What are veneers, and why do patients choose to have veneers?
Veneers in Birmingham are essentially a form of cosmetic dentistry that aims to improve the aesthetic appearance of an individual's smile. Veneers come in two forms, porcelain and composite, both of which we offer at our clinic here in Birmingham. Porcelain veneers are also commonly referred to as ‘dental porcelain laminates’ and are designed to cover the surface of the teeth, in order to improve the appearance of a patient's smile.
Dental veneers may be suitable for individuals who have chipped, or discoloured teeth, which can be a common result of tooth wear and tear over time. Individuals who suffer from both intrinsic or extrinsic staining may wish to undergo this particular form of cosmetic dentistry. Intrinsic and extrinsic staining can be caused by the consumption of highly pigmented food and drink, such as red wine, curry, and coffee, as well as from partaking in certain lifestyle habits, such as smoking.
Despite common misconception, dental veneers can be adhered to several teeth if necessary, which can be ideal for many patients.
Individuals may choose to undergo their cosmetic treatment with us, for many reasons. At our dental clinic, we offer a wide variety of treatments, all of which are undertaken by trained dental healthcare professionals. We offer our patients modern dental treatments, in a relaxed, clean, and comforting dental environment.
How do veneers in Birmingham work?
Initially, a small layer of the surface of the teeth is removed using a dental drill, a wafer thin synthetic tooth shaped covering is personalised for each individual patient, meaning the shade and the shape will fit perfectly with your surrounding natural teeth. Dental veneers are adhered to the teeth using a special dental glue, and are designed to fit perfectly within the mouth. Despite the common use of veneers being for cosmetic purposes, they can also be used to close any gaps not possible through the use of other forms of orthodontics.
What if I am not satisfied with my veneers in Birmingham?
If our patients are not happy with their veneers (whether this be due to their shape, or colour) then we can replace the veneers for them. We understand that undergoing any form of dental work can be a huge financial and emotional investment, which is why we try and get it right first time. If for any reason our patients are not satisfied with their treatment, we are very happy to replace all of their veneers for them, and ensure the perfect shade and shape is achieved.
How can I be sure that veneers are right for me?
Undergoing any form of dental treatment can be nerve-racking, which is why we aim to ensure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible. We advise all of our patients to undergo a free initial consultation, in order to decide which dental treatment is best for them (whether this be emotionally, or financially). On our website, we have patient testimonials, as well as before and after photos, in order to show our potential patients the effectiveness of our cosmetic treatments.
