Get stunning results with porcelain veneers from Central London dentists

Having a winning smile is something many of us aspire to and yet this can often be blighted by cracked, chipped or stained teeth. This is not something that you have to put up with thanks to the solutions offered by dentists in the form of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are strips of porcelain which dentists can affix to the front of a tooth which you don’t like the appearance of. They are so thin that some have been affectionately dubbed ‘contact lenses for teeth’. They are effective at covering and concealing teeth which might feature a crack or a chip. They can be used for teeth which are stained but dentists are likely to recommend some sort of teeth whitening in this case. This is because sometimes a little of the existing tooth has to be removed in order to accommodate the porcelain veneer.
Thanks to modern techniques, porcelain veneers can be fitted with incredible speed. Even the busiest of schedules will likely be able to accommodate a porcelain veneer fitting which uses pioneering CEREC technology. This allows dentists to take a three dimensional image of your mouth and send it to an online milling machine. This will fabricate a porcelain veneer in just six minutes, ready to be fitted.
Your dentist can adapt the porcelain veneer so that it matches your surrounding teeth in terms of colour, texture and even translucence. The porcelain it is made from is incredibly durable and you will be able to treat it just like a normal tooth. Further to this, they are so discreet that even your closest intimates won’t know that you have a porcelain veneer. All they’ll notice is how great your smile looks.
