When the tooth is structurally sound, but discoloured or mis-shapen, porcelain veneers can be made to restore and even cosmetically improve your teeth. Porcelain veneers are designed to cover the front surface of teeth. They are very thin, and with improving materials we are able to give a lovely and natural finish.
If your teeth are structurally sound, but discoloured, chipped or slightly misshapen, veneers may be the perfect solution. They require less tooth surface removal than crowns, and can disguise many problems including spacing and mild mal-alignments. The other big advantage of veneers is the speed of the treatment, you could see your new smile within weeks.
When embarking on aesthetic treatments, our dentist always creates a mock up of the intended result first. This is very important, because some changes can only really be understood when seen in 3D. If the treatment is going to be quite dramatic, you may also be asked to wear a provisional version first, to confirm the treatment choice, and also to allow any minor adjustments to be made before the final veneers are fabricated.
The teeth to be veneered are prepared under local anaesthetic. This is numbing for just the tooth or area in question. Our clinic always applies a surface numbing gel before giving the local anaesthetic injection to give almost pain free analgesia.
If you have any concerns regarding analgesia, please do let us know so that we can make the experience as anxiety free as possible.
Preparation involves trimming the surface of the teeth. Impressions are then taken, and temporary veneers fabricated. When the lab returns your final porcelain veneers, your temporaries will be removed, and the porcelain will be bonded to the tooth using porcelain bonding techniques.
Fees for veneers vary depending upon choice of material. We would encourage you to meet with our dentist for a consultation, and discussion of your particular needs and treatment costs.
