What are the pros and cons of getting veneers?

When you are considering veneers in Bournemouth at Castle Lane Dental Care, your dentist will give you all the information you need. A great dental practitioner will always give you both the benefits and the challenges of any treatment so that you are prepared and can properly weigh up your options.

Veneers are a relatively simple piece of dentistry that can be used to great effect to repair chips or cracks, close gaps in the teeth or be used to hide permanent stains. They are a hard, thin cover that is shaped and placed over the top of any damaged, discoloured or misshapen tooth to make it appear like a perfect one is in its place. They are held in place by a very hard dental cement.

veneers-in-BournemouthWhat is great about veneers?

Veneers are durable and very seldom do they get dislodged. They are designed to last many years. They offer a natural looking solution to minor dental issues that does not require extensive shaping or orthodontics.

When they are used to change the colour of a tooth, the effect is permanent and will not require topping up in the future. Some people choose to have a full set of veneers to give them a uniform, stain resistant smile for this reason.

What are the things you need to consider when getting veneers?

Once veneers are in place, they are permanent and cannot be removed. They are supported by the teeth beneath them and so these need to be in a good state of health. They do not protect the teeth from things like gum disease so you still need to be diligent with your dental hygiene routine.

It is difficult to match the shade of your other teeth precisely although your dental professional at Castle Lane Dental Care will be able to get very close when you get veneers in Bournemouth at our clinic. Your practitioner will be able to show you pictures of someone who has had veneers so you can see the high degree of match that is possible for yourself.

There are always a number of things to think about whenever you have dental treatments and so we are pleased to offer an extensive consultation to anyone considering veneers in Bournemouth at Castle Lane Dental Care.

See yourself differently with veneers

At Castle Lane Dental Care, we can help you to complete or restore your look through our dental practices.

veneers-in-BournemouthWhat are veneers in Bournemouth used for?

Veneers are available primarily as a cosmetic treatment. However, they are an option that can be offered to patients who have a chip or crack in their tooth as well. Sometimes they are even used to cover small gaps.

How do they work?

When you come to our clinic in Bournemouth, veneers are something you can discuss in detail with your dentist. However, to give you a brief overview, they are thin pieces of a durable material such as porcelain. These pieces fit over the top of your existing tooth to change the shape or colour of it in order to hide stains, close gaps or cover chips.

Each veneer is specially created to fit the tooth it is made for. In order to get them to sit flush with the surrounding teeth, a corresponding thin layer of enamel needs to be removed before impressions are taken to use to fit the veneers.

Once they have been created and returned to us at Castle Lane Dental Care, we apply them to your teeth using a dental cement. Initially, once the veneer is placed, we can move it around in order to get it into the exact position. When this has been achieved, we shine a light on it, which activates an ingredient in the cement causing it to harden very quickly. We then remove any excess cement and your veneer is fitted.

You can expect it to last between five and ten years. During that time, the veneers are stain resistant and very hard wearing so your teeth are effectively strengthened. They will also be matched closely to any teeth you do not have veneers on so that your whole set looks natural.

Some people choose to have a full set of veneers as a preventive measure and to give them a uniform look to their smile.
