Veneers

At Blue Sky Dentistry, Northern Ireland, cosmetic dentistry is our specialism. You are in safe hands when you choose us for your veneers procedure.

porcelain-veneers-in-belfastPorcelain veneers consist of a compilation of several thin ceramic layers (like that of a false finger nail), which then replace the original tooth enamel, and an adhesive layer. To apply a veneer, a small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed. This is usually less than a millimeter, which is essential for creating room for the porcelain veneer to fit your mouth. Blue Sky Dentistry veneers are the most accurate way to restore natural tooth function, while creating a better appearance than the original teeth.

The bond with your teeth and the porcelain veneer is critical. It not only provides the aesthetic perfection desired, but also a strong bond, which is essential for your veneers to function successfully. A layer of resin is then placed between the original teeth and the veneer, then hardened using a special light.

The benefits of veneers, for your cosmetic dentistry in Northern Ireland

Veneers are designed to hide imperfections with your teeth that can be difficult to correct:from dark stains to gaps between teeth. Because of this the overall look of your smile is enhanced. This alone can encourage a confidence boost, to do things you may have been afraid in the past, due to an unattractive smile.

Veneers as part of cosmetic dentistry in Northern Ireland also have more advantages. They look very natural: porcelain veneers from Blue Sky Dentistry, are customized to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile, from size to shape to color, to achieve the smile you have always wanted.

In addition to hiding imperfections, Blue Sky Dentistry veneers can strengthen and protect vulnerable teeth that have chips or cracks. This is possible due to the durable, ceramic material that composes a veneer as it covers your natural tooth, therefore providing extra strength and durability to your teeth.

Considering we live in a world of Instagram, Facebook, and selfies, this may seem surprising. But if you don’t feel comfortable about smiling for pictures, the chances are you are not the only one among your family or friends who feels this way.

How cosmetic dentistry can help

Cosmetic dentistry is all about finding the perfect smile for you. At our Northern Ireland dental practice we appreciate that the “perfect smile” will mean different things to different people. The ideal treatment for your brother, wife, or best friend won’t necessarily provide the results you are looking for. Therefore, your Northern Ireland cosmetic dentist will listen carefully to what your desired outcomes of any treatments are, and will conduct a thorough clinical examination.

Blue Sky Dentistry in Northern Ireland has a large cosmetic dentistry menu. Whilst some of the treatments, such as teeth straightening with discreet braces, may take a few months to complete, many of the procedures are finished a lot more quickly than you think.

Some of the faster cosmetic dentistry options at our Northern Ireland clinic include:

Teeth whitening

The most famous and popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry, when carried out by a dentist this is a safe and effective way to remove stains from the teeth. You can choose home whitening or have a single power whitening session in our Northern Ireland dental practice.

Porcelain veneers

In just two or three appointments, you could enjoy a complete smile makeover using porcelain veneers. These thin shells of porcelain are bonded over the front surfaces of your teeth to improve their appearance.

Cosmetic Treatments for Improving Tooth Shape

The shape of your teeth does not just affect facial appearance; it may also reveal a great deal about our age, gender and even personality. People are reshaping their teeth—and for good reason, too.

What Your Teeth Says about You

porcelain veneersOne particular study reports that rectangular teeth with rounded corners indicate youthfulness. As a person ages, the teeth develop a square shape and shorter size. In the aspect of gender, lateral incisors in females have a rounder profile at the end; males tend to have a square shape.

Interestingly, the shape of our canines signals personality. Those who have canines that are pointier and longer than lateral incisors generally have an aggressive attitude, while those that have flattened teeth are more passive. People who have small teeth are perceived to have a pushover personality.

The Matter of Changing Tooth Shape

As teeth affect facial appearance and indicate personality profiles, changing tooth shape has been a common concern of most people. Some want to achieve younger-looking smile, preferring rectangular teeth, while others want to have a more mature look, considering squarer shapes. Still, some who have strong facial features choose to have teeth with rounded corners to balance it out.

There are many treatments available for changing tooth shape. One of the most common is porcelain veneers; these are thin shells permanently applied and bonded in the surface of the teeth.

There are two materials used for this: porcelain and resin composite. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and they are effective in achieving the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin composite, on the other hand, requires removal of less of the tooth surface before placement.

Dental crowns are another treatment available to change the shape of teeth. The dentists use these caps to fully encase the visible portion of the tooth. Often, when the tooth is too small, dentists will check the gum line for reshaping. Gum contouring can help expose a larger portion of teeth to improve aesthetics.
