Porcelain Veneers in Liverpool
Porcelain veneers are a natural and long-lasting way to restore the appearance and function of damaged, decayed or imperfect teeth.
At Kamran Rasul, we’re experts in using porcelain veneers to create beautiful smiles.
This treatment is a long-lasting, durable alternative to composite veneers that involves covering your teeth with a thin layer of porcelain to transform their shape, size, colour and symmetry.
We’ll file your natural teeth slightly to fit your veneer cover and take some impressions. You’ll receive temporary veneers in the interim before we attach your permanent set using adhesive glue. Like porcelain crowns, your new, perfect smile could last for up to 15 years.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that cover the front surface of teeth to improve the appearance of teeth, enhancing your smile. They fix a variety of cosmetic dental issues such as misalignment, irregularly shaped teeth, chipped teeth, gaps between teeth and discolour teeth. These veneers are known for their strength and durability. They are smile-transforming wonders.
Benefits of porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers provide a natural appearance and are highly stain-resistant to ensure a long-lasting white smile. They can transform smiles by covering chips, cracks, and discoloured teeth.
Veneers can be used to improve the shape of teeth, which helps to improve the overall appearance of teeth while fixing misalignment issues and gaps. They last between 10 – 15 years so they are a long-term solution.
How are porcelain veneers fitted?
Fitting porcelain veneers typically requires two to three visits. During the first visit, the dentist removes a small amount of enamel to make room for the veneers. Then, impressions of your teeth are taken, which serve as a model for crafting the custom veneers. Once the veneers are ready, the dentist will adjust the fit and shade before bonding them permanently to the teeth, instantly transforming your smile.
Who are porcelain veneers suitable for?
Ideal candidates should have healthy teeth and gums, and sufficient enamel to support the veneer. If you suffer from gum disease or other dental issues, you may not be a suitable candidate for veneers. Book a consultation with our expert dentists to discover your options.
How do you care for porcelain veneers?
Caring for porcelain veneers is straightforward: maintain good oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing. Non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste is recommended to preserve the veneers' polish and integrity. Although veneers are stain-resistant, it's wise to limit stain-inducing foods and beverages. Regular dental check-ups are important for ensuring the longevity of your veneers. With proper care, porcelain veneers can brighten your smile for more than a decade.
