Having a damaged tooth can become a problem for many reasons. Damage to teeth or parts of your teeth can affect some of your normal daily activities, including speaking and eating as well as causing a cosmetic concern that can lower your self esteem and confidence.
Veneers are very small pieces of porcelain which cover the front surface of the tooth, resulting to either restore your tooth or cover an underlying cosmetic defect that cannot be removed conservatively.
Veneers were invented by a California dentists many years ago but they fell off in a very short time as they were held on by denture adhesive. They were, however, useful for temporarily changing the appearance of actors’ teeth.
Today porcelain veneers are etched on the fitting surface and bonded with the latest composite resins to form an incredibly strong bond.
Today, with improved cements and bonding agents, they typically last 10-30 years. They may have to be replaced in this time due to: cracking, leaking, chipping, discoloration, decay, shrinkage of the gum line and damage from injury or tooth grinding.
This treatment beneficial for people with mildly irregularly shaped, badly discoloured or cracked teeth. Once they are applied to the outer surface of teeth they improve the colour of the tooth and hide any defects that might exist underneath. For example, mottling, cracks, or severe discolouration of teeth can all be treated very successfully, with the application of porcelain tooth veneers. Veneers can also be used to improve the shape of teeth; narrow or peg-shaped teeth, small gaps, or slightly out of position teeth can all be improved.
At Re-enhance, veneers cost £395 per tooth, but this depends on the total number of veneers or other restorations such as crowns and bridges and overall treatment for the patient. You can book a consultation with one of our dentists for an individual assessment and quote.
