Dental veneers or dental laminates are thin tooth shells that are used to cover teeth imperfections such as discoloration and chips. Aside from that, it also conceals too much gum exposure which results in gummy smiles and small teeth. The great thing about teeth laminates is that they appear ideally healthy and bright making its user look more radiant.
There are various materials used for teeth veneers. At Wortley Road Dental, we commonly recommend the porcelain and composite materials due to their durability and appearance. Both materials mimic the natural colour of a tooth and even its shape. However, porcelain veneers are more resistant to food stains and are easily maintained.
Dental veneers application process
Another amazing quality of dental veneers is the fact that it preserves most of the tooth structure. This makes this option one of the most efficient among all cosmetic dentistry treatments. Some dental procedures require the teeth to be reshaped in great amounts. On the other hand, applying veneers requires almost no preparation or little contouring of the tooth.
Prior to applying the laminates, our London dentist will clean your teeth and choose the right shade of the material to match your natural teeth. After this, we will take an impression of your teeth and send the information to the dental laboratory where your dental veneers will be customized. For the next few weeks, until we receive the finished product, we will have you wear temporary veneers.
Your next appointment then involves removing the temporary laminates, rinsing your teeth with water and pumice, applying a bonding agent, and finally cementing your permanent veneers in place. At Wortley Road Dental, we can help you achieve a more beautiful smile with brighter and whiter teeth. Call or email us today for further details and to schedule an appointment for dental veneers.
