Veneers in Liverpool are fast becoming one of the most sought after dental treatments, thanks to the outstanding results that have been seen from the numerous celebrities that sport these cosmetic fixtures.

Many regular patients have chosen to invest in this procedure now and with good reason. Not only do they last for a very long time and with research and investments into the materials used it is likely they will last longer still in coming months and years; but they can cater to a range of different complaints that you may present with.

So if you have short teeth, crooked teeth, broken, chipped or cracked teeth or if they are discoloured and generally unsightly, then you too can use veneers in Liverpool, to obtain that picture perfect smile that you have always wanted to have and keep it for a decade or even longer.

There are, as with any dental procedure, advantages and disadvantages that need to be considered before a decision is made as to whether veneers in Liverpool are right for you.

By going through them briefly, we believe you will be more prepared with the questions and concerns that you might have, so you can address your dentist with the right focus when you come in for a consultation.

It is important to be prepared as best you can, so that you are not lying awake annoyed with  yourself when you forget to make a certain query about a treatment that you are considering. Although our dentists cover everything you need to know, it is sometimes important to ask about a point of concern regarding your personal situation, so that you can get the best possible advice in order to make an informed decision.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of veneers?

As we have said before, the advantages are plentiful. Many of your minor and even major dental concerns can be effectively disguised using this treatment, without the need for lengthy or complicated restorative treatments.

Because the whole process will only take a couple of appointments, you can have the smile of your dreams potentially within a few days, after an initial consultation with one of our team members at the Liverpool Smile Studio.

You may even be protecting a certain tooth from further damage by using this treatment, so you can be assured that for as long as the shells are intact, your tooth or teeth can not deteriorate anymore.

With that being said, we can move on to some disadvantages. It is critical that you ensure the upkeep of your porcelain shells is maintained, so this makes it an investment and a commitment for life. If one chips or breaks, and they only do have a shelf life of around a decade, you will need to replace them.

Also, this procedure is not cheap. Cost is one of the biggest deciding factors for many patients and an entire smile makeover will entail a considerable, but worthwhile cost.

However, for many, this is a small price to pay for the enormous positive sense of health and emotional wellbeing you can experience by having this treatment to perfect your smile.

Are you looking for a way to spruce up your smile, but are too sensitive to undertake traditional whitening? Do you have some minor cracks in your teeth that you want to hide? Perhaps you have a wedding coming up and have tried everything to get rid of those dark spots on your teeth to no avail.

While these two cosmetic issues seem unrelated, there is a common solution to both of them, which involves no discomfort, no increased sensitivity to your teeth and, most importantly, is fast to apply.

When you come to our team at the Liverpool Smile Studio, we may recommend that a thin, porcelain covering is placed over your teeth to conceal any cracks or stubborn discolouration. Known as dental veneers in Liverpool, this simple and speedy method is perfect for correcting everything from staining to asymmetry, leaving you with a Hollywood worthy smile in minimal time. Perfect!

Are there any other advantages to having dental veneers in Liverpool? Here are our top 5!

Sensitivity

Earlier in this article, we discussed the issues surrounding dental whitening procedures due to sensitive teeth.

While having dental veneers in Liverpool fitted can resolve this issue instantly (as they can whiten your smile up to 16 shades), once placed, you will notice a reduction in the sensitivity of your teeth. In other words, the holes in your enamel that were responsible for that pain every time you sipped an iced drink are now closed, creating a pain-free tooth! Brilliant!

Strength

If you have had a root canal performed or need a way to strengthen a damaged tooth, these simple porcelain coverings are the answer.

As porcelain does not warp when exposed to temperatures, it is the perfect material to strengthen a weak tooth. And best of all, due to its natural appearance, you can achieve this without creating a cosmetic issue with your smile.

Easy maintenance

Many dental cosmetic procedures come with aftercare; for example, dental implants require careful brushing and maintenance while the gums heal.

However, once you have had these porcelain coverings attached to your teeth with dental cement, there is no specialist aftercare to follow. Just brush, rinse and floss as you normally would and you are good to go! They can even be whitened just like your regular teeth, so there are no concerns about having a smile made of mismatched teeth.

