The Perfect Treatment For Beautiful Smiles!
How Veneers Work
A veneer is an extremely thin, high quality shell of porcelain or ceramic manufactured to fit the shape of a tooth. A veneer is designed to transform the look of a tooth and can be used to deal with a wide range of common dental issues. Most often, we use veneers to transform the front teeth as they sit at the centre of your smile and the way they are designed to look depends on your individual needs and expectations. We will determine just the right treatment plan for you following a detailed consultation with our cosmetic dentist.
Your Suitability For Veneers
Veneers are the treatment we are most likely to recommend when a patient still has their teeth, but they want a total smile transformation. Veneers can amend dental issues such as:
- Chipped teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Teeth with gaps
- Stained teeth
Even if you have a healthy and happy smile, you may want veneers to get the ‘perfect’ celebrity smile. All our patients have unique reasons for wanting veneers, and we always pay attention to those reasons to ensure we create a treatment plan that gives you the results you want.
Porcelain Or Composite Veneers?
When you come to our well-equipped Derby practice for veneers you'll need to choose which material you want your veneers to be made from. The two main options for you are composite or porcelain. Both materials can create exceptional results, but there are some differences between them you should consider:
- More affordable than porcelain veneers
- The material is not as durable as porcelain
- Often quicker to make
- Often quicker to place as the material is sculpted when it has been placed on the tooth
- Treatment can mean less preparation of the teeth underneath
- The treatment is easy to reverse because the teeth underneath remain nearly completely the same as before
- The most durable material used for veneers
- Incredibly strong, stain and chip resistant
- Able to last well over 10 years
- Considered by many the most natural looking choice
- Porcelain veneers take longer to make
- Bespoke porcelain veneers are more polished and detailed than composite veneers
Your consultation here at Darren Bywater Dental Care is an opportunity to discuss both options so that you can make an informed decision about which you would prefer.
Your veneer treatment can often be completed in as little as three visits, including your consultation. However, this will depend on the scope of treatment you are having. Whether you have one veneer or several veneers made, the process will usually proceed as follows:
Consultation And Planning
This is the first time you'll speak to us about having veneers and it is the opportunity for you to let us know exactly what you expect and what you would love your results to look like. It is also the perfect opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have, and to get all the information you need to feel confident about your treatment moving forward.
Your consultation will also involve a dental examination where your dentist will check your teeth to ensure veneers are the right option for you. We may also take some X-rays of your teeth during your appointment.
Based on a treatment plan developed from our conversations, diagnostics and from our experienced advice, you can then take the information and make a decision on whether or not you would like to go ahead with your smile transformation..
Preparing The Veneers And Your Teeth
Based on your instruction to move forward with the treatment plan we will move into the preparation phase. Following a local anaesthetic, we remove a very thin layer of enamel from your tooth to make room for the veneer. Next we use digital scanning to take impressions so that your veneers can be made using our in-house facilities. Because of our investment in CEREC milling technology, your veneers can be made and fitted during the same appointment. This is particularly convenient and will save you a lot of time by avoiding repeat visits.
Bonding Your Veneers
When your veneers have been made we will bond then to your teeth using a very strong, clinical grade adhesive. Next we trim and shape them for a perfect fit before a final polish and check for precise alignment.
In some instances we will ask you to come back for a check-up in a few weeks just to ensure that your gums are responding well to the veneers, and to check the placement is still as expected and comfortable.
