Get instant straight teeth with porcelain veneers from a Molesey dentist

Dental veneers are specially designed shells made of porcelain, or other ceramics, that cover the surface of the teeth to cover worn enamel, uneven spacing or alignment and chips and cracks. They can provide almost instant straight teeth and because of today’s translucent quality ceramic, can look even more realistic than was previously possible. Veneers are an increasingly popular cosmetic dentistry tool being used by more patients and dentists to create the perfect smile.

Veneers are also incredibly versatile and able to help solve almost any cosmetic dentistry issue. Worn or stained enamel due to genetic disposition or lifestyle can now be covered by porcelain veneers, as can uneven or worn teeth.

Porcelain veneers are manufactured in laboratory conditions by dental technicians and are bonded to the existing teeth using various types of resin and cements. They are more expensive than ordinary composite resin veneers but last longer and appear far more realistic.

Dental veneers can be used to repair smaller dental issues such as single chips and cracks, or localized unevenness but these can also be fixed using other procedures such as bonding. Veneers work best and have a larger impact when used to re-invent a whole row of teeth, when larger discolouration or uneven spacing is more severe.

Although whitening can often be used to restore discoloured teeth, it is not always effective and will often require several processes and ongoing treatment for noticeable results. Veneers can be a long-term solution to discolouration issues. For alignment issues, the conventional treatment was usually braces, which although effective, often took years to yield results. Porcelain veneers could give you the straight, white teeth you’ve always wanted in an afternoon. A Molesey dentist can offer you a consultation to assess whether porcelain veneers are suitable for your teeth and can provide you with details of costing.
