Dental veneers are a cosmetic treatment that are aimed at improving the overall aesthetics of your teeth. They are very similar to fake finger nails but for your teeth. They are thin & durable porcelain covers that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth.
Before we carry out any cosmetic treatment we will see you first for a dental assessment where we will ensure your teeth and gums are healthy enough to have dental veneers. It is important for all cosmetic treatments that you have achieved dental health before starting them.
Am I Suitable For Dental Veneers?
If you are looking to cosmetically improve your smile please do not hesitate to call us today and we will be more than happy to discuss your options. The first step would be for a dental assessment to check your teeth over. Some of the things to take into consideration when looking at getting veneers:
- Weak teeth (can be linked with poor oral hygiene)
- Gum disease
- Teeth bruxism (clenching/grinding your teeth can damage veneers)
- Misaligned bite (if severe enough, it can put a lot of pressure on veneers)
- Wonky teeth (straightening your teeth may be recommended before having veneers)
Why Would I Want Veneers?
Veneers are a great way at giving you that "hollywood" smile you want. We can give you the ideal shade of teeth and also the ideal shapes of the individual teeth (the nice rounded edges, perfect equilibrium and symmetry).
How Many Veneers Will I Need?
This is very much case dependent on your teeth and mouth. If you show more teeth when you smile, then you will require more veneers to give you your perfect smile. The reason being, if you were only to have a few veneers on your front teeth, it will not give you the perfect symmetry of your smile midline, and the contrast between your natural teeth and the veneer teeth can look quite odd and incomplete. We always aim for dental excellence and will talk through your options carefully to ensure you leave with the results you dream of.
