Have you heard a lot about veneers recently? How the latest celebrity has just had a new set of veneers? and now how even Tracey down the road is sporting them too? Liverpool Smile Studio says that veneers are such a popular option as they can totally transform your smile, without being seen as a major dental treatment. Liverpool veneers can drastically improve the appearance of teeth that are: crooked, chipped, discoloured, or oddly shaped. The procedure involves removing a thin layer from the outer enamel of the tooth, in order to give it a rough texture, and then fixing a thin piece of porcelain to the tooth. Veneers in Liverpool really do improve the appearance of your teeth. You can receive outstanding results and a killer smile in just a few visits to the dentist.

veneers-in-LiverpoolAre there any alternatives to Veneers in Liverpool?

Veneers aren’t the only option available at Liverpool Smile Studio. To straighten out those crooked teeth, Invisalign clear braces are another great treatment designed to give you natural looking, beautiful, straight teeth. Invisalign are an excellent option for adults, as they’re almost invisable – hardly anyone will know you’re wearing a brace! They’re also removable when eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, this means that food will not get stuck in between the wires, and any usual dental hygiene problems associated with braces have been totally resolved. Liverpool Smile Studio have three teeth whitening procedures available to patients who want to brighten up that smile: Home whitening is done in the home by the patient using whitening gel and a mouth tray, it takes two to three weeks for results to be achieved. Zoom whitening is carried out in the surgery and only takes one hour to complete, and HD Whitening is a combination of them both and will achieve maximum results. Whatever you would like the desired outcomes to be, Liverpool Smile Studio has the answer; be it clear braces, teeth whitening or veneers in Liverpool, there will be away to drastically improve the aesthetics of your teeth, and give you that knockout smile you’ve always dreamed about.

So, you’d like straight teeth but for whatever reason braces aren’t an option? Or you have teeth that are chipped, different sizes, or they may have small gaps in between them? Veneers may be the solution to give you those perfect looking teeth. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded on to existing teeth, in order to improve their appearance. Some of the enamel will be stripped away from your current teeth to prepare them for the treatment, which sometimes involves the use of a local anaesthetic. the veneers will then be matched to the shade of your current teeth to ensure they look natural and healthy.

porcelain-veneers-in-LiverpoolIncreasingly in Liverpool, veneers are being sought by people who want to invest in an instant make-over for teeth that have become worn, chipped, broken and discoloured.

Veneers can completely transform your smile.

And it is not just chips and stains that veneers can help solve. Patients are finding that they also do a great job of masking minor misalignments.

But what are veneers and how do they work?

Veneers are very thin porcelain shells that are bond over your teeth, like a nail extension.

When you come to the Smile Studio for veneers in Liverpool, dentists here will plan your treatment, which will take two visits, or more if you are having multiple veneers for a smile makeover.

Your veneers will be custom-made to fit your mouth. Dr James Bennett, our talented cosmetic dentist, will need to prepare your teeth by painlessly removing a very thin layer of enamel, and creating a rough surface for the veneer to be bonded to. This removal also ensures that the veneer is in line with your other teeth.

And that’s it! With good oral hygiene, your veneers can last for 10 years, possibly for ever, as they are incredibly strong and durable.

In Liverpool, veneers are often used as part of a smile make over, which is a combination of one or cosmetic dentistry techniques to completely transform a smile. We insist on taking time to design a smile that is not only brighter, but is also able to function as well as natural teeth. There’s no point in the brightest, whitest teeth if you can’t eat the foods you enjoy. That’s why we like to take our time in planning the size of your new teeth, the angles at which they bite and the gum position around them.

Veneers are porcelain shells that are fastened to the front of teeth to give them a natural and healthy look.

If you have damaged or chipped teeth, teeth that are discoloured or not properly aligned and you are based in Liverpool, veneers could be the option for you. At Liverpool Smile Studio we treat people every day with these types of issues and the veneers we put in place are able to transform the appearance of people’s teeth and give them renewed confidence in their smiles. They can hide discoloured teeth and be matched to the shade of your original teeth, most people will have no idea that they are not natural.

veneers-in-liverpoolVeneers were created in Hollywood in the late 1920s and were used during film shoots to make sure the actor’s smiles were looking their very best on screen, after all the looks of the stars were what brought many people to the cinema and actors’ appearances were important for their own career progression as well as the studios they worked for. Early veneers were very basic and merely a ‘quick fix’ they would often fall out in between takes because they were held in place delicately by a weak glue.

