While dental hygiene is incredibly important, sometimes the mental effects of being dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile can be far more damaging to your self-esteem and confidence than you realise or would like to admit.
It’s completely normal to scrutinise your smile – everybody has imperfections that they wish they could change, such as chips, cracks, stains and gaps. The good news is that it’s possible to achieve the perfect smile with veneers fitted by the finest dentist in Lancaster.
What Exactly are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, durable shells which are custom-made for each patient. To create dental veneers, the Bay Dental team of cosmetic dentistry experts will take a mould of your teeth and then create veneers which will give your teeth a uniform, natural appearance and solid bite. Dental veneers are designed to only cover the visible portions of the teeth, which allows you to preserve the majority of your natural tooth structure while enjoying the cosmetic benefits of veneers.
What to Expect From Dental Veneers
At the beginning of the veneering process, your dentist will make room for each veneer by removing a very thin layer of enamel from each tooth you have requested to be covered. After these initial preparations, your dentist will take a mould of your teeth which will be used to create your veneers. In most instances, a temporary set of veneers will be applied to protect your teeth until your very own veneers are ready.
Taking Care of Your Dental Veneers
After your veneers have been attached, the Bay Dental team will arrange a follow-up appointment to make sure that they fit comfortably, and the bond used to affix them is secure. The type of veneers Bay Dental offers are resistant to staining, but it is advisable to floss and brush them daily to keep them in the best possible condition. Veneers that are looked after properly can last more than 20 years.
