Veneer treatment is a great way to boost your confidence and get back your smile! Generally Veneers are carried out to cover up unsightly, discoloured or cracked teeth, but can also act as a way of improving the appearance of crooked teeth.
As very little drilling work is needed to prepare for a Veneer, it is a conservative option that achieves great results and doesn’t involve invasive treatment what so ever.
The treatment time is minimal and would be a two stage approach to treatment. On the first appointment we would prepare your tooth and make enough room for the veneer, and then take impressions. This then gets sent to a laboratory where your custom made Veneer is produced. The second stage is where we fit the veneer onto your prepared tooth.
Veneers are made of thin shells of ceramic that are bonded onto your teeth with a shade sensitive cement that also enables us to match the Veneered tooth to you other teeth.
As the treatment for a Veneer is so minimal, it generally doesn’t hurt, but we use local anaesthesia to numb the area for any potential discomfort.
Most people are suitable for this type of treatment but we would always advise you if there was a more beneficial treatment option. We pride ourselves on giving informative and concise treatment options so that you can make an informed decision.
The aftercare of a Veneer is important alike any restoration you have, and we will show you how to clean around your veneer at home so that you can keep your teeth looking their absolute best.
