Having cosmetic dentistry performed can often be a great way to help save your smile, but sadly some patients miss out because they’re unaware that they would be better off with a veneer. So with that in mind here’s a few examples of when you should look into having an appointment for veneers in Belfast.
What are veneers?
Before we get too far into the signs that you need this treatment, here’s a little background information for those that are unfamiliar with this type of procedure. It essentially involves the placing of a small prosthetic covering, which is made from porcelain or ceramics, over a cracked or damaged part of your teeth. The cap is also moulded and shaded to match its surroundings to ensure that you have a natural looking smile at the end of the treatment.
The fitting process is fairly simple and fast which is what makes veneers in Belfast a fairly common treatment as patients are usually in and out again in under an hour.
Cracked or damaged teeth
One of the most common causes for patients to seek out this treatment is if there’s any cracks or noticeable damage in their teeth. This can be caused by a number of reasons, but mostly it tends to be through a sporting injury or an accidental trip or fall.
At Sandown Dental and Implant Clinic our team will repair your cracked or damaged teeth with a natural looking replacement that will support your smile throughout your life.
Staining, discolouration or yellowing of the teeth
Another common cause for this treatment is if there is a lot of staining present that can’t be removed through normal methods such as a whitening toothpaste or bleaching appointments in our practice. A veneer can help our patients achieve that whiter than white uniform smile.
These porcelain prosthetics are great at filling in any gaps you may have. Whether large or small, we’re able to use a mould to create a replacement that will exactly fit its new home with minimum fuss.
Worn down or flattened teeth
Either through your diet or brought on by bruxism, grinding of the teeth, your teeth may start to look flattened or worn down. Not only does this cause your smile to suffer it can also potentially lead to further health problems like degradation of the jaw muscles caused by an uneven amount of force being applied incorrectly across your teeth.
Having a veneer can help provide stability to your bite as well as aesthetically improving your smile.
Misaligned or crooked teeth
It’s not just braces that can help with a misaligned molar or crooked canine as a veneer implanted by your dentist can help create a more uniform and straight look to your teeth.
These are just a few situations in which we would recommend that you undergo this procedure. If you would like to know more about this particular treatment or how it could benefit you, then get in touch with our team at the practice.
