Dental veneers in Chester
Dental veneers are used to recreate broken smiles that have either been damaged by injury or have become crooked, stained or even worn. Veneers are often used for celebrity smiles and top quality smile makeovers due to the quality of their finish.
Dental veneers are very thin laminates used to cover the outer enamel of the tooth. They can be shaped to fit the individual patient so that they look natural and are either ceramic or porcelain in material. They are cemented to the tooth’s outer layer and are superb for cosmetic aesthetics and appearance.
What type of situation can dental veneers be used?
Gaps in teeth can be resolved by creating a “false symmetry”. The veneers will be slightly wider than your original adjacent teeth to close the gap or certainly make it small by comparison. They can be used to hide stained teeth by creating a glossy and natural “cover”. Damaged teeth that are otherwise healthy can draw unwanted attention, veneers on damaged teeth cover up chips or breaks. As the damage is purely cosmetic, the tooth would not need to be removed to restore the smile.
Veneers are not ideal for teeth that are crooked or disjointed. Other treatment options may be better suited but will be longer term solutions. Veneers are are great way at “covering” up small tooth defects immediately with a natural looking shell.
