Cosmetic dentistry has advanced considerably in recent decades and there are now many treatments to help patients look their absolute best. A beautiful and healthy smile can make a huge difference to a patient’s appearance and self-esteem and dental veneers can contribute towards this change.
Dental veneers in Liverpool are hardly a new treatment; they have been used for years by dentists such as those at Liverpool Smile Studio. However, technological advances have made modern veneers more durable and appealing than ever.
All about veneers in Liverpool
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are used to cover the front, visible portion of the tooth. When in place, veneers blend in with the surrounding natural teeth, providing a seamless effect. This is possible because they are colour-matched to the natural teeth and because they are made of porcelain have the same semi-translucent appearance.
Veneers in Liverpool have many uses and can visibly improve the appearance of teeth that are affected by various cosmetic issues. Dental veneers can disguise cracked, chipped, misshapen, slightly misaligned and discoloured teeth.
Veneers for tooth damage
Although dental veneers can mask minor tooth damage, such as cracked and chipped teeth, dentists will first check that this damage is superficial and does compromise the proper functioning of the tooth, which can otherwise lead to infection and further dental problems.
Veneers for stained teeth
Teeth whitening does not work on all forms of teeth staining and discolouration; for example that caused by genetics. In such cases, veneers can effectively conceal permanently discoloured teeth.
Veneers for crooked teeth
A mildly crooked or rotated tooth can be disguised with dental veneers quickly and effectively, instead of spending months wearing braces. However, more involved misalignments are better dealt with using braces.
Veneers for all
Most people with dental imperfections that they feel are affecting their smile are ideal candidates for porcelain veneers in Liverpool, so long as they otherwise are in good oral health. A consultation with a dentist is the best way to find out if veneers are the right treatment for a patient’s particular cosmetic concerns. If it is not the right treatment, there are many other cosmetic dental procedures that can be explored.
