Over time your teeth might get damaged, chipped, or discoloured, which can make you self-conscious about their appearance. Dental veneers offer a long-term solution to all these cosmetic needs with proven results in restoring beautiful natural smiles.
What are veneers?
Dental veneers are tooth-coloured shells mostly made from resin-composite and porcelain materials that are attached to the surface of affected teeth. Veneers are thin, allowing them to comfortably bond to your teeth and improve the overall appearance. Depending on the level of damage, you can get a single veneer to cover a chipped tooth, or you can get a number of them to create a symmetrical smile that’s also evenly coloured.
At Bayswater Dentist, we ensure that all dental veneers match your preferred colour, size. The first step of the veneers process involves planning, whereby one of our dental specialists will take you through the visualization process and come up with the best design to restore your smile. This allows you to get precisely what you want, whether it’s perfectly white teeth or a natural-looking appearance or covering up damaged teeth.
Why dental veneers?
Dental veneers are a less invasive alternative to dental crowns depending on the defects or damages you are dealing with. Veneers provide a more conservative approach to fixing teeth colour, size, and shape that can also be removed easily in the future if you decide to change them out. Their ability to cover up gaps between teeth and worn-out teeth makes dental veneers a lasting and cost-effective solution. Root canal procedures and the use of tetracycline medication can also permanently stain your teeth, making dental veneers a recommendable fix.
How about maintenance?
Dental veneers will take about a week or two to go through natural adjustment after the procedure due to the changes in the size and shape of your teeth. Your dentist will check your veneers before and after the process during follow-up appointments after two weeks. However, you will not require any special maintenance apart from the usual daily flossing and brushing your teeth.
Should you get dental veneers?
Dental veneers are recommendable for anyone seeking cosmetic dental improvement with healthy gyms and no pre-existing periodontal conditions. They can help you restore a natural-looking smile without any additional maintenance procedures beyond good oral hygiene.
