As a result of programmes like "Extreme Makeover", this is becoming an ever popular choice for improving the overall appearance of your smile.
Teeth are minimally prepared and impressions are taken of your mouth. These are sent to a well respected private laboratory and thin porcelain facings are made to the exact fit of your teeth.
At the second appointment these are cemented onto your teeth and the results can be appreciated instantly. Veneers can be used to repair a single cracked tooth or one that has become discoloured as a result of trauma. They are also beneficial in aligning rotated or crooked teeth.
Some patients choose to enhance their whole smile by having a full set of veneers placed, and this route should be carefully discussed and planned with your dentist.
A study has shown that in today's population 95% of people suffer from some form of gum disease.
At Stepps Ahead Dental Care we believe our hygienist service forms an integral part of achieving total dental health.
In addition to this there is evidence to show that there is a link between gum disease and systemic conditions of the body.
There are 2 ways in which to achieve that dazzling white smile you have always dreamed of:
Take Home Trays - this procedure involves impressions being taken of your mouth in order to produce specially designed trays made to custom fit your mouth. The trays are worn with whitening gel for a short period of time, gradually lightening your teeth. This generally takes between 1-2 weeks and is a simple and cost effective way to whiten your teeth.
Zoom 2 Whitening - designed for patients that want that whiter smile as quickly as possible. This procedure is carried out in the surgery in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Teeth are isolated to protect the surrounding gums and soft tissues and the zoom whitening gel is applied to the teeth. A specially designed light is positioned and activates the gel, enhancing the whitening procedure and resulting in lighter, brighter teeth in roughly an hour. Most patients choose to use this method in combination with the take home trays in order to enhance and maintain the results that have been achieved.
