Veneers are a great way to instantly upgrade your smile. They are thin, tooth-coloured shells that are placed over your existing teeth to cover up any imperfections. Veneers can be used to fix chips, cracks, discolouration and even misaligned teeth. If you're interested in getting veneers, make sure to consult with our dentist Soho, at PS Dental Care, to see if they are the right option for you.
What are veneers and what do they do?
When it comes to dental procedures, veneers are one of the most popular. This is because they offer a wide range of benefits that can improve your oral health, appearance and overall quality of life. One of the key benefits of veneers includes a more attractive smile. Veneers can help to improve the appearance of your teeth by masking any imperfections. This makes them a popular choice for those who are self-conscious about their smile.
Veneers can also help to improve your oral health by protecting your teeth from further damage. They can also reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease as they help to seal in your natural tooth enamel.
They are also popular as they have long-lasting results. Unlike other dental procedures, veneers typically last around 10 years without requiring any additional treatment.
If you are considering getting veneers, it is important to speak with our dentist Soho to find out if they are right for you.
What is it like to get veneers?
The first step is to prepare the tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel. This is done so that the veneer will have something to attach to and will sit flush with the rest of your teeth.
Next, an impression or mould will be made of your tooth. This will be sent off to a lab where your customised veneers will be made. In the meantime, you will be given a temporary veneer to wear.
Once your veneers are ready, you will come back in for a second appointment. During this appointment, our team will apply etching gel to your tooth and then place the veneer on top. A special light will be used to harden the resin holding the bonding agent onto your tooth.
You will then be able to leave our office with your new, beautiful veneers!
Who is a good candidate for veneer treatment?
Any person who is unhappy with the appearance of their teeth may be a good candidate for veneers. Veneers can correct a wide variety of dental imperfections, including chips, cracks, crooked teeth, and gaps between teeth. They can also brighten teeth that have become stained or dull over time.
If you are considering veneer treatment, it is important to consult with our team to determine if this is the right solution for you. Our dentist Soho will evaluate your dental health and discuss your goals to determine if veneers are the best option.
What are the risks associated with getting veneers?
There are some risks associated with getting veneers. One risk is that veneers are affected by staining and whitening differently to natural enamel and may diverge from the colour of your other teeth. Another risk is that veneers may chip or crack. If this happens, you may need to have them repaired or replaced.
