A Great Smile With Veneers
At Azure Dental, Formby
Porcelain dental veneers can be used in many ways to dramatically improve the colour, shape and position of teeth. If teeth are chipped, worn, discoloured or crooked, veneers can be designed and manufactured to transform the teeth to provide the ideal appearance for your smile.
For patients who do not want to complete lengthy orthodontic treatment, veneers can offer the perfect solution – straight teeth in just two visits.
As an alternative to porcelain veneers in some circumstances it may be possible to reshape the surfaces and tips of the teeth – termed aesthetic re-contouring. Slight adjustments to the surfaces can shape and level worn / chipped edges and disguise mildly rotated teeth.
Also crucial and often overlooked is the effect the gums have on the overall appearance of the smile. If the gum levels are incorrectly positioned and uneven, this will prevent even great teeth looking beautiful. Therefore as part of the initial planning phase for treatment, it needs to be determined if the gums need to be raised or lowered to ensure the ultimate result is achieved.
As a steadily growing local dental practice, we’re pleased to say that patients travel from around the Liverpool, Formby and Merseyside area to visit our practice.
So What Exactly Are Veneers?
Veneers are a wafer-thin overlay which improves the appearance of your teeth. A bit like cling film. Dependent on your needs, porcelain and composite being the most popular.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers typically last between five and ten years, while composite veneers tend to have a shorter life span.
To make your veneers last longer you should treat them as your teeth need to be treated.
