Are You Searching For a celebrity smile?
Great news! Veneers are no longer something that is only available for the rich and famous. Advances in technology mean veneers are more affordable than you think. If your teeth have small gaps or are slightly crooked, veneers can work for you.
Many of you will be familiar with the term ‘veneers’ from watching makeover programmes on TV. Veneers are often a great way to give you a fantastic new smile.
Smile Style Veneers are custom made thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to your teeth. The process involves taking models of your mouth and building a 3D design of your new smile.
This is called a wax-up because it is created in wax. With these and digital photographs we can give you the opportunity to see what your new smile may look like.
From the models we produce templates to guide the dentist in how to prepare your teeth for veneers. This helps minimise any work need to be done on your teeth to produce the final results.
At this visit more models are made so the final veneers can be fabricated to our prescription in terms of colour and shape.
To ensure your new veneers will suit you we fit prototype veneers by exactly copying the 3D model on to your teeth. You can wear these for the whole time it takes for the final veneers to be custom made.
It also gives you the time to evaluate if you like your new smile and start to get used to the changes. Any adjustments can be made if necessary and these changes communicated to the technician so what you see will be exactly what you get, fantastic looking teeth and smile.
4 Possible Reasons Why You Should Consider Veneers
- Discoloured Teeth – Veneers can cover stained teeth that won’t respond to whitening treatments
- Damaged Teeth – Your teeth may be damaged for a number of reasons, excessive grinding for example. Veneers can also correct the appearance of chipped or broken teeth. You can also use them for teeth where the enamel has been damaged or a replacement to stop any further damage to the tooth underneath
- Gaps – Spaces between your teeth can easily be closed using veneers, giving you a more uniform-looking smile, making you feel happier
- Crooked Teeth – There are only a few cases using veneers for crooked teeth. If your teeth are not severely crooked you can use veneers to give the appearance of a perfectly straight smile
How Long Will My Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers typically last between five and ten years, while composite veneers tend to have a shorter life span. To make your veneers last longer you should treat them as your teeth need to be treated.
Also, ensure that you keep regular appointments to see us to keep your mouth as healthy as can be, try and stick to a good diet and avoid too many acidic foods and foods that can stain your teeth.