Thankfully, modern veneers are a world away from their early counterparts. The demand for veneers quickly spread like wildfire beyond the Hollywood Hills and cosmetic dentists had a very real need for a longer lasting and reliable veneer. Modern veneers can last beyond a decade with the correct care, and are secured in place by a robust dental bonding agent. So no need to worry about them falling out at an inopportune moment, unlike the actors of yesteryear!

Liverpool veneers

Veneers are a non-surgical treatment so there is no need for anaesthetics. They are increasingly popular for this reason, and because they are a brilliant option for those on a budget. You can resume your normal daily activities quickly after having your veneers added and they provide instant good results.

At Liverpool Smile Studio we offer a number of services, including veneers in Liverpool. If you feel self-conscious about your oral health or the look of your teeth, or have any problems with chipped or misaligned teeth, then dental veneers could be the solution you are looking for. Get in touch with us and one of our team will book you in for a free consultation where we can discuss the treatment in more detail with you.

If you’re reading this, chances are that you are interested in changing your smile with veneers. Veneers were originally an idea for creating instant bright teeth for actors in big budget movies. However, they were only a temporary solution and might only last as long as the film shoot, or in some cases not even that long! Today’s veneers can last anything up to 30 years and beyond, and are made of much stronger stuff! (Composite or dental porcelain to be precise.)

porcelain-veneers-liverpoolWhat’s the difference between composite and porcelain veneers?

If you’re considering veneers in Liverpool at our practice, you should know the difference between veneer types. Composite veneers can be “built up” inside the mouth using a “composite” that sets as it is applied to the tooth.

Porcelain veneers are a good long-term solution, as they can restore the tooth immediately to something similar to its original vibrancy and texture, meaning that it looks just like an ordinary tooth, but is actually a porcelain restoration.

There are a few kinds of porcelain that can be used for teeth. Very thin and relatively strong porcelain restorations are called “lumineers”. There are also very thin porcelain veneers called Da Vinic.

There are also ceramic and mac veneers, which can be used depending on the situation and the desired outcome.

In the past, dentists may also have used acrylic to create veneers but for a range of reasons, porcelain veneers are now preferred as a solution to cracked, or cosmetically damaged teeth.

When should I consider veneers?

At our practice in Liverpool, veneers should be considered if there is significant damage, wear or discolouration to your teeth. If there are only minor cosmetic blights you may want to carefully consider your options, as there may be a more suitable alternative. To find out if veneers are the right solution for you, you can talk with us over the phone, by email, or by visiting us at the practice for a cosmetic consultation.

If you have one or more teeth that have been fractured or discoloured then veneers may be a solution, provided the root of the tooth is healthy.

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments here at Liverpool Smile Studio. A single veneer can be used to improve the appearance of one tooth that is, for example, permanently discoloured or slightly chipped, whilst a full set enable your dentist to create a beautiful smile makeover.

smile-makeoverHow veneers work

A veneer is a micro-thin shell of porcelain that is placed over the front surfaces of the teeth to improve their appearance. They are suitable for use in both the upper and lower jaw, and can mask a multitude of smile problems.

At our Liverpool dental centre we often hear veneers being referred to as “like false fingernails for the teeth.” In some senses that is true, but there is one important difference; false nails don’t have a particularly long shelf life. Every veneer created at Liverpool Smile Studio is designed to be a long-term solution to your smile concerns.

With regular visits to your dentist and hygienist, and a fastidious home care routine, the veneers from Liverpool Smile Studio should last you for ten years or more.

The secret to successful veneer treatment is to create results that look as natural as they do beautiful. Each veneer is hand-crafted and designed to suit your individual dental situation.

We use veneers at our Liverpool clinic to improve the appearance of many common smile issues. These include:

  • Permanently stained or discoloured teeth, where teeth whitening treatment will not work
  • Teeth with small chips or cracks
  • Mild issues with alignment and spacing, as an alternative to orthodontics
  • Uneven smile lines
  • Worn teeth

The procedure

It takes at least two appointments to have your veneers fitted at our Liverpool dental clinic. During the first session your dentist will take photographs, impressions, and measurements as necessary. The will also prepare your teeth by removing a miniscule amount of tooth enamel to aid in the bonding process – this is done under local anaesthetic.

