An increasingly popular procedure, veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made laminates that are fixed directly to the teeth.
They are a great option for closing gaps, straightening crowding or disguising discoloured teeth.
More people are now aware of what cosmetic dental procedures can be undertaken and the amazing results that can be achieved. Increasing numbers of people are taking the opportunity to improve their smile.
When a smile is assessed the primary goal is to enhance it in the most natural way. The work should blend within the features of a persons face, giving an overall enhancement to the smile.
Veneers are thin (0.3mm +) ceramic facings that are bonded to the teeth. When done well using a skilled ceramic technician they are an excellent way of enhancing the appearance of teeth. Every patient we see who has veneers will have the case diagnosed and carefully planned using techniques such as a customised wax up, digital cosmetic imaging and direct composite placement. Once the patient is happy to proceed we will use preparation guides to carefully shape the teeth and make impressions ready for the technician to work his artistic magic.
The success of veneers depends on planning, use of an excellent technician and meticulous bonding. If done well they should make the teeth stronger and can last for up to 15 years.
