened: again, lots of choice so shop around and get advice before you start. You can do this in the comfort of your own home or for a few dollars more, you can pop along to the dentist with your money and get the latest laser whitening technology in an hour’s session. Both veneers and whitening have their equally beautiful place in dentistry- it’s just down to how your teeth are that makes the choice for you.
In years gone by, it was generally perceived that to get your crooked old teeth straightened, you would have orthodontic treatment in the form of a brace or an aligner. But in some cases, this can be a long treatment and a seemingly unnecessary one if only the odd tooth is causing you a problem with your smile. Now in this instant, it does seem an awful lot of brace-wearing time for just the odd tooth, which is why people turn to Veneers to get over the problem. A dentist will first take X-rays of the problem to see if a veneer is viable and if so, get then get to work on you. The teeth must first be prepared by shaving away the part of the tooth that offends. Then a cast can be taken and sent off to a lab so that the veneer can be made. When it returns, the new fitting is cemented into place and then ‘cured’ with a heat source: all of this is done in a couple of weeks which is what makes it more attractive than wearing a brace, and it’s cheaper too. Mulberry Dental Care serves Surbiton and can give you top drawer advice on this treatment, along with your dentist as well.
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.
