Fab Smile Veneers present some answers to frequently asked questions we are often asked about our teeth veneers products. Read on for the key things to know.
What are teeth veneers and why would I need them?
Veneers are custom-made shells which are made of tooth-coloured porcelain and are then bonded to your teeth. Veneers are a fantastic way of restoring smiles by restoring your missing, discoloured or chipped teeth to their former glory. We outline some particular benefits below.
What are the advantages of teeth veneers?
Teeth veneers have many advantages and perhaps the most obvious is in their ability to restore your smile. Due to their custom construction, you can be sure that they will match the appearance of your other teeth. Another advantage is that due to their porcelain construction, teeth veneers are extremely hard-wearing and are highly resistant to staining. Their installation is pain-free and the preparation is relatively simple.
What are the disadvantages of veneers?
Compared to the various advantages of veneers, they have relatively few disadvantages. Perhaps the most important thing to consider is that veneers are typically unsuitable for people with gums which are in poor condition. A further thing to consider is that bonded veneers typically require two visits to the dentist, where the first visit involves shaping the teeth and the final visit involves cementing the porcelain veneers to the teeth. Once the teeth have been prepared for a veneer, it is not usually possible to reverse this process as an extremely thin layer of tooth enamel has to be removed. However, veneers are simple to maintain as long as you visit your dentist for regular check-ups.
How much do veneers cost?
Nowadays, veneers are surprisingly affordable. Whilst a visit to the dentist will be required in order to obtain an accurate cost, a high-quality porcelain veneer will typically cost somewhere between £900 and £1500 per tooth.
How long do they last for and will they stain?
Tooth veneers are remarkably long-lasting and if they are designed and placed correctly by an expert dentist, you can expect them to last for well over 15 years and you do not need to care for them in any special ways, as long as you continue to visit your dentist regularly. Although high-quality porcelain veneers should never stain, you can help to maximise their life by maintaining good dental hygiene. Hopefully we have convinced you that Fab Smile teeth veneers are an excellent and affordable option, with a range of features which will restore your teeth back to their former glory.
