Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment and one that has been greatly improved in recent years thanks to innovations in the materials used and in the treatment itself. This means that less intervention is now required and that the finish is more natural looking than ever. For example, veneers are often made of porcelain which can not only mimic the shade of the tooth, but even has the same light-reflecting properties as a natural tooth.
Veneers can be used in a variety of different situations and are often used to help address small cracks, chips and gaps in the mouth. We can use them to help with an overlapping smile, as well as to help address the discolouration and dullness that can occur due to ageing. Our team here at Wimbledon Dental Wellness are passionate about helping to create the smile our patients really want and have experience and skill when it comes to applying veneers.
This treatment usually takes just two appointments – at the first we will take a scan of the mouth and begin preparation of the teeth being treated. This normally involves the removal of a very small amount of tooth enamel, so that we can then easily apply the custom-made veneers. The veneers themselves will be made for you at a dental laboratory by highly trained technicians. Once they are ready, you will return to us here where we will fit the veneers for you, leaving you with a more even, brighter and more confident smile.
Veneers are most commonly made in porcelain or composite.
