Being happy and confident with your smile can help you to be happy and comfortable with who you are. Our smile is one of the most distinguishing features we have and also one of the most recognisable and important. Unfortunately, there are many problems and issues with our teeth that mean that some people are not happy with them. This could be due to uneven spacing or discolouration, or even perhaps due to worn enamel. But there is a 100 per cent successful way to restore the appearance of damaged teeth that produces perfect results every time.
Porcelain dental veneers are thin ceramic, shell-like caps that are cemented over the top of the existing teeth to produce a more even and clean appearance. Porcelain is used because it resembles very closely the appearance of natural tooth enamel. It even has the translucency, which is such a distinguishing feature of tooth enamel. The veneers are manufactured specifically for your teeth and are incredibly thin. Some modern veneers are so thin they are about the same width as a contact lens. This means that, unlike in the past, little or no natural enamel needs to be removed before the veneers can be fitted. This was always drawback of old veneer technology that has now been overcome. In fact, some modern veneers are so thin they can be fixed over the top of existing dental work.
The veneers are cemented in place using dental bonding, which is also tooth coloured and adds a dimension of protection, which is then matched by the veneers themselves. Porcelain veneers will last up to twenty years of properly maintained, protecting the teeth from any further damage and completely restoring the aesthetic appearance. Harlow dentists are even able to attach the veneers in a single appointment meaning that your smile can be completely transformed in just one visit.
