Dental veneers are used to help people get the perfect and beautiful Hollywood smile, something more and more adults in the US and the UK are aspiring to have. With the growth of cosmetic dentistry and the continuing trend of a whiter, brighter smile, options such as dental veneers is something that many people are now exploring.
Dental veneers are quick and easy and before you know it, you will have a perfect set of pearly whites. Here we explain exactly what they are, how they work and what their benefits are.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are made from thin porcelain or ceramic, and they are used to aesthetically improve each individual tooth so that you can have an improved smile. Each veneer can be matched to the colour of your teeth or they can be used to correct the colour of your teeth and are bonded directly to tooth enamel.
Not only can veneers be used to correct the colour of your smile, but they can be used to change both size and shape of a tooth. The great thing about veneers is their natural look so no-one will ever know and they can be used to correct many different problems.
Once dental veneers are in place, you cannot reverse the process. Damaged veneers will need a full replacement as a part of the process of fitting veneers is to remove a part of your tooth enamel. The results are truly amazing and for most people, the results are definitely worth it. There are many reasons why you may want dental veneers including:
- Damaged teeth (including chips and broken teeth)
- Yellowing or stained teeth
- Gaps in your smile
- Misaligned teeth
