Porcelain veneers are thin layers placed on top of a tooth or teeth that are stained, chipped or misaligned. They can also be used to cover small gaps if orthodontic treatment such as braces is not appropriate.Veneers work much like a false nail, are attached with a strong bonding liquid, and are usually fitted to the front top teeth.
Veneers improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile in terms of colour, positioning and shape. They are a quick and easy way to restore confidence in the appearance of your teeth and require very little preparation work, unlike some other cosmetic dental procedures – so they're perfect if you need a fast result.
At Queens Park, Hannah is highly experienced in fitting veneers. If you opt to have them fitted, she will first take an impression of your teeth so that your veneers can be custom-made to fit your mouth and cover any imperfections. Veneers come in a range of tooth-coloured porcelains, so she will pick one that most closely matches the natural colour of your teeth. This means the veneers will look very natural and no-one will know you've had them fitted.
When your veneers are ready, they are carefully attached to your existing tooth or teeth using a strong, glue-like bonding material and you will be able to smile with confidence once more. Very little preparation of the teeth is needed, unlike other treatments such as crowns or bridges.
If you are thinking of having teeth whitening as well as having porcelain veneers or crowns you will need to have teeth whitening done first because teeth whitening systems do not work on veneers, crowns or fillings in the same way that they do on natural teeth. This will ensure that your new veneers or crowns will match the new, brighter colour of the rest of your teeth.
