There are many dental problems that can spoil the appearance of the teeth and make people ashamed of their smiles. In some cases this can be the source of real emotional problems that affects self-confidence and self-esteem but there are ways to improve your smile with various cosmetic dentistry treatments.
One of the most effective of these treatments involves having a set of dental veneers fitted. These are thin ceramic shells that fit over the top of the existing teeth restoring the size, colour and shape of damaged teeth. This damage could have occurred as the result of discolouration, worn enamel or even structural damage to the teeth.
The veneers are made of porcelain and will be specially designed to compliment your mouth and smile. Your City of London will construct the veneers according to dental mould or digital x-rays taken at an earlier appointment. Modern fabrication techniques have radically shortened the time it takes to make veneers and the finished product is now of a superior quality.
The veneers are cemented in place using dental bonding, a resin substance that is very hard wearing, adding another layer of protection to the teeth. The ceramic itself is also very tough and will protect the teeth from further damage. You may have seen the incredible effects possible using the latest veneer techniques on one of the many TV makeover shows that populate our screens at the moment.
Porcelain is such a good choice for veneers as it very closely resembles actual tooth enamel even to the point of being slightly transparent. This means that not only will your teeth look and feel great, but they will also look very realistic. Find out more about veneers at your dentist the next time you go for a check up appointment.
