Many in Birmingham would agree that nowhere is pearly white teeth (and an irresistible smile to complete the effect) aplenty than in Birmingham itself, home of the British industrial revolution, heavy metal music (think Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Judas Priest), and the United Kingdom’s biggest universities. As a melting pot of people and events, Birmingham is also home to a large number of dental clinics catering to one of the most sought-after dental cosmetic procedures: porcelain veneers.
Veneers in the City
Porcelain dental veneers in Birmingham provide a distinct improvement in the appearance of the teeth and overall appearance. It is the procedure of choice for those who want to alter their teeth colour, shape and size without resorting to painful teeth extraction and extreme implants. It is also a recommended procedure to fix simple cases like overlaps, small gaps and twists.
The treatment consists of creating porcelain shells bonded to the front of the teeth that are of the same colour grade and shape as that of the patient’s natural teeth.
Applying the veneer entails removing a tiny portion of the tooth enamel to create room to fit the veneer and restore normal tooth function while improving its strength and appearance. Here are some of the benefits of having porcelain veneers.
1. Teeth appear straighter instantly.
2. Fix worn or chipped teeth to their original shape.
3. Whitens the teeth and follows your natural teeth colour.
4. Maintains teeth whiteness as the veneers resist discolouration from tea, coffee and smoking.
5. Simple maintenance that requires dental care as you would your natural teeth like brushing with gentle toothpaste and flossing.
The fee is often on a per tooth basis depending on the number of teeth and the grade of porcelain to be used. Dental insurance shoulders part of the cost while some plans offer full coverage. Consult your dental health provider to get the best oral health care you need.
