At the Liverpool Smile Studio it is the principal aim of our bespoke dental practice to create beautiful and elegant smiles for each and every one of our patients.

veneers-liverpool

We specialise in a broad range of treatments, including veneers Liverpool, which can have a massively positive and uplifting impact on both how our patients’ smiles look, and how they feel when they use them.

What are veneers Liverpool?

Being unsatisfied with the way one or more aspects of your smile looks is perfectly normal and one of the most common reasons for patients turning to our practice for help.

One of the most effective ways of treating multiple aesthetic concerns that patients commonly have – such as stained, discoloured, crooked or uneven teeth, is through veneers Liverpool.

Most people commonly associate veneers with the teeth of celebrities, television personalities and movie stars, thanks to the procedure’s proven ability to completely transform a person’s dental aesthetics and create a more cohesive and together-looking smile.

However, veneers are not something that is purely reserved only for the rich and famous, as they can actually be installed for a far more affordable price than you might imagine.

At Liverpool Smile Studio we regularly instal both single veneers, which can make a single tooth look both cleaner and better aligned, and multiple veneers, which can transform a patient’s entire smile.

How do veneers work?

A veneer, in principle, is when a new layer is placed over the surface of something – giving it a cleaner and fresher looking aesthetic. In a dental sense this is exactly what a veneer does, as it is a thin porcelain shell which is bonded to the front and back of a patient’s tooth with a powerful dental adhesive.

Because veneers have to fit perfectly around the patient’s existing tooth or teeth in order to give their smile a cohesive togetherness, the process of creating a customised veneer is individual and unique to the patient who is getting them.

The first stages of getting a veneer from us here at the Liverpool Smile Studio involves diagnostic planning and getting the various X-rays and photographs taken from which your veneers will ultimately be made.

Veneers have the power to completely and radically alter how a person’s smile looks, and therefore it is essential that our veneer experts work alongside every patient to guide them towards a decision on what they want their new smile to look like.

Once a goal has been set for the aesthetics of your new smile, our technicians can begin crafting your unique set of porcelain veneers.

How are veneers attached?

When the time comes to bond your veneers to your teeth, the first step in the process involves cleaning your enamel and getting them ready for the bonding.

After buffering your teeth we will then roughen the surface of your enamel slightly by etching it – which will allow for a stronger bond. Once your teeth are prepared we will then use a strong dental adhesive alongside a high-intensity light to speed up the bonding process.

Once the dental adhesive has hardened you can then admire your new bite and make sure everything is to your liking, before going off to enjoy your brighter looking smile.

Teeth often get chipped or cracked throughout a person’s life and can even have small gaps between them that leave a smile looking uneven. Having an uneven smile can cause insecurities, make it difficult to laugh in public or even have a conversation with someone without worrying what they think of your teeth. At Liverpool Smile Studio we want our patients to love their smile and will do whatever we can to help them achieve the results that they desire. If you have chipped teeth or are unsatisfied with how your smile looks then we recommend that you book a consultation appointment to see one of our dental practitioners. They will be able to discuss all of the treatments that we offer and which ones will benefit you the most. People often think that if they have gaps between their teeth that they need straightening treatment, but this is not always suitable. At our practice we provide people with the opportunity to get veneers Liverpool, an alternative way to disguise both gaps and chips in your teeth.

Don’t let chips in your smile get you down

If you have chips in your teeth then getting veneers Liverpool could not only offer your teeth more protection, but give them a more even appearance overall. They are capable of closing small gaps as well as disguising any chips or cracks that your teeth have. Chips can be incredibly uncomfortable for your tongue and can become extremely irritating or end up leading to more complicated issues if they are left untreated. When you make the decision to undergo treatment you will have your teeth carefully prepared before having the thin shells fixed onto the surfaces of your teeth. It is important that once your treatment is complete you take proper care of your new teeth if you wish them to last you as long as possible. Your practitioner will explain how to do so and be able to answer any questions to the best of their ability if you have any.

