Glasgow Dentist West End,
Curious about dental veneers? Our Glasgow dentist West End discusses their advantages
By Hannah Kemp 07th May 2021
Have you tried whitening your teeth to no avail? Or, are you concerned about whitening your teeth due to sensitivity issues?
You aren’t alone! Many people report feeling that they wish their teeth looked a bit whiter and, in a similar vein, many people wish that they could resolve ongoing sensitivity issues. As you may know, many dental whitening processes involve the use of oxidising gels, which, while great at removing stains, can heighten sensitivity issues with your teeth.
Luckily, there is a simple and affordable solution to both of these issues and more; dental veneers!
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, our Glasgow dentist West End has seen first hand how beneficial veneers can be at restoring someone’s smile and can also attest to how easy they are to apply.
Made from porcelain, these versatile coverings do more than simply conceal the front of your tooth, they can offer you a myriad of other benefits too! Perfect!
So, what are some of the other advantages of having veneers fitted by our Glasgow dentist West End?
Enamel, or the surface of teeth, is quite porous and can accumulate stains from things like tea and red wine.
However, while it may sound softer, porcelain is less porous as is naturally stain resistant. Once our Glasgow dentist West End has fitted veneers to your teeth, you may be surprised at how easy it is to maintain that gorgeous smile!
Designed originally as a cosmetic procedure, dental veneers offer a range of aesthetic benefits.
They can hide staining and conceal cracks, while also closing minor gaps and helping to create a better look of symmetry in your mouth.
And, as you may have guessed, our team can even alter the shade of the porcelain, so you can have your smile made over with whiter, brighter teeth in as little as one sitting! Alternatively, they can also be matched to blend with your natural teeth; the choice is yours!
Oral sensitivity is caused by microscopic holes in the enamel allowing air and stimuli to hit the tooth nerve, causing discomfort.
So, with the placing of a porcelain veneer, these holes are covered and this can actually reduce or eliminate sensitivity altogether!
We have already mentioned how porcelain is less porous and can be used for aesthetic benefit, but did you know that veneers can also be used to strengthen damaged teeth?
If you have had a crown, root canal or have suffered from an extensive chip or crack in your teeth, a veneer can be used to support or restore the tooth.
So, if you want to boost the strength of one of your teeth, talk to our team about your suitability for dental veneers.
And finally, a key benefit of dental veneers is that while they are versatile and amazing pieces of dental technology, they are easy to fit and can be completed in one session.
With no drills or pain relief, they are a tough treatment to beat practically!
