Porcelain Veneers Add A Celebrity Edge To Your Smile

Friday, August 28th, 2015

2904346_blogIf you’re one of the many people who admire the perfectly straight, bright white smiles often sported by celebrities posing for red carpet shots, you may be pleased to hear that a flawless smile is now accessible to all. Gone are the days of cosmetic dental treatment being available to the rich and famous; now, you can have an amazing smile without needing a diary full of premieres to attend. With porcelain veneers, you can achieve that amazing celebrity look in no time at all.

About porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are incredibly thin sheets of laminated porcelain, which are shaped to mimic natural teeth; they are applied to the natural teeth to create a new smile. Porcelain is an ideal material because it looks similar to healthy, radiant tooth enamel and it is hard-wearing and durable.

Veneer treatment usually involves 2-3 treatment sessions including a consultation, which is used to chat about treatment, design your new smile and plan your treatment. Once you have decided what kind of look you would like to go for and chosen the shape and shade of your veneers, your dentist will prepare your teeth in order to make room for your veneers and ensure they bond properly. The preparation stage is nothing to worry about and it simply involves taking away a very fine layer of the tooth structure and etching the surface of the tooth. Impressions of your teeth will be created and these are sent away to the laboratory; here, highly skilled dental technicians will use them as moulds for your brand new veneers. Once your veneers are ready, they will be placed on your teeth and then fixed firmly into position; they should last for several years, but you will need to take good care of them.

Why would I consider veneers?

Veneers are known for creating stunning smiles and they are a versatile option; they can provide a solution for a number of common cosmetic issues, including chips, worn edges, misshapen teeth, staining and gaps between the teeth.

The perfect smile has become a focus of media attention in the last few years and many people have been inspired to have cosmetic treatment to achieve a more attractive and radiant smile. If you have chipped, stained and worn teeth or you simply want to recreate a celebrity-style smile, veneers may be the perfect choice.

Veneers are wafer-thin shells made from ceramic material (usually porcelain), which are placed on top of your natural teeth; once the veneers are in place, they create a stunning new aesthetic. There are various veneer systems available and as a patient, you have a great deal of choice in terms of the size, shape and shade of your veneers, so you really can get the smile of your dreams.

In most cases, veneer treatment can be completed in 2-3 sessions, which take place over a 2-3 week period. During the consultation stage, we plan your treatment and talk to you about the kind of aesthetic you prefer. We then create impressions of your teeth and you select your veneers. We send the impressions away to the laboratory and the new veneers should be returned within 2 weeks.

Before veneers are fitted, the teeth are prepared; this procedure is designed to make room for the veneers so that they feel comfortable and they fit without making the smile look unnatural and bulky. We simply etch away a very thin layer of the tooth surface to create space.

Once your veneers have been sent to us, we will place them on your teeth and then show you your new smile; we can then fix the veneers firmly in position once you are happy with the new look.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers should last for several years provided that they are well cared-for; some veneers last longer than others. It’s important to see your dentist on a regular basis and to keep up to date with routine check-ups.

Hide Away Stains And Chips With Our Beautiful Porcelain Veneers

Sunday, December 7th, 2014

3428792_blogWith cosmetic dentistry reaching an all-time high it is no wonder that we have seen such a surge in demand for smile makeovers recently. There is a real abundance in press and media attention surrounding the ‘perfect’ sparkly smile and clients are looking to fix any issues that they have with their teeth in order to achieve a smile that they can happily show off. Here at City Dental Leeds, we know how important it is for our consumers to feel confident with their looks, and we are able to totally transform our patients’ smiles with top end dental materials and state of the art technology.

Why choose veneers?

When patients have concerns regarding stained, worn or chipped teeth we will often recommend fixing the problem by using veneers. Porcelain veneers, which simply consist of wafer thin shells of porcelain, give the most realistic restoration and are hand crafted before being bonded to the front of your teeth. In order to do this, the front tooth surface must be very carefully prepared before placement. To ensure that clients will be happy with their final look we use temporary veneers so that they can preview the shape and colour before the permanent porcelain veneer is finally bonded. Not only are porcelain veneers great for covering up unwanted stains and chips, but they are also extremely successful when used to close gaps between teeth.

If you would like more information on our veneers then please get in touch and we will be happy to help.
