Dental veneers are wafer-thin, tooth coloured laminates that are cemented to the front surface of a tooth. Veneers drastically improve the appearance of a smile.
Individuals who select the procedure often have stained or discoloured teeth caused by the consumption of coloured food and drink such as coffee and red wine. Or, alternatively, have sustained damage to their teeth, or are unhappy with their natural shape. Gaps and spaces between the pearly whites can also be resolved.
The first step of the process is to attend a consultation with one of our expert cosmetic dentists. During this initial appointment, it is vital for people to discuss exactly what they are looking to achieve through the treatment. Following this, impressions will be taken for a trial smile so that the patient’s chosen smile design can be assessed. This is the case for all our veneer options.
Lumineers provide an effective alternative to traditional porcelain veneers in a much simpler process. Many people prefer this type of veneer as the natural teeth remain relatively untouched.
Alternatively, image-conscious individuals may prefer Emax. Emax Veneers are made from high-strength pressed ceramic that is custom-made by a cosmetic laboratory.
Composite veneers, also known as composite bonding, are created using the same material as cosmetic white fillings and could be completed in just one appointment.
The solution is not as long-term, however, because the composite material will only last between three to five years, compared with the 10-year solution provided by traditional porcelain options.
Mac are perfect for individuals who want to create the most attractive smile possible. The attachments provide the aesthetics of feldspathic materials and the strength of pressed ceramic, offering a more attractive solution than alternative methods.
Durathin are extremely thin laminates, often measuring around 0.2 mm thick. They are custom-made to attach to the front of teeth without the need to grind or shave the natural tissue. This option is very natural looking.
