If you’re not satisfied with your teeth, you don’t have to hide them away. Although having a smile you’re not happy with can hurt your confidence, there are cosmetic dental treatments that can make a big difference. Dental veneers are one very popular option.
Porcelain veneers help create great-looking smiles while restoring confidence and protecting the teeth to which they’re bonded.
Before getting veneers, there are lots of things you may want to know. You might wonder what you can expect from the procedure or what life will be like once you’ve had the veneers placed.
Here are the answers to some of the most common questions about dental veneers.
Dental veneers are fine custom-made porcelain shells used to improve the appearance of your teeth. Veneers are applied to the front of your teeth and can repair damage such as cracks and chips.
Once in place, veneers alter the size, shape, and colour of your teeth. Even though they’re porcelain, they look completely natural, so people won’t know they’re not your own.
Veneers can help address a range of issues. Here are some of the ways they can improve your smile:
Once placed, veneers make your teeth look brighter, healthier, and even. Best of all, they achieve this while looking realistic.
Porcelain is an excellent material. Not only does it look fantastic, but it’s durable too. This is perfect as your teeth do a lot of work.
Dental veneers are also stain resistant. That new bright smile will stay with you for a long time.
Before your veneer placement procedure, we’ll assess your teeth and discuss what you’d like us to fix.
To place your veneers, we’ll need to remove some of your enamel first. This is done to make space for your veneers. We’ll give you an anaesthetic before we do this so you feel comfortable throughout.
Your veneers are made to measure. We’ll take impressions of your teeth so they fit your teeth perfectly and match the rest of your smile. Once they’re ready, we’ll place them and bond them in position.
No. Dental whitening treatments use peroxide to remove stains and discolouration embedded in your teeth. Because your veneers are stain resistant, they won’t need whitening.
If you plan to whiten your smile, talk to us before we place your veneers, and we’ll work the two treatments around each other, so they blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Veneers are durable and long-lasting. With the proper care and attention, you can expect your veneers to last for around ten years or more.
It’s vital to care for your veneers if you want them to look great for years to come. Brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash will help you avoid dental problems that could affect your veneers.
Although they’re hardwearing, you should avoid chewing or biting anything hard. Crunching ice cubes and biting pens are examples of habits that could crack veneers.
Book checkups with us twice a year. If we keep an eye on your veneers and general dental health, we’ll see the early signs of problems in enough time to avert them.
