Have you ever wondered how celebrities get their amazing, flawless smiles? Do you dream of a beautiful white smile or hate your chipped or worn teeth? Many private dentists offer the finest cosmetic dental treatments and you will have you smiling like a star in no time.
One of the most popular treatments is veneers.
What are veneers?
Veneers are made from very thin sheets of laminated ceramic material, usually porcelain; they are shaped and coloured like natural teeth and they sit over the top of the teeth to create a flawless smile. Many people describe veneers as false nails for the teeth because they are placed over the top of the teeth in the same way as false nails sit on the nails.
Dental veneer makeovers are a very popular celebrity treatment and you can choose from different shades and shapes to emanate your favourite celebrity smile.
Who can benefit from a dental veneer makeover?
Anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their smile and has their natural teeth intact and in good health can benefit from dental veneers. Veneers are most commonly used to address problems, including chipped and worn teeth, small spaces between the teeth and discoloured teeth. Veneers can make a dramatic difference to your smile and this boosts your confidence, as well as giving you a gorgeous looking smile.
What does treatment involve?
Treatment involves two key phases; during the first phase, your dentist will talk to you about the kind of look you want to achieve through treatment and they will help you to design your new smile. Your teeth will then be prepared; this is done to make space for the new veneers; in some cases, preparation is not required because the veneers are very thin. Once the teeth have been prepared (if necessary), an impression of the teeth will be created; this will be used as a template for the new veneers. Once the veneers are ready, they will be placed in position and glued to the teeth using strong dental adhesive. You are then ready to show off your incredible new smile!
Veneers do not last forever, but they should last for several years provided that you look after them well; after treatment, you will be advised to see your dentist on a regular basis so that they can check your veneers and keep an eye on your oral health.
