Different uses of dental veneers

  • Tooth discoloration – Habits such as smoking and drinking as well as lifestyle can give rise to discoloured teeth. A dental veneer can restore the natural colour of your teeth and improve your smile without any tooth sensitivity. If you opt for a whitening procedure, this may make your teeth more sensitive.
  • Repairing damage from bruxism – Veneers can help to protect the tooth enamel from further damage.
  • Improving teeth alignment – Other treatment options like braces can straighten crooked or misaligned teeth. Many people, however, opt for dental veneers in London as they are very comfortable and can fix dental issues such as gapped or uneven teeth.
  • Changing the shape of your teeth - If your natural teeth are short or somewhat uneven veneers, can alter the size and shape of your teeth.
  • Repairing chipped teeth – Veneers can be used to correct the problem of chipped tooth and restore the shape and size of your tooth.

How veneers work

Your dentist will use different treatment methods based on the kind of veneer to be used. The treatment will correct your tooth colour which can be done within two or three dental visits.

Certain dental problems such as misaligned and chipped teeth are more complex to fix. The dentist will make customised veneers that will adjust to the exact shape and size of your teeth.

Porcelain veneers are cost more than composite veneers because it takes more time to produce in the laboratory. Composite veneers are made by the dentist when you go to the clinic and the process requires one or two hours only to be completed. You must be aware about composite and porcelain veneers before performing any of these and your dentist will help you to get the most desired result from the treatment.

About the fitting method

The treatment for veneers starts with the visit to your dentist who will evaluate the condition of your teeth identifying any problems and gum disease that can prevent the treatment being a success. The dentist checks your teeth carefully so that veneers can be attached to the teeth. Porcelain veneers are prepared in the laboratory by a technician but composite veneers do not need to be made at the laboratory.

Fitting the porcelain veneers requires prepping of the healthy enamel so that your teeth are less prominent than usual when veneers are bonded to your teeth. The process may damage your healthy teeth and is not reversible but if done with care and skill is likely to last many years.

On the other hand, composite veneers can resolve your dental concerns without causing any kind of damage to the healthy teeth, but will last less time and need some repolishing. So, patients who want to retain natural tooth structure often choose this option. The process of prepping is not painful as there aren’t any nerves in the enamel but your dentist will administer an anaesthetic just in case.

Even although all your teeth might not have been covered by the dental veneers a dental cleaning and whitening procedure will be needed for your remaining teeth. You should follow the whitening procedure properly to maintain the colour of your surrounding teeth.

Composite veneers

The method of fitting composite veneers in London is quite simple that usually requires a single visit to your dentist. The composite material is shaped and then hardened with a unique light. These composite materials are usually prepared in the shape of your tooth and bonded to the surface of your teeth with the help of bonding agents. The colour of the composite can be chosen to match the colour of your natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers

The technician takes tooth measurements so that the porcelain veneer can be prepared to the exact shape and size. Three weeks preparation might be needed to prepare your porcelain veneers in the laboratory.

Prepping of your healthy tooth is next so that the veneers fit perfectly and temporaries may be given to protect teeth from sensitivity till the permanent veneers are made.

The dentist will fix your next appointment once the porcelain veneers have been prepared. After this, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth with dental adhesive. The process of fitting veneers may require anaesthetic.

After that there will usually not be any kind of constraint. The common things to avoid will be hard sweets, ice, caramel apples, hard rolls, hard nuts, popcorn and pumpkin seeds.

You need to talk to a prosthodontist and talk over the possible options for your teeth. If you have minor changes, then composite bonding is a suitable choice. But if your teeth are dull or broken, then porcelain veneers are the right option.

You need to brush twice a day, floss regularly and wear a mouthguard to protect your veneers.
