What are veneers?Porcelain veneers are very thin shells made from porcelain and are placed on top of your natural teeth in order to create a beautiful aesthetic. Veneers are laminated with a glossy finish and are trimmed and shaped to fit the teeth perfectly and create the smile of your dreams. Veneers are not a standard size or shade and you can choose the ones that best suit your face shape and your idea of the perfect smile. With veneers, we are able to offer a solution to problems such as staining and chips, as well as giving the smile sparkle and radiance. Veneers can also be an alternative to orthodontic treatment for patients who have gaps between their teeth although they merely hide the gaps, rather than physically moving the teeth.
How are veneers fitted?Veneers are fixed onto the teeth using dental adhesive. This procedure isn’t painful and it doesn’t take long. Before the veneers are fitted, the planning stage takes place and this involves drawing up designs and sharing ideas about the look of the new smile and also preparing the moulds for the veneers. Before the moulds are created, the teeth are buffed and shaped to make room for the veneers to ensure a natural looking result. When the veneers have been crafted, you dentist will place them on your teeth to check that you are happy with them before securing them firmly.
About porcelain veneersPorcelain veneers are extremely thin and lightweight tooth-shaped shells. They are placed on top of your natural tooth surface to produce a brand new, beautiful aesthetic. Veneers can be used individually or as a full set and they are a popular choice for people who wish to treat issues such as staining or chipped teeth, as well as those who long for a flawless smile. Porcelain veneers are very thin, often thinner than a contact lens, and they have incredible benefits for the look of the smile. Treatment usually involves two to three sessions that take place over two or three weeks.
Veneer treatment at Clifton Dental StudioBefore you start treatment, we invite you to come to an informal consultation so that we can chat to you about the aspects of your smile you want to improve and talk you through the treatment process for veneer treatment. We will also have a good look at your teeth and chat through some ideas to see which kinds of smiles you like and the kind of results you would hope to achieve once treatment is complete. We really want you to be as open and honest as possible so we can make sure we work towards making your dreams come true, so please ask any questions and feel free to bring in photographs and pictures of smiles you like. Once you have chosen to go ahead with treatment, our expert dentists will then set about planning your treatment in meticulous detail to ensure the best possible outcome. They will draw up your personalised treatment plan and then create the impressions for your bespoke veneers. This will be done once your teeth have been prepared. The preparation process involves etching away a very fine layer of the tooth surface. We send the impressions away and then await the arrival of your brand new veneers. At the second appointment, we bond the veneers onto your teeth and fix them securely so you can start enjoying your radiant new smile. To find out more or book a consultation, give us a call today!
- Beautiful aesthetics: the main reason most people choose to have veneers is to enjoy a beautiful smile. Veneers are designed to look like bright, perfectly shaped natural teeth and they are guaranteed to make even the most unsightly set of teeth look stunning. When you’ve got a gorgeous smile, you’ll also be more likely to feel confident showing it off.
- Easy process: the process for veneer treatment is very simple and there is minimal discomfort involved. Treatment usually takes place over 2 sessions. The first session is designed to plan treatment and prepare the teeth and the second session is used to fit the veneers. Preparing the teeth involves removing an ultra-thin layer of the tooth surface. The aim is to make room for the new veneers. Your new veneers are created based on impressions of the teeth to ensure a perfect fit. Once they are ready, the veneers are then fixed onto the surface of the teeth to create your new smile.
- Solution for cosmetic imperfections: veneers are known for creating celebrity smiles, but they also offer a solution for imperfections, including chipped and uneven teeth, gaps between the teeth and worn and misshapen edges.
- Timeless looks: veneers should last for many years, meaning that your smile will look timeless and beautiful for years to come.
