Transform Your Smile With Dental Veneers
There are two main types of dental veneers that we offer at Ingleby House Dental practice, Composite and Porcelain Veneers. They are both very effective solutions for cracked, broken or chipped teeth.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain placed on the front of a tooth that resembles the appearance of natural dental enamel. It covers the front surface of a tooth to conceal a variety of defects, including chipped & discoloured teeth, porcelain veneers can also be used to address mild crowding and small gaps in your teeth. A single veneer can cover one unsightly tooth or several can be used as part of a smile transformation.
What Are Composite Veneers?
Composite veneers are used in situations in which there is chipping or discolouration of natural teeth. They are also used where there are minor misalignments of teeth, to give the appearance of straighter teeth. Modern composite materials can provide a life-like, beautiful appearance that is non-destructive to the tooth structure and can last for a long time. During the composite veneers procedure, a tooth coloured filling material, which is matched with your natural tooth shade, is applied in layers to the tooth surface, and sculpted directly in your mouth to achieve the desired aesthetic.
Why Dental Veneers?
- Veneers are a less invasive alternative to getting a crown.
- Dental veneers are custom made and milled for your teeth.
- Fortify a tooth that has become weakened.
- Veneers require no extra care or maintenance
What Can You Expect With Dental Veneers Treatment?
Porcelain Veneers are created and fitted over two appointments. Your first appointment will involve your dentist preparing your tooth for the veneer, carefully removing a very small amount of tooth enamel to accommodate the veneer once it is ready to be fitted. We will also take digital scans of your teeth to use as a basis for the design of your veneers. We will invite you back to the practice once the veneers are ready to have them bonded to the teeth and to make any necessary minor amendments.
Composite Veneers are non-prep so the treatment can usually be completed in one visit to your dentist. They provide a cosmetic smile makeover without any changes or damage to the natural teeth and this treatment is proving more popular especially after orthodontic treatment.