Chips and cracks

As mentioned earlier, porcelain coverings can conceal cracks at the centre or sides of the teeth, which also prevent bacteria from getting access to the pulp.

However, our team at the Liverpool Smile Studio can also shape them to conceal any chips at the side or top of your teeth too, creating a more symmetrical smile and appearance.

Longevity

One of the main advantages of these fittings is their longevity.

Provided that you maintain good oral hygiene, attend check-ups with our team and do not smoke or consume alcohol excessively, your new coverings should last up to 20 years! Great stuff!

Veneers in Liverpool are available to all of those who require them. A veneer can be described as a thin piece of porcelain, which can be used to recreate the look of natural teeth. They also can supply a source of strength and resilience to a person’s oral ability; this strength is not unlike the natural surface of the enamel.

liverpool-dental-veneers

Veneers are custom made to the shape of your teeth, so they look different on each client. The veneers themselves are secured to the tooth’s original enamel surface during a series of procedures. They often require minimal tooth reduction, making this a relatively easy dental option. Clients often choose veneers to improve the appearance of uneven teeth. Teeth that are cracked, worn from time and not uniformly shaped can be improved with veneers.

Veneers can be one of the many ways to help you achieve the beautiful gleaming smile that you have always wished for. The treatment episode is done underneath local anaesthetic, allowing it to be virtually painless. Provided that veneers are properly cared for, in a way as instructed by your dentist, veneers can last more than 10 years. Provided you keep up with cleaning and brushing your teeth at the same time as keeping up with regular dental appointments, your veneers can last a long time.

How are veneers put into my mouth?

Veneers in Liverpool are built onto the teeth in a highly specific way, to allow the best possible results for your new smile. Your dentist will follow the correct and necessary steps to fit your veneers in the correct manner. Your dentist will ensure to walk you through each and every step and make sure that you understand the process, placing you at ease during all of your appointments. The first step involves a layer of your enamel being scraped from the surface of your teeth. This allows the veneers to be placed into the mouth and helps bond the porcelain to the teeth. The second step involves glue being added to the teeth, this is followed by the veneers being placed directly onto the teeth. Several appointments may be required in order to promote the best possible results, but it will ensure that you have something to smile about in the end.

Why should I get veneers? How could they benefit me?

Veneers in Liverpool completed by Liverpool Smile Studio are highly regarded by the people who have had them done. Many clients’ testimonies can vouch that they are extremely with the outcome of their dental treatment and very happy with their new smile. Many people are not happy with the way their mouth looks and will often go to great lengths not to show it to others. Self-esteem can often be linked to a poor body image and no one deserves to feel like that; a bright smile could be a way to combat negative feelings about yourself. If you are unhappy with your smile and often find yourself laughing behind your hand to avoid embarrassment, then maybe veneers could be right for you. Everyone deserves to smile, including you, and everyone has something to smile about.

Anyone with the slightest tooth imperfection can benefit from veneers in Liverpool.  From chipped, to cracked and dull teeth, veneers are aesthetic treatments that correct a wide range of minor dental issues.

What are veneers in Liverpool?

Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to your teeth.  The material, usually comprising porcelain or composite resin, is durable and made to look like the rest of your natural teeth.

How many teeth can you treat at a time?

You can treat one or multiple teeth, the choice is up to you entirely, depending on your needs and budget.

What dental problems can you treat with veneers?

As we have mentioned, you can treat a wide range of issues that affect your smile.

From something as slight as a small chip, through to a more seriously fractured tooth.

Will the effects look natural?

Many people request that the veneers be ultra-white, which is not a good idea because the natural shade of your teeth is off-white to grey.

A skilled cosmetic dentist chooses the right tint for your veneers in Liverpool so that it blends with your surrounding teeth.

The subtle results will improve your confidence.

How long does the procedure take?

Depending on whether the veneers are prefabricated or custom made, obtaining veneers takes one or two appointments.

