More and more people are hearing about veneers in Liverpool these days because it is becoming more available to us all, rather than it being solely for the rich and famous.
Many celebrities sport these porcelain shells and it is fast becoming the norm to have picture-perfect straight, white and even teeth. We are obsessed with this image as it is seen as more attractive, exuding health and status.
If you want to have perfect teeth but don’t think you could ever achieve this look, think again! Almost everyone can disguise imperfections in their smile with veneers in Liverpool. Our dentists can talk you through the procedure and answer any questions you may have regarding how it works, how long it will take and how long it lasts. Although veneers in Liverpool are not a budget option, if you look after them, they can last for upwards of 10 years and potentially, there is no expiry date on veneers, meaning you can benefit from a healthy-looking smile for life.
Let’s go through some of the popular questions that are asked so that you can obtain some general information regarding how this fantastic procedure works.
How long will it take?
This treatment is extremely quick as opposed to other solutions that can perfect your smile. In as little as 2 appointments, you can have that perfect looking smile you have always wanted. The initial consultation involves preparing your teeth for the application of the shells and finding the right shell to look right in your mouth as you smile.
We then have these veneers made and apply them during the second consultation. If you are working towards a full set, otherwise known as a smile makeover, there is the potential for application to take a little longer.
Does it hurt?
We do apply a local anaesthetic so that you will not feel anything and if you are a little nervous, then dental sedation is available so that you are also relaxed. As we remove a very thin layer of enamel in order to prepare the surface of your teeth for the shells, you can experience some sensitivity to your teeth.
This should go away after a week or so on its own, but it is important to be aware of this potential sensitivity so as to not be alarmed by it.
Other than that, porcelain veneers are a comfortable and convenient method of cosmetic dentistry that addresses many issues that people present with regarding the appearance of their smile
Who can have them?
This treatment is designed for people who have a smile that they are not entirely happy with. They work to cover and protect teeth that are chipped, broken or cracked. They also disguise discoloured teeth and work well for those people who have stains or yellowing from previous dental treatments or by medication that cannot otherwise be removed.
People with slightly crooked or gapped teeth can quickly and conveniently rectify this issue with this treatment as well.
