Other Choices For the Perfect Smile
Some people aren’t too comfortable with their teeth and have been wanting to do something about it for a while now.
Being an adult can make it harder to feel comfortable with the procedure as you won’t want that teenage look again.
A choice to give you the perfect smile without the teen look is a porcelain veneer.

A Porcelain Veneer:
A porcelain veneer is used to make teeth look natural and healthy, and to ultimately re-shape the positioning of the teeth.
All without the dreaded brace look. It is a thin layer of porcelain, fitting over the structure of your teeth.
You can choose a precise shade of porcelain to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth.
The bond between the porcelain particles is strong, making the veneer durable, and an easy choice for your teeth.
Veneers can also be used to close small gaps in your teeth, or even bring an out of place tooth together with the rest of your teeth – if orthodontic braces are not suitable.
Procedures before the fitting of your veneer
Before you actually receive the veneer, there may need to be some changes made to your teeth to make it them fit perfectly together.
Some enamel on the surface of your teeth may need to be removed, just to ensure the veneer can be bonded with your teeth.
It is only a small amount that is removed – If you do have a low pain threshold, a general anaesthetic inject can be used.
Once this has been done, your dentist will take an impression on the mould of your teeth, essentially an exact copy of your mouth.
Some other information may be taken to make sure the veneer made is perfect. For example, the exact colour of your teeth. This is to make sure the veneer matches the surrounding teeth so it is not visible.
