Veneers are hand crafted, thin yet strong tooth coloured layer of restorative material bonded over the tooth. They are used to cover the front surface of the tooth in order to rectify many defects and irregularities whilst improving the aesthetic look of the teeth or protect damaged tooth.
These are custom made in a lab and help improve the appearance of your smile in a short period of time. On average we do 4-10 veneers on the front teeth and offer whitening treatment on the rest so that your whole smile is enhanced without having the need to veneer every tooth. However, the number of veneers required also depends on the tooth factors and what the patient wants
Veneers can help to treat following dental issues : / when do we need veneers ?
In your initial consultation the dentist will listen to your concerns and understand your dental requirements. We will examine your condition and will advise on what could be done and what are the best possible treatment options for you.
We will start by selecting the colour and taking a mould or digital scan of your teeth. Your teeth are prepared to receive veneers i.e we shape the enamel on the front surfaces of the teeth. If required your gums and teeth might need some work before starting the veneer treatment.
Veneers are created from the mould or digital scan of your teeth that is then sent to a professional dental laboratory where each veneer is custom-made by hand for your individual smile. We then check the look and fit and ensure you are happy with the new smile. Once satisfied the dentist will fit these veneers to your natural teeth giving you the beautiful smile.
Mostly the process requires 2 pain free dental visits lasting 60- 90 mins on average to complete the treatment. We use the latest modern techniques and endeavour to make the whole process as pain-free, comfortable and relaxed as possible. You will be able to get back to work pretty much straight away!
