Appearance isn’t everything but, try as we might, it does go a long way to boost our self-confidence. A winning smile can do the world of good for the soul. If, when you look in the mirror, all you see are your crooked teeth, why not get the smile makeover you deserve? Here’s how to tell if veneers are the right choice for you.
What are Veneers?
Before we get caught up in who can and can’t get veneers, and you take advantage of our free consultation, let’s start at the beginning and discuss what veneers actually are.
Porcelain veneers – the gold standard and only veneers used by CosMediSmile dentists – are ultra-thin ceramic porcelain covers that fit directly over your natural teeth. Unlike composite veneers, CosMediSmile’s custom-made porcelain veneers are strong, durable and natural in appearance.
They add a whiter, more balanced, protective layer to the front of your teeth and can:
- Mask discoloured teeth
- Fill in unwanted gaps
- Perfect the shape of your teeth
- Correct an overbite
- Improve tooth alignment
How do they work?
The first step in the veneer process is designing your new smile. In partnership with a highly skilled CosMediSmile dentist, you’ll select your preferred shade and shape of veneer and see your new smile come to life via a live 3D scan. Next, you’ll trial your veneers to ensure you’re happy with the look before they’re attached properly over your existing teeth.
To attach the veneers, your dentist will ‘prepare’ the surface by removing a small amount of enamel (less than 1mm). This roughens the front of the tooth so that the veneer can bond securely. Properly fitted and cared for CosMediSmile porcelain veneers can last up to 20 years!
Are veneers for me?
Porcelain veneers can transform your smile and boost your confidence. If you suffer from crooked or crowded teeth, your veneers may require slightly more preparation (shaving down) than someone with straight or gappy teeth. Your dedicated Cosmetic Dental Specialist can talk you through this process, and list all your options, when you take advantage of our free phone or video consult.
At CosMediSmile, our dentists approach each tooth on a case-by-case basis. Every mouth is different, and each set of veneers will be applied accordingly—if one tooth requires a lot more preparation than the others, your dentist will only do what is required of each tooth. That means no unnecessary tooth preparation.
Before you set your heart on your new set of porcelain veneers, we recommend doing a lot of research. It’s important to base your decision on what’s right for you. To get started, take advantage of our free consultation—our friendly Cosmetic Dental Specialists are waiting to talk you through all your options.
