Recraft your smile, and uncover your true potential with veneers in Birmingham
Join the cosmetic revolution
In recent years, there has been an unprecedented rise in the number of new patients seeking out cosmetic dentistry solutions to improve the overall aesthetics of their smiles and boost their self-esteem. Here at St Pauls Square Dental Practice, we understand that we live in an increasingly image conscious world, where looks are a principle key to one's social confidence and overall well-being. Over the past few years, we’ve seen a massive spike in the number of patients across all ages seeking out cosmetic dentistry solutions such as veneers in Birmingham. Speculation behind the reason for this increase in dental engagement is that it may be due to the increase in social media documentation, and photography of our everyday lives. It is thought that the more we constantly display our lives through our various social platforms, it causes an increasing number of us to pay closer attention to the aesthetics of our smiles, and because of this has spurred many new patients to take the appropriate steps to improve them.
Veneers are a permanent form of cosmetic dentistry which gives patients the ability to completely recraft their smiles, and address a number of cosmetic issues, such as gaps within their teeth, or teeth which are stained or discoloured. The basis of veneer treatment involves bonding a thin layer of tooth-coloured porcelain to the front of the patient's teeth, to give their smile a more cohesive and whiter appearance. One massive positive of veneer treatment - besides it’s obvious cosmetic advantage - is its role in replacing lost or damaged enamel of a patient's teeth. Enamel, which is the outermost layer of tooth, is actually the strongest part of the human body - even stronger than bone. That said, nothing is indestructible and over time, the enamel on your teeth can erode due to many factors such as poor oral hygiene or the consumption of acidic foods or drinks. As enamel does not regrow, if it is lost, patients often seek veneer treatment to restore the integrity of their teeth for years to come.
Shine like stars
Veneers are often in the public limelight through the shining white smiles of celebrities, and a large proportion of those who seek them do so to achieve a whiter smile which is more permanent than cosmetic teeth whitening. Over time, the natural enamel on your teeth can become dulled or yellowed - which can often result in a negative impact on your self-esteem. Additionally, certain lifestyle choices can cause teeth to become stained or discoloured. Smoking is one of the worst offenders in causing superficial stains to a patient's teeth, as is drinking black coffee or tea, and red wine. Whilst many patients seek out the aid of cosmetic teeth whitening to combat stains and discolouration to their teeth, the results of these forms of cosmetic treatment are rarely permanent, and the stains often return after a few months. By opting for veneers however, patients can achieve a whiter, brighter smile on a permanent basis, which affords them the ability to shine to their fullest potential, massively boosting their self-esteem and confidence.
