While we are taught that you should not put yourself under pressure to achieve a picture perfect appearance, many of us still have our insecurities. If you are self-conscious about your smile, there are dental treatments available to help you to regain your confidence. Dental veneers offer a way to create a healthy looking smile in a way that is safe and offers quality results.
If you are considering a smile transformation, explore the benefits of dental veneers below.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are crafted from custom made thin shells of porcelain, designed to comfortably fit over the outside of your tooth. With professional treatment, your new dental veneers will offer natural looking and long lasting results.
At Riverside Dental Spa, we offer a variety of dental veneer types. This includes your choice of composite veneers, which only require a one-visit procedure. You will also have the option of ceramic veneers, which are completed in two steps. First preparing your moulds and then fitting them to your teeth.
Before and after dental veneers
How will veneers help my smile?
Since dental veneers cover the outside of your teeth, they can cover a variety of dental issues including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned or irregularly shaped teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Discoloured teeth
This includes teeth which have become discoloured due to reasons such as root canal treatment, excessive fluoride, large resin fillings and stains from drugs such as tetracycline.
Once fitted, you can look in the mirror and beam with pride at your new and healthy looking smile. You can also feel reassured in your results, as your gums will be able to tolerate the porcelain shells well, which are also resistant to staining. While preparing your dental veneers, you can also select a shade of white which will compliment your natural teeth for a brighter smile.
Caring for dental veneers
Dental veneers are a great option as they are low maintenance and do not require special aftercare. Just continue with your usual oral hygiene routine, including brushing twice daily, flossing and using an antiseptic mouthwash.
You should, however, always ask your dentist for advice and tips for aftercare if you are ever unsure.