Treatment that works with one tooth or all of them

Many people do not enjoy looking in the mirror when they are unhappy with their smile, but getting veneers Liverpool could change this. Depending on your circumstances you may be undergoing this treatment to conceal the appearance of a chip on a single tooth, or you may be getting an entire set. Either way, your veneers  will be made of porcelain and designed to look and feel exactly like natural teeth. If you are having a single tooth treated then your porcelain shell will be matched to the shade of your other teeth, so it blends in successfully. In some cases people may not even notice that you have undergone treatment unless you tell them. When you are having an entire set, each tooth will be individually shaped and sized to make your teeth appear more even overall, with no gaps between them or unsightly chips. In some circumstances having an entire set fitted will make your teeth appear whiter too. Having an even, stain-free smile can reduce the insecurities that people may feel when looking at their smile in the mirror, meaning they can enjoy a much more positive start to their day.

Despite good oral hygiene and orthodontic treatment at an early age, there are issues which may affect the look of your teeth and your smile from time to time. Due to the increase in demand, with the introduction of the internet and social media, cosmetic dentistry has advanced rapidly over the last few decades. Much research and design has been carried out and there are now many different options available to help improve the aesthetics of your smile.

veneers-liverpool

A good oral hygiene routine is essential in maintaining a beautiful smile, however, despite good brushing techniques, over the course of life your teeth may naturally become stained or yellow and this can affect your self-confidence and make you feel uncomfortable about your smile. There are some situations which are unavoidable, such as an accident or physical trauma to your mouth and unfortunately this may result in damage to the surface of your  tooth. You may have a chipped tooth or teeth or you may even have a broken tooth that is affecting the way you feel about your smile. If you are experiencing any of these issues then speak to us at Liverpool Smile Studio today. We have many different treatment options available which can help deal with your dental needs and here at our practice, veneers have become a highly popular choice of treatment to resolve many aesthetic issues with the mouth and teeth. Other problems such as crookedness or gaps in the teeth which are not suitable for orthodontic treatment can also be treated using veneers Liverpool. Book a consultation with our dentist to find out more about how they may be the most suitable treatment option for you.

What are veneers?

Veneers Liverpool are thin porcelain shells that are attached to the surface of the tooth to mask any imperfections which may be present. They are designed according to your personal requirements and preferences. They can either be coloured to match your teeth to provide a natural look, or if you are looking into veneers to disguise the discolouration or yellowing of your teeth then you may like to consider whiter and brighter shades of veneers for a more attractive look. According to the dental situation you find yourself in you may choose to have a single veneer or if you are looking for a smile makeover, then you may choose to have a set of veneers covering the surface of multiple teeth, to give a more seamless finish and a more beautiful smile overall. Veneers are used in the treatment of gaps in the teeth and help provide a symmetry to the setting of your teeth. They are to be treated like your natural dentition and therefore require you to continue a good dental hygiene routine. An added advantage is that, unlike natural teeth which can stain due to smoking or certain foods and drinks, veneers Liverpool are stain resistant and therefore you are able to keep your smile looking beautiful without having to adjust your lifestyle choices.

Awakening your smile’s potential

veneers-liverpool

At Liverpool Smile Studio we empathise with our numerous patients out there who have struggled over the past year to get the cosmetic care they would have liked to, such as veneers Liverpool, due to forces beyond anyone’s control.

We know that the national lockdown has been tough on everyone and that a lot of people’s oral health has suffered as a result. Throughout our many years of service, our highly trained and efficient practitioners have seen teeth in every conceivable condition – so nothing surprised them and we never pass judgment over anybody based on their oral health.

As normality slowly re-emerges here in the UK, we are urging all those who are unhappy with how their teeth look to visit our practice and speak with one of our expert cosmetic dental practitioners about your options.

What are veneers Liverpool?

Before the pandemic hit, veneers Liverpool were one of our most widely sought-after treatments and now that things are easing it is no surprise that interest and engagement around veneers are increasing once more.

