Veneers: what are they all about?

Porcelain veneers in Kent are wafer thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to your natural tooth enamel. It is the material of choice at Staplehurst Dental for those looking to enhance the look of their teeth by altering the size, shape and/or colour of their teeth.

We take the time to put together a realistic mock up so you can get a better idea of how veneers will work for you.

Preparation of your teeth

To apply a porcelain veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed. This is usually less than a millimeter. This is essential as it creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth and seamlessly line up with the rest of your teeth. This also allows an accurate restoration of the natural tooth function.

The fitting of your veneer

The bond between your natural tooth and the veneer is critical, as it not only provides the aesthetic look desired, but also a strong attachment that is essential for proper function of your veneers Light-sensitive resin is placed between the your tooth and the veneer. This is then hardened using a special light, cementing the veneer securely to your natural tooth. A final clean and polish will leave you with a brand new look for your teeth.
