Considering Veneers? Here’s What You Need to Know

Veneers are turning almost a century old. They were conceived in the late 1920s by Hollywood dentist Dr Charles Pincus. Dr Pincus placed temporary false fronts to stars’ teeth, giving them beautiful smiles. This, in turn, made stunning smiles a trademark of Hollywood beauty.

With advances in dentistry and technology, there are more options to have greater smiles. Dental treatments are now becoming more accessible than ever before.

Here at Saving Faces, we offer a range of cosmetic dental treatments that give you the best smile possible – such as Veneers in Liverpool. But if you are wondering about veneers, here are some of the things you might want to know.

What are Veneers?

Veneers can be a solution to many dental issues. They are thin coverings that are bonded over teeth to hide blemishes or damage. Here at Saving Faces, we provide porcelain veneers, giving teeth a strong protective covering comparable to enamel.

Age and Veneers?

Veneers can be a solution to misaligned teeth and gaps between teeth. They can also address problems with stained or chipped teeth. There is no veneers age limit. But how old is too old to get veneers? We normally recommend this procedure for adults with healthy teeth and gums and as such, there is no actual age which is ‘too old’ for veneers. Our decision to recommend veneers is always based upon the condition of your teeth and if veneers are the most suitable solution for you to achieve the smile you desire.

A Quick Solution

An advantage of veneers is that in as little as two visits, you can walk out of our practice with the smile you desire.

The first visit involves taking measurements of the teeth to be replaced and preparing them for bonding. The second visit involves bonding the veneers over your teeth. Just like that, your treatment is done and you will not need any recovery time.

Custom-made For You

Each veneer is sculpted for you. They are made to have the shape, colour and size you desire. The best part is that they are natural-looking. Veneers can blend with the rest of your teeth and will be hard to distinguish from your natural teeth.

Requires Little Maintenance and Care

Porcelain veneers look good and last for a long time. With proper care, they can last more than a decade. Maintaining them is pretty easy. As with natural teeth, just continue brushing them at least twice a day. Floss at least once a day and regularly visit us, your dentist.

Veneers do not change colour and are stain-resistant, so you can enjoy they sparkly whiteness for a long time.

A bit of care though, although veneers are strong, the things that can chip our teeth can chip veneers as well. So please, do not open bottles with your teeth or chew on anything that is not food. People have also chipped their natural teeth from chewing ice, and hard sweets so best to avoid this.

Be Your Own Celebrity

Veneers are no longer for Hollywood celebrities alone. You can ask for veneers from our practice and have the smile you have always dreamt of. With your new smile and your newfound confidence, you can take opportunities from which you may have ran away from in the past.
