Is a crooked or discoloured tooth letting your smile down? Veneers are just what you need to enhance your smile and restore your confidence.
A veneer is a thin tooth-coloured shell fixed to the front of a tooth to mask discolouration, an irregular shape, damage or small gaps. They are usually fitted to the front upper and lower teeth and are made from ceramic, porcelain or a composite material. They can be used to enhance your smile and help to protect an affected tooth from further damage.
Many people choose to have veneers because of how little preparation is needed. We only need to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the veneer.
We first remove a thin layer of enamel from the surface of the tooth to accommodate the veneer. We use local anaesthetic to reduce any discomfort. We take impressions of the teeth which are used to create a wax model. The dental lab uses the wax model to create the veneers.
When we receive the finished veneers, we invite you back for the fitting. We make sure you are happy with the fit and look before fixing them to the tooth with a dental adhesive.
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 teeth and gums.
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.
