Dental Veneers in Ilkley
Is the Shape Of Your Teeth Making you unhappy with your smile?
Dental veneers could be the ideal solution for you!
Dental veneers at Taylored Dental Care in Ilkley are a popular choice if you are looking for a new smile you can be confident with.
Veneers are no longer something that is only available for the rich and famous. Advances in technology mean veneers are more affordable than you think.
If your teeth have small gaps or are slightly crooked, veneers can work for you.
Porcelain dental veneers can be used in many ways to dramatically improve the colour, shape and position of teeth. If teeth are chipped, worn, discoloured or crooked, veneers can be designed and manufactured to transform the teeth to provide the ideal appearance for your smile.
Porcelain veneers offer a great way to transform your smile with just one treatment. Because they cover the whole surface of the tooth, they can hide many imperfections – or discolouration – while retaining a natural and healthy appearance.
Very little preparation of the tooth is needed, making them a cost-effective and simple cosmetic dentistry solution.
Veneers can also be used to close small gaps. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
Veneers are a wafer-thin overlay which improves the appearance of your teeth. A bit like cling film.
Dependent on your needs, porcelain and composite being the most popular.
Well there are a wide variety of reasons why you might opt for treatment with dental veneers:
1. Discoloured Teeth – Veneers can cover stained teeth that won’t respond to whitening treatments.
2. Damaged Teeth – Your teeth maybe damaged for a number of reasons, excessive grinding for example. Veneers can also correct the appearance of chipped or broken teeth. You can also use them for teeth where the enamel has been damaged or a replacement to stop any further damage to the tooth underneath.
3. Gaps – Spaces between your teeth can easily be closed using veneers, giving you a more uniform-looking smile, making you feel happier.
4. Crooked Teeth – There are only a few cases using Veneers for crooked teeth. If your teeth are not severely crooked you can use Veneers to give the appearance of a perfectly straight smile. Win – win.
First, both composite and porcelain veneers have their merits. Porcelain gives you the most natural look as it has a colour similar to natural teeth. Composite veneers can be placed in just one appointment and require less preparation on your tooth surface, thus saving you time.
Furthermore, as with any treatment here at Taylored Dental Care we will always look at what the best options are for your smile so you can decide what it is you want and to give you the very best result.
Porcelain veneers typically last between five and ten years, while composite veneers tend to have a shorter life span.
To make your veneers last longer you should treat them as your teeth need to be treated.
Also, ensure that you keep regular appointments to see us to keep your mouth as healthy as can be, try and stick to a good diet and avoid too many acidic foods and foods that can stain your teeth.
Taylored 7 Step Process…
1. Once you are ready to go ahead with treatment your teeth need to be prepared for your new veneers.
2. A tiny part of your front teeth will be removed; it will be the same amount as the thickness of your veneers so that they sit perfectly in your smile.
3. After that has been done an impression of your teeth will be taken.
4. You will have some temporary veneers placed on your teeth to protect the prepared surface of the teeth underneath.
5. And when your new veneers are ready you will come back into the practice to have them fitted. First they will just be placed over your teeth so that you can ensure that you are happy with their appearance.
6. Then once you are happy your teeth are thoroughly cleaned and the front surface will be roughened so that they provide a good surface for the bonding material between your tooth and the veneer to stick to.
7. Finally a curing light is used to activate the bonding cement so that it permanently bonds your tooth and veneer, once this has been done you will be left with a beautiful and natural looking new smile.
