Do you have chipped, cracked, stained or otherwise flawed teeth? Porcelain veneers in Kent provide a more natural-looking option compared to other restorative treatments such as fillings.
Porcelain veneers are one of the many services offered at Staplehurst Dental in Kent. They are a minimally invasive treatment: like false nails for teeth. They work by covering up minor dental flaws to enhance or repair the size, shape, colour, alignment and overall appearance of your teeth.
Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped porcelain shells securely attached to the front surface of each tooth. They are frequently used to erase cracks, chips, stains, misshapen teeth and any minor dental imperfection you can imagine. Even moderate dental issues like small gaps or crooked teeth can be adjusted with porcelain veneers.
The first step to achieving a beautiful smile with veneers in Kent, is for your dentist to make an impression of your teeth. The impressions will be used as a mould for the creation of your custom-made veneers and will give your dentist the opportunity to amend any mistakes in advance.
Although veneers require your teeth to be ground down for a perfect fit, it is a minor procedure. After this part of the process, your dentist will prepare temporary veneers to protect your enamel while you are waiting for your new ones to be custom-made.
Before fitting your new veneers, the dentist will prepare your teeth with an acid gel in order for them to provide a strong base for the veneers. They are then attached to the surface of your teeth with a special tooth-coloured adhesive.
A few minutes after the veneers are set in place, your dentist will use a special light over your teeth, which will act as a sealant to set the adhesive quicker. There is no pain when having veneers fitted and no recovery time – patients can return to their daily activities immediately.
Porcelain veneers in Kent can last for many years with proper maintenance. Continue to brush and floss your teeth with soft, circular motions to keep your veneers shiny and the teeth and gums surrounding them healthy. Although cavities do not develop on porcelain, the teeth beneath your veneers are prone to decay. Visit your dentist regularly to keep on top of your oral health routine.Back to Blog
