Which Veneers Are Best for You?

If you feel as though your teeth are crooked or uneven, you’re not alone. It may be that they’re slightly discoloured, chipped, have spaces, or one is a little shorter than the others. When this is the case, veneers can be a simple yet effective solution. The right veneers can completely transform your smile, dramatically changing the appearance of your teeth. At Dental Solutions, we have years of experience helping patients achieve their dream smile with the help of veneers.

What Are Veneers And Who Can Have Them?

A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain used to re-create the aesthetic natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to tooth enamel. They are custom made to the contour of your own teeth and are bonded to the tooth’s prepared original enamel.

Anyone who feels as though their teeth could benefit from some tweaking here and there may consider getting veneers. Veneers are popular because can be used to correct individual teeth as well as the whole mouth. It completely depends on the patient’s needs: it is always best to discuss this with a dentist to check your suitability.

What Are The Benefits Of Veneers?

Veneers carry many benefits which make them a common choice for those seeking cosmetic dentistry in Warrington to correct the appearance of their teeth. These benefits include:

  • Improving discolouration
  • Disguising chipped, gappy or uneven teeth
  • Long-lasting results
  • Quick and simple procedure

Which Veneers Are Best? Dental Composite Veneers vs Porcelain Veneers

To implement veneers, the dentist will need to remove the tiniest amount of enamel from the tooth. It’s important to note that this doesn’t damage your oral health in any way. The surgeon will then fix a strong veneer to your existing tooth. There are two types of veneers, both of which have their own individual benefits.

Porcelain veneers are the most common choice for patients thanks to their natural looking results. They’re made of high-quality ceramic, meaning they’re extremely durable. Typically, they last between 10-15 years and cost around £600 per tooth.

Alternatively, dental composite veneers – also known as composite bonding – are a relatively new treatment which offers similar results to porcelain veneers but for a fraction of the price. The treatment is less invasive, meaning that no enamel is shaved from the tooth. Because of this, they are not as durable as porcelain veneers. Instead, they last 4-8 years and the cost is approximately £400 per tooth.
