Improve your smile with dental veneers
Cosmetic Dentistry has something of a mixed reputation. On one hand it improves the appearance of smiles and faces, on the other hand, it can be perceived as feeding the insecurities of the vain. There is a not so fine line between the two. the vast majority want to improve their smile and there are some very valid reasons for it. If we assume that a patient’s teeth and gums are healthy and they are looking at improving their appearance, dental veneers can change the overall shape, colour and position of their teeth without having to remove much of the healthy tooth enamel.
If teeth are stained, chipped, have gaps between them, are twisted or out of line with the rest of the mouth, dental veneers can improve the appearance by changing all of these.
A dental veneer can be made of porcelain or hybrid composite materials. Either in the surgery or laboratory the new smile is created, the materials are shaped and bonded onto natural teeth to blend in with the remaining teeth. Bonding to natural teeth is achieved by roughing the surface of the natural tooth to create a surface that is suitable for bonding. As we are placing these tooth coloured materials onto natural teeth, the tooth translucency is not effected and in some cases it can be improved upon.
