National Smile Month – week 4

Porcelain dental veneers are the key to that perfect Hollywood smile

We’ve arrived at the final week of Britain’s National Smile Month and while over the past three weeks we have discussed orthodontics to straighten and improve the appearance of your teeth, how silver fillings can be replaced by more natural looking white fillings and of course the benefits (and risks) of teeth whitening, for the final week we thought that we could talk about the secret that lies behind a perfect Hollywood smile and why these days it is not just celebrities who are now opting for porcelain dental veneers.

Porcelain Dental Veneers

As we’re sure you are aware not every celebrity and Hollywood A-lister is born with a perfect smile.  They have to work on it.  Or rather their dentist has to help them achieve the look where every tooth is perfectly aligned, perfectly proportioned, perfectly symmetrical and gleaming white.  The not so secret secret is porcelain dental veneers.  Thanks to this cosmetic dentistry treatment a perfect celebrity smile is guaranteed and at Carisbrook Dental we are recognised as one of the UK’s leading specialists in this increasingly sought after procedure.

Porcelain dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom made shells of tooth coloured porcelain.  They are used to cover stained teeth that cannot be improved by teeth whitening, they can also disguise damaged teeth, cover up gaps and improve the overall look of slightly crooked teeth.  In other words we can make them so that they produce the perfect appearance and the perfect smile.

At Carisbrook we have made and fitted literally thousands of porcelain dental veneers to improve the appearance, the smile and the confidence of our patients.  The process generally involves three stages: one – a consultation, examination and x-rays; two – the preparation of the teeth and the taking of an impression from which the dental laboratory can custom make the veneers; and three – the fitting of the veneers to create that winning smile you’ve always wanted.

There is another cosmetic dentistry procedure that we also sometimes recommend for patients looking to improve their smile and that is gum contouring and teeth reshaping.  Where teeth may be slightly out of proportion, or if they are chipped or blemished we can fix these problems, generally quite quickly and simply, with a combination of gum contouring and teeth reshaping.