The steps to obtaining custom-fabricated veneers are as follows:

  • Dental impressions are taken of the tooth and sent to the laboratory. We will place a temporary veneer over the chip, crack, or fracture in the meantime.
  • Once we receive the new veneer, we will prepare it by etching it, then place the piece over your tooth to ensure that the contour is precisely right.
  • We then cement the veneer in place, which is then light cured for approximately sixty seconds.  The curing ensures your new tooth piece is fastened securely in place.
  • Any excess debris will be removed from your mouth.

Does the procedure require anaesthesia ?

At the forefront of people’s minds is whether the cosmetic procedure hurts.  Bonding veneers to your tooth involves minimal pain.  However, you may experience some discomfort if you have sensitive teeth.

Ask your dental practitioner about administering anaesthesia if you do have a low pain threshold or have dental anxiety.

Are veneers an alternative to braces?

You can use veneers to correct minor misalignment problems, such as bridging spaces between gapped teeth.  By opting for veneers, you will not have to endure wearing braces for a lengthy period.

What should I do if I don’t like my veneers in Liverpool?

You have to be sure about veneers because once glued into place; they cannot be removed.

How long will a veneer last?

Veneers can last between ten to twenty years, depending on how well you take care of your teeth.  While veneers can’t last forever, having good oral hygiene will help them to last longer.

When you are not completely comfortable with your smile, it can seriously impact your self confidence and how you engage in social and business interactions. You might not even be aware that you are smiling less and avoiding eye contact, which can lead to some devastating conclusions made about your personality and intelligence.

We believe that it is critically important to have a healthy mouth that can support you throughout your entire life. You should not just be comfortable with your smile, you should absolutely love to share it with the world.

Confidence is such a delicate thing.

Veneers in Liverpool could be your first step towards a healthier and happier version of you.

A dedicated, understanding and modern dentist has the ability, and desire, to improve upon the natural beauty of your smile. We aim to bring your true beauty within your smile out for all to see. We absolutely love doing our job.

We welcome you to enjoy the journey along with us, as we set to make subtle and sometimes extravagant changes to your face and smile with veneers in Liverpool. This smile makeover treatment is a fast and incredibly effective way in which to achieve the smile you have always dreamed of having.

What is this treatment?

Dental veneers in Liverpool are fast becoming a favourite option as they meet a combination of different needs that you may have with your teeth. From stained teeth, to cracked, chipped, or broken teeth.  We are able to neatly cover these for a long time whilst also protecting them.

Even slightly misaligned teeth that are crossing over, or with gaps in between, can be masked with this treatment.

A conservative restorative treatment, veneers cover the outer edge of each individual tooth with a thin shell that is shaded and shaped to the appearance that best suits your smile. We aim to achieve a natural look whilst giving you a glowing white and confident smile.

By covering your teeth, you are able to further protect them from damage. Know that this is not a permanent fixture and you should expect to have them replaced after a decade or so if cared for correctly. Even though these shells are strong, they are vulnerable to damage just like your regular teeth and can chip, break, or wear down.

Application of the shells is a speedy process where they are glued with a special dental cement. In order to do this, a thin layer of enamel needs to be removed from the tooth surface and can cause sensitivity. This should go away after a few days.

We encourage you to come and meet with us to discuss the advantages and potential risks of this treatment. This journey is one that many patients only wish they had taken sooner once they see the end results. We are here for you whenever you are ready to transform yourself into a more confident, healthier, and happier you.

When it comes to cosmetic dental procedures such as veneers in Liverpool there are technical factors that require adequate preparation before the procedure. Equally essential is the expertise of the dental practitioner in application. These two factors bear significant weight on the outcome of treatment, which is why patients interested in veneers in Liverpool should  choose with careful consideration the practitioner that will perform the treatment.

liverpool-veneers

The wrong choice in dental practitioner can thwart the desired result of veneers in Liverpool. As not every dental practitioner has the required experience or skills to produce aesthetically pleasing results, finding out about their cosmetic dentistry portfolio is a good idea.

