Considering Porcelain Veneers? Sunbury-based Lotus Smiles Dental Can Help
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, then you might want to consider porcelain veneers. Sunbury patients tell us that after experiencing porcelain veneers they have restored confidence and a new lease of life.
Veneers in Sunbury – A perfect cosmetic dentistry solution for problem teeth!
A combination of lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking coffee and red wine, plus other personal factors can over the years result in teeth that are heavily stained or blemished. Fortunately, our dentist in Sunbury can use a variety of modern cosmetic dental techniques to improve the appearance of your smile and your teeth. One of the most effective of these is dental veneers. Sunbury patients who opt for this treatment are amazed at how natural their restored smile looks.
What are porcelain dental veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer thin shells of porcelain that fit over the front surface of the tooth to conceal stains, chips, and cracks. Customised to fit your teeth they can also be used to close gaps and make your smile straighter. In comparison to lengthier restorative treatments, they’re a fast and effective way to improve your smile with very little downtime .
The benefits of porcelain veneers in Sunbury
This cosmetic dental treatment is excellent for:
- Disguising discoloured or chipped teeth
- Treating slightly misshapen or misaligned teeth
- Closing gaps in the smile, particularly when it affects the front teeth
- Treating a tooth that is too small or has irregularities
They’re a more conservative option than a dental crown and are often recommended by our Sunbury dentist if the underlying tooth is strong and healthy.
What’s the procedure?
If you’re considering veneers in Sunbury, then the first step is to arrange a consultation with the friendly dental team here at Lotus Smiles. Our dentists will discuss your treatment options and decide on a treatment plan that meets your dental needs and smile goals. Since porcelain can’t be whitened, we would normally recommend that you get teeth whitening first.
Usually two visits are required to prepare the teeth and fit the veneers.
To prepare each tooth our Sunbury dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from the front surface to make room for each veneer to be bonded into place. This is a permanent procedure and can’t be reversed. You may require a local anaesthetic for this stage of the procedure. An impression is then taken of your teeth and sent away to the dental lab, so that your porcelain veneers can be made.
The second visit will be for a fitting and to check your bite. Once everyone’s satisfied with the feel and appearance, your permanent porcelain veneers are cemented firmly into place.
