Do you know that you can get a quick and effective solution for your stained, chipped or broken teeth? With the help of veneers, you can restore your teeth to a near-perfect state.
Veneers are thin moulding materials that are bonded to the front surface of a tooth. They are usually custom-made from porcelain, but they can also be made from other materials like resin. Veneers are a quick and effective solution to chipped, broken or stained teeth and can also cover up gaps in teeth where orthodontic treatment may not really be suitable. Veneers are part of dental cosmetic treatment, and they cover only the front part of the teeth. They mimic the shape, colour and size of your teeth, making it easy to create a very natural look. To give the right colour, a precise shade of porcelain can be used to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten your front teeth.

There are other alternative options to veneers, and they include the following;
Before veneers are fitted, you will have to schedule a consultation with your dentist to ensure that veneers are right for you. When that has been settled, your tooth will then be prepared to hold the veneer, and this involves taking off a thin layer of enamel so that the veneer can be attached properly to your tooth. Although the procedure should not be painful, you may be given a local anaesthetic as a precaution.
The dentist will proceed by taking an impression of your mouth so that a bespoke veneer can be created just for you. While the veneer is being prepared, a temporary veneer may be placed over your tooth. When the veneer is ready, it will be attached to your teeth and adjusted as necessary before it is permanently secured in place.
Your veneers should be cared for the same way you would care for your normal teeth. Although your gums may feel a little sore after the procedure, know that it is perfectly normal and will settle down after a few days. The veneers can last for days with regular care that involves brushing, flossing, and regular dental appointments. Contact us at Smile Clinic London for more helpful information on veneers.
