Dental veneers are wafer-thin laminates of tooth-coloured material that are cemented to the front surface of teeth to drastically improve their aesthetic appearance and increase the confidence of wearers. Individuals who select the procedure are often unhappy with the natural shape of their teeth
Their teeth maybe small, chipped, stained, gappy or discoloured. These problems can all be resolved with the use of dental veneers, which could provide the perfect solution for people looking to improve their appearance and smile.
Regardless of the type of veneer chosen to achieve a smile makeover, prospective patients will be first invited to an initial consultation with their cosmetic dentist. During this initial appointment, it is vital for people to discuss exactly what they are looking to achieve through the treatment. All preparation and design work is done before any treatment commences.
Following this, impressions will be taken for a trial smile so that the patients chosen smile design can be assessed on models to ensure it is compatible with their bite.
Lumineersprovide an effective alternative to traditional porcelain veneers in a much simpler process. During this procedure, the enamel structure of the natural tooth is left wholly or most intact and the thin Lumineer substance is applied directly to the front of the outside surface of the teeth.
Alternatively, image-conscious individuals may prefer Emax veneers, which are a type of high-strength veneer that is a pressed ceramic that is custom-made by a cosmetic laboratory and bonded to the teeth with minimal tooth preparation.
Composite veneers which are also known as composite bonding is created using the same material as cosmetic white fillings, and can often be attached during just one appointment where the fixture is added directly to the tooth surface and then polished to create transformed smile.
Although this procedure is perfect for people with hectic lifestyles, the solution is not as long-term, with the composite veneers remaining in place for around three to five years, compared with the 10 year solution provided by traditional porcelain veneers.
Mac Veneersare perfect for individuals who want to create the most attractive smile possible after years of issues with the appearance of their smile. The attachments provide the aesthetics of feldspathic materials and the strength of pressed ceramic, offering a more aesthetic solution than alternative methods.
Durathin Veneersare extremely thin porcelain veneers, often measuring around 0.2 mm thick, that are custom-made to attach to the front of teeth without the need to grind or shave the natural tissue.
This procedure is perfect for people who are looking to make improvements to their smile, but may be worried about having tooth tissue removed.