Many people will probably recognise veneer treatment from the ‘perfect’ smiles of celebrities and movie stars – thanks to the treatment’s proven ability to effectively create an entirely new smile and address several cosmetic problems all at once.

Effectively, veneers are wafer-thin, porcelain shells that are bonded over the patient’s tooth to give it a new front. You can either get a single veneer for a chipped, stained, or broken tooth, or a full set of veneers to get a whole new, cohesive and whiter-looking smile.

Despite their popularity amongst the Hollywood-elite, veneers are not as expensive as you may think and here at Liverpool Smile Studio, we have treatment plans to suit every budget. 

What does veneer treatment involve?

As with every treatment we provide at Liverpool Smile Studio, the installation of veneers is always a unique and tailored undertaking, as the veneer shells are made individually for each patient.

This is why the first stage in getting veneers always starts with a friendly, informal, and informative consultation and dental examination. As we’ll need to construct shells that fit perfectly over, and blend in with your surrounding teeth, we usually take extensive photographs and size measurements during this initial examination.

We can then send these sizes and photographs to our veneer technicians who will begin creating your unique veneer shells using porcelain or composite resin.

Before we can instal your veneers properly our cosmetic expert will need to remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth – to allow the veneer to bond permanently.

After a thin layer of enamel has been removed, we then etch your teeth slightly before applying a strong dental adhesive. Once the adhesive is applied we then attach the veneers over each tooth individually which effectively covers it and gives it a sturdy and clean aesthetic.

Veneers are one of the most effective ways to treat multiple cosmetic problems at once. Whether you have dental staining, chips, gaps, or anything in between, veneers can be a one-stop solution which – if properly maintained – can keep your smile looking bright and white for up to 10 years.

Why you might need them and what they are

veneers-liverpool

When an individual damages their tooth or multiple teeth, if no pain comes alongside it, it is very easy to ignore the damage and continue on with your daily life. In some cases, the damage can be cosmetic only and therefore if this is not considered a problem by the patient can be left unattended. However, in some cases the damage can leave nerves exposed and therefore discomfort and potentially pain can accompany the damaged tooth. This is where veneers Liverpool come in.

Veneers Liverpool are thin porcelain shells which are custom made to ensure the perfect fit is created for an individual’s tooth. These shells are bonded to the teeth using a special dental glue and protect your tooth from further damage. Essentially a veneer acts as a shield which can last up to 10 years when looked after correctly.

Is the veneer treatment costly or is it available on the NHS?

Whilst in some cases the NHS may provide the option to have this particular procedure, this is only when there is a clinical need to do so. The majority of cases fall under the cosmetic treatment bracket and therefore the costs are to be covered privately. This does not mean that only those in a certain income bracket are able to receive this care, luckily our dental practice offers competitive prices along with 0% finance plans. Our patients’ best interests are always at the heart of every treatment, procedure or general appointment we carry out so discuss your options with us so that we can assist you in whatever way we can.

Is the procedure considered to be painful?

When undergoing any treatment or procedure there can be a fear of putting ourselves through pain which could feel worse than the problem in the first place. Luckily when having veneers Liverpool this is not something that needs to concern our patients. During the process a local anaesthetic will be applied to the area, ensuring that any discomfort during the procedure is removed and only mild discomfort may occur shortly after. For our patients who are extremely nervous a mild sedative can also be administered, but it is important to discuss this with your dental team first as our first choice will be to administer an anaesthetic.

How many visits to the dental practice does this procedure need?

Whilst your procedure will on average require two appointments with our dental team, if working on a complete smile makeover then a couple of appointments beforehand will be needed so as to ensure that the plan is created precisely to your needs. This means a consultation to ensure that we are all working towards the same goal. During this time it will also allow you to discuss any concerns or thoughts you have about the procedure. Veneers can not only give you a whiter, more even smile, but also provide protection for it.

