It can be hard work to keep your smile looking perfect, can’t it? We might all dream of having a Hollywood grin, but these stars have an army of beauticians and personal assistants on hand to keep them looking great. All we have in our arsenal is fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash.
Teeth whitening treatments are now widely available, but even they will only work so well on badly stained teeth; and they can’t do anything to fix that small gap or correct that crooked bit. So that’s where porcelain veneers come in.
You can be measured for a set of veneers that will be cemented to the front of your natural teeth to create a brand new smile. These are becoming a really popular way of fixing crooked or stained teeth quickly and effectively – but not necessarily cheaply. Even the best smiles in the land are rumoured to have been created with veneers, with gossip columnists suggesting that the royal bride Kate Middleton recently had porcelain veneers fitted ahead of her spring wedding.
While the veneers will be cleaner and brighter than your natural teeth, and will cover up any blemishes or imperfections, you shouldn’t get brilliant white veneers, as these will just look fake. I’m sure you can all think of someone from the gossip magazine who has one of those dazzling smiles, which just don’t look quite right…
After all the aim is to have a beautiful, clean, straight natural smile. Dentists will work hard to make sure no-one will be able to tell you’ve had veneers fitted, filing down the edge of your natural teeth to make room for the additions and giving you tips on how to keep your veneers in good condition. If you’re someone who upholds good oral hygiene your veneers can last up to ten years, when you will then need a new set made; veneers can become damaged and stained just like ordinary teeth.
