The beautifully white and even Hollywood smiles you see on the red carpet usually aren’t natural – very often they’re the result of treatment with veneers, the treatment of choice for smile makeovers because they’re an almost instant way to cover over minor dental imperfections and give you a perfect-looking smile.
Created from very thin, shell-like layers of porcelain, veneers are bonded onto the top of your existing teeth to cover up a multitude of minor dental issues such as chips, cracks, gaps, stubborn stains and teeth that are slightly crooked.
The procedure for fitting veneers is simple. Your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing an ultra-thin layer of enamel, proportionate to the thickness of each veneer. Porcelain veneers are made bespoke to fit your mouth exactly, using your dental impressions. When they’re ready, you’ll return to the dentist to have them permanently bonded into place and fine-tuned by hand. Porcelain veneers can be a long-term solution if well looked after, and they don’t stain as easily as natural teeth – so you can keep your gorgeous new smile brighter for longer.