At all times we want our patients to remain comfortable and fully informed on every single treatment or procedure they consider and receive. Whilst we will always impart all of our knowledge to our patients it is important to note that all dental treatments and procedures carry potential risks. We therefore encourage all our patients to seek further information and advice from our dental team on any mentioned within this article.

Dental porcelain laminates are a very fast and permanent solution to tooth staining and chipping. With the option to use laminates to close gaps and create the impression of straighter teeth, they are a great option if orthodontics have been unsuccessful or only partially effective.

veneers-liverpool

The veneers Liverpool that we use in our clinic are made in dental laboratories and finished with sculpting. When fully bonded to your teeth, our dentists will give the laminate a final re-shaping, making it match any of the teeth around it for a subtle and natural look.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers go by many names, but most dentists will call them laminates or bondings. They were originally special-effects makeup made of plastic and temporarily glued to the front of the teeth, like an oral version of acrylic nails. 

The switch to porcelain was easy, as we were using porcelain crowns, bridges and dentures in the clinic, so the fabrication of porcelain veneers was not the challenge; getting them to stay in place was the challenge! With pre-etching of the enamel on the front of the tooth and the back of the laminate being treated with a UV cured resin, it was simple to fix the laminate in place averaging 10 to 30 years wear depending on care and lifestyle.

Porcelain composites

The fabrication of our veneers Liverpool is carried out in a local dental laboratory. In order to achieve a natural finish, we take very accurate measurements of the shade and translucency of your teeth so the opacity of the average veneer we make is just right. With the use of coloured resins, the final finish can be tailored by our dentist during the fitting.

UV light curing

The most critical part of veneers and the one which has the greatest effect on how long the veneers may last is the fitting. A very strong and consistent bond is required between the tooth’s surface and the laminate. This is achieved with UV cured resin which allows our dentist to place and adjust the veneers before using a UV lamp to fix the laminate in place. 

Caring for veneers

There are some long-term considerations to getting the most from laminates. It is still possible to get cavities around the perimeter of the laminate, which can extend deeply under the laminate too. This can be avoided with regular brushing. Debonding, where the laminate simply falls off the tooth is much rarer in modern dentistry but it can happen. If it happens to you, be aware that your veneers can be reattached.

The stain-resistant polymer-porcelain is stain resistant, so if you are a smoker or regularly drink red wine and black coffee your natural teeth may darken faster than the laminates, making them more obvious over time. This is only an issue if you don’t have a complete set of bonding. Luckily, our dental hygienist can help with teeth staining using a scale and polish or chemical whitening if required.

If you have any further questions about veneers Liverpool feel free to get in contact with us at the clinic.

As life slowly begins to return to ‘normal’ we advise anyone who feels this way to reach out to our friendly, approachable team about their options for cosmetic treatments such as veneers Liverpool.

Veneers are a proven, effective way of completely reshaping the aesthetics of your smile – and can have a wonderfully uplifting effect on both a patient’s outward appearance and their inner confidence.

What are veneers Liverpool?

Despite their long standing success in dealing with many cosmetic dental issues, many people out there are still unaware of what veneers in Liverpool are – and how they could be used to enhance their smiles.

Fundamentally, veneers are thin porcelain shells attached to the front of a patient’s teeth to give their smile a cohesive, clean togetherness.

You may recognise veneers from their popularity with celebrities and TV personalities, although they are not reserved only for the rich and famous.

Anyone unhappy with the aesthetics of their smile could potentially benefit from veneer treatment from us here at Liverpool Smile Studio – so why not contact us and find out?

How do veneers work?

As mentioned, veneers are thin shells made from porcelain that are bonded to the fronts of a patient’s teeth to cover any marks, stains, chips or discolouration. They can also be effective in bridging gaps between teeth.

Patients can opt for single veneers if they are looking to treat a specific tooth, or they can have an entire set of veneers fitted to give their whole smile a makeover.

