For those looking for fast and effective results that transform a dull, drab smile into a polished, picture-perfect one, then look no further than veneers in Liverpool. This treatment is designed to last for more than 10 years when cared for correctly but only take a couple of appointments to complete.
It can take about 10 days maximum to have the veneers made, as they are designed to suit one’s face, mouth and other teeth perfectly. After this waiting period, one or two appointments, depending on the number of shells that are being used, will be needed to transform a smile.
How do they work?
Porcelain shells in the shape of teeth are extremely thin and extremely strong. They are glued on to the outer surface of teeth to create a smile that is straight, white and even. Many people have a few issues with their teeth that leave them wanting, but this treatment can address them all at once.
For example, even after professional whitening, some people do not have the beautiful white smile they are hoping to have. This may be because of their natural teeth colour, because of medication they are on, past dental treatments or even simply due to poor genetics. They could also have a chipped or broken tooth that doesn’t look quite right or a slightly crooked tooth that causes embarrassment.
Rather than undergoing several different treatments to try and restore these issues and perhaps not being completely satisfied with the appearance of the results, patients can opt to protect their smile with these porcelain shells whilst creating a completely perfect smile at the same time.
Dentists will remove a very fine layer of enamel in order to roughen up the surface of the tooth to ensure a substantial bond is made between tooth and shell. This is something like how one would roughen the surface of wood before applying a glue to make sure that it will adhere correctly.
Because some enamel has been removed, some people report an increased sensitivity or a feeling of hotness that may last for a couple of weeks. This does eventually subside and no lasting damage should be feared.
Advantages and disadvantages of the treatment
There are many advantages to having this treatment done, however there are a few potential problems that patients should be made aware of. Besides the price, which can be a thousand pounds per tooth, this treatment may not be suitable for people who have problems with gum disease or with grinding their teeth.
It is important to discuss health concerns with a dentist prior to the treatment so to receive the best possible advice and care. This treatment doesn’t last forever, but does need to be treated as such. Once the veneers become chipped or fall off, they will need to be replaced in order to maintain the integrity of the tooth.
For those people looking for an immensely effective solution to creating perfect teeth in an instant, then look no further. But one does need to look at all of the pros and cons before making up their mind to ensure this is the right option for them.
