How Tooth Veneers Essex Can Benefit You

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.

Veneers Essex

Veneers Essex

The term “veneer” suggests making something shinier and more polished. And with veneers Essex you can do the same with your teeth!

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers may also be referred to as porcelain or resin based composite laminates (depending on what they are made from). They are incredibly thin shells that are placed over the teeth in order to improve the aesthetic quality and colour of the teeth.

Depending on how they are bonded with the teeth they can also change the shape or length as well.

What is the difference between porcelain and resin veneers?

Porcelain is commonly used by cosmetic dentists because they tend to have better light reflection and closely match teeth. However the advantage with the resin based veneers is that they require less enamel removal and are thinner.

Why would I want veneers?

Veneers can be placed over teeth that have become discoloured over time.
They can help replace chipped or worn down teeth
If you have crooked or uneven teeth veneers can correct this and give you a more even looking smile.
To close gaps between teeth.

How long does it take to get a veneer?

Generally it takes three visits to get veneers done. The first stage is the consultation. This is a good time to talk with your cosmetic dentist and discuss the nature of the treatment and any concerns you may have. Cosmetic dentists like Dr Basrai pride themselves on being patient and keeping you fully informed.

The thing to remember is everyone has personal needs and of course overall oral health has to be taken into consideration (for example if you smoke, regular wine and coffee drinker etc). Once this has been established scans can then be taken and if necessary dental impressions may need to be made.

After taking a small amount of enamel a veneer can be constructed by a dental lab, something that usually takes between 1 to 2 weeks. Once it arrives they may trim it in order to ensure it fits your mouth and a subsequent check up may be needed to make sure it is properly bonded with your tooth.

Are there any risks involved?

The removal of enamel can increase sensitivity. However using sensitive toothpaste and being careful while eating and drinking should help you avoid this hampering your lifestyle!

How long do veneers last?

If looked after properly they can last up to ten years.

In simple terms veneers Essex can make a big difference to your smile and increase your self confidence. Talk with a cosmetic dentist today to see how they can complete your smile!
