Veneers: what are they all about?

20 April 2017

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.

Three steps to a happier smile

Our porcelain veneers involve a 3-step procedure, which includes a free no obligation consultation for planning, followed by the preparation and fitting of your veneers in Kent.

We value communication. We will carefully explain your procedure for veneers in Kent, both verbally and with models, so you know what to expect. This communication allows both our dentist and you to share expectations and come to an understanding. We believe this eliminates patient dissatisfaction at the end of the procedure because everything is open and transparent from the start.

In today’s world of dental aesthetics, it is almost impossible to assess the final aesthetic result of your veneers in Kent without a mock-up, especially from our patient’s point of view. 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.

For veneers in Kent, simply call or email us today. We are waiting to transform the look of your teeth.
