So What Exactly Are Veneers?

Veneers are made out of porcelain. They are wafer thin porcelain shells, shaped just like teeth that get bonded to your natural teeth. They are super strong and once you have veneers, you have them for life. They look natural although you can have them as white as you would like, and they genuinely work and give you a fabulous smile. The American Medical and Dental Centre (AMDC)in Dubai has a specialist department for teeth whitening, and has certainly perfected the art of the perfect Veneer! They have also managed to do this at reasonable prices.

Who is a Good Candidate for Veneers?

In previous times it was only the very wealthy who could afford veneers. That is why you would see famous actors and actresses, especially American, with straight, white, perfect teeth. Advances in technology mean that veneers are now accessible for almost all people. They are porcelain, an expensive material, but are more widely produced and therefore not too costly. Good candidates for veneers would include:-

  • People with discoloured teeth.
  • Teeth those are crooked, chipped or cracked.
  • People with gaps in their mouths.
  • Anyone with bad teeth who wants to improve on their self-esteem

    Your dentist at the dental clinic in Dubai will tell you if you are a candidate for veneers. Not everyone is and this is why you need to have an assessment first. A dentist, or dental cosmetic surgeon, will consult with you and give you options. Your options may include Veneers.

Does It Hurt To Have Veneers?

A visit to the dentist is never going to be the most pleasurable thing, but again, with advanced technology and especially at the AMDC, there is really limited pain. Your dentist will make you as comfortable as possible and will ensure that he or she works on your mouth in the most pain-free way. There may be a little discomfort; you do have to lie in the chair with your mouth wide open after all. But the pain is not at all extreme, and in most instances, veneers in Dubai are done in a high-tech, luxurious and pain-free way. Many dentists, and especially at the AMDC, use a local anaesthetic. This will always be discussed with the patient, in advance.

How Long Will My Veneers Last?

Veneers can last a lifetime, it depends on you! Most dentists will tell you that your veneers can last between 10 and 20 years. A lot of this depends on your lifestyle. If you smoke and drink, and do not brush your teeth well, you may just get 5 to 10 years. But you will definitely get those years with magnificent teeth. You do need to brush twice daily, you do need to continue flossing, and you should have your regular six monthly dental check ups. Many dentists will also suggest that you wear a night guard to prevent wear and tear.

Can I Choose How White I Want My Veneers?

The shape of your dental veneers will be tailor made to suit your mouth and your teeth. The same goes with the colour. Your dentist will choose the best shade of white that will suit your skin colour, eye colour and hair colour, while looking glamorous and natural. You may want to go an extreme white, and it is likely that your dentist will gently suggest you do not go too extreme. Very white teeth look unnatural. White teeth look great! The dentists at the AMDC will assess you and then make suggestions as to which shape and colour veneers will be best for you.

Do I Get A Mouthful Of Veneers Or Just A Few?

Most dentists will suggest veneers for your front top teeth, or your most social teeth, i.e. the ones that are seen. You can have as many teeth veneered as you want, but your dentist will explain which ones you should get done, and why. Aesthetically speaking, you want your smile to be perfect. Look in the mirror, see which teeth you can predominantly see when you smile. It is likely that these are the teeth that your dentist will suggest you have veneered.

5 Ways to Keep Your Teeth White at Your Home

Our lifestyle means that we don’t all have the whitest of teeth, although a dentist in Dubai can fix that for you. Most adults drink a lot of coffee or tea, causing grey or yellowing teeth. Very often we don’t care for our teeth when we are younger which leads to discoloured teeth when we are older Genetics plays a large part and some of us are disposed to having discoloured teeth. And our diets are often responsible for our tooth discolouration too.
Teeth whitening is a big thing, although it can be time consuming or costly. The cheapest dental implants in Dubai are done at the AMDC, although there are several other cost effective methods too.

Having your teeth whitened is pretty ‘ordinary’ these days. In the same way that people have their hair cut, their teeth straightened, go to yoga or the gym, and look after their skin, people are looking after their teeth. There are many teeth whitening products that can be used at home, safely and effectively, although most people choose to go to the dentist for teeth whitening. Technology is so advanced today that it is easy and to go to the dentist, as well as being inexpensive, but some people still prefer to do their own teeth at home.

Here are our top ways for you to keep your teeth white at home:-

1. Buy a Home Teeth Whitening Kit:

There are many home teeth whitening kits on the market. Read the instructions carefully, and follow them exactly. Home kits do work, although they can be a little messy. The beauty of having your teeth whitened by a professional is that they deal with everything from A-B, while you lay back comfortably in the chair. But you can do it at home, just read, follow the instructions and you too could have that beautiful smile.

2. Pull with Coconut Oil:

This is an interesting way to whiten your teeth, and it is a way that many naturopaths and homeopaths recommend. Oil pulling has been practiced in India for centuries, as a way of cleaning the teeth, improving overall oral hygiene and, as a way to cleanse the body and remove toxins. You should use good, pure, organic coconut oil. Generally, you use a teaspoon of the oil, swish it around in your mouth for a good twenty minutes, and then spit it out. If you are going to do this, read up on it beforehand so you know exactly what you are doing.

3. Bicarbonate of Soda:

Good old bicarb! So many people swear by this, although we are unsure about how long it takes to see your teeth getting whiter, and how long it lasts. Most of the toothpaste has a bit of baking soda or bicarbonate of soda in them. Brush with a little bicarb, twice daily, and see the difference. Spit it out after brushing as bicarb does not taste that good.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar:

There are many natural benefits to apple cider vinegar, and teeth whitening is one of them. It’s best used as a mouthwash, diluted in water. You need to gargle with the solution, and then swish it around your mouth. You may brush your teeth with the solution too. Like bicarb, the whitening effects may take a bit of time, and may not last for long, but overall, apple cider vinegar is good for cleansing and general oral health.

5. Eat the Right Fruits and Vegetables:

Eat those apples and crispy fruit and vegetables whenever you can. This is a good one for your children too, as they are probably too young to do the coconut oil pulling, or to be using bicarb of soda or apple cider vinegar. Again, we are not a hundred percent sure if this will make adult teeth whiter, but it will certainly make you overall healthier!
