At Wycombe Dental we pride ourselves in finding the best long term solutions for your optimal oral health, and one of the ways in which we can transform your smile is by fitting dental veneers.
For a long time, veneers have been used in cosmetic dentistry to transform the look, feel and function of the teeth, and you’ll often find many celebrity smiles have been improved by the appearance of dental veneers.
So what exactly are they?
Dental veneers are made from a thin layer of porcelain or tooth-coloured composite to fit over the front surface of the tooth, and securely bonded to give the appearance of a healthy tooth. If you are unhappy with the shape or colour of your teeth, then veneers could provide the perfect solution.
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
Veneers can correct a number of dental flaws, which is why they are such a popular cosmetic dental treatment. Here are just some of the dental problems that veneers can be used to address:
- Closing the gap – if you have gaps between your teeth and braces are not suitable or preferable to you, then having veneers fitted can change the shape and size of your tooth or teeth to bridge the gap. You’ll probably only need to visit us twice to have your veneers fitted, which is ideal if you want a quick and effective option to reduce gaps and straighten your smile.
- Bringing into line – crowded, protruding or misshapen teeth can be corrected by fitting dental veneers as their shape and size can be transformed to create a more consistent and proportioned smile.
- Hiding chips or worn down teeth – if you have a broken or chipped tooth, or perhaps one that has been worn down, veneers can help to restore the appearance so that your smile looks more even. The porcelain veneer will cover the whole of the front of your tooth, hiding any chips or cracks beneath and creating a very natural looking exterior.
- Brightening the smile – if teeth whitening is not for you or you want a way to improve the appearance of discoloured teeth, having veneers fitted could be the answer. We’ll choose the right shade of porcelain to give your tooth or teeth the lighter shade you require and as they are stain resistant you can continue to eat and drink as normal.
As you can see there are many ways in which dental veneers can transform your smile so if you’d like to find out more simply ask at your next appointment or call the Wycombe Dental team today on 01494 442922 to arrange a consultation.
