Have you ever wondered about getting porcelain veneers? If so you might want is exactly what they are and the process involved in this cosmetic dental treatment. Veneers can be very beautiful, and are a great option if you have teeth that are discoloured or stained, and which would not respond very well to tooth whitening. They can help to minimise or close up gaps in between teeth, and are great for repairing teeth that may have minor chips or cracks in them. The main purpose for having teeth veneered is to improve appearance, and they’re often used in smile makeovers.
Anyone intending to have quite a few veneers can choose to change the overall colour of the teeth, and dental veneers are perfect for improving the shade of front teeth. If you have just one or two teeth that are slightly out of alignment then dental veneers can often be the easiest and most cost-effective way to correct them.
Your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater can provide you with beautifully crafted and designed porcelain dental veneers that will complement and enhance your smile. This treatment can often be completed within just a few weeks, and it’s minimally invasive.
The first thing to do is to book an appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater to find out more. They’ll need to examine your teeth and gums to check if this treatment is right for you. The next thing to decide is how many porcelain veneers are required. Most people choose to veneer their upper teeth, as these are the most visible, but quite often the lower teeth will benefit from having a few veneers fitted as well. You won’t necessarily have to have all the treatment done at once, as it’s quite possible to have your upper teeth veneered first and to choose to veneer your lower teeth at a later date. If you are concerned about the cost, Hyde Park Dental Clinic does offer a 0% interest-free repayment plan and once your teeth are fitted with veneers they should last at least 10 years.
The actual treatment process is very straightforward, and will simply involve your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater removing a very small amount of tooth enamel from the front surfaces of the teeth to be veneered. A typical veneer is approximately 0.5 mm in thickness so it’s very thin, but even so if it were to be fitted to an unprepared tooth it’s likely to feel too bulky and to look unnatural. Once your dentist is happy with the shape of the preparations, they’ll taken detailed impression to send to the dental laboratory along with your prescription. This includes the shade and any other details such as photographs or information that may help the dental lab construct your veneers.
The actual construction process can take a couple of weeks, after which you’ll be able to have your new veneers fitted. It’s quite possible that your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater will need to make slight adjustments to get them fitting precisely, after which they’ll be bonded into position. Even though they’re extremely thin, once they are bonded onto your teeth they are relatively strong. You need to take good care of them, including brushing twice a day and flossing once a day, and regular dental appointments with your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater will help keep them in the best possible condition, ensuring they last as long as possible.
