Dental Veneers Liverpool
Veneers are thin coverings that are bonded to the front surfaces of front teeth. They are usually made of porcelain, but can also be made of composite. They are very conservative of natural tooth structure. Veneers are indicated in cosmetic cases to correct teeth of poor shape or colour, or where there is mild crookedness or gaps between teeth. Porcelain beautifully mimics natural tooth enamel and is highly stain resistant, but such veneers need replacing should they fracture. Composite looks good, but not as superior as porcelain and is less stain resistant. However, composite veneers usually can be repaired if they chip. Porcelain veneers generally last longer than composite veneers.
- Composite from £285.00
- Porcelain from £695.00
Unlike traditional Veneers, there is typically no need for extensive drilling or unsightly acrylic temporaries. You can have the smile you’ve always wanted, in less time and with far more comfort than you ever imagined. Drill Veneers are digitally designed to be ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens), so they can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural looking smile.
Why would I need Veneers? – Dental Veneers Liverpool
The application of veneers is generally considered a cosmetic treatment, so it is not a case of needing veneers but choosing to have them to reap the benefits of a radiant, fantastic smile. Veneers can address a whole host of common aesthetic problems, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Discoloured and stained teeth
- Worn teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
We can achieve a Hollywood style smile or a natural smile depending on patient’s wishes which can make a real difference to your confidence and self-esteem.
What does treatment usually involve?
Before the veneers can be placed… Which many involve removing a very thin layer of superficial tooth in order to make space for the new veneers. If necessary, this part of the treatment process is undertaken using local anesthetic to prevent any pain. Once the teeth have been prepared your dentist will create moulds of your teeth, which will be sent to the laboratory and employed as a template for your custom-made veneers. Once they are ready, we will place them over your teeth and check the fit. After this we will fix them into position using strong dental adhesive.
What are the pros and cons of veneers?
The major benefit of veneers is that they give you a flawless smile that can compete with the stars. Treatment addresses a wide range of problems, from stained teeth to gaps between the teeth, and they can transform even the most unsightly smile into an attractive set of pearly whites. The downside of veneers is that in some cases it may require minimal removal of tooth trimming which is an irreversible process. If you have orthodontic problems, such as overcrowding, you may be advised to consider braces before getting veneers.
