Being unhappy with the appearance of your teeth can cause a loss of self-confidence and make it hard for you to smile openly or even look people in the eye. There are many problems that can affect the appearance of the teeth, or perhaps they just developed unevenly or had a natural susceptibility to enamel erosion. But there is hope, using one of the many cosmetic dentistry treatments now widely available.
One of the most spectacular and dependable cosmetic treatments is porcelain veneers. This involves cementing shell-like ceramic caps over the top of the existing teeth to improve the shape, colour and size of the teeth. The veneers will be especially designed for your teeth by a Chepstow dentist according to your own specifications.
Porcelain veneers are particularly useful for patients suffering teeth that are discoloured or stained, unevenly spaced teeth or teeth that are suffering from enamel erosion. Once fixed in place, the veneers will not only look great but they will also add another dimension of protection to your teeth. Porcelain is the material of choice for veneers because not only is it very durable and tough, but it also resembles tooth enamel in both colour and texture, even having a similar translucent quality.
Porcelain veneers are not the cheapest dental treatment but when you experience the possibilities of treatment you will realise that they are definitely worth the price. If well looked after, a set of porcelain veneers will last in excess of twenty years and will help to bring back lost confidence and give you the self-esteem that comes from having a beautiful smile.
