Porcelain Veneers

This is a ground breaking dental treatment, whereby a thin layer of porcelain shell is put over a particular tooth. This is a bit like how a false nail is applied to the nail. A natural color can also be used instead of the natural white of the veneer to give the desired shade you want them to be.

The benefits of this procedure are that they can transform the look of a person’s entire face and features by perfecting their teeth. They can improve color, shape and even the position of your teeth. Before I had veneers fitted I had next to no confidence and was never able to smile but this procedure has given me the confidence I needed and the perfect smile I always longed for. Another major advantage is how natural these appear, they are held in place by a very strong glue so you are still able to eat normally post treatment. The tooth needs very little preparation and the procedure is very swift.

Veneer’s can be used to fill in gaps or where a tooth has become chipped, they can be used to fully restore the tooth. Porcelain veneers are more stain resistant than any of the other materials that could be used and mimic the reflection of light just like a normal tooth. If you are embarrassed by wonky or discolored teeth, (as I was) then this could be the treatment for you. Simply ring to book a consultation and one of the friendly team will be happy to discuss your options with you further.

In order to prepare for dental work some of the shiny surface enamel may need filing first so that the veneer can be bonded to the tooth effectively. The amount of enamel removed is minimal and normally the thickness of the veneer will make the tooth up to normal size. Discomfort will be minimized by the use of a local anaesthetic so you do not feel any pain or discomfort whilst you undergo dental treatment. In order to ensure that the veneers are the ‘perfect fit’ an impression is taken of your teeth, which is then sent off to the lab to make the porcelain veneers. The color will then be matched to right shade of your teeth, or your teeth can be whitened so that your teeth appear natural and a uniform color.

You can expect to have two visits to have veneers fitted, the first is to get the molds of your teeth and the second is to have the dental treatment itself. It is very unlikely you will need any adjustments made to the veneer after they are fitted but there is a follow up appointment in order to clean your teeth and ensure that you are completely happy with your dental treatment.
