Porcelain Veneers are the answer to anyone who has wanted to share their smile with the rest of the world but was too embarrassed to do so because of the appearance of their teeth.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are fine strips of material, made out of ceramic, that are bonded to the tooth’s surface by use of a special long lasting adhesive. The thin strips are made to look exactly like a tooth making them easy to pass off as natural.
Porcelain Veneers serve all sorts of purposes when it comes to smile aesthetics and come highly recommended for people who may have gaps in their teeth, cracked teeth, chips, misaligned teeth, spaces, asymmetry or deep stains in their teeth that may cause unsightly discolorations. This is the long awaited answer to the confidence you lack in your smile. Having porcelain veneers will nor jeopardise your original teeth integrity and nothing extra is needed to be done to them provided you have been taking care of them. Moreover, porcelain veneers compliment your lifestyle and you do not need to worry about easy staining as the material is more resistant to stains that accumulate during your winning and dinning and also tobacco stains. The service is bespoke to every individual and you are assured a natural looking smile.
How are Porcelain Veneers Treatments Carried Out?
Having porcelain veneer treatments are usually carried out over two dental appointments.
A consultation with a dentist is first held to explain the procedure of having a porcelain veneer. The dentist will then ask the patient’s feedback on the look and colour of the porcelain veneer they would like to have.
After that the dentist will take a sample of your tooth’s enamel to create a cast or impression of your teeth which is also know as a wax-up.
This tooth or teeth impression will be sent to a dental lab to mould a cast of your wax-up. After that the dentist will place the dental wax on the mould to see how the porcelain veneer look on your teeth.
Once the patient is happy with the look of the porcelain veneer on their teeth, another appointment will be booked to set the porcelain veneer.
Having Porcelain Veneers will improve your esteem and also eliminate the need for painful and complicated dental surgery procedures all while giving your smile a revamp to leave that lasting first impression.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, we encourage you to discuss these matters with an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
