Porcelain veneers give you the opportunity for your teeth to start afresh. Return your teeth to a natural bright white state that your proud to smile with. No longer worry about crooked and angled teeth. Veneers can completely refresh your whole look, giving a new lease of confidence and happiness. Porcelain veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry, although they can have positive benefits for your teeth they generally will not be used to fix serious dental issues.
Porcelain veneers are designed to last many years, and so with proper care (brushing and flossing are still important) you can keep your new smile for a long time. While on one hand people have never in history taken such good care of their teeth, on the other our teeth have never had to deal with such high levels of attack from our diets and environment. Our diets have gradually become more acidic as the quantities of soda and juices that we consume continues to get ever greater. Many people now lead very highly stressed lives, this often leads to frequent teeth grinding that will cause great damage to your teeth over time.
All of these things wear away at our teeth, leaving them discoloured and exposed. Porcelain veneers can help to restore your smile. Your London W1 dentist is able to remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth and in its place put a thin layer of porcelain. This technique maintains the majority of your natural tooth (unlike bridges or implants) while refreshing its appearance.
