Before Smile Makeover
After Smile Makeover
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain, which are carefully designed, precision made and then bonded to the front and sides of a natural tooth. When used as part of a smile makeover at our Rotherham practice, near Sheffield, they can instantly straighten crooked teeth, cover discoloured teeth and make them look beautiful again, close gaps and generally create an ideal smile.
Absolutely not! One of the great things about porcelain veneers is that they are very conservative. Only a tiny amount of tooth enamel has to be removed to make room for the porcelain, literally 0.5mm in most cases. In some cases, NO tooth removal is necessary!! Porcelain veneers are becoming an incredibly popular choice for smile makeovers in Rotherham, Sheffield and all of South Yorkshire.
Porcelain veneers for our patients are made by highly-skilled Ceramists following exact instructions from Dr Stephen Ball. These instructions together with clinical photographs allow perfect colour and shape reproduction.
From a statistical average, porcelain veneers should last at least 15 years but this depends on the skill of the patient in their oral hygiene and homecare maintenance. Other factors like the condition of the tooth before treatment and whether the patient grinds their teeth at night can affect the longevity of the porcelain veneers. Regular checkups and hygiene care is important too. Following completion of your smile makeover at our Rotherham practice, near Sheffield, we can provide you with a custom maintenance plan with our hygienist in order to maintain your new smile in perfect condition.
