If you have an uneven smile it can make you feel self conscious. Fortunately there are options available to you. One of the best ways to create an attractive and natural looking smile is by getting Porcelain Veneers in Essex.
What are porcelain veneers?
These are tiny and incredibly thin pieces of laminated porcelain that are bonded to your teeth. They are designed to match the shades of your teeth so that they do not stand out from your natural teeth.
Who can benefit from porcelain veneers?
- If you have chipped your tooth in an accident a laminate placed over the chipped tooth masks it, creating a consistent and attractive looking smile. This also works if you have any broken teeth.
- Some people can feel self conscious about the colour of their teeth. Laminates look brighter and this generally helps people to feel more relaxed and (most crucially of all) let them smile more!
- You may have gaps between your teeth and laminates can also be used to mask these- you can only really tell if someone looks really closely!
- More cost effective than other treatments and offers a good long term solution.
What if they slip?
Porcelain veneers are kept in place with a bonding agent. This means that they will not come loose so you don’t have to worry about finding a bit of porcelain laminate in your dinner!
How long does the treatment last?
Installing porcelain veneers will usually only take a couple of visits! A tiny sample is removed from the enamel of the tooth. This then allows the dentist to prepare the veneer, ensuring that it fits the size and shape of the other teeth.
The second appointment is when the veneer is bonded to the tooth. Once this is done the veneer is permanently bonded. This then matches your current teeth but with an additional healthy look. You get the benefits of healthier looking teeth but without the fake sheen people may be afraid of when they think of cosmetic dentistry.
How do I know if it’s right for me?
The best thing to do is to come in and arrange a consultation! This will allow you to talk to the dentist about any concerns you may have as well as finding out more about their experience and whether porcelain veneers are specifically appropriate for your needs.
