Details about Porcelain veneers
Certain substances in our diets such as red wine, coffee and tea stain our teeth, smoking also badly stains our teeth leaving them a nasty yellow colour. Also as we age our teeth become worn down due to everyday objects in contact with them. To revive your Hollywood Smile Veneers could be the answer. • Veneers are shells of porcelain which are applied to the fronts of your teeth to cover up your discoloured and worn natural teeth. • An aid which helps patients to understand veneers is their similarity to false fingernails. Your natural teeth will need to be prepared in order for you to have your veneers fitted, an anaesthetic will be administered in the appropriate areas then the dentist will reshape the fronts of your teeth, by removing the top surface using a dental drill. • A mould of your teeth will then be made and sent to the laboratory so your Veneers can be made. Whilst you are waiting for the dental laboratory to do their part you will be fitted with temporary crowns over your teeth. • When your Veneers are ready you will be asked to return to the dentist to have them fitted using a special gel to etch the surface so that they stay in place, which will be set with a bright light. Porcelain veneers should last between 5 and 10 years before they need to be replaced.
