Christmas truly feels like it is on the way now that the lights are on in Oxford Street, but for anyone wondering how to make their smile twinkle in those Christmas party pictures, porcelain veneers could be the answer.
These veneers are thin casings of porcelain which are fixed to the front of your tooth. They cover up any stains or marks but still allow light through, meaning that they have a more natural look. They both protect damaged surfaces and create a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
Like cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers are used for teeth which are chipped, stained, uneven or damaged in some way. However, what sets them apart is their resilience and healthy look, a result of the translucent material. They are more durable and less liable to become stained than veneers made of composite. Teeth that have become worn can also be strengthened by porcelain veneers.
The procedure for having porcelain veneers fitted is relatively simple. The first appointment at Sparkle Dental Boutique near Acton consists of the teeth being meticulously shaped and a mould being taken of the ones that are to have veneers. While the final veneers are being constructed, you have the opportunity to sample how they will look with temporary veneers. If, while wearing the temporary veneers, you realise that adjustments need to be made to the size or shape, these can then be made to the final veneers.
The handmade final porcelain veneers are then fitted at the second appointment, which takes place approximately one week later. If looked after, the quality of the material means that these can last for up to 15 years, with a 3 year guarantee.
