Advantages of Dental Veneers
You’d be surprised how many people in Clapham would benefit from a dental veneer! Perhaps your front tooth is still chipped from that time at school when one of the other kids damaged it by accident, or maybe you cracked it ill advisedly trying to open a bottle with your teeth that time? Dental chips, cracks and rough edges can occur for a number of reasons; whether you’ve suffered an injury or your enamel has already weakened.
Here at the Crescent Lodge Dental practice in Clapham we can restore your tooth so that it looks just as it did originally, in a natural looking way. We do that using dental veneers.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers is the name given to ultra-thin slivers of porcelain that are used to conceal damage on your teeth. They have to be made precisely. Each bit is carefully constructed to perfectly fit your broken tooth. Additionally, prior to application, your tooth will have to be carefully and precisely prepared in order to receive the veneer. A tiny bit of tooth enamel will be removed from the affected original tooth so that the veneer doesn’t cause a visible bulge.
How dental veneers in Clapham can help you
The most obvious reason for having restoration treatment on your teeth and a veneer fitted is to improve the aesthetic look of your teeth and smile. Employers are said to respond very favourably towards a great smile, with many of them admitting in various studies that they would be more likely to employ or promote someone with a more attractive smile over someone without.
It’s instinctive for us to respond positively towards handsomeness and recent research has shown that 50% of the population has declared that the most memorable feature is a smile. Could you be disadvantaging yourself in life by deciding not to restore your teeth?
Fitting dental veneers
Placing veneers is a simple procedure, The results are dramatic. The tooth that has always bothered you will no longer be broken. It will appear to be a healthy natural tooth. Your confidence in your appearance may well soar.
Once fitted, your veneer will be stain resistant, long-lasting and strong enough to offer added protection to your weakened original tooth, making it less likely to suffer further damage. There is no recovery time, so as soon as the veneer is fitted, you’ll be able to go back to work and show off your new smile.
Are you looking forward to feeling proud of your smile? You probably won’t be able to stop beaming but that’s fine because you’ll want to show it off!
