Natural looking veneers are an effective way to cover up cracks and chips in your teeth, giving you a more attractive smile and increased smile confidence.
If you’ve got cracks, or chips, in your teeth, veneers can be applied to fix them. Veneers will strengthen fractured teeth and restore your smile to its former glory. They can also cover up discolouration.
During the treatment process, the veneers, which are custom-made slivers of porcelain will be bonded to your natural, existing teeth. Once fitted, your teeth will be less susceptible to further cracking, or to more extensive damage occurring. Additionally, your smile will be more aesthetically pleasing.
Yes. As long as you take care, teeth with veneers can be brushed twice daily without incident. Veneers are very easy to manage and keep clean.
If you take good care of them, you can expect your veneers to last for up to 10 to 15 years.
Having veneers placed is a minimally invasive procedure. Your teeth may need to be shaped prior to the fitting. Local anaesthetic will be administered to ensure this procedure is painfree. We’ll make you as comfortable as possible throughout.
The type of treatment you need will depend on how damaged your teeth are. For teeth that have sustained substantial damage veneers may not be the answer. Instead a whole new cap, or crown, may need to be inserted over the remains of the original tooth. We’ll be able to advise you of the most suitable solution when you visit us for your initial consultation.
Veneers are generally applied to the visible front teeth and designed to blend into the enamel of your existing teeth as seamlessly as possible. Your teeth should look fully restored.
This is uncommon. People tend to have veneers on the teeth which are visible when they smile and talk. However, each patient is different. We’ll advise you of the most appropriate treatment for your teeth during your consultation, and make sure you understand all the options available.
Everyone’s teeth are different. We’ll work with you to ensure you get the treatment you need. Our veneers are tailor-made for you. They’ll be comfortable to wear and enhance your smile in a natural-looking way.
When you come to see us ahead of having your veneers fitted, we’ll assess the damage to your teeth. Then, we’ll be able to advise you of any preparation work that may need to be done, and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
Before having veneers fitted, there’s a good chance that our dentist will need to shave a little enamel off your tooth in order to shape it appropriately, ready to receive the veneer. The veneer will then be bonded to the tooth in such a way to look as natural as possible.
If you take care of your veneers, you’ll be able to eat crunchy foods without incident, and continue to enjoy your restored smile. Following your treatment, we’ll give you advice on how to keep your veneers clean and safe from damage.
Simply follow each step to receive a tailored recommendation from your dentist.
