Are you fed up with the way that your teeth look but do not want to wear braces? Or have your teeth become badly stained? Do you have gaps that have bothered you all your adult life?
Problems with your teeth can easily seem insurmountable but transforming your smile may be simpler than you think with porcelain veneers.
A sort of catch-all solution to a number of common cosmetic dental complaints, porcelain veneers really can give you a new smile.
How can porcelain veneers improve my teeth?
Depending on how complex your dental problems are it is sometimes the case that routine treatment will not be enough to fix the problem.
Porcelain veneers can help with:
- Stained teeth
- Gaps in the tooth line
- Broken teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Damaged teeth
Severe staining for example may not be hidden by teeth whitening, which works by lightening the shade of the teeth. Badly stained teeth can seriously affect your confidence, and learning that teeth whitening will not work can be demoralising.
However, porcelain veneers are an excellent solution as they fit over the existing teeth hiding the stained tooth and providing a natural finish.
If you have spent a lifetime with teeth that are crooked or uneven, porcelain veneers again present a fast and effective way to transform your teeth. Your dentist will discuss how you would like to change your smile and explain how porcelain veneers could look on your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are especially helpful when used to cover broken or damaged teeth. If the tooth has suffered a knock but not been lost the cosmetic damage can really affect your confidence. Porcelain veneers are the pathway to restoring your perfect smile without needing to have the tooth replaced.
How do porcelain veneers work?
Porcelain veneers achieve an incredibly natural finish and they are created to fit closely over the existing teeth.
To fit the veneers your dentist is likely to have to remove some of the surface of your tooth to fix the porcelain veneers neatly into the mouth.
A very thin layer of porcelain, individually moulded to fit your mouth, is then attached to the surface of the teeth and is bonded in place.
As this can be applied across the entire mouth it allows for restructuring by masking over teeth with a perfect finish. This will account for any gaps or misaligned teeth that were causing you concern.
Are porcelain veneers easy to look after?
If you have struggled with the condition of your teeth a major plus point of porcelain veneers is that they are easy to maintain.
Brushed like natural teeth, veneers do not generally stain as easily as natural teeth. However, good hygiene is incredibly important to maintain the health of the teeth underneath.
