Should I replace my veneers?

If you have veneers fitted today, they should last at least 15 years. However, as dental methods are improving all the time, it might be worth replacing existing veneers, even if they haven’t come to the end of their natural life. So, how do you know if it’s time for a replacement?

Bulky or ill-fitting veneers

Here at the clinic, we often see patients with veneers that are bulky or badly fitted. The latest veneers are thinner, giving you a much more natural look. They should also be custom-made. We always take a mould of your mouth to ensure that the veneers fit precisely to the shape of your gum line and each individual tooth.

Why charcoal is the hottest new ingredient in dental care

Charcoal Toothpaste

Most people think of charcoal as something you throw on the barbeque, but it has been used since Egyptian times for anything from purifying water to getting rid of bad smells. In Ancient Greece, Hippocrates treated his patients with charcoal and the Romans ground it up to clean their teeth.

Today, activated charcoal continues to be used in hospitals and water treatment plants. Its porous structure means it soaks up poisons and harmful chemicals. But in recent years, this ancient substance has been emerging as a hot new ingredient in the dental and beauty industry.
