TOWIE’s Arg considers porcelain veneers

Wed

The Only Way Is Essex star James ‘Arg’ Argent has recently attended an appointment to see how dental veneers could improve his teeth. The 22-year old is hoping to look and feel better when standing next to girlfriend Lydia, admitting that he sometimes wonders if people are thinking ‘what’s she doing with him?’ when the pair are seen together in public.

During the consultation, Arg decided that he liked the porcelain veneers, but wasn’t keen on the ‘American white’ version, asking if there was a shade in between that and ‘Essex white.’ However, the reality star was shocked to learn that the procedure would cost him between £4,500 and £5,000. The price tag doesn’t seem to have dampened his enthusiasm though, as he later tweeted fans to find out what shade of veneers would suit him best, and asking ‘Who thinks gaps in teeth are sexy?’

TOWIE co-star Mark Wright was dubious about the decision to straighten his smile, when Arg confided with him over a game of football. ‘Don’t do all that stuff just for Lydia,’ he was told, ‘You are who you are, you are a good looking kid. Look in that mirror, at who you are, and say ‘I am Mr Argent.’ Unfortunately, Arg might have complicated things for himself as he confessed he hadn’t been to the dentist in more than ten years, saying he couldn’t remember when his last check-up was.

Dentist prosecuted for fraud after faking qualifications

Thu

Always seek qualified practitioners for procedures like dental implants, Britons have been reminded.  People having dental veneers or other treatments should always book an appointment with a properly-accredited practitioner.

This was the advice widely given this week, when a woman was prosecuted for fraud after working as a dentist for nine years despite having no qualifications.

Vinisha Sharma, 37, claimed she had a Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree from India, but had actually dropped out of the course before completing it.

She used bogus paperwork to get a job at the Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust in 2000 and has since worked in top positions at a range of other institutions.

Her deception only recently came to light and Ms Sharma has now been told she faces jail for carrying out procedures like dental implants without a licence.

Prosecuting, Andrew Evans said: “Had the hospitals known, they would never have employed her.”

This follows a similar case in Bristol earlier this month in which Samuel Harnarayan was prosecuted by the General Dental Council for claiming to be a registered dentist when he was not.

Teeth whitening and veneers ‘can take ten years off you’

Thu

Teeth whitening and veneers could help you look ten years younger. Opting for teeth whitening and dental veneers could help people to look ten years younger, it has been claimed.

Speaking to InStyle magazine, cosmetic dentistry expert Dr Joe Oliver said this kind of treatment is a much better alternative to a facelift and could result in a smile like that flashed by Cheryl Cole.

“You need to work on the colour of your teeth through whitening treatments and the proportions (size and shape) of individual teeth with the use of porcelain veneers,” he recommended.

Dr Oliver added that teeth whitening is a great treatment for people who are mostly happy with their look, but just want to see their teeth looking a few shades lighter.

He said it should last up to 12 months and “isn’t much of a commitment”.

Earlier this month, a survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that 74 per cent of people think an imperfect smile could hinder someone’s chances of landing a good job.

Dental veneers ‘correct damaged teeth’

Wed

Damaged teeth could be improved using dental veneersPeople with uneven teeth may wish to have dental veneers fitted, according to an expert.

Dental surgeon Dr Roshni Ahuja explained to the Times of India that it all depends on the amount of damage that has been done to the teeth.

According to the healthcare professional, dental veneers will usually be put in if a person has uneven teeth, gaps between each tooth or a chip somewhere.

However, she said teeth damaged by cavities may have a crown or root-cap put on them.

Dr Ahuja noted that there is no great gender divide when it comes to such procedures, saying: “There is not much disparity in male to female clientele ratio opting for cosmetic dental treatments.”

Recently, Roger Levin suggested on Dentistry HQ that the decision to get dental veneers is an emotional one for a patient rather than a needs-based choice, so healthcare professionals must be sure to offer plenty of information about the procedure.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800066185-ADNFCR

Talking to your dentist ‘can help with fears about getting dental veneers’

Mon

Dentist should be able to allay fears about dental veneers.Having a talk with your dentist can help to alleviate the fears associated with getting cosmetic dentistry work such as dental veneers done.

This is according to Dr John Reitz, who was writing in the Reading Eagle in response to a query from a reader.

She asked if it is normal to be afraid of getting in the dentist’s chair, to which Dr Reitz replied it is.

“Every dentist knows most patients are anxious and nervous about having dental work,” he commented.

The expert cited a study from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in his response, which showed that many people are apprehensive about cosmetic dentistry because of what the finished result may look like, or for fear of not liking their new smile.

However, he pointed out that good dentists will explain the entire procedure and may even be able to construct mock-ups to give an indication of the finished result.

