What are dental veneers?

What are dental veneers?

Veneers 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. They are shaped by hand (composite veneers only)and cover each individual tooth when applied. Our team believes creating veneers is a skilled artform as the shape, colour and appearance of dental veneers will be different for each patient and must be accurate.

Why choose dental veneers?

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:

Discoloured teeth – teeth can become stained for many reasons, such as genetics or smoking.
Missing teeth or gaps between the teeth– teeth could be missing due to gum disease, tooth decay or impact/injury.
Chipped or broken teeth – teeth can break for a variety of reasons. A single veneer can help to correct a chip on a tooth.

Types of dental veneers available at our Harley Street practice

Our team is proud to be able to provide both porcelain and composite veneers at our practice in Harley Street, 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. Composite veneers are made from composite resin, layers of which are directly applied to the tooth. This can then be sculpted to correct the shape and size, ensuring that they look just like natural teeth. Composite veneers are extremely versatile and durable.

How do dental veneers work? The process

A thorough dental hygiene check-up will be required before veneers can be undertaken by our specialists. Any necessary restorations, hygiene and gum disease needs to be addressed and treated before cosmetic treatment.

Porcelain Veneers

At the first appointment, the teeth are prepared. A local anaesthetic will be used. 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.

Impressions are 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. Any changes or fine adjustments can be made to the temporaries are reproduced in the final veneers. 

Approximately 2 weeks later patients are again invited to visit our talented dental veneers team in Harley Street, London. The teeth are isolated from moisture and the porcelain veneers are then fitted at the second main treatment appointment.  

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are applied a little differently. These veneers are moulded directly onto your teeth. After your teeth have been prepared for the dental veneers, a resin is applied and moulded to 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.

The benefits of dental veneers

Dental veneers come with an array of benefits. If you are looking to transform your smile in a way that is 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 choose dental veneers, 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 when they are cared for correctly. Your veneers can last a long time if you maintain a good at home hygiene routine and continue to visit our Harley Street practice twice a year for dental checkups. Your lifestyle can also have an impact but veneers that have been looked after can last between 15-20 years.

What are dental veneers made from?

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 composite veneers, offering a much whiter and brighter smile. 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 Street 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.

Cost of dental veneers

The costs of dental veneers can vary based on how many veneers are being applied.

Our dentists will discuss the pros and cons of both with you during your consultation and come up with a treatment plan that is best for you.

Veneers are usually placed over the top teeth, as these are the ones that are most obvious when you smile. Sometimes a singular veneer may be all that is needed, but it is possible to have multiple veneers applied.

No, veneers will not ruin your teeth. Sometimes it is possible to place veneers without impacting your natural teeth altogether. We always try to apply veneers in the most minimally invasive way possible. Always visit a qualified cosmetic dentist like ours in Harley Street, London, to see optimum results.
