Smile and the world smiles with you, cry and you cry alone

This quote from Stanley Gordon West highlights beautifully the reason why many of our patients seek cosmetic dentistry.

The sense of well-being and happiness delivered by a wide smile is immeasurable and can be a great personal tonic if you have previously been unhappy with cosmetic aspects of your smile.

If your teeth are heavily stained, severely worn, chipped or dark in colour, veneers may be an ideal treatment for you.

Indeed, there may be a combination of these factors culminating in the decision to book a free consultation with our dentist in Glasgow.

Visit to Porcelain Technician

Porcelain veneers as the name suggests are thin facings shaped like teeth and made from ceramic porcelain.

At Appletree Dental Care they are hand made after you have met the porcelain technician to select the shades and translucency levels which will lead to the best and most appropriate match.

You may decide to have some teeth reshaped and whiter. This will be agreed between you and the dentist after you have completed the “What don’t you like about your teeth?” questionnaire.

How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?

Many people ask how can veneers last a lifetime. In terms of fabrication and fitting veneers, certain factors will enhance the life expectancy of your porcelain veneers: supporting tooth structure, quality of fit, cement bond strength, quality of porcelain.

There are other influence such as your hygiene, diet and willingness to return for regular checkups and cleaning.

These will ensure that the world smiles with you for many years to come.
