What are dental veneers?

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment, designed to enhance your smile by improving the appearance of cracked, chipped or uneven teeth. Dental veneers may also be a chosen option for those with severely discoloured teeth or to cover gaps where orthodontic treatment may not be appropriate. They are shaped by hand (composite veneers only) and cover the front surface of each individual tooth when applied. Our team believes creating veneers is a skilled artform as the shape, colour and appearance will be different for each patient and, therefore, must be accurate to ensure a natural look.

Why choose dental veneers in Harley District?

There are many dental concerns that veneers can improve the appearance of. Here are just some of the concerns that dental veneers are routinely used to fix:

Here are just some of them:

Discoloured teeth – teeth can become stained for many reasons, such as genetics, drinking tea, coffee or red wine, or smoking.
Missing teeth or gaps between the teeth– teeth could be missing due to gum disease, tooth decay or impact/injury, leaving you with a less-than-perfect smile.
Chipped or broken teeth – teeth can break for a variety of reasons. A single veneer can help to correct a chipped tooth, restoring it to its former glory.

Types of veneers available in Harley District

Our team is proud to be able to provide both porcelain veneers and composite veneers in London.

  • Porcelain veneers are specially crafted by our dental technicians to look just like natural teeth. They are a long-lasting option but can still be applied in one visit to our Harley Street practice. A small amount of your enamel will need to be removed before porcelain veneers are applied to your teeth. 
  • Composite veneers are usually applied in just one visit and are extremely versatile and durable. They are made from a thin layer of composite resin which is applied to the front teeth. This can then be sculpted to correct the shape and size, ensuring that they look just like natural teeth.

How do dental veneers work? The process

A thorough dental hygiene check-up will be required before veneers can be undertaken by our specialists. This is because any necessary restorations, hygiene and gum disease needs to be addressed and treated before cosmetic treatment at our Harley District clinic.

Porcelain Veneers in Harley District

At the first appointment, the teeth are prepared for porcelain veneers.

This process involves a minimal reduction in some critical areas of the enamel from the front surface and a biting edge to make space for the veneer.

Thanks to cutting-edge technology, cosmetic dental procedures like this are minimally invasive – but our cosmetic dentists can provide a local anaesthetic to help you relax.

Impressions are then taken and temporary veneers are made using a template made from the 3D preview model. Importantly, this gives our patients an opportunity to trial the planned smile design in their own mouths before the veneers are made at a dental laboratory. Any changes or fine adjustments can be made to the temporary veneers and reproduced in the final veneers.

Approximately 2 weeks later, patients are again invited to visit our talented dental veneers team in Harley District, London. The teeth are isolated from moisture and the final porcelain veneers are then fitted at the second main treatment appointment. Veneers can be used to improve all visual aspects of your teeth including brightness, shape and straightening preventing the need for further treatments such as Invisalign in London.

Composite Veneers in London

Veneers made from composite material are applied a little differently to porcelain veneers.

After your teeth have been prepared for the dental veneers, a resin is applied and moulded directly onto your teeth.

We also see our patients a few days later to check all is well when they’ve had some time to use them and eat with them.

Patients who undergo cosmetic dental treatments, such as porcelain or composite veneers in Harley District, may experience some soreness in their gums immediately after the procedure. But with regular brushing, this will normally ease within a few days.

The benefits of dental veneers

Both composite and porcelain veneers come with an array of benefits. If you are looking to transform your smile in a way that’s long-lasting and guaranteed to provide impressive results, dental veneers could be the right option for you.

They look natural and are durable, proving to stand the test of time. When you opt for London dental veneers with E11even Dental, you are choosing to improve your confidence too.

Dental veneers are also incredibly low maintenance and require as much care as your natural teeth would.

How long does a dental veneer last?

Veneers are incredibly durable and, with proper care, they can last anywhere between 15-20 years.

To ensure your composite or porcelain veneers last as long as possible, you must maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home – including brushing and flossing daily – and lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

On top of this, it’s crucial that you continue to visit our Harley Street district practice twice a year for dental check-ups, so our dental team can check the condition of your veneers and spot any potential problems early on.

What are dental veneers made from?

Our veneers in Harley District are made from either porcelain or composite material.

Porcelain is a type of glass, whereas composite veneers are made from a tooth-coloured resin material.

Porcelain veneers are less likely to stain than their composite counterparts, offering a much whiter and brighter smile. They’re perfect for patients seeking a permanent, natural-looking solution for hiding dental imperfections.

However, composite veneers are a minimally invasive, quick and easy way to get your dream smile – concealing cracked or chipped teeth. This veneer option is reversible, which makes it ideal for younger patients or anyone unsure about committing to porcelain veneers.

A member of our experienced team will discuss the best option for you during your consultation, keeping you in the loop the entire time.

Aftercare of dental veneers treatment

Dental veneers can, and should, be cared for just like regular teeth. You must have a good at home dental routine. Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste. You should also floss and use mouthwash twice a day, too. 

We recommend visiting our Harley District practice for regular dental checkups. Our experienced dental hygienists will be able to ensure that your veneers are maintaining good condition, offering you their advice and guidance during the aftercare of your treatment.