The process of getting veneers from us here at Liverpool Smile Studio typically goes through three steps.

Consultation

We start every course of treatment we provide with a consultation. This allows our practitioners to establish whether or not you are eligible for veneer treatment, and work out the degree of care you need.

Impressions

Our veneer specialists then take extensive photographs and X-rays of your unique dental shape and structure, before sending these photographs to the veneer technician, who then uses them to create a unique set of veneers for you.

Fitting

After your veneers have been crafted by the engineer, they can then be placed over your teeth. This involves using specialist equipment to file down a portion of your enamel, before etching your teeth to allow for the bonding agent to work effectively. Then each individual veneer is placed over your teeth and left to fuse.

How can I get veneers?

As mentioned, at Liverpool Smile Studio we believe that it is important to start each treatment we provide with a friendly consultation and preliminary examination of a patient’s dental health. This gives our hygienists and dentists a chance to assess each patient, and identify whether or not they are eligible for veneer treatment.

If you have become embarrassed or concerned about how your teeth look, do not worry. By simply arranging a consultation with us here at Liverpool Smile Studio you can lie back and let us create you a beautiful, healthy smile that you can use proudly – every day!

Often called laminates or porcelain veneers, this procedure is gaining popularity each and every year. Why is this treatment so popular and where should you turn to for veneers Liverpool?

veneers-in-liverpool

This procedure can change the colour, shape or even size of your teeth! How can you improve the aesthetics of your teeth so dramatically? The process essentially involves placing very thin tooth-like slivers onto your teeth, usually your front teeth, fixing them in place with a bonding agent for a long lasting and improved smile.

Where to begin?

While the idea of any dental procedure may seem daunting the very best first step you can take is to contact our friendly team at the Liverpool Smile Studio.

During your consultation we will explain in detail exactly what you can expect from your treatment, including time scales for treatment, price, expected results and of course we will happily answer the questions that might be on your mind.

Though getting your veneers Liverpool is a very simple treatment we will still want to examine the current state of your teeth including past dental records, your facial features and take into consideration the desired outcome for yourself. We can then apply our leading industry knowledge to make sure you are happy with the results.

What are dental veneers made from?

Usually constructed from a resin compound or porcelain, dental veneers masterfully copy the natural surface of the teeth, and as a bonus they protect your actual teeth from the effects of certain food and drink even better.

Are these just for looks?

Okay so the most appealing aspect of these veneers is that they significantly improve the look of your teeth, with particular focus on the front teeth for that very reason. That being said, the benefits don’t stop at appearances. By providing a barrier between what comes into your mouth and your natural teeth your veneers Liverpool can actually help to reduce sensitivity. We will often use these to help protect and conceal chipped, broken or generally damaged teeth. They can even be used to help reduce wear on your teeth and generally improve the state of your oral health and wellbeing.

Is it going to cost a lot?

Dental treatments don’t have to cost a fortune and this is certainly the case with the Liverpool Smile Studio.

Modern dentistry has made a wealth of options available to patients looking to perfect their smiles. Veneers Liverpool illustrate just one such option in a string of dental cosmetic treatments that include dental implants and dental crowns. Each cosmetic dental treatment available at Liverpool Smile Studio has its own list of plus points for patients to consider and decide which treatment would best suit their dental appearance goals.

veneers-liverpool

As an aesthetics-focused dental treatment, veneers Liverpool are used to improve tooth appearance by masking imperfections such as discolouration, chips, cracks and irregularities in the shape and size of teeth. To correct these tooth appearance issues, an experienced dentist places a thin moulded material over the enamel and uses a specially-formulated bonding material to keep the dental cover in place. The experience and skills of a dental practitioner are required in knowing how to prepare the teeth receiving the dental veneers.

We take a look at why veneers Liverpool may be the most suitable treatment option for you.

Factors that promote veneers as a viable option

Tailor-made treatments

Each patient will require their own uniquely developed treatment plan that details the number of dental veneers to be used. These are specially prepared for each tooth receiving treatment to match the size and colour of neighbouring teeth.

