South East London dentist recommends porcelain veneers for restoring your smile.

18 / 07 / 2012

Over the years teeth can easily become discoloured, stained, and damaged; it becomes impossible to restore the bright white colour to your teeth. Porcelain veneers are able to give you back your white smile by placing a thin layer of porcelain over the top of your teeth. You will be left with a fresh new clean, white surface. Beyond the cosmetic appeal, veneers can offer dental benefits through the protection of your enamel.

Our modern diets often contain an excess of acid, fizzy drinks are especially bad for this. The acid can wear away the surface enamel from your teeth and reveal the delicate dentin and root. This exposure can cause serious problems as plaque and infections can build up inside the tooth creating a variety of dental problems. Many people grind their teeth together, often when asleep. The grinding can slowly wear away the enamel leading to the same issues. Porcelain veneers placed over the damaged areas can protect the teeth from further erosion and restore their appearance.

Depending on your needs, your dentist in South East London will recommend the best course of treatment. There are a number of options that may be available, porcelain veneers being just one. Many veneers are now completed with composite resin veneers, these have a couple advantages. It is comparatively easy for your dentist to apply resin and the colour can be matched fairly precisely. With porcelain the procedure is slightly longer and more complicated and the colour options are slightly more limited. But it is in endurance that porcelain veneers show their strength, and the reason dentists still continue to use them. Porcelain veneers are stronger and will last longer than other types of veneer. Although porcelain veneers are more expensive upfront, over time their endurance makes them a sound long term investment.
