Veneers are thin, natural coloured shells which are fixed onto the front surface of your tooth. They are custom-made and used to improve the overall appearance of your smile.
Commonly used in cosmetic dentistry, veneers are made from aesthetically pleasing porcelain to give patients their dream perfectly white smile and help improve their confidence. Veneers offer a minimally invasive way to enhance your smile, as the preparation of your natural tooth is confined to the enamel, with only a thin layer removed prior to fitting.
Several visits to the Dockland Dental House are needed to complete your veneers treatment. Initially, we ensure that veneer treatment is the best option for you. We examine your teeth, taking photographs and digital scans.
The next step is planning and preparation for treatment. We plan the shape and positions of your veneers, ensuring the treatment will be accurate and precise. We then prepare your teeth for the veneers.
Once your custom-made veneers are ready, you will be invited for your fitting appointment. We check the veneers look exactly right and you are completely happy before bonding them to your tooth structure using tooth coloured resin cement.
Your veneers can be easily looked after with a great oral hygiene routine at home, including regular brushing and flossing. Your dentist will be able to keep an eye on them at your regular check up appointments.
Veneers can last for many years, making them a cost effective way to achieve a brighter and straighter smile that you can be proud to show off.
