Dental veneers to improve your smile
Unfortunately many of us have teeth that are stained, chipped, twisted or just out of line with the rest. Even though these teeth are perfectly healthy, they can spoil an otherwise lovely smile. Fortunately, there are ways that the appearance of these teeth can be considerably improved whether its a single tooth or several teeth.
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is crucial to us at Bancroft Dentistry but we can also understand that you might want to improve upon your smile, and this can have added well-being benefits as well as a boosting confidence.
One way of reshaping a tooth or teeth is the use of dental veneers. These are like false fingernails that are bonded to the natural teeth to change their colour or appearance. The bond is strong enough for ordinary biting and chewing , but you will have to make some adjustments to your lifestyle, for example, giving up opening beer bottles or hairclips with your teeth, as this could cause the veneer to crack or de bond completely !
Veneers can be made in various materials, but they are designed to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. A beautiful smile is a natural blend of teeth and eyes. It’s interesting how we notice the eyes of someone first if they have a beautiful smile, but the teeth are noticed first if a tooth is discoloured, chipped or missing.
Understanding how a single tooth can affect the rest of your smile is an important part of cosmetic dentistry, and sometimes the most difficult cases are the most simple ones. If you are interested in knowing more about how Bancroft Dentistry can help improved you smile, please contact us today.