Protective benefits

Dental veneers offer amazing protective benefits as they strengthen teeth against damage like fractures and cracks. An additional protective benefit is that the coverings alleviate the pressure placed on teeth during biting and chewing.

Offers a quick-fix solution to filling in relatively small gaps in teeth

Patients with slight gap issues in the dental arch may find that these slivers of material can resolve these issues quickly and effectively. The process to receive veneers is very simple with little to no preparation (depending on the patient’s situation) needed before the placing of them.

Hides a multitude of teeth defects

One of the attractions of dental veneers is their incredible versatility. A diverse number of aesthetic issues can be fixed with dental veneers: permanent stains, gaps, misshapen teeth and chipped and broken teeth.

Friendly on the gums

Unlike other dental treatments that may be harsh on other sensitive mouth structures such as the gums, there is relatively no discomfort to having veneers placed on teeth.

Strong and reliable

An ethical dental clinic such as Liverpool Smile Studio offers patients effective treatments in dental veneers using durable dental materials for long-term efficacy.

Easy maintenance

Patients do not need to fuss over their in-home oral hygiene practices to clean veneers. All that is needed are dentist-recommended cleaning practices such as brushing and flossing. Patients may be asked to pay attention to not using cleaning products with abrasive ingredients that may damage or detract from the aesthetic value of dental veneers. It is best to discuss suitable product brands with our dentist.

To achieve the look of perfect teeth relatively quickly, why not consider how veneers can help you attain your cosmetic dental goals. Our excellent dentist at Liverpool Smile Studio is happy to answer your questions and we look forward to helping you design a smile that will create the best impression of you.

veneers-liverpool

Versatile, durable, reliable aesthetically pleasing – the list of the advantages of Veneers Liverpool in cosmetic and restorative dentistry is an enviably long one. It is no wonder then that Veneers Liverpool make the list of our top cosmetic dental treatments to help patients fix a variety of issues that undermine attractive smiles. Patients appreciate the quick turnaround time as well as the simple and straightforward process involved in receiving Veneers Liverpool.  Dental veneers allow patients to change the colour of teeth, correct the shape of teeth and resolve imperfections such as chipped or cracks in teeth.

What to know when considering veneers

Teeth may need to be prepared

Some patients will need to have a bit of teeth enamel filed before they can have a dental shell placed over the tooth or teeth. This has to take place for bonding between dental shell and tooth can be secured.

Choice in colour and shape of the dental shell

Veneers are custom-made for each patient to better match natural teeth. Our cosmetic dentist will help patients select the right shade of white along with the correct tooth shape so that the receiving tooth or teeth looks a natural part of the mouth. When it comes to choosing the most favourable dental shell shape, our experienced cosmetic dentist will factor in a patient’s gender, age and face shape.

Worth the cost of treatment

By and large, veneers are considered a cosmetic dental treatment and patients will have to consider the cost involved.

Protects the receiving tooth

As these tooth-coloured shells are form-fitted over the tooth, it offers a form of protection against chipping or cracking and prevents these imperfections from worsening.

Veneers need to be cared for

Dental caps are highly durable and offer a relatively long life of service provided they are looked after as recommended by our dentist. Patients are advised against using their teeth to open bottle caps or for any other purpose other than eating food as these behaviours including teeth grinding can put the longevity of dental caps at risk.

Also, to protect their reformed smiles, patients are urged to commit to a dentist-recommended oral hygiene practice to ensure teeth and gum health.

Why we recommend tooth-coloured shells

Tooth-coloured shells can be used to correct a multitude of teeth flaws from misalignment and gaps to discoloured and chipped teeth.

Tooth-coloured shells are bonded to enamel so they are comfortable and are easy on the gums.

Depending on a patient’s situation, the process can take as little as two dental appointments.

Tooth-coloured shells require no additional maintenance – just take care of them like you do natural teeth.
