Four Ways We Can Give You a Brighter Smile This Autumn

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Autumn is synonymous with dark afternoons and grey skies, so what better time of year to brighten things up with a gorgeous, radiant smile? We have many treatments available to give your teeth a healthy glow, including:

  1. Tooth whitening: tooth whitening treatment is incredibly popular and it can make such a positive difference to the look of your smile without any pain or hassle. We have a selection of in-chair and at-home treatments to choose from. Our treatments use tried and tested whitening agents to lighten the shade of the enamel, giving you a glimmering new smile.
  2. Cleaning treatments: it’s brilliant to brush your teeth at home, but sometimes, you need a little extra oomph in your cleaning regime. Seeing our dental hygienists for a professional clean can remove surface stains and restore your smile’s natural whiteness.
  3. Dental bonding: if you have chipped or uneven teeth, they can become discoloured more easily. Dental bonding is a versatile technique that we can use to improve the aesthetic appeal of your smile. We use a tooth-coloured material called dental composite to patch up the teeth. This is a painless procedure, which only takes an hour.
  4. Veneers: if you want that Hollywood glow, you may wish to consider veneers. Veneers are very fine shells, usually made from porcelain, which are applied to the surface of the teeth. Veneers can give you a flawless smile in just a couple of weeks, and they’re a brilliant solution for chips, worn edges, spaces between the teeth, staining and misshapen teeth.

If you need a little extra sparkle in your life now that the summer sun has faded, why not treat yourself to a brighter smile this autumn? Call us now or get in touch online to find out more about how we can help!

Which Veneers are Right for You?

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Veneers are a very popular cosmetic solution. In years gone by, veneers were associated with the A-list, but today, they’re accessible to everyone. We are delighted to offer an extensive array of veneer systems, and we are confident that we can find the perfect match for you. If you long for a flawless smile, we can make your dreams come true in just a few weeks.

What exactly are veneers?

Veneers are very fine tooth-shaped shells, which are applied to the surface of your natural teeth to create a brand new aesthetic. We can use veneers to address a host of different cosmetic imperfections, such as chipped teeth, gaps between the teeth, worn and uneven edges, staining and misshapen teeth. There are lots of different types of veneer available, including:

Lumineers: Lumineers are different to most other types of veneers because they are made from a patented ceramic material called Cerinate, rather than porcelain. This ultra-strong material allows for increased durability and longevity, yet the veneers are only as thick as contact lenses. With Lumineers, you can enjoy a stunning, natural looking smile, which should last several years. As Lumineers veneers are so thin, minimal tooth preparation is required.

Da Vinci veneers: if you’ve ever watched TV makeover shows and seen the glowing white smiles the participants show off, you’re probably familiar with Da Vinci veneers. These are the Hollywood stars of the veneer world and they are famed for their glitz and glamour. Da Vinci veneers are tried and tested, and they are highly resistant to chips and staining.

MAC veneers: MAC veneers are up to three times stronger than traditional porcelain veneers and they are coloured from within using an array of different hues, which creates a very natural aesthetic. MAC veneers last longer than other veneers because they are made from pressed ceramics. Each MAC veneer is custom-designed for the individual.

How Lumineers veneers can illuminate your smile

Monday, May 29th, 2017

Do you dream of a radiant smile that will light up the room? If you’re hoping for a sensational summer smile, Lumineers veneers could be just the ticket.

What are Lumineers and why are they so special?

Lumineers are lightweight veneers, which are made from a patented ceramic material known as Cerinate porcelain. Although Lumineers are incredibly thin and light, they are also very strong and they can usually last up to 20 years.

Veneers are a very versatile treatment and they really are capable of transforming the look of your smile. Even if you have worn, chipped or stained teeth, you can enjoy a stunning, natural looking new smile with Lumineers. Lumineers can also be used to hide gaps between the teeth and offer an alternative to braces if the teeth are slightly misaligned.

Lumineers are different to standard porcelain veneers because they are lighter, but they are also stronger. As Lumineers are so thin, minimal tooth preparation is required before the veneers are fitted, and this means that the tooth structure can be preserved. Lumineers also last longer than most other types of veneer.

How long does Lumineer treatment take?

We are usually able to complete Lumineer treatment in just 2 sessions which usually take place 2-3 weeks apart. During the first session, we’ll plan your treatment and create impressions of your teeth. We’ll also talk to you about the treatment in more detail, and of course, we’ll be happy to answer any questions. During the second session, we’ll fit your new veneers, secure them with strong dental adhesive, and show you your brand new smile.

MAC veneers are a unique veneer treatment that creates stunning smiles. These veneers offer style as well as strength and durability and they are guaranteed to transform any smile.

About MAC veneers

MAC veneers are a type of veneer made from high-grade pressed ceramic. These veneers are designed and manufactured in California and they offer much greater durability than traditional porcelain veneers. On average, these veneers last twice as long as normal veneers and they are coloured from the inside using a range of different hues to create a beautiful, natural look.

MAC veneers are strong and they are also resistant to staining, meaning that your smile will sparkle for many years to come.

How could MAC veneers help me?

MAC veneers are capable of addressing a number of common dental and aesthetic issues, including chipped teeth, worn tooth surfaces, discolouration and staining and small spaces between the teeth. With MAC veneers, the smile will look absolutely perfect and you can enjoy greater confidence when you smile and meet new people.

The treatment process

MAC veneers are fitted in two separate appointments. During the first appointment, we will discuss the ins and outs of treatment and talk you through the process. We will also create impressions of your teeth and take photographs, which will be sent to the MicroDental Laboratory in the USA. The teeth will be gently etched to make space for the veneers.

The second appointment is the exciting part; your new veneers will be placed on top of your teeth and then firmly secured once you are happy with the look of your smile. You can then look forward to stepping outside and showing your new smile to the world!

Lumineers the Long-Lasting Tooth Veneer for Patients in Liverpool

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

There are numerous brands of veneers available from cosmetic dental practices, but there are only a select few that offer both an outstanding transformation and long-lasting results.

What is different about Lumineers?

Lumineers are incredibly thin veneers, often referred to as the ‘contact lenses’ of the veneer world. However, these veneers are not only small they are incredibly strong, using the finest materials and the most advanced techniques to create a restoration that looks exactly like a natural tooth that can last 20 years or more.

Lumineers also require very little in the way of tooth restoration, meaning the natural tooth structure underneath will be maintained. Usually when fitting a veneer a large portion of the tooth must be shaved away, which can create a difficult situation if you want to remove your veneers or change them. With Lumineers this isn’t a problem and the treatment is completely reversible.

What can Lumineers treat?

Lumineers are an almost instant treatment for a number of cosmetic problems including:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Crooked teeth

How are Lumineers fitted?

Lumineers only require two visits:

1)   You are examined by a dentist who will tell you if you are suitable for Lumineers. You will then have impressions taken of your teeth and will decide your ideal tooth shade. This information will then be sent to the specialist dental lab, who will create you new teeth.

2)   Your Lumineers are created and you return to the practice and have your Lumineers fitted.

Lumineers are only available from a small number of UK practices who are registered with the Cerinate Smile Design Studio. Liverpool Implant and Aesthetic Dental Spa are one such UK practice, able to provide this service for all their patients who are suitable for Lumineers.
