Most people can agree on the fact that having an attractive smile makes us feel better about ourselves and more confident in social situations as a result.
Your smile is the first thing someone notices about you.
If you are self-conscious about your teeth this can affect your willingness to show off your smile, but it can also impact how you carry yourself and how comfortable you are when having conversations.
With this in mind, it is no wonder people are coming to their dentists looking to whiten and straighten their teeth, fill gaps and cover up chips and cracks.
Thankfully, due to advances in cosmetic dentistry, we have many solutions to target your issues and concerns regarding your teeth and smile.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain. We can manage the shape and colour, then we bond the shell over your existing teeth. When in place, veneers give the same appealing, white sparkle as natural healthy teeth.
At Perfect Practices, we offer several different types of veneers including:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Ultrathin Veneers
- Teeth whitening – if you do not want to commit to veneers
Why are more people getting veneers?
In recent years veneers have become more normalised, and we are receiving more and more patients ready to take the leap and commit to achieving a new, beautiful, sparkling set of teeth!
We believe these changes are down to several reasons:
Increased affordability: although veneers remain a luxury, we have many payment plans available at Perfect Practices so that the treatment is not restricted to celebrities and famous people anymore
Normalised by celebs: the pearly white ‘Hollywood smile’ was once perceived as an extravagance deemed only by the few. We are used to seeing this look on our favourite celebrities, but recently veneers have become more common for the everyday individual.
Alternative options: the ‘Hollywood smile’ is not the only option we offer, and there are much more natural-looking alternatives to choose from for those who want a more subtle look
What issues can veneers target?
If you feel self-conscious about your smile your dentist can offer isolated treatments specific to your issues. Veneers can target multiple issues including:
Stained teeth: if you are not happy with the colour of your teeth and they have suffered staining from coffee or red wine over the years then veneers can be a great solution. Some staining is resistant to teeth whitening, so veneers provides a solution for this
Cracks and chips: General wear and tear can lead to small cracks and chips in the teeth and some people find this very frustrating – we can shape and mould veneers into the perfect tooth-shaped size so that you don’t need to deal with annoying chips.
Misaligned teeth: Straight teeth are a common desire and if your teeth are misaligned, veneers allow for the effect of naturally straight teeth, without having to go through the usual waiting period that’s involved with normal straightening treatments such as braces.
