For a dramatic improvement in the appearance of teeth with very minimal preparation needed, veneers can be a very beneficial treatment for both cosmetic and dental reasons. Veneers are thin layers of material, usually porcelain or composite, than is made to fit over the surface of a tooth, most often at the front of the mouth.
Dental veneers are usually recommended for cosmetic reasons. When we consume food or drink, our teeth can become discoloured over time. This the effects of this discolouring is often worse in cases where patients have smoked, or regularly drank red wine or other spirits. Veneers can be a necessary dental treatment in order to treat discoloured teeth and improve their appearance. By bonding veneers on to discoloured teeth at the front of the mouth, Surrey dentists can help patient’s teeth to appear much whiter and healthy looking. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, removing the worry that they will begin to discolour.
Very often, veneers Surrey is also a recommended treatment for patients with chipped teeth, or with gaps between the teeth. As well as changing the appearance of the teeth, veneers also alter the shape of teeth. By filling in the chipped surface of teeth, veneers can protect a damaged tooth from any further damage.
As veneers change the shape of teeth, they can also be used to reshape the teeth in such a way as to remove caps from between teeth. Orthodontic treatment to close adult teeth can be very difficult, whereas veneers Surrey involve a simple procedure with no need for anaesthetic or extensive preparation of the tooth. By filling in chips and gaps in teeth, veneers can significantly improve the appearance of a patient’s teeth.
As well as providing many cosmetic benefits, veneers also have dental benefits. As they provide an extra coating for teeth, dental veneers can also be used to reduce every day wear on the teeth. Veneers are recommended to both lengthen and strengthen worn teeth and can be an effective treatment for older patients with overly warn teeth.
In the past, in order to correct dental imperfections, a crown was often used to cover the tooth. Unlike a veneer, a dental crown requires preparation, and usually involves encasing a whole tooth. In contrast to this, a veneer provides a much simpler yet effective procedure, requiring much less preparation.
