Over time our teeth can chip, crack or become discoloured. As well as this problems with crowding, or gaps between teeth can impact on the smile and impression you provide. Your smile is important and with porcelain veneers from our expert cosmetic dentistry practice, we can mask these minor imperfections to revitalise your smile.
What is a veneer?
A veneer provides a new front surface for a tooth which is custom made from porcelain. Veneers are extremely versatile and can be used to align crowding or protruding teeth, close gaps or lighten tooth colour.
Making an impression
The first step in creating your porcelain veneers is taking an impression. We will prepare your teeth by removing a small portion of the enamel. This will provide space for the veneer and provide a suitable surface for bonding the veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared we will take an impression from which your veneers will be designed and fabricated. Whilst we are making your permanent veneers, temporary veneers may be placed in the interim to protect your teeth.
Once your dental restoration has been completed we will fit your new veneers. Using dental cement we will secure the veneers to your teeth and once in place, you can expect your beautiful veneers to last up to 10 years.
