If you struggle with teeth that are misaligned, chipped, stained, or otherwise not quite as perfect as you would like, veneers are an excellent treatment option for you to consider. The Dental Team offer veneers as a cosmetic dentistry treatment which can completely transform the look of your smile.
They look completely like natural teeth, require no major invasive surgery, and they can be made to your individual specifications. They are usually the treatment of choice when we are providing a 'Smile Makeover' service and are particularly popular with celebrities, although now much more accessible for all!
What Is A Veneer?
A veneer is a sheet thin piece of porcelain that is coloured like teeth (to your shade specification) that is attached to a prepared tooth. The veneers shape is tailored precisely for your needs and they can be longer, wider or closer together depending on the look you want to achieve. We can also place one veneer, rather than a whole set, if you have one discoloured or chipped tooth which needs correcting. We can match the single veneer to your surrounding teeth so you won't be able to tell it apart, giving a very natural looking result.
Why Have Veneers?
Veneers can help to completely transform a smile, in nearly any way you want them to. They can make the shape, shade and position of your teeth much more aesthetically pleasing, creating a more 'perfect' smile. Veneers cover the entire tooth and can sometimes be used to close gaps if braces are not suitable or preferred. Veneers can even be used to 'straighten' misaligned teeth visually and hence are sometimes called “instant orthodontics”.
Some enamel may need to be removed from your teeth in order to seat the veneers correctly and firmly. It is a small amount of enamel we remove, but it is still a permanent change that is fully explained to you before the treatment plan is agreed. The treatment requires several stages, including a detailed consultation where you can ask as many questions as you need.
After preparing the teeth we will take moulds to allow our laboratory to design the perfect veneers for you, and adjust those designs accordingly to ensure you are completely happy. In certain cases, where appropriate, we may also fit temporary veneers whilst the final versions are being manufactured.
The final veneers will not be fixed until you are completely satisfied; indeed your satisfaction is our main priority and we will do all we can to ensure that the final result is the perfect smile you have always dreamed of!
