How veneers can give you the perfect smile makeover

3 May 2016

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. At Kent dental practice Staplehurst, our skilled cosmetic team enjoy nothing more than seeing a patient’s confidence transformed as their smile is transformed, with the help of a smile makeover.

How it work

Veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are custom-designed to fit your teeth and your needs perfectly. They can be used to improve the appearance of a range of conditions, from using a single veneer to cover a permanently discoloured tooth when teeth whitening is not an option, or to improve the look of a tooth that is slightly cracked, to using a full set to complete a smile makeover, correcting minor alignment and spacing issues.

They are an excellent option because very little preparatory work is required, which means your healthy tooth structure underneath each veneer will be preserved.

Kent veneers

Come into Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent for a smile makeover consultation, and a cosmetic dentist will perform a clinical examination to make sure that veneers are the best treatment to suit your needs.

To prepare your teeth for porcelain veneers, your dentist will remove a very thin amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth. This aids with the bonding process, and we always offer local anaesthetic so you can rest assured you will experience no pain or discomfort. Impressions are then taken.

Each veneer will be made to the exact same thickness as the amount of enamel removed, so the results will look entirely natural. The only exception is if we are covering a chip or crack; the veneer will be made thicker in this area to compensate.

When your veneers are ready, your dentist will first check that they fit properly and that you are completely happy, before using a strong dental adhesive to bond them in place.
