Learn How Beautiful Veneers Could Help Your Smile
Very few people have perfect teeth and this is where cosmetic dentistry in Downham Market can help tremendously. But how can you know which treatments will work best? While there are a huge range of cosmetic dentistry treatments that may be useful, one of the most popular is porcelain veneers. This treatment is very versatile as it uses very thin pieces of porcelain to cover up the front surfaces of the teeth. The porcelain veneer fits exactly over the front surface of the tooth and is firmly bonded in place.
How Could Porcelain Veneers Help Your Smile?
Are some of your teeth slightly chipped or cracked, or perhaps you’d like to close up or minimise that annoying gap in between one or more of them? Maybe some of your teeth are stained, or it could be that one or two are sticking out too far or are even tilted inwards. This is where porcelain veneers can help by adjusting the overall shape and size of the tooth and even its alignment to make it more cosmetically appealing. It could be that you only require one or two porcelain veneers but some people will choose to have multiple veneers, even completely covering up all the teeth that are visible when smiling. This type of treatment is more commonly known as a smile makeover and it can look fantastic.
Advantages of Opting for a Smile Makeover Using Porcelain Veneers
If you opt for this level of treatment then one of the benefits is being able to choose your own tooth colour. You’ll be able to look at having something quite a lot lighter than your existing teeth and porcelain will not stain so the results can be very long lasting.
What about Using Veneers with Other Procedures?
Porcelain veneers can work really well when used with other cosmetic dentistry procedures and they can add the finishing touch after having orthodontics in Downham Market. For example, it could be that most of your teeth will respond well to a treatment such as teeth whitening but perhaps one or two are internally stained and cannot be brightened up in this way. In this case covering these teeth with veneers once you have finished whitening can help perfect a smile. It’s the same thing with orthodontics, as if you have a tooth that is perhaps a bit too small or irregularly shaped, covering it up with a veneer can really make the most of your orthodontic treatment.
What Else Should I Know about Having Veneers?
Although veneers are excellent, it’s worth bearing in mind that this treatment is generally irreversible. This is because your dentist in Downham Market will need to remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel from the front surfaces of your teeth. It’s almost always essential to do this to prevent the veneer from looking too bulky but does mean the tooth will always need to be protected with a veneer.
