Are you ashamed and embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth? Do stained, discoloured, uneven or worn teeth stare back at you every time you look in the mirror? You might think there is nothing you can do about it and that you are resigned to a lifetime of stifling a smile in public but you would be wrong. Porcelain veneers present the perfect solution to all these problems and are capable of transforming even the most damaged teeth into a beautiful smile. But what exactly are porcelain veneers?
In the most simple sense they are ceramic caps that are fitted and cemented over the top of the existing teeth. This sounds like a very simple procedure and in reality it is, but somehow it seems to do an injustice to the incredible results that are possible with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are expertly crafted to compliment your mouth and make the teeth look white, even and healthy. They will also benefit your profile and facial structure by replacing any support lost or missing due to the poor condition of your teeth. Modern technology such as Cerec has also revolutionised the way porcelain veneers are made. They can now be manufactured in a matter of minutes, sometimes even while you wait. The results are also incredibly accurate because of the involvement of computer technology.
Porcelain veneers will last between ten and twenty years, depending on how they are looked after. Effective brushing and flossing will prolong their lifespan, just like real teeth, giving you a smile you are happy with for years to come. The veneers can then simply be replaced with a new set in the future, when the time comes. Ask a Bristol dentist for more information about porcelain veneers
