Creating a Perfect New Smile with Veneers

If day to day life has left your teeth looking a little battle-scarred, a veneer makeover is just the thing to transform your smile. There are different types of products your dentist will use to address various problems, but primarily, they all work the same way. A veneer is a thin covering, made either of porcelain or composite resin, that coats the tooth, giving is a perfect, straight, and brilliant white finish.

Why Use Veneers?

Composite or porcelain veneers are the ideal solution for addressing minor or cosmetic issues with your teeth. These include chips, cracks, or discolouration. They can also make an incredible difference if you have gaps or slight misalignment and will completely transform your look while involving far less time and expense than orthodontic work. If your teeth are uneven in size, veneers instantly bring your smile into ideal proportion.

Veneers provide the solution when your teeth have minor cosmetic imperfections that do not warrant more extensive reconstruction work, such as crown, or where orthodontic treatment is either unnecessary or not possible.

If your teeth are chipped, discoloured, crooked or gapped, veneers could be the solution you have been searching for. As well as transforming your appearance, they will provide an enormous boost to your self-confidence, giving you a reason to show, not hide, your smile.

Different Types Of Veneers

Veneers come it two varieties, which are porcelain veneers and composite veneers. There are pros and cons to each of these, and your dentist will discuss the options in detail, tailored to your specific case.

A porcelain veneer is a shell, no thicker than a fingernail, that your dentist fits over existing teeth. This transforms the appearance of the tooth in terms of shape and colour. Veneers are made of a material that is strong but looks completely natural.

With veneers, your natural tooth is left in place, but any imperfections in terms of size and shape are addressed. This is the ideal solution if you feel one or more of your teeth are too small or are shaped differently to the rest and you want all of your teeth to appear uniform.

Composite veneers are a little different. With these, a special plastic resin in applied to a broken or crooked tooth, or where teeth are unevenly gapped. The resin bonds to your natural tooth, and the end result is an even smile with the previous imperfections removed.
