When you have a less than perfect smile, it can seriously impact on your confidence. It can cause you to smile with your mouth closed in photos and even stop you from attending parties and other social gatherings.
You may have considered cosmetic dentistry as an option to ease your smile woes and with more dentists offering cosmetic options, you are spoilt for choice as to which dentist to choose. However, if you are looking for something a bit more advanced than simple tooth whitening and a little less than a dental implant to give you that perfect smile, you may have thought about the fitting of porcelain veneers in Liverpool.
But why should you consider porcelain veneers over procedures like whitening to improve your smile?
Assuming you have chosen to have porcelain veneers to improve the overall colour of your teeth, you may be surprised to learn that the fitting of any porcelain veneers is actually, on average, quicker than a basic tooth whitening session.
If your teeth are very yellow or stained, it may take your dentist up to 2 long visits to restore and lighten their colour. Porcelain veneers can be fitted in one sitting and are ready to go as soon as you leave the dentist’s office. Perfect if you have a busy lifestyle.
Of course, minor imperfections in the mouth can be fixed with having customised veneers fitted. When you have minor gaps in between your teeth, it can create a very asymmetric and gapped look. The porcelain tooth coverings can be fitted to fill these gaps and create a striking difference in the appearance of your smile.
Through wear and tear, our teeth may be prone to accumulating minor chips and cracks. This can cause the tooth to weaken and may lead to bacteria entering the tooth through the cavity.
Porcelain veneers not only cover any cracks or chips, but they aid in strengthening the teeth, making them more secure and robust.
With correct care and regular dental visits, porcelain veneers should last up to 15 years, making them extremely long lasting.
If they do fall off before this, a simple trip to a dentist will enable you to have them replaced without issue, with no discomfort or damage to your teeth.
A great benefit of veneers is their easy maintenance; you will not require any additional trips to the hygienist and you will not have to buy any additional dental products to keep them looking their best.
Simply continue with your regular dental routine and, as long as you are attending the dentist regularly, they will stay in great shape.
Porcelain veneers are a quick, long lasting, time efficient confidence booster that can create a more symmetrical and overall whiter smile. If you feel they are for you, contact your dentist today for more information so that you can get that smile that you want. It’s as easy as picking up the phone!
