You may even feel limited in your relationship and career prospects. You don’t need to feel less than your best. You can get the smile you’ve always wanted with porcelain veneers in Manchester. You will enjoy drastic results after just 2 appointments.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment because they can correct several issues using just one procedure. A thin shell is bonded over the front surface of a tooth to instantly improve its color, size, shape, and proportion.
When compared to veneers made of other materials, porcelain has become the preferred choice because it closely mimics your enamel. This ensures you enjoy natural-looking results, but it also makes the treatment less invasive. Porcelain allows veneers to be crafted thinner, so less of your enamel is removed during the bonding process.
What Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Affixing a veneer to the front surface of a tooth instantly hides a variety of imperfections, including:
- Dark tooth discoloration.
- Chipped, cracked, or abnormally shaped teeth.
- Shorter than average teeth.
- Close gaps between teeth.
- Cover minor alignment issues.
What Can I Expect?
After an initial consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Manchester, you’re scheduled for the first phase of your treatment. Your teeth are cleaned, and their surfaces are lightly etched to prepare them for bonding. Since less of your enamel needs to be removed, the procedure is less invasive. In fact, you may not even need a local anesthetic.
We take an impression of your mouth, which is needed to ensure your veneers meet your exact needs. They are carefully crafted to meet your color, size, and shape needs. This can take a couple of weeks, so we may need to attach temporary ones in the meantime. After your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll return to our office to have them bonded to your teeth.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Although veneers are thin, they are durable. In fact, they can last for a decade or longer with the right care. You can protect your investment by following a few simple tips:
- Use nonabrasive dental products when cleaning your teeth.
- Brush your teeth twice a day for at least 2-minutes each session.
- Floss your teeth every night before going to bed.
- Wear an athletic mouthguard if you play sports.
- Don’t use your teeth as tools.
- Don’t chew on inedible objects.
- Visit your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
Even with the best care, a veneer can be damaged or fall off over time. We can easily replace it to restore a flawless smile.
