A combination of lifestyle and personal factors can result in teeth with blemishes, faults and discolouration. Veneers are a thin, coloured porcelain shell, which are carefully crafted to bond and cover the front of damaged teeth.
They are ideal for chipped, slightly misaligned, misshapen or discoloured teeth. Usually the treatment can be done over two or three visits to Dental on Martyn.
Bonding can be useful to improve small irregularities and involves the application of a resin to the tooth.
The resin is hardened using a special light. The resin is then trimmed and polished. Be mindful that it is normal to experience some sensitivity in the treated tooth.
Teeth can become discoloured for a number of reasons. Diet, smoking and certain drinks such as tea, coffee and cola can lead to the staining of teeth.
Dental on Martyn provides teeth whitening procedures, such as bleaching, to whiten your teeth.
Bleaching is ideal for teeth that are stained yellow, brown or orange but does not work so well on teeth that appear grey, because this is usually a thinning of the tooth itself from wear and tear.