When your veneers are ready, you will be called back to Liverpool Smile Studio to have them fitted. Your dentist will check you are entirely happy before bonding them in place.

Veneers are an excellent way for a dentist to quickly make over your smile. At Liverpool Smile Studio we can use a single veneer to improve the appearance of one tooth (for example, if it is permanently stained or discoloured, or has a small chip or crack) or a full set to create a complete smile makeover.

porcelain-veneersOne of the key points to remember about veneers is that they require very little preparatory work on your teeth – all your dentist needs to do is to remove a very small amount of enamel to aid with the bonding process. That means the healthy tooth structure beneath the veneer is preserved, unlike some other procedures such as cosmetic crowns, where more extensive work is required.

Many patients only require two appointments at our Liverpool dental practice for this procedure, although if you opt for a complete smile makeover you will need between three and four appointments to enable your dentist to create the perfect smile for you.

The veneers used at Liverpool Smile Studio are designed for three things:

  • Aesthetic beauty
  • Natural appearance
  • Longevity

With a good oral health routine at home and regular visits to your dental practice, your veneers should last you for more than ten years. Your dentist will ensure that while they create a noticeable difference to your smile, they will also look completely natural.

Liverpool veneers: the treatment process

First you will come into our Liverpool practice for a cosmetic consultation.To ensure your veneers bond firmly with your teeth, your dentist will remove a very small amount of enamel from each tooth’s surface, under either local anaesthetic or sedation.

Each veneer will be made to the exact same thickness as the amount of enamel removed, for a completely natural appearance. The only exception is if a tooth is cracked or chipped – in this case, the veneer will be made thicker to cover the damaged area.

Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and when your veneers are ready you will be called back to our Liverpool clinic to have them fitted. Strong bonding agent holds them in place.

With porcelain veneers, a cosmetic dentist can create a beautiful smile makeover in just a few visits. At Liverpool Smile Studio we offer high-quality, hand-crafted veneer work that – so long as you take good care of it – should last for ten years or more.

veneers-liverpoolThe ideal summer makeover

As with many cosmetic dental procedures, veneers originated in Hollywood. The first versions were not designed to last; they were created to temporarily alter the appearance of an actor’s teeth and would usually drop out after a few takes, because they were bonded in place with denture cement.

However, cosmetic dentists quickly saw the potential to use veneers to create a more long-term solution to smile concerns, and after stars and celebrities started to wear them, their popularity and availability grew rapidly.

Modern veneers are designed to be a fast yet long-lasting way for a dentist to make over your smile’s appearance. A single veneer can improve the look of a permanently discoloured, chipped or mildly cracked tooth, whilst a full set can create a smile makeover, improving issues with spacing, uniformity, and whiteness.

Liverpool veneers

A veneer is a micro-thin porcelain shell bonded over the front surfaces of the front teeth. They can be used in both the lower and upper jaw. Unlike other tooth restorations, such as crowns, there is very little work required on your teeth before veneers are placed, meaning that healthy tooth structure will be preserved.

A very thin amount of enamel will be removed from the surface of your teeth under local anaesthetic to aid with the bonding process. Each veneer will be made to the same thickness as the amount of enamel removed, with the exception of veneers covering cracked teeth. In that case they will be reinforced in the cracked area.

Veneer placement requires a minimum of two appointments at our Liverpool dental practice. If you are having a complete smile makeover, additional visits will be required.

Only when you are totally happy will your dentist bond your veneers in place with a strong dental bonding agent.

When you come into our Liverpool practice for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, your cosmetic dentist will perform a thorough dental health check as well as checking that veneers are the best treatment to suit your needs. Veneer treatment should only be carried out on a healthy mouth, so if any health issues are spotted we will treat these first.

In preparation for placing your veneers, your dentist will remove a very thin layer of enamel from the surface of your teeth. This helps with the bonding process, creating a rougher base for your veneers to be attached to.

Each veneer will be made to the exact same thickness as the amount of enamel removed, to ensure an entirely natural appearance. The only exception is if a veneer is being used to cover a chipped tooth; in that case, it will be made thicker in the chipped area.

You will be called back to our Liverpool practice when your veneers are ready. With regular dentist visits and good oral hygiene, they can last for ten years.
