Porcelain veneers are a fast and popular way for your dentist to create a beautiful smile makeover. Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent can use a single veneer to cover one problematic tooth, or a full set to produce a whole new smile.
Veneers are individually-crafted, micro-thin shells of porcelain that are placed over the front surfaces of the front teeth to hide a multitude of problems. A strong dental bonding agent is used to hold them in place, and with regular visits to our Kent dental practice for check-ups combined with excellent hygiene at home, they could last you ten years or more.
At Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent, placing veneers involves a three-step process. These steps are:
During the consultation phase, your Kent dentist will ensure that veneers are the most appropriate solution to your tooth problems, and will take measurements, impressions, and photographs of your teeth so that your veneers can be made up.
Preparation of your teeth is very slight. A very thin amount of tooth enamel will be removed to help with the bonding process. You will be offered local anaesthetic for this procedure, although many patients find that they don’t need it.
Each veneer will be made to the exact same thickness as the amount of enamel removed, so they will both look and feel entirely natural.
Once your veneers have been created you will be called back to our Kent clinic to have them fitted. Your dentist will ensure you are completely happy with the fit, feel, and appearance of them before they are bonded into place.
Veneer treatment is one of the quickest treatments in cosmetic dentistry, and unlike some other procedures it does not require surgery, nor any form of invasive treatment.
Veneers can be used to hide a wide range of aesthetic problems, including:
