What Are Veneers?
Porcelain veneers in our Epping clinic are more resistant to staining than resin veneers and are usually more effective at reflecting light in a way similar to your natural teeth.
What Are Veneers Used For?
Veneers may be recommended:
● To improve the colour of teeth that have been stained by medication, root canal treatment, large fillings or other causes.
● To improve the appearance of worn-down teeth
● To improve chipped, broken or cracked teeth.
● To improve uneven, irregular or misaligned teeth
● To improve teeth that have big gaps between them
What Can You Expect When You Have Veneers Fitted?
A veneer procedure usually includes at least three visits to the dentist. Your first visit will be a consultation and discussion about your treatment plan, and the two subsequent visits will be for your treatments.
Your first consultation and treatment planning
During your first appointment you should explain to your dentist what you hope to achieve. Your dentist will decide whether veneers are the best course of treatment with you, and what you can expect. X-rays of your teeth might be needed.
Your follow up visits
Making the veneer
Next your dentist will take impressions of your teeth. This model will be sent off to the laboratory that will create your veneers. After a few days you will probably be called back to have them placed.
Placing the veneer
Before the veneer is bonded permanently to the surface of your teeth, your dentist will check what it looks like to assess the fit and colour. It will probably need to be adjusted a few times to get the best fit with the cement that will be used.
Afterwards your dentist will remove any extra cement and check your bite. Your dentist may ask to see you after a few weeks, to check how you have adapted.
