Dental veneers are deceptively brilliant these days.
If your smile is damaged or discoloured, there’s a remedy just waiting for you. Here’s what it is.
We have to admit that we’re not like other people. But maybe you knew that already, if you’re a regular reader of our humble blogs.
The main reason we’re different to normal people is that we simply can’t go through a single day without being constantly reminded of all things dental.
Of late, this has manifested itself in a new game we’ve started playing with ourselves. It’s called ‘Veneers or not veneers”, and as the name might suggest, it involves us examining the smiles that we come up against each day and providing an unasked for professional opinion as to they are ‘natural’ or have had work done to them.
Not too long ago, this would have been a very easy game to play, as there was a noticeable difference between dental veneers and natural teeth. These days, however, the quality of materials and the level of workmanship are so amazing that it's no longer so easy to spot the difference.
And with the cost of veneers dropping so much in recent years, you’d be surprised at how many of your friends or family are wearing veneers these days – maybe even without letting you in on their little secret?
The primary reason for the drop in prices is a greater degree of streamlining in modern dental surgeries. And here at MyDental, affordability is even less of an issue thanks to our 0% Dental Finance Plan.
It lets you spread your costs over three months, six months or nine months – and it won’t cost you a single penny in interest. It’s a great option when you have to get a relatively major piece of work done, but want some control over your cash flow.
It’s easy to see why there has been such a large number of people opting to have veneers fitted. They are genuinely transformative, and can make an enormous difference to a tooth that’s either damaged or discoloured – possibly from too much red wine, tea or tobacco. Or possibly from the normal effects of aging.
People sometimes think that there is a single type of veneer, but your dentist can actually choose from quite a wide range – depending on the particular circumstances and the location of the damaged tooth. Some of them are made from a single substance, while others are composite veneers. You don't have to worry about this, however, as your dentist will tell you your options and recommend the form of veneer that’s most appropriate for your unique set of circumstances.
One of the big attractions of veneers is that they can be coloured and shaped to such an extent that they look exactly like their surrounding teeth. This is why our daily game of ‘Veneers or not veneers’ has become so fiendishly difficult.
And another big plus point is that if you happen to be on the hunt for veneers Ireland is a great place to source your treatment. It’s home to some wonderfully talented and friendly dentists – including our guys here at MyDental – and you can be sure of a really brilliant smile after your veneers have been fitted.