When veneer treatments may be unsuccessful

  1. Neglecting to address existing dental issues before the veneer procedure

Before a veneer treatment can be carried out, a dental practitioner needs to ascertain the good oral health of the patient. Any pre-existing dental issue such as an infection or tooth decay needs to be treated first, as it may compromise the success of the procedure. Treating these conditions after applying veneers may present further complications.

  • Receiving poor quality veneer products

Overall, veneers offer a relatively long-term lifespan. What will influence this longevity are the use of poor quality materials and the bad oral habits of patients.  One bad habit in particular is bruxism or grinding one’s teeth. A dentist can suggest measures that will help a patient avoid grinding their teeth. At Liverpool Smile Studio we offer our patients porcelain veneers that are renowned for their aesthetic quality as well as functional quality.

  • Patients may experience discomfort during the procedure

It is not usual for patients to feel discomfort during a veneer procedure, but it can happen especially if the practitioner is inexperienced or rushed through the procedure. We use a local anaesthetic for our veneer procedures and if necessary for really anxious patients, dental sedation can be arranged.  There may be an initial tooth sensitivity after the procedure, but a dentist can advise on how to minimise or manage this.

  • Outcome may differ from expectations

Very often patients have an exact idea of what they would like their smile to look like. This is almost always influenced by a particular famous personality’s smile. What patients don’t factor in is that the shape of their facial structure may differ from that of the famous person, which is why the final result may not look the same.

  • Procedure preparation may result in excessive tooth mass loss

Some patients will require their teeth to be prepared before the veneers can be applied. Preparations can involve the dentist shaving a bit off the tooth’s layer. This process is irreversible and an inexperienced practitioner can shave off more of the tooth’s surface than is necessary.

  • Miscommunication with the dental practitioner

The wrong choice in dentist can open up problems in miscommunication. The right dentist will listen to a patient’s needs and desired outcomes.

Chat to us more during your consultation to see if veneers are the best option for you and what to expect.

2 – We use a local anaesthetic during the procedure

Many people want to know if the procedure will be painful; the answer is no it will not. If you do experience any pain as we work, please let us know right away. Our local anaesthetic works to keep you comfortable as we remove thin layers of enamel from your teeth. This process is important because the adhesive we apply afterwards allows the porcelain veneers to bond closely with your teeth. The strong and natural-looking veneers will last a long time if you care for them.

3 – Caring for your veneers

If you want to make sure that your veneers last for as long as ten years, you have to care for them. How do you do this? When you come to see us at Liverpool Smile Studio, we’ll run you through what’s needed from you and what’s needed from us.

Anyone seeking veneers in Liverpool, need look no further than our highly trained, professional and approachable staff here at Liverpool Smile Studio.

Bridging the gaps

We at Liverpool Smile Studio, understand the pressures and social anxiety that can arise from having large or unsightly gaps in your teeth, as well as the underlying health issues which can arise as a result of not seeking treatment. As such, we urge any of our patients who are in need of dental veneers in Liverpool, to seek treatment through our qualified professional, veneer specialists to get their teeth restored to their former glory. Dental veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry which is utilised to improve the overall appearance of chipped, broken or discoloured teeth. They act as a thin cover to the fronts of a patient’s teeth, and completely transform their smiles, as well as affording the teeth some protection. At Liverpool Smile Studio, we offer porcelain veneers in Liverpool. These are thin shells of porcelain, which are bonded to the front of the patient’s teeth, giving their smile a far healthier, whiter and more cohesive look. Veneers also help to bridge any gaps within a patient’s smile, and can greatly boost the self-esteem and confidence of those who seek them.

Shining through

The process of undertaking veneer treatments through us here at Liverpool Smile Studio  initially consists of a brief consultation visit. This is a no-obligation assessment of the patient’s intended outcome and helps them familiarise themselves with the process. Only once the patient feels comfortable and confident with the procedure, do we actually begin treatment. The initial stage of treatment involves the removal of a thin layer of enamel on the front of a patient’s teeth. This is a minimally invasive procedure, which is performed to allow the porcelain veneers to be bonded in place correctly. Thereafter, the thin, porcelain veneer caps are placed over the patient’s teeth, and bonded to them using a thin layer of strong dental adhesive. This process often requires multiple visits to our specialists here at Liverpool Smile Studio, to ensure that the best possible result is achieved. Those who undertake such a treatment however, can find their lives transformed in a multitude of different ways, and their ability and confidence to smile freely restored once again. Veneers also last for a number of years, so patients can be confident that they can keep smiling without fear or embarrassment for many years to come.

