What are Veneers?
These thin, white coloured porcelain shells are custom made and bonded to the front surface of the teeth. The teeth receiving veneers must be intact or minimally filled so that the underlying tooth enamel can support the porcelain shells.
How Can Veneers Help My Smile?
Porcelain is used to improve the appearance of teeth and work much like the same way facelifts are done for the face. Porcelain is non-orthodontic treatment options for correcting discoloured or crooked, misaligned teeth. They are also used to correct unsightly gaps between the teeth, gummy smiles and short or small teeth. This cosmetic dental treatment is very versatile and may often be used in conjunction with other dental procedures, for example teeth whitening.
Who Can Have Porcelain Veneers and How Long Will They Last?
Porcelain is a great option for anyone with strong healthy teeth that do not have any large fillings. Your veneers should last for many years before they need replacing. You can prolong their life by making sure you have regular check-ups and hygiene appointments here at Lakeside Dental Spa and by not using your teeth to open packets or bottles as this could chip the porcelain.
