Want to straighten or whiten your smile? Get porcelain veneers fitted in Essex

From time to time, we have all looked through a celebrity magazine and stared quizzically at someone whose teeth have seemingly transformed overnight.

Years ago, cosmetic dentistry was truly a luxury reserved for the stars of Hollywood due to prohibitive pricing; that has all changed.

Porcelain Veneers in EssexMany dental surgeries across the UK now offer a range of cosmetic dental treatments to all their patients, so that perfect smile is now within your reach!

A popular form of cosmetic dentistry is the acquisition of porcelain veneers in Essex. These provide instant straightening for slightly misaligned teeth and can also whiten your teeth without the need for cleaning!

Advantages of porcelain veneers

At Crofts Dental Practice, our dental team are extremely experienced in fitting porcelain veneers in Essex and have helped many of our patients straighten their teeth using them.

There are many other positive aspects to having dental veneers fitted, which we have heard from our patients time and time again.

Stain resistant

With the average diet containing multiple acidic foods such as coffee and orange juice, it is no surprise that our teeth can become stained.

Even if you have your teeth whitened professionally, given time, they may become stained again, meaning you can either choose to have them whitened again or you may opt to have veneers fitted.

One benefit of porcelain veneers is that they are stain resistant. So even weeks after they have been fitted, your smile will look as good as it did when you first left our dental surgery.

Corrects imperfections

Staining isn’t the only issue that veneers can correct.

Through our busy lives, we may incur minor or major cracks on our teeth, causing them to become misaligned or misshapen.

When you come to our dental surgery, we will examine your teeth and customise veneers to restore the natural shape to your teeth and hide the appearance of any cracks or misalignment. As dental veneers can be fitted in two settings, it really is a quick dental makeover.

Less invasive

Interestingly, many dentists are using porcelain veneers in Essex to replace the traditional dental crown. Traditionally, when a patient had a crown fitted, it was an arduous task of slowly prepping the tooth with specific drilling techniques, to ensure the crown stayed in place. As veneers are easier to fit and have a stronger bond to the tooth, they offer the perfect solution to traditional crowns.

Easy maintenance

Dental veneers have a long lifespan once fitted and require no special treatment to keep them looking their best. Indeed, all you need to do is keep up with your daily oral hygiene routine and your restoration will be easy to maintain.

Dental veneers are suitable for everyone not so confident about the look of their teeth and provide our customers with an instant boost of confidence. At Crofts Dental Practice, we offer our patients a free consultation and offer a dental plan to help you spread the cost.

What do you see when you look in the mirror?

Are you greeted with a super smart smile or a rather sad looking grimace with crooked or yellowing teeth? Today, more than ever, we all want to look our best and all of us here at Crofts Dental Practice, want to help your teeth look and feel the best that they possibly can!

Veneers in EssexIf it is a bright white smile that you feel that you are missing, then having your teeth whitened could be the answer, but if your teeth are crooked or maybe chipped, another solution could be veneers in Essex!

Can Veneers in Essex solve both stained and crooked teeth?

Yes!  You heard correctly. If you have overlapping or wonky teeth and you think they need whitening up, veneers in Essex could help by changing the size, colour and shape of your tooth.  These are made of very thin porcelain and are attached to the front of your natural tooth, simply and easily and can be expected to last from 10 to 20 years.

How exactly does this treatment work?

First, your teeth will need to be prepared for the procedure, sometimes a small piece of tooth needs to be taken away to allow enough room for the veneer to be attached.  It is possible to have this procedure for just one tooth or for a number of teeth.  Depending on what is needed for each specific case, we can make the shape of the new tooth covering longer or even closer to other teeth.

If there is just a single tooth that is the issue, because of staining, for example, the porcelain can be matched in colour to the other teeth in the mouth. But if it is a Hollywood glamour puss smile that you are after, all of your front teeth can be covered and made lighter in colour and in shape if that is desired.

The treatment of porcelain veneers takes longer than composite as these are crafted by a technician, so could take a couple of weeks, but we think the result is well worth it!

Composite bonding

Bonding is a great way to repair cracks and holes that affect the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Bonding is highly adaptable and tends to be a better option budget-wise than your other choices. This is a non-invasive treatment that can often be completed in a single visit. It does not require special fitting as the resin is shaped in-situ.

Crowns

Crowns are used to cover larger holes in teeth. They are used to cover the whole tooth and are very durable. Crowns are typically used when the area where the repair is required is often subject to heavy usage.

Veneers

The great thing about veneers in Essex is that each one can cover the whole front of a tooth thus masking any chips or cracks. You can have multiple veneers applied to adjacent teeth to create a uniform appearance to the smile. They are ultra-thin and easy to apply is just a couple of appointments.

If you have sensitive teeth or you are not ready to commit to more invasive treatments, dental veneers at Crofts Dental Practice in Essex may be the answer to your smile concerns.

Porcelain Veneers in EssexWhat are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain shells, which are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. When preparing your teeth, your dentist will take impressions and remove a very small layer of tooth enamel in order to ensure that the veneer will sit securely on your tooth. Since they are custom-made, veneers are perfectly shaped to complete your smile and match the natural colour of your teeth. In your second appointment, your dentist will attach the veneers to the front of your tooth with the aid of a special adhesive. With porcelain veneers, you can have a brand new smile in just two visits to the dentist.

Advantages of porcelain veneers

Although they won’t last a lifetime, with proper care, veneers can prove to be quite durable. As long as your follow your dentist’s advice and take good care of your teeth and gums, porcelain veneers can last up to an impressive 15 years. Since porcelain is a strong and durable material, comparable to tooth enamel, it can endure the pressure caused by everyday chewing and biting. Unlike tooth enamel, porcelain can withhold its brightness for a longer period of time, since it is unaffected by stains and cavities. However, neglect to take care of your teeth and veneers can lead to gum disease.

 Am I eligible for porcelain veneers?

Although veneers are a relatively inexpensive and easy procedure, not all people are good candidates for them. If you have decayed teeth or suffer from gum disease, then these issues have to be treated beforehand. Similarly, if a tooth has very little enamel on it, then a dental veneer won’t stick properly onto its surface. In this case, your dentist will suggest a porcelain crown.
