A Perfect Smile, Is A Confident Smile
Dental veneers are made from custom made thin shells of porcelain or resin bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve their shape, colour or position. I often use dental veneers to;
- Fix discoloured teeth.
- Close gaps between teeth.
- Restore teeth that are worn down or chipped.
- Help align or shape uneven or irregular shaped teeth.
My philosophy is about creating an experience from the moment you walk into the practice. It starts with re-establishing confidence in your smile!
One of the first things people notice about someone is their smile, and improving this, can have lifechanging effects. My aim is to work with you, look at every aspect of your smile that you are not happy about, and create a bespoke treatment plan to bring you the perfect smile you always wanted.
It all starts with a consultation and inspiration in a relaxed atmosphere!
Dental veneers are made from porcelain or resin composite materials. I use the highest quality of dental veneers available, choosing the most aesthetically suitable for each of my patient’s teeth. Resin veneers require less tooth surface removal as they are thinner than porcelain veneers.
They can be fitted in one visit as the composite resin is fashioned to the desired shape of the tooth, and a special light is applied, which cures the resin quickly. Once complete, the tooth is polished. Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining even from cigarettes and coloured liquids.
This beautiful patient came in with an old bonding and protrused centrals. After her mini smile makeover with 4 direct composite veneers, she now smiles all the time!
This patient never smiled in photos now can't stop after having 6 veneers to transform his smile to this amazing one!
This patient hated the gaps in her teeth. I closed these gaps with 4 direct composite veneers. A beautiful smile transformation completed in just a few hours.
“Bonding has the power to change someone’s life in the space of a few hours. We use an American composite bonding technique and material that were developed to give the best results beautiful finish!”
A Precious Smile, Is A Happy Smile
To prepare your porcelain veneer, I will remove about half a millimetre of enamel from the tooth surface, which is approximately equal to the thickness of the veneer that will be added. For porcelain veneers, an impression of your tooth will be taken and sent to the dental laboratory to be manufactured. It takes approximately 1 -2 weeks to receive the veneers back from the laboratory. In some cases, a temporary veneer will be applied to your teeth until I receive the permanent veneer from the dental lab.
Once I have received the veneer, I will check that it fits correctly and matches the colour by temporarily placing it on your tooth. The veneer is then trimmed and shaped until it fits perfectly. Once the veneer is bonded, it will be cleaned and etched to ensure it’s fitted properly.
Special dental cement is then applied to your tooth, and the veneer is placed upon it. Once I have positioned the veneer properly, I will apply a special light to the dental veneer, which activates the chemicals in the dental cement causing it to harden quickly. Any excess dental cement is removed, and your bite will be accessed.
