Your smile is one of the major things people pick up on when they first see you. It tells how confident you are and how you carry yourself, but somethings can get in the way of that. In the event that you have tried every remedy you can think of to get rid of crooked or yellow stains on your teeth, it is time to contact a Southampton cosmetic dentist specializing in veneers treatment. At Yardley Dental Arts, we understand discoloration in your teeth can bring dissatisfaction and affect your confidence. Because of this, our patients in Southampton are starting to notice the benefits of veneers.
A veneer is a thin covering, custom-made shell used to fit over any part of the teeth that is crooked or slightly off-shape, or has a natural yellow or dark stain. Veneers mask the look of the crooked defects, discoloration, and irregular length in your teeth. Porcelain is used for veneers because it is translucent and mimics the reflective properties of your own teeth, creating a natural look. Porcelain is perfect for this type of procedure because it resists most stains and will last for many years.
The procedure of installing veneers is often fast, easy, and convenient, allowing you to get the results you want. Not everyone has the time or budget to spend on multiple dental procedures in order to achieve pearly white teeth with a bright smile. When finance plays a factor, veneers might be a great budget-friendly option. Before scheduling an appointment, be sure to find out if a cosmetic dentist serving Southampton specializes in veneer, as well as, offers financing options for your veneer appointment. call Yardley Dental Arts today to schedule a consultation with Dr.Patel, our cosmetic dentist.
The topic of whether or not to get veneer or braces will come down to the degree of misalignment in your teeth. As much as teenagers are the major demographic for wearing braces, we are starting to see more and more adults joining the same trend. Braces are less on the cosmetic side of things, while veneers are. Braces improve your smile over a period of time by structurally aligning your teeth, while veneers offer a quick lasting fix.
Deciding if you should get veneers or braces also relies on your level of comfortability when it comes to your smile. There are some reasons related to how your teeth is structured that may cause you to pick braces:
These structural issues listed above all cause a wear down of the natural appearance of your teeth. In fact, they can contribute to you not being able to floss or brush properly and can lead to periodontal (gum) diseases.
Veneers not only add a nice touch to your smile, but they are custom-fitted to match your existing teeth and make it look like your existing teeth structure. Talking to a cosmetic dentist serving Southampton will help you understand how many appointments it will take for your veneer application to complete and how long they will last for. Reading a blog post or hearing about a person’s personal experience can only help give you an estimate of what to expect, but Dr. Patel at Yardley Dental Arts brings a holistic approach to your entire appointment so you are fully informed.
The ultimate goal is to create a winning smile, and there can be a number of reasons it is required:
The first step is to make an appointment with a Southampton cosmetic dentist who has experience with veneers like Dr. Purvi Patel. Then start with an impression that has to be made of your teeth. This is done to ensure the veneers will blend perfectly with the surrounding teeth, both in color, shape, and size. They will be created in a lab, and it can take a week or more before they are ready. Until then, a small portion of the enamel has to be removed so that you can wear a temporary veneer, applied using temporary glue. While this is in place you will have to be very careful brushing your teeth. The temporary veneer will be removed when the new veneer is ready. It will be attached using a water based glue first, in order to make sure it looks perfect. After any adjustments, it is permanently bonded to the tooth. Veneers can be a pain-free way to create a winning smile. The process is simple and nobody will know you’ve had it done.
