Smile you’re on camera
A beautiful, healthy smile makes you look beautiful and healthy too, so if you want perfect pearly whites then perhaps dental veneers are the answer. Quick and easy, you could have a sparkling new smile and the confidence to use it in no time.
What are they?
Dental veneers are used to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Made from very thin porcelain, ceramic or composite material, veneers are bonded to the enamel of the front of your tooth to change the colour, shape or size. They can be matched to a similar colour and shape of your other teeth so they will look natural and pleasing to the eye.
What can Veneers Correct?
Veneers can correct a whole range of different conditions, including damaged and chipped teeth, stained teeth, gaps and misaligned teeth. They are not a suitable correction for non-aesthetic problems or for teeth near the back of the mouth.
How Long Do They Last?
Porcelain veneers are quite strong and can last between 5 and 10 years, whereas a composite material will only last a short time, perhaps two years. If you look after your teeth thoroughly your veneers will last much longer- you need to make sure that you are brushing twice daily and having them professionally cleaned every 6 months.
Some Things to Consider
Once a veneer is in place, you can never go back to your natural tooth, as part of the process of fitting it is to take some of the enamel off. The veneer has to be replaced if it were to become damaged. The colour of the veneer is also permanent and cannot be changed by teeth whitening procedures.
