If you are considering having veneers fitted then you may have recently had an accident that has effected your teeth or you perhaps you have fallen and chipped a tooth? Restoring that smile to its former glory is often possible using what is often referred to as the false nails of the dental industry.
With veneers being able to completely transform stained, crooked, worn, chipped and damaged teeth quickly – it is no wonder why it is such a popular method of treatment in both Hollywood and amongst the public.
Veneers are incredibly thin laminates that mimic the look of genuine teeth with a material of either composite bonding, ceramics or most often, porcelain.
Veneers are used to treat the following problems:
Crooked teeth – Stained teeth – Damaged teeth – Gaps
Exposing ourselves to copious amounts of coffee, tea, nights in with a bottle of wine and even smoking can leave our teeth looking worn and stained, sometimes these age old stains are hard to remove by teeth whitening.
These instances are perfect for veneers which are cemented to the front of the offending tooth or teeth to cover up what we would prefer to remain hidden!
Crooked and Damaged Teeth
Although veneers are not the ideal solution to teeth that are crooked, they can certainly prove to be useful. Usually veneers are used when treatments such Invisalign, Inman aligner and 6 month smiles are not feasible as they can take 12 months for results.
Therefore, if teeth are only slightly crooked, veneers can be an option to employ and restore a natural looking smile with instant alignment.
Over time, our teeth are exposed to a whole manner of things including acid erosion or grinding. If teeth have these tell tail signs that a patient would much rather people didn’t see every time they smiled, veneers can provide a fast solution and provide the perfect looking tooth.
Gaps In Smiles
Veneers can be used to symmetrically close gaps between teeth. By using 2 veneers to equally split the distance between the 2 teeth producing the gap, the entire gap can be closed instantly.
This could take years with braces, but it’s important for us to see you to discuss your best treatment options for optimal results.
The main reason people have gaps closed is for aesthetics and when waiting to close that gap simply wont do, porcelain veneers are a great solution to what would otherwise be a time consuming problem to solve.
