The Facts About Porcelain Veneers

Repairing broken and stained teeth for a great smile!

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental product which are custom designed to be applied specifically for your teeth.  They are a very useful component as part of a complete smile makeover to change your appearance.  These veneers are utilised as a smile transformation method to align, shape, and lighten attractive smiles and are able to be employed to straighten teeth that might sometimes call for the need for braces.  Porcelain dental veneers are also widely used to cosmetically enhance unsightly teeth by hiding chips, gaps and other defects.

These dental veneers are usually employed to improve the colour of stained and discoloured teeth and can also be employed to improve teeth which have been worn from clenching and grinding, also known as bruxism, which usually takes place whilst asleep.  Veneers are designed to look natural and similar in appearance to your natural teeth.  They are added to your teeth, usually on a second visit,  after an initial consultation where impressions and x-rays will be taken.  Fundamentally, modern porcelain veneers can entirely enhance the shape of your teeth and your smile.

In effect then, they are tooth coverings that are produced from an exceptionally thin lifelike porcelain or ceramic which are customised to suit your look.  They can be a superb cosmetic dental treatment as they are tailor made and coloured to match your desired smile.  They are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations and can be used along with other cosmetic dental work to improve your teeth. Porcelain veneers usually last for a good length of time if correct care is taken.

They made their first appearance in the UK during the 1980’s and are now employed in many different situations.  Although more expensive, they do last significantly longer than composite veneers.

Porcelain dental veneers can also be valuable in rebuilding cracked or misshapen teeth and can even be created to totally alter the length, size and shape of your teeth.  They are able to bring back structural integrity to your damaged teeth which will last for many years to come.  They are able to resolve many of these problems and provide you the smile you might have imagined for many years providing you with a vibrant attractive smile.

Porcelain veneers are often the building blocks of a remarkable and glowing smile makeover.  They are ideal for individuals who would like a ‘new’ smile and don’t have structural issues with their teeth. As well as being more robust than basic tooth bonding they are also much more immune to discoloration and cracking making them the perfect option for people with discoloured or slightly damaged teeth.
