Veneers: Porcelain or Composite
This treatment involves attaching thin coverings (similar to a false finger nail) to the visible surface of existing teeth, to provide a new flawless smile. Veneers will vastly improve your appearance without the need to lose too much of the natural tooth. The treatment requires filing the surface of your teeth, before cementing the veneers on using a permanent bonding solution.
Dental veneers can be made either from Composite resin or from Porcelain and are made to perfectly fit your mouth. Some veneer materials have more longevity, some are cheaper and some require less work to fit but ultimately, all options will give you a natural look to your teeth. Your dentist will discuss the options and help you make the right choice for you.
This type of dental work is often used to correct the following dental problems:
- Spaces and small gaps between the teeth.
- Crooked or poorly shaped teeth.
- Damaged or chipped teeth.
- Permanently stained teeth that cannot be effectively whitened.
- Unsightly fillings.
- Teeth that have been ground down over time from tooth grinding.
Teeth can become stained over time by certain food, drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine, by smoking and by age. Tooth whitening can offer a new bright smile but should only be performed by a registered dental professional who will provide full instructions on how to carry out your whitening treatment.
Your Dentist will create a tailor made mouth tray, into which a whitening gel is placed and worn overnight, or for at least 4 hours. Results will be seen within two weeks of starting whitening treatment, and the length of time required to gain the desired shade of white will vary from patient to patient.
White or tooth coloured fillings provide a more natural look to teeth. They provide a mercury-free alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings which may have become unsightly over time.
White fillings can be used in the front or the back of the mouth. Your dentist can build up chipped teeth with a white filling to restore the tooth to its original look or, it can be used to close gaps, reshape uneven teeth and fill cavities caused by tooth decay.
