Dental veneers can dramatically enhance the appearance of your teeth. They are very durable, they won’t stain, and they offer a very natural-looking solution. Treatment with veneers is very straightforward, and great results can be achieved in a short period of time.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain which are bonded to the front of teeth. They are used to restore and improve the look of teeth which are uneven, chipped or discoloured whilst fitting in with the aesthetics of your natural teeth.
As well as protecting and improving the shape of your teeth, veneers can also give you a brighter, whiter smile. From the range of shades available, you can select the look that you want.
The treatment for dental veneers generally requires little to no anaesthesia. Your dentist will start by regularising the surface enamel of the teeth that will receive the veneers.
Impressions of the teeth are then taken, from which the porcelain veneers will be custom-made in the lab.
During your next visit, your dentist will check the shape and appearance of the new veneers before bonding them into place over your existing teeth. Finishing and polishing may be required to complete the treatment.
After fitting, it is important to keep your veneer well-maintained with regular brushing and flossing. Your dentist and hygienist will show you how to keep on top of your dental hygiene and keep a close eye on the health of your veneers.
Although veneers are resilient, it is important to treat them with care, so try not to bite your fingernails or chew pen tops or use your teeth to open anything. Also, it is probably best to steer clear of very hard foods that could cause damage to the veneer.