“Discuss your concerns with your dentist and ask what options exist,” Dr Reitz urged.

Earlier this month, American Health and Beauty said dental veneers can close up gappy teeth quickly and easily.

Dental veneers ‘can fix gappy teeth quickly and easily’

Fri

Dental veneers can easily correct gappy teeth.People who have visible gaps in their teeth should consider getting dental veneers to fix the problem.

This is the suggestion of American Health and Beauty, which pointed out that many people are self-conscious about their smile when they have gaps and often avoid smiling altogether.

However, dental veneers will close the gap instantly, the article pointed out.

“Made of a durable ceramic material, they are highly resistant to staining from food or drink. Best yet, the process is quick and relatively painless,” it stated.

The Cosmetic Dentistry Guide also recommends dental veneers, which it said are mostly made of porcelain.

It said they can do for the teeth what false nails can do for the hands in terms of appearance and advised that if they are well looked-after, they should last up to ten years.

Dental veneers can be fitted by an accredited cosmetic dentist in as few as three visits.

Has London chef Gordon Ramsay had dental veneers?

Wed

TV chef Gordon Ramsay has been photographed with very even teeth, leading to speculation that he may have had veneers. Dental veneers may have improved Gordon Ramsay’s smile, according to one newspaper.

The Daily Mail has speculated that the foul-mouthed TV chef, who owns a chain of restaurants in London and across the world, has had cosmetic dentistry costing between £7,000 and £10,000.

Veneers are made from thin porcelain and fit over the front of a tooth.

His teeth seemed more even, whiter and less pointed at a recent appearance to talk about his new US television programme, a version of hit show Masterchef, on the Fox Television Critics Association summer press tour earlier this week.

The F Word star revealed recently he had had cosmetic work done on his chin, but admitted that no one had noticed until he announced it.

“Am I going to have any more work done? Of course I’m not,” he said at the time.

He claimed that Botox fan Simon Cowell had convinced him to have the fillers injected into his face.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800012289-ADNFCR

Dental veneers ‘make people look younger’

Thu

Dental veneers 'make people look younger'Having dental veneers fitted to teeth can help people appear younger, experts have claimed.

Writing for the Daily Express, Dr Aamer Khan and Lesley Reynolds Khan gave advice on how cosmetic dentistry techniques can help people to combat the signs of aging.

The pair described how porcelain veneers can disguise and brighten the appearance of teeth to give a more youthful glow.

“They [veneers] can change your whole smile and the shape and colour of the teeth as well as cover stains and close gaps,” the professionals explained.

Commenting on the procedure, the dental professionals noted that once veneers have been placed on the teeth they can last for up to 20 years without needing replacing.

Other options recommended included laser contouring – which can alter the gum line – and teeth whitening to transform the colour.

A recent article by Press Distribution noted clear braces could help straighten and realign teeth.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19881206-ADNFCR

Dental veneers ‘give a whiter smile’

Wed

Dental veneers 'give a whiter smile'Rather than spending money on over-the-counter whitening products one company has recommended having dental veneers fitted.

US company GlamSmile described how veneers give a longer-lasting and more effective result than chemical bleaching treatments.

The organisation encouraged people looking for a whiter smile to consider the benefits of having the procedure, which it explained had developed significantly over recent years and is now relatively quick and pain-free.

Patients were advised that they would no longer need to be anaesthetised while the dental work is carried out, as the process is now less invasive.

It stressed that teeth whitening toothpastes and mouth trays would have to be reused every few months in order to maintain the desired effect, whereas the veneers are good value for money, due to their durability.

Dr Albert Wesley recently advised individuals to move away from traditional bridges and opt to have dental implants fitted instead to disguise missing teeth, wxyz.com reported.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19866580-ADNFCR

Dental veneers ‘improve smiles’

Mon

Dental veneers 'improve smiles'To improve the appearance of a smile dental veneers are one of the best options available, according to one specialist.

Writing for the Reading Eagle, Dr John Reitz recommends having porcelain dental veneers fitted to the teeth to give an aesthetically pleasing look.

He explained that as people age tooth enamel wears away and this can cause teeth to chip and damage more easily.

There are other alternative treatments such as using composite to fill gaps and restore healthy look, however, veneers are a more permanent and flexible choice, the dentist stated.

Dr Reitz said: “Advances in porcelain technology have developed very thin, strong veneers that can be applied to the teeth, often without removing any tooth structure.”

To complete the overall effect, it was suggested that individuals have their teeth whitened to give a clean and healthy exterior.

Whitening teeth is a great way to freshen up and feel confident for summer, Dr Andrew Ordon recently advised readers of the Desert Sun.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19848623-ADNFCR
