Smiling in the mirror and seeing several cosmetic flaws like chipped teeth can be a very overwhelming experience that leaves you hiding your precious smile. And if the flaws are left untreated, some cracks or chips can widen, exposing the inner parts of your tooth to infection. One most common treatment for damaged or cracked, or chipped teeth is porcelain veneers.
Here, in this article, we will discuss why porcelain veneer is good for your chipped teeth. So, keep reading.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Before you learn why porcelain veneers are the best option for your cosmetic flaws, you need to understand what is it.
Porcelain veneers are thin tooth-coloured ceramic shells attached to the front surface of teeth to enhance their appearance. Once applied, they treat a number of cosmetic problems, including cracked or chipped, broken and discoloured teeth.
Each set of porcelain veneers is custom-made so that it can give you everything from a subtle boost to a dramatic smile transformation. The process to get porcelain veneers from our dentists at Blackburn usually takes around 2 visits and once they are placed, they can easily last for about 15 to 20 years.
How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?
In the past, the first step in applying porcelain veneers was to file down the tooth to make room for the new layer of porcelain. But now, with modern veneer technology available at Healthy Smiles, chipped teeth can be treated with ultra-thin prep-less porcelain veneers. These are an exciting new option that allows us to fasten your veneers directly to your enamel without removing your natural teeth, making them the best choice for anyone concerned about damaging the natural structure of their tooth.
Porcelain veneers are placed in about two visits. At Healthy Smiles, our dentists will take an x-ray of your teeth and take bite impressions and use them to create a smile design that will be sent to our dental laboratory, where your custom veneers are crafted prior to the process. Once we receive your custom veneers, you will return to our clinic so that we can replace your teeth with your custom-crafted porcelain veneers. During the procedure, our caring dentists numb the area around the teeth to be treated to prevent any sensitivity or discomfort.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers To Fix Your Chipped Teeth
At Healthy Smiles, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to transform any damaged or discoloured teeth into gorgeous smiles, but porcelain veneers are a popular solution. The benefits of porcelain veneers are many as they can be fit and ready within a few weeks. Some of the major benefits you can look forward to when opting for porcelain veneers include the following –
- Long-lasting and stain resistant
- The colour and shape can be individually crafted depending on your teeth
- They are natural-looking and can provide strength to the original tooth’s structure
- Sometimes called instant orthodontics, porcelain veneers can be used to treat uneven tooth spacing and minor misalignments
