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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
