National Smile Month is the UK’s largest and longest running campaign to promote good oral health.
This year, The Oral Health Foundation has conducted research that proves your smile really is the most important physical attribute when it comes to attraction, second only to personality. With 61% admitting we have been attracted to somebody by their smile alone, this should make it even more important that your oral health becomes a high priority.
The survey revealed that only 23% of people believed the nation had ‘good teeth’ and around 50% of the population are not happy with their smile.
You have completed four weeks of appointments and now it comes, the day when you will be able to walk out of the surgery with your new dentures. They will help to improve your confidence, allowing you to eat, talk and smile without fear or concern, but how do you make sure that they stay in great condition.
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is made to fit over the front surface of the tooth, similar to the way a false nail fits over a nail.
Veneers can help to improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. By selecting the desired shade, it is possible to improve the appearance of a discoloured tooth or light all of your smile visible teeth. A veneer can also help to make a chipped tooth look whole or close small gaps between teeth where a brace would not be suitable.
