Why natural products are the latest trend in dental care

Whether for ethical or health reasons, many of us are now choosing to eat ‘organic’ and using natural products on our skin and in our homes. This trend has spread to dental care with a number of brands offering natural products. You can buy toothpaste, mouthwash and whitening products made from all-natural ingredients. The products make use of the natural properties of ingredients like charcoal, essential oils (peppermint, fennel seed, tea tree), aloe vera and silica. Charcoal, for example, is a natural absorbent that can soak up stains and plaque. And aloe vera – with its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial qualities – has been used for millennia to soothe and heal all kinds of ailments.

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.

Dental Finance – We offer payment plan options & 0% finance

Dr Richard Marques provides the highest quality dental treatments. That’s why many celebrities choose him as their dentist. He is a specialist in cosmetic dental treatments, as well as facial aesthetics.

The clinic has incredibly high standards and uses only the best materials and latest techniques. So, whilst you may be able to find treatments at a lower price at other clinics, as with anything, you get what you pay for. And we think it’s worth investing in a beautiful smile.
