Versatile Veneers At Blue Sky Dental in Chelmsford
Porcelain dental veneers can be used to resolve a number of aesthetic dental problems.
At Blue Sky Dental, we see a lot of patients from the Chelmsford area who come to us, unhappy with the way that their teeth look or work. Some may need very specific treatment such as a dental implants to replace lost tooth function, whilst others have otherwise sound but poor looking teeth.
For the latter, one of the more common treatments we offer is dental veneers and these can be used to correct a number of issues. Let’s take a look at these below.
Whilst our teeth whitening procedure offers a great opportunity for most patients to improve the colour of their teeth, this is not always the case. In instances where the teeth have become very badly stained, for example, those of a heavy smoker, a whitening procedure may improve them, but not to the degree that the patient would wish for.
Dental veneers offer an excellent means of correcting this problem for such patients. Instead of attempting to whiten the very badly stained enamel, porcelain veneers are used to replace it on the front surface of the teeth. This is a relatively minor invasive dental procedure which should cause minimal discomfort and offers the patient the opportunity to have great looking teeth for many years to come.
Cracked or chipped teeth
Used in a similar manner to above, veneers can be used to replace the damaged front surface of a tooth where it is chipped, or where cracks are highly visible. No amount of whitening will correct this, and may only serve to make them more visible. Dental veneers, on the other hand, offer a natural and attractive looking alternative and can restore a great smile.
Used as an alternative to orthodontic treatment (braces)
One of our wide range of orthodontic systems is generally used in cases where teeth are crooked or uneven, but there are occasions where only minor correction is needed and where dental veneers can be used instead. One of the more popular instances where veneers are used for this purpose is in the case of a minor diastema, i.e. where there is a gap between the front teeth. Where a significant gap is visible, this may still require a dental brace, but, for minor cases, this may be correctable through the use of veneers.