Want to achieve your dream smile in a day? Well now you can! Today, we are forever bombarded with media photographs of perfectly straight, gap free, white teeth. When you have less than perfect teeth, these images can make you feel under confident and lower your self-esteem, which is not fun to experience.

Veneers in LiverpoolIf you want to give your smile a new lease of life, porcelain veneers in Liverpool can offer you a quick and effective boost to your smile.

What are porcelain veneers?

The veneers in Liverpool that we use are similar to a fake nail being placed over a nail bed; we customise the porcelain covering, to fit over your tooth or teeth, and bond it to hold it in place.

Veneers in Liverpool can be fitted in a day; perfect if you have been invited to a party at the last minute or need your teeth to look their whitest.

But what are the other benefits of having this treatment option?

Easy maintenance

If you have exceptionally good dental hygiene, then veneers should be very straightforward to care for.

Regular dental check-ups and trips to the hygienist are important to keeping the coverings in top shape but at home, all you need to do is to brush twice a day, floss and use mouthwash, to keep them in the best possible condition; they really are that straightforward.

Long lasting

As dental technologies continue to progress, the time span of how long cosmetic procedures last our patients is increasing.

With proper care and regular dental check-ups, a well-maintained set of veneers can last up to 10 years. If during this time, you are worried that one of them is coming loose, simply drop into our dental surgery so we can examine it.

 Stain resistant

One of the biggest issues dental patients face today is that of staining. With modern foods being quite high in acids, many patients struggle to keep their teeth free of stains and looking their whitest without professional help.

When you have veneers fitted, they will not only whiten your smile, but they will also act as a barrier against stains. They are stain resistant and therefore, you can eat and drink whatever foods you wish, without having to worry about stains forming on your teeth.

Fast results

If you are using veneers to correct a slight misalignment in your mouth, then an obvious benefit is that it will be invisible once your veneer is fitted, usually within 2 to 3 dental visits. Even compared to the fastest cosmetic brace, that is incredibly quick!

Similarly, if you are using veneers to cover staining or hide imperfections on your teeth, whitening sessions can take several weeks, but as soon as veneers are fitted, your teeth are instantly whiter.

Then you should consider getting veneers in Liverpool, to make your teeth and smile more naturally beautiful. Each tooth will be individually worked on and you’ll leave our Liverpool Smile Studio with your confidence boosted and your smile glowing.

Veneers in LiverpoolHow are veneers fitted onto my teeth?

The veneer-process is fairly simple and our dentists are trained to make sure you understand the process and you’re comfortable throughout. Our dentists remove a thin layer of the enamel from the tooth. This process means the tooth has more grip for the veneer to attach to. The dentist will then line up the porcelain veneer to each tooth and wait for the two to bond. This process could take about two or three visits to the dentist to make sure all is in order.

Once your veneers are fitted, it’s now up to you to keep them in tip-top shape! Regular brushing, flossing, and dentist visits ensure that your veneers last up to 10 years and even longer. Good dental health is always important for any dental treatment or procedure.

Each visit that you make to Liverpool Smile Studio means you’re that much closer to your best smile. We have many happy patients, and testimonials on our website for you to view. Each person tells a different story about their time with us and how their dental work made a difference in their lives. Adding veneers to your life will make all of the difference.

Will the veneer process be painful?

You will be under local anaesthetic for the procedure. This means that you should not be able to feel any of the process. If you’re still anxious about getting veneers in Liverpool, we offer further support to assist you throughout the procedure.

We suggest that you come into our studio and chat with us about your concerns and expectations. Our friendly and experienced team of dentists are happy to run you through the procedure.
