I’ve been hearing about the ‘Porcelain Veneer’ option of smile rejuvenation more and more frequently in recent years. For starters, it’s in the press with every A-List who’s-who from Jon Bon Jovi to Halle Berry… it seems those stars with perfect smiles are dreamed-up no less than the scripts that make them stars in the first place – but lets face it, they do have perfect smiles don’t they!
And so they should; how would you feel starring in front of millions of people and being made to bare all from your big toe to your gummy smile in the good name of Hollywood? It’s even been proven that an attractive smile can make you more confident, more successful, and even more intelligent looking too. Yet, just because these a-list stars set the standard, it doesn’t mean that they are in a league of their own. Porcelain Veneers are one of those cosmetic treatments straddling the public domain.
Reasonably priced, wonderfully easy to fit and available with the specialists at Time Dental, a dentist Farnham, veneers can also be used not just to bring back that white toothed sparkle, but to bridge gaps and cover tooth chips; whether stained, damaged or badly worn, you will leave with an A-Grade smile.
Even the technical jargon is as easy as 1, 2, 3… Veneers are wafer-thin lamintates or shells of tooth-coloured material usually made out of porcelain due to its strength and durability. They are “cemented” to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance. A good analogy would that be that veneers are for your teeth what false fingernails are for your hands… although, they’ll last a whole lot longer, and don’t come in fancy colours(!)
