Veneers in London
There are many different types of cosmetic dental treatments to improve the appearance of your teeth and a smile. An excellent method of improving the appearance of your teeth is with veneers in London.
Veneers to help address a full range of cosmetic dental issues. They are thin porcelain shells that are attached to the front surface of your teeth. They can be designed to match the colour of your natural teeth, or they can be a few shades whiter, depending on the impression you are looking to make.
They are able to disguise all imperfections that are affecting the enamel of your teeth; this includes stubborn stains or internal stains that cannot be removed by teeth whitening and the chips and cracks on your teeth that affect the appearance and health of your teeth. If you have a chip or a crack on your tooth, the tooth will become weaker over time as the chip or crack becomes bigger. Veneers can provide support for the tooth and strengthen it at the same time.
Veneers can also be used to change and improve the size and shape of your tooth. If you have misshapen teeth, you can have a set of veneers that will create a uniform and symmetrical smile. In some cases, they can also be used to improve minor misalignment issues or small gaps between the teeth where the patient does not necessarily need orthodontic treatment. This means that veneers are multi-functional. They will improve the appearance of your teeth and provide strength and support to the tooth underneath. They will also prevent further damage to the tooth underneath. With regular visits to your dentist to make sure that the veneers are in good condition, you can make your veneers last for 10 to 20 years.
