The Best Dental Veneers London has to Offer

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.

tim abell's insight:

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.

Even the Best Dentist in London Can’t Undo Poor Nutrition

It’s during the festive holidays that many of us can cause irreparable harm to ourselves in the name of fun and being carefree. There’s a thin line between having a great time and being reckless, as many have found out to their cost. It might seem like all these sugary snacks are ok, but what will you think when you’re shelling out thousands of pounds to the best dentist in London to fix those lovely little cavities? You might enjoy your wild night out, until it turns into a bar room brawl and a stint in the cells. In this period of excess, it’s important to look after yourself and your body. How can you do that? Well, it’s simple.


- Don’t drink too much
This is the big one. Alcohol is, of course, rather fun but it’s not very good for you. In moderation, it’s a great way to relax and enjoy yourself. The problem is in excess, it can have awful effects on your mental and physical health and it can lead to you making some very poor judgements. It should never become necessary to have a drink, it should be something that you can use to help you to escape stress, not your sole avenue. Think of it as a supplement rather than a means in itself, and you’ll end up feeling much better about yourself, with the added bonus of dropping several thousand empty calories from your diet.

- Eat well
Christmas seems to be the only time of the year when it’s socially acceptable to scoffing a dessert regardless of the time of day. Mince pies, cakes, puddings, bars of chocolate and slices of cheesecake, all usual grazing foods during the holiday period. It’s certainly delicious, but think about the damage it will be doing to your teeth and your waist size. The sheer amount of indulgence that goes on over christmas has become a seeming inevitability and now people aren’t happy unless they’re stuffing their faces with someone loaded with sugar, double cream or butter. Even if you see the best dentist London has to offer, you’re still not going to be able to put that all into your mouth, year after year, without needing some serious fillings.


- Excercise
We all tend to be rather sedentary at this time of year. It’s cold outside, the weather is almost always terrible, the endless gorgings leave us bloated and sleepy, unwilling to venture too far away from the sofas and the comfy chairs. It’s all rather twisted though, because our increased consumption and disregard for nutrition will inevitably cause problems that only a good long walk or an hour at the gym will fix. It may not be ideal, and working out may not feel relaxing, but a little work out over christmas can save you weeks of extra stress once everything is over and none of your clothes even come close to fitting anymore.

Dental Statistics

While celebrities can spend up to £10,000 on dental and orthodontic work, you can achieve the perfect smile without breaking the bank. With so many different treatments available

tim abell's insight:

Last year if you were to walk into your local dental surgery with a photograph of Cheryl Cole and ask: “Can you give me a smile like hers please?”, it would have taken a lot of anesthetic, drilling, filling and pain.

Oh how times have changed. Over the past five years the celebrity cult is forever influencing society throughout the media, and it has left a rather bitter taste in our mouths. The majority now  crave the ‘perfect look’ but more importantly, perfect teeth. Dentists are astonished at how many clients ask for teeth like someone else, and that someone else being a well known celebrity. The celebrity obsession has positively boosted the dental and orthodontic industry. You have to be extremely lucky to have a straight set of natural pearly whites, but there is no harm in spending money to achieve a beautiful smile that a London orthodontist is happy to give.

While celebrities can spend up to £10,000 on dental and orthodontic work, you can achieve the perfect smile without breaking the bank. With so many different treatments available, having your teeth straightened will not interfere with your day to day schedule all thanks to the flourishing orthodontists in London. The celebrity cult is rather detrimental in many ways, but it has resulted in many people seeking dental treatment not only for appearance reasons, but for oral and hygiene reasons too. Stats show that 56% of the population consider orthodontic treatment for self esteem issues. First impressions always count and it’s what we always remember. Who wouldn’t want David Beckhams dazzling smile?

It isn’t just communication devices that feature cutting-edge technology in today’s world, the dental industry is starting to get ‘smart’. There’s an up and coming type of brace called the ‘smart bracket’, a orthodontic treatment that includes microchips inside the brackets in order to detect how much force is needed on the tooth’s interface. The main aim being to reduce time, money and discomfort for the patient, this has become increasingly popular among celebrities. However this is a rather expensive process. There is of course the regular braces people are accustomed to, which many are horrified by, and now only chosen by some. The ceramic braces are clear and blend to the natural tooth’s enamel, these are the most popular among adolescents as these are visually appealing. The idea of lingual braces are tempting at first due to them being fitted at the back of the teeth so they are virtually invisible, but this type of brace can lead to discomfort and complications such as speech problems and damage to the tongue. Finally, the Invisalign brace is totally invisible, hence the name, and is the best for oral hygiene as it is easy to remove when eating, brushing and flossing. This type of brace is best for people whose orthodontic treatment isn’t too complicated as it is a gradual yet effective process. All these types of braces are available from London orthodontists, guaranteed to give you the perfect celebrity smile.

Once you give up sugar, you can never go back, not truly. Whereas you would have once needed 2 spoons of sugar in your tea, after you’ve gone  without for a few months, a single sweetener will make the drink painfully sickly, like someone has dunked a huge lump of candy floss in your mug.

tim abell's insight:

Once you give up sugar, you can never go back, not truly. Whereas you would have once needed 2 spoons of sugar in your tea, after you’ve gone  without for a few months, a single sweetener will make the drink painfully sickly, like someone has dunked a huge lump of candy floss in your mug. So why give it up as your new year’s resolution, apart from the obvious reasons, like appeasing your dentist?

Well, you’d be surprised how much giving up the little granules can change your life. For a start, you won’t feel as hungry. The way sugar works in your body is to give you an immediate rush of energy and make you feel full. This encourages you to eat multiple snack- meals full of sugary gratification- that inevitably means you end up eating a lot more than you would if you simply ate balanced foods 3 or 4 times a day. Slow release energy keeps you full for longer and replaces the immediacy of sugar with a long lasting satisfaction.

Sugar’s appeal is the sudden burst of life. In some cases this can be great but in most, the little moment isn’t worth the crash afterwards. That’s how sugar addiction starts: like pretty much every other addiction. At first, you consume it because it makes you feel amazing, and then you keep going, trying to get back to that original high. Soon, you need it to feel normal and you consume more and more in an effort to achieve some sort of rush again. A worryingly large proportion of people are addicted to sugar without ever realising it: bouncing from sugar coated cereals to jaffa cakes at lunch to an afternoon chocolate bar. Without them, they claim they wouldn’t cope, they would be much too tired. As any top nutritionist or dentist in London will tell you though, they’re not actually weary because of a lack of rest, they’re weary because they’ve trained their body to feel drained without the little white powder.

It’s the dental world in particular, that takes a dim view of “refined” white sugar, because it is so heavy linked to the vast majority of tooth decay cases that they have. Sugar creates an acidic environment in your mouth for a few hours after consumption, leading to the erosion of precious enamel and the crevices that slowly begin to form. Eating it repeatedly throughout the day, as many people do without even realising, creates a situation where tooth decay is happening almost constantly, regardless of regular brushing. That’s why pretty much every London dentist is urging their patients to cut it out of their diet: lest 2013 be riddled with cavities.
