Porcelain Veneers Cheltenham
Porcelain veneers are a fast and great way to improve the appearance of your smile significantly. They are also called ‘dental veneers’.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-coloured porcelain shells that are made to bond to the front surface of your teeth.
They are excellent for treating misaligned teeth that have stains, chips, and gaps, especially in front teeth.
Porcelain veneers are best for improving shape, length, size and tooth colour.
These veneers can also straighten your teeth and remake your smile. Porcelain veneers, when done right, look like natural teeth.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are made using a durable ceramic material, built to last for a long time. The thin shells are custom-made to fit over the front of your teeth. When fitted correctly, porcelain veneers can hide dental imperfections.
Fixing Porcelain Veneers
Your Cheltenham dentist begins the procedure by taking an impression of your teeth.
From this impression, a new veneer is custom made to perfectly fit your tooth.
Your dentist then fixes the veneer to the affected tooth using strong cement. The veneer can be colour-matched to the adjacent teeth.
This makes the veneer blend in like your natural tooth.
