How Many times have you enviously gazed at the flawless smiles seen on TV and in the movies? The picture-perfect smiles of Hollywood actresses, models and movie stars. Have you ever wondered to yourself, "How did they get that smile? It's so white . . . so straight . . . so, well, and perfect!" Most likely, these stunning beauties weren't born with amazing smiles.
The good news is you can enjoy a dazzling Hollywood smile, too with the help of an experienced cosmetic Dentist in Preston and porcelain veneers.
Certain concerns have stopped a lot of people from obtaining the smile they desire. That’s because traditionally, veneers have required the removal of natural tooth structure prior to restoring the smile. For that reason, many people have resisted the option of changing their smile. In fact with the latest development in dental veneering techniques and brand new materials, Cosmetic tooth veneers have become a standard way to enhance a smile. Dental veneers are faster than orthodontic treatment options and ideal if you already have some fillings that are stained or discoloured on your front teeth.
If you are one of the many people who hide their smile due to stained, crooked or chipped teeth, then you should consider dental veneers. With just a few dental visits, the application of veneers can give you healthier looking teeth that will benefit your overall appearance and lifestyle.
Veneers are made of a very thin layer of porcelain (0.5-1mm thick) which is custom made by a master ceramist in the dental laboratory to fit each individual tooth. Some people compare them to a false fingernail for your fingers, but obviously a lot more technically advanced! The colour and the shape of the Porcelain Veneers is decided by yourself and the dentist at the treatment planning stage.
Porcelain Veneers may be used to improve any of the following oral conditions:
Mask Discolouration or stains on the affected tooth
Protect and cover chips
Conceal wear and tear
Change colour of teeth
Change shape of teeth
An alternative to Orthodontic treatment
To give your tooth a ‘makeover’
Porcelain veneers last for around 10 years and cost from around £600 to £1000 per tooth depending on the type veneer used, the experience and the expertise of the cosmetic dentist performing the smile makeover. As not all dentists specialise in cosmetic dentistry, so it is important to find a dental practice that does a lot of cosmetic dental work including dental veneers.
Despite their cost, veneers are a very popular choice in cosmetic dentistry because in addition to renovating your smile, they can protect against future staining. Though the procedure is not reversible, veneers require very little tooth preparation and the procedure is non-invasive and painless.
