Get a Radiant Smile with Affordable Dental Veneers in Twickenham
Veneers are a great way of enhancing your smile as they can disguise a number of different imperfections including stains, chips, gaps, and mis-aligned teeth. In some cases we the best treatment option is to combine veneers with other treatments. Often we might use veneers for the upper teeth and tooth whitening for the lower teeth. Or, if the teeth are misaligned, we may use an inman aligner adult orthodontic technique to align your teeth, then make some veneers to correct the shape and colour.
In some instances where only very small changes are required it may be the best option for us to use Tooth Bonding, this is where we apply a tooth coloured 'putty' to your tooth, we then contour it to replace missing corners, rebuild broken tips or build up fractured teeth. This technique is often more cost effective than veneers and is a minimally invasive option as it results in retaining as much natural tooth as possible. When you come in for your assessment we can discuss with you the advantages of bonding and decide whether dental veneers or bonding are right for you
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are very thin layers of porcelain which are bonded to the front of your teeth. The porcelain used is very strong, it is a mixture of feldspar and quartz, these 2 minerals are what make up the bulk of granite, so you can see, dental porcelain is tremendously strong - this porcelain is then refined to remove all impurities until it is highly translucent and looks exactly like natural teeth. It is then built up by a skilled technician to look exactly as you want your new teeth to look.
This patient had veneers to correct 3 concerns:
- The teeth were not in line
- The teeth were dark
- The teeth were too triangular and not a nice shape
Dental veneers allowed us to reshape this patients teeth and remove the triangular look to them. This patient also suffered from a black space in the middle towards the gum, it was not possible to close this completely, but we were able to make a large improvement.
This patient could have been treated only with tooth whitening, however this would not have addressed the concerns the patient had over shape and mis-alignment, so overall we felt that veneers were the best option in this case.
We will always have this detailed discussion with you to ensure you have the absolute best treatment option.
