Do you find yourself becoming increasingly conscious about your smile? If you’re having trouble with discoloured, chipped or wonky teeth, veneers may be the ideal solution. Not a decision taken lightly, here you’ll find relevant information to help further your knowledge and judgement as to whether this could be the procedure for you.
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of teeth, resulting in a brighter, healthier looking cosmetic appearance. Not only do they improve oral aesthetics, but veneers also provide strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.
When are veneers needed?
Designed to improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth, veneers can be applied to improve the colour of a single discoloured tooth or lighten numerous front teeth. Not only that, veneers are capable of making a chipped tooth look whole again, whilst also having the ability to help reposition teeth should they be out slightly out of line.
How do you maintain veneers?
As we would recommend with regular teeth, it’s important to continue brushing and flossing regularly to best maintain your veneers. Etwall Dental Practice dentists will also suggest that you limit stain-inducing food such as coffee to ensure optimum conditions are observed. Despite their longevity, veneers will eventually need to be replaced. Nevertheless, practicing good oral hygiene will help ensure the lifespan of your veneers reaches its full potential.
The dental team at Etwall Dental Practice are well aware of the difference a confident smile can make in your day-to-day life. It’s important to us that our patients are left feeling comfortable and not at all conscious of their teeth. We therefore encourage you to Contact Us to book a consultation so we can help bring your smile back to life.
