Dental Veneers London – A Guide To Treatment
Small dental imperfections can have a big impact on your self-confidence. Discreet teeth veneers can often fix these minor imperfections – restoring an attractive smile and boosting your personal ‘wow’ factor!
An expert dental veneers dentist can remove a wafer-thin layer of your tooth enamel, replacing it with a perfectly-formed dental veneer. The end result is a flawless tooth that restores your bright, natural smile. The whole process, from first consultation to veneer preparation and fitting, will normally take two to three weeks.
In this expert guide, we’ll take you through a typical dental veneers consultation and treatment.
The Top 5 Dental Problems Solved With Teeth Veneers
At our King’s Cross dental clinic, London, we often recommend teeth veneers as an effective treatment for tooth damage and severe staining. Here’s a list of the top 5 dental problems that can be solved with teeth veneers:
- Broken teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Stained teeth
- Tooth gaps
Teeth veneers can be used to alter the size and shape of your teeth. This makes them ideal for correcting twisted teeth and gaps. It’s also one of the reasons why teeth veneers can often be used to repair tooth chips and breaks. Even severe staining from antibiotic or root canal treatment can be corrected with the skilful application of dental veneers.
Treatment With A Dental Veneers Dentist
A dental veneers assessment in London
Before starting any treatment, your London veneers dentist will arrange a check-up and assessment. As well as checking your general dental health, the best veneer dentists will ensure that your teeth are strong enough to bond with your new veneers. Before you say ‘yes’ to dental veneers, your dentist will clarify that teeth veneers are permanent and can’t be ‘undone’.
At this stage of your treatment, your cosmetic dentist will explain the types of dental veneers available. Porcelain veneers are the most natural-looking option. Porcelain veneers are custom made in a dental laboratory. They are crafted from a special cast or scan made by your dental veneers dentist.
Composite veneers are the more affordable option. Composite veneers can be made and fitted by a skilled dentist at most dental clinics in London and the UK. Sadly, low-cost composite veneers lack the natural gleam of porcelain.
Fitting your dental veneers
To prepare a tooth for veneer fitting, your dental veneers dentist will remove an ultra-thin layer of enamel. This creates just enough space for fitting the new cosmetic veneer. To ensure a long-lasting, secure bond, your veneers dentist will clean and condition the bonding area. A temporary veneer may be fitted while a permanent porcelain veneer is being crafted at the lab.
Before attaching a veneer, the best veneer dentists in London will offer you a smile analysis. This is a great opportunity to try-on your new veneer for look and fit. If you are happy with your bright new smile, your cosmetic dentist will bond the veneer permanently to your tooth.
The veneer bonding process is fast and painless. After painting a light sensitive resin on your tooth, your dentist will attach the dental veneer. A special ‘curing’ light is then focussed on the veneer. After a few minutes, the resin sets – creating a long-lasting durable bond.
After a little polish and clean up you’ll be ready to show-off your stunning new smile.
Caring for cosmetic dental veneers
One of the big advantages of cosmetic dental veneers is that they need no special care. To keep your veneers in ‘as-new’ condition, simply stick to your regular brushing and flossing routine.
As with your natural teeth, using a non-abrasive toothpaste will help to preserve the attractive lustre of your teeth veneers. After a routine follow-up appointment, the best veneer dentists will offer a special, non-abrasive veneer polishing service. This can be carried out during regular dental check-ups or hygiene sessions at a London clinic.
If you’ve opted for porcelain veneers, you’ll find that they are amazingly resistant to staining. As well as being strong and durable, most people find that veneers have a very natural feel. Occasionally, some veneer wearers may become a little more sensitive to hot or cold drinks. Naturally, it’s important that you don’t stress your new veneers by chewing things like fingernails, pens or ice-cubes!
