At Simply Teeth in Essex, veneers are one option that can make a dramatic enhancement to your look, or a subtle one, depending on what you want. And it can happen quickly and with very little discomfort. It may be that you have 1 or 2 teeth that are mildly twisted or not quite in line with the rest of your teeth. It is hardly worth going through months of braces treatment to correct such tiny misalignments, when you can get them hidden behind veneers in a matter of a couple of weeks.
First things first
If you choose to have veneers in Essex as part of a combination of cosmetic dentistry treatments, then it is very important to think about the order in which you have things done. This is because you need to choose the colour of the veneers and once you have chosen it and had your veneers fitted, you cannot change the colour with teeth whitening treatments.
Veneers are made from incredibly durable porcelain that will last for over 10 years if you treat your veneers with respect and don’t go doing things like trying to open twist caps on bottles with your teeth. However, the nature of porcelain is different from that of natural tooth enamel. It is not porous in the same way and it cannot change colour when whitening gel is applied.
So, if you are thinking of having veneers in Essex as part of a smile makeover that includes whitening, you need to have the whitening first and then choose the veneer colour to match your newly whitened teeth.
