Dental Veneers in Camden, North London
Veneers are a custom made thin layer of porcelain which covers the front of your tooth to make your smile perfect. The appearance and strength of veneers rivals that of natural teeth and these are widely used cosmetically to enhance the smile. They help to mask gaps, cover chipped, discoloured, crowded or protruding teeth. The veneer fits right over the front surface of the tooth to give you that beautiful lovely sparkling smile, similar to way false fingernails cover your nail. Many celebrities have them fitted such as Cheryl Fernandez-Versini , Tulisa, Miley Cyrus and Katie Price. NW1 Dental Care are pleased to offer dental veneers in Camden, North London.

Veneer procedure usually requires two appointments. Little or no anaesthesia is needed. Teeth preparation involves the dentist removing about half a millimetre of enamel from the front of the tooth surface, which will roughly be the same amount of thickness of the veneer fitted. An impression is taken and shade is chosen to match the required shade.
On the second appointment the teeth are cleaned, polished and etched to create a strong bond. Bonding cement is applied to the veneer, which is then placed onto your tooth. Once the veneer is correctly positioned a special blue light is applied to the veneer. This light activates the chemicals in the cement causing it to harden. Any excess cement is removed, your bite is evaluated and final adjustments are made accordingly.
