Treat Yourself to a Hollywood Smile!

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

3492515_blogCelebrities are well known for their sparkly teeth. In fact, it’s getting harder and harder to spot a celebrity who doesn’t have a perfect set of teeth these days. Why? Because there are so many treatments available nowadays to enhance, correct and perfect a person’s teeth, not only for oral health reasons but for aesthetic reasons too. Treatments include teeth whitening procedures, laser gum sculpting, invisible braces and much more, but we’re going to look at veneers in particular.

Veneer treatment for that Hollywood smile

A veneer is a wafer thin almost shield like covering made from composite or porcelain. As with other composite materials, a composite veneer can be colour matched using a shade guide to fit in with the rest of the teeth so that you end up with your desired shade.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are stronger and much more durable and therefore last longer than the composite veneers. Because they need replacing less, this means they could end up saving you money in the long run, despite costing more. Porcelain veneers last between 5-10 years compared to the drastically shorter 1-2 year life span of the composites. It is important to note that not all dentists specialise in cosmetic dentistry so find a practice where cosmetic dentistry is the main forte. We offer porcelain veneers at City Dental Leeds so do contact us for more information.

Make Your Smile Clear with a Dental Veneer

Monday, July 13th, 2015

3492515_blogStudies show that most of us long for a more attractive smile and with amazing treatments like dental veneers around, a perfect smile is more accessible and obtainable than ever before. If you want to look and feel like a red carpet star very time you speak in public or pose for a photograph, veneers could be the answer.

About veneers

Veneer treatment is amazingly effective, but it’s also really simple. We create custom-made veneers to suit your dental needs and design a new aesthetic that matches your idea of the dream smile. Veneers are extremely thin and light shells, usually made from porcelain, fixed onto your natural teeth to produce a stunning new look. We can use single veneers to cover imperfections and issues such as a stained tooth or worn edges, or we can fit a full set of veneers for those who dream of a flawless, sparkling smile. We use veneers to transform the smile and they are also a versatile option for common cosmetic problems, including gaps between the teeth, chips and misshapen teeth.

Veneer treatment: what does the process involve?

You may be surprised to hear that with veneers, we can transform your smile in just two to three weeks. Before you start treatment, we invite you to a consultation to discuss the treatment in detail and check your teeth. During the consultation we also talk you through the process and ask if you have any questions. If you decide to go ahead, we then start preparing your teeth, a process that involves removing a very fine layer of the tooth surface. This stage is necessary to make room for the veneers and facilitate bonding when the new veneers are placed on your teeth. We then create impressions of your teeth and these are used by highly skilled dental technicians to manufacture bespoke veneers. Around two weeks later, we will schedule another appointment to fit your veneers. We place them on your teeth, check that you are happy with your new look and then fix them firmly onto the teeth.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers should last for several years, but the exact lifespan will depend on the type of veneer, the material used and the way you care for your veneers. When you have your veneers fitted, your dentist will talk you through the cleaning and maintenance process so that you can enjoy your new smile for years to come.

Imperfections Vanish with Extraordinary Veneers

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Beautiful young lady smilingIf dental imperfections affect your confidence when you smile, veneers could be just what you need to make sure you look and feel great when your pearly whites are on show. At City Dental Leeds, we understand how important it is to be happy with the look of your smile and we have a host of incredible treatments on offer to banish dental problems for good and create stunning, bright smiles.

About veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped shells and are usually made from porcelain. They are placed on top of your natural teeth and provide an aesthetically pleasing solution for many common imperfections such as discolouration, chipped or worn teeth and gaps between the smile. There are lots of different types of veneer available and you can design your new smile by selecting the shade and shape of your veneers.

Veneers are custom-made for the individual using a set of impressions made once the teeth have been prepared. The preparation stage creates space for the veneers and involves etching the tooth surfaces and applying agent to facilitate bonding. Once the impressions have been created, they are sent away and the veneers are made by highly skilled and experienced dental technicians. When they are ready, we will then place them on your teeth and fix them into position using dental adhesive.

Veneer treatment usually takes around two to three weeks and involves two appointments.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers should last for several years providing they are well looked-after. Like natural teeth, veneers can become damaged through injury or accident and it’s important to take good care of them. The exact life-span will also depend on the type of veneer, as materials vary slightly and some systems last longer than others. Your dentist will be able to answer any questions you have about veneer treatment when you have your consultation, so don’t be afraid to ask away!
