Using Beautiful Porcelain Veneers to Rejuvenate Your Smile
Are you fed up with your smile? Perhaps you have thought of using cosmetic dentistry in Watton to improve it? Nowadays it’s becoming increasingly common to have cosmetic dental treatments to improve the overall look of teeth and one particularly popular procedure is to have porcelain veneers. This process is relatively non-invasive and can be hugely successful in transforming a smile. But what are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain Veneers Explained
Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that are custom-made to fit exactly over the front surfaces of your teeth. They fit closely over the front of the tooth, right down to the margin where the tooth meets the gum. Each veneer is bonded onto the tooth with special cement and the cement even comes in various different colours, making it easier for your dentist in Watton to adjust the overall shade of the veneer so it looks perfect.
You can use veneers to cover up a wide range of problems, making this treatment hugely versatile. For example porcelain veneers can be used to cover up teeth that are internally stained and which cannot be bleached during tooth whitening. If you have any small gaps in between your teeth then these can be closed up or at least minimised with porcelain veneers. Any teeth that are slightly oddly shaped or perhaps too small can be corrected with veneers and they can even be used to bring teeth that are ever so slightly protrusive back into line. Porcelain veneers can be a good alternative to teeth straightening in Watton where it isn’t really necessary for braces.
Some people choose to have multiple veneers to cover up all the teeth visible whenever they smile or talk but this isn’t always necessary and you may only need one or two well-placed veneers to make a real difference to your smile. In fact dental veneers can be excellent when used in combination with other treatments including tooth whitening and white fillings. This means your dentist in Watton can whiten your teeth or replace any old and stained fillings before placing porcelain veneers where necessary. Taking this type of approach will not necessarily mean treatment is any more expensive and in fact it could even be cheaper, and it can often be the best way forward as it is the most conservative approach to improving a smile.
Finding out More about Porcelain Veneers
If you are interested in finding out more about porcelain veneers or cosmetic dentistry in Watton then the best thing to do is to contact your dentist to book a consultation. They can assess your teeth and will help you decide how many veneers are required and if treatment is best used in conjunction with any other procedures. Most people will be able to have porcelain veneers but you do need to have teeth that are strong and healthy and which don’t have any large fillings. Otherwise you might be better suited to having a porcelain crown which completely covers up the entire tooth protecting it against any further damage.
