Dental Veneers

A small chip can be a major flaw when it comes to teeth. Even small imperfections draw the eye and can feel uncomfortable against your tongue. And left untreated, some cracks can widen, exposing the inner parts of your tooth to infection. One common treatment for damaged or chipped teeth is the application of porcelain veneers.

Cosmetic tooth veneers are thin ceramic shells applied to the surface of your teeth. They can be coloured and shaped in a variety of ways to match your other teeth and beautify your smile. Once applied, they cover chips and discoloration, replacing them with the appearance of a natural, perfect tooth.

In the past, the first step in applying veneers was to file down the tooth to make room for the new layer of porcelain. But now, with new advanced veneering technology available at Lane Ends Dental Practice , chipped teeth can be covered with ultra thin prepless veneers. These veneers are an exciting new option that allows us to fasten your veneers directly to your enamel without removing any of your natural tooth, making them a perfect choice for anyone concerned about damaging their tooth’s natural structure. They’re especially effective for those who want to enlarge small teeth. With

Porcelain veneers can be used to repair chipped teeth that are located in the smile zone. Porcelain laminate veneers consist of several thin layers of ceramic. Using a special adhesive, the veneers are bonded to the tooth to replace the original enamel. A very small amount of the original tooth enamel (generally less than a millimeter) in preparing for the veneer to create room for a comfortable fit.

Veneers may not be right for everyone. Chipped teeth which have been badly damaged by decay may not be able to hold a veneer, and may need other treatment. But for many people, veneers are a versatile and long-lasting treatment for almost any cosmetic dental problem.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure

Are you always unhappy with your pictures? Do you avoid having your photos taken?  It could be true for several people who are not happy with their teeth, which one of the most important and noticeable facial features. The two most common reasons for a person to hide their smile are:

  1. They may not like the look of their teeth
  2. They may have undesirable gaps between some teeth.

Irrespective of the reason, our cosmetic dentist would have several different treatment options that could help improve the condition of your teeth. In fact, the earlier you consult a cosmetic dentist, the better. He or she can give you a detailed analysis of what is wrong and what treatments could be undertaken to correct the situation.

Some of the most common corrective cosmetic dentistry procedures to get a smile makeover include:

1- Porcelain Veneers or Crowns for Gaps in Teeth

A common problem with majority of the patients who are worried about their smile is ‘gaps’. At times, people are born with such gaps in their teeth – that is, the problem is genetic. A gap could sometimes indicate a requirement for orthodontia and at other times they occur as a result of teeth which have been lost or damaged.

In both kinds of situations, dental treatments can help minimise or remove the gap completely. In most cases, we would recommend porcelain crowns or porcelain veneers to fill up the space.

2- Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Some people are shy to smile because of big and unattractive spaces, which are visible in the mouth. These are usually due to some missing teeth. Cosmetic dentists may be able to resolve this problem with dental implants, which could greatly improve your smile. A bridge may also be used to fill up an awkward space.

3- Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most common and affordable cosmetic dentistry treatments. It is a fast, painless and inexpensive means of transforming your smile and making you look younger and healthier. Tooth discolouration can be caused by smoking, drinking coffee, eating some foods, or simply as a result of the natural aging process.

Bleaching, or whitening, teeth to a lighter, natural, shade can promote a more youthful look, and there are many teeth whitening products and treatments available. The most effective, long-lasting and safe methods of teeth whitening are performed by cosmetic dentists.

4- Gum Lifts

Also known as a gingivectomy, a gum lift is a cosmetic dentistry procedure where the gums are reshaped to result in a more aesthetically pleasing smile. In most cases, people will choose a gum lift if they have a ‘gummy’ smile, where the gums have not fully receded after the adult teeth erupt, or in cases where people’s lips allow a lot of gum to show when they smile.

Gum lifts are generally only needed on the front teeth – as these are more visible when smiling and speaking – and technological dentistry advancements have ensured that gum lift treatments are now far less invasive and painful than they have been in the past. Nowadays, cosmetic dentistry professionals use lasers to reshape the gums, resulting in minimal bleeding, and faster healing times.
