Veneers

A veneer is a new surface to fit over the front of a tooth, to disguise a discoloured (rather than damaged) tooth.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

Consultation

Your teeth will be assessed by your dentist. They will improve discoloured, chipped or irregular teeth.

Treatment

Your dentist may take impressions to create study models before preparing the teeth ready to receive the veneers. A tiny amount of enamel is removed from the front surface of the tooth (usually 0.5 – 0.7mm) and the height of the tooth reduced slightly, this is pain free but may leave you with a slightly altered looking tooth.

Occasionally temporary veneers may be provided whilst the veneers are being made. The shade and colouring will be agreed with your clinician. When the veneers are ready they are checked and assessed before being bonded into place. Finally they are finished and polished.

Aftercare

When your treatment is finished your clinician will advise you on a suitable aftercare routine. This usually involves the use of floss, interdental cleaning aids and a review appointment.
