There are certain things people feel they wish they could change about their body, things that make them feel self conscious. One area where this is often happens is the teeth. Even if you are careful about how you clean your teeth it can be difficult to get them to a brilliant shine. One way of achieving this without using teeth whitening is tooth veneers Essex.
Why would I want tooth veneers?
As a cosmetic procedure tooth veneers can make teeth look more attractive by adding brighter colouring. This is achieved by placing wafer thin laminates over your teeth.
Other benefits include-
- Covering chipped or broken teeth for a more complete look
- Hiding gaps between teeth
- Cover up misshapen teeth
- Durable and long lasting treatment that usually does not require any additional procedures in order to be effective
- Held in place by a very strong bonding agent so you don’t have to worry about them slipping off mid latte!
However looks are not the only aspect of how procedures like this can be beneficial. We associate people who smile with people who are positive and people are more likely to want to smile if they are confident with how their teeth look.
This has a knock on effect as people are more likely to smile and be positive around you if you are confident around them.
How does the procedure work?
The procedure is relatively quick, usually only requiring two visits to complete after the first consultation. The first visit is when the tooth is prepared with a tiny amount of enamel removed in order to get an appropriate veneer.
The second visit is when the veneer gets bonded to the teeth. In case you are worried about it looking fake or overly bright don’t! Your dentist will look at your teeth and choose a shade that is close to your natural shade but will make it look a bit brighter in order to get a good effect without making them excessively bright so that the only people who will know if you have had “work done” will be the people who look close up at your face!
How do I know if tooth veneers are right for me?
Talking with a cosmetic dentist during an initial consultation will help you decide if tooth veneers are appropriate for you. The cosmetic dentist will do scans to check your oral health and to ensure that the treatment is best suited to your needs. Furthermore it is a good opportunity for you to find out more about them and learn more about their skills and experience.
