Christmas time is always a great excuse to indulge in that giant box of Quality Streets or After Eights, and not worry about piling on the pounds until the new year. Willy Wonka is to blame for conjuring us all with the overwhelming selection of sweet treats on the shelves that prove very hard to resist. Unfortunately, he doesn’t explain the bad effects the heavenly confectionary has upon our teeth.
Sugar lurks just about everywhere and even after swallowing a chocolate or two, traces of sugar can still be found around the mouth, and this is what bacteria thrive on. This causes severe tooth decay, enamel damage, and bad oral hygiene if teeth aren’t looked after properly. Many adults who have suffered severe tooth decay are now considering veneers. Even if their problem can be easily fixed by a brace, it seems veneers are becoming the popular option to achieve a straight, white, perfect smile. London’s dental surgeries have surprisingly seen many men pay more trips to the surgery than women. It seems the London gents are taking their appearance seriously this Christmas, and want to show off a dazzling set of teeth rather than the coffee stained ivories crying out for some tender loving care. The country’s capital have the best dental veneers London has to offer.
So what are veneers? Veneers are a wafer thin ceramic shell that covers the original tooth that has been filed down. These custom made shells are bonded onto the front of the tooth, changing the shape, size, colour and length in order to improve appearance.They are the quickest and most accurate form of treatment in order to give you the perfect yet natural look in a matter of hours. It is important that your dentist carries out a medical check on your mouth before going ahead with the veneers procedure. Not everyone is qualified to have veneers fitted and there are routine checks that must be carried out beforehand to prevent long term complications. So make sure you do your research thoroughly and chose the right dentist for you. The veneers London offer to its population are the best in the business but don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you have any doubts, go with gut instinct and reconsider who you want to carry out the procedure.
Brushing twice daily and taking good care of your teeth is always going to maintain a good appearance but for some the damage is already done. Whilst veneers may be costly, the long term benefits and boost to your confidence is money well spent. Treat yourself to a new set of gnashers and smile your way into 2013.
