The visual effect of a stunning smile can easily be spoilt by just one tooth which doesn’t look right. Even if you take excellent care of your teeth, you can always have an accident which leaves one tooth chipped, cracked or even badly stained. You might then find that you don’t feel as proud of your smile as you should do. What to do about it?
An excellent option is to get your dentist to cover up the offending tooth with a porcelain dental veneer. These clever devices can fit seamlessly over an unsightly tooth and give you a sparkling smile that is great to look at. They can be fitted with incredible ease and look remarkably subtle and discreet.
Made from porcelain, these veneers can be incredibly thin and still stay adequately strong for the job of fronting a tooth. Indeed, some of these porcelain veneers have been nicknames ‘contact lenses for teeth’ because they are so thin. Porcelain won’t stain either so you won’t have to worry about your veneer becoming stained in the way that your teeth might.
You needn’t spend much time getting a veneer fitted either. The technology available in many United Kingdom dental surgeries allows dentists to fit porcelain veneers in just one, short morning or afternoon session and sometimes even shorter than that. If CEREC technology is used then, after a quick digital x-ray, a brand new porcelain veneer can be made, ready to fit on your tooth in less than ten minutes.
Take the time to ask your Leeds dentist about porcelain veneers and you might find that they are the answer to your questions about your smile.
