What is a veneer?

A veneer is an ultra-thin porcelain shell that is meticulously designed to bond with the front of your tooth. Veneers are primarily utilized for their cosmetic benefits, significantly enhancing the colour, shape, and overall appearance of your teeth. They offer a seamless solution for restoring chipped teeth, with each veneer carefully matched in shade to blend naturally with your existing teeth.

Veneers are also capable of bridging minor gaps between teeth. Whether you choose to enhance your entire smile with a full set of veneers for a uniformly brilliant appearance, or apply them selectively to address specific dental imperfections, the results are transformative.

While porcelain is the material of choice for most veneers due to its durability and lifelike appearance, composite materials are also available. Composite veneers tend to be more cost-effective but generally do not provide the same natural look or longevity as porcelain.

Veneers are an excellent solution for those seeking that flawless ‘Hollywood’ smile, offering a significant transformation without the need for braces or extensive teeth whitening procedures. They are a swift, effective way to achieve a stunning smile and boost your confidence.

Porcelain Veneers in Central London – what happens?

If you’re considering veneers and your dentist confirms they’re a suitable option, the treatment involves several appointments at our City of London practice.

The journey to a stunning, natural-looking smile begins with an initial consultation. During this meeting, your dentist will examine your teeth to identify any issues and discuss your specific needs. The next step involves preparing your teeth by gently removing a minimal layer of enamel. This is followed by taking precise impressions of your teeth, which the dental lab will use to create your custom veneers.

While your permanent veneers are being meticulously crafted, you’ll wear temporary ones. These temporaries are both strong and aesthetically pleasing, ensuring they blend seamlessly with your smile.

Once your custom veneers are ready, you’ll return to our clinic for the final fitting. Your dentist will carefully place the veneers, transforming your smile. We will also provide detailed guidance on how to care for your veneers, including maintaining a proper dental hygiene routine, to ensure your new smile lasts for many years.

Consultation

At your initial consultation with your dentist he/she will inspect your teeth and see if you're suitable for a veneer. Your dentist may ask a number of health orientated questions and then suggest the best possible course of treatment for your circumstances.

Treatment

To make sure the veneer is securely bonded to the tooth, the outer surface of enamel will be removed. Once all necessary teeth have been prepared, your dentist will then take a mould of your mouth so each individual veneer can be tailor-made to the correct shape. Each veneer will then be bonded to the tooth using a strong super adhesive guaranteed to provide a secure fit.

Aftercare

Ensuring that you keep good care of your veneers by avoiding particularly sticky or chewy food after they have been fitted will protect against damage Maintaining a regular and robust dental health routine will not only protect your veneers from harm but also help avoid the risk of future dental problems.

WHAT TO EXPECT

How long do veneers take?

The first will involve preparing the teeth, and the second to actually fit the veneers. During this visit, your dentist will hold your tailor-made veneers upon your chosen teeth to make sure you’re 100% happy before bonding takes place.

TREATMENT

Are veneers painful?

No – typically, veneers are considered a pain-free procedure by the vast majority of patients.

 

However, during the tooth-preparation process, a local anaesthetic may be administered to avoid any potential sensitivity or discomfort that may occur. Once preparation is over, the actual application of the veneers should be painless.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of veneers are there?

Porcelain veneers are highly recommended for most cases due to their exceptional durability, natural appearance, and longevity. These veneers are non-porous, which means they resist stains from coffee, wine, and other substances, making them ideal for those who enjoy these beverages. They are designed to correct various dental imperfections such as gaps, crooked teeth, discoloration, and uneven teeth. At our clinic, porcelain veneers are backed by a 5-year guarantee, though with proper care including good oral hygiene and regular maintenance, they can last 15 years or more.

Composite veneers, on the other hand, are made from a material similar to that used for white fillings and do not offer the same longevity as porcelain. They are porous and more susceptible to staining from habits like smoking or drinking dark-colored beverages. Additionally, composite veneers are less durable and more prone to chipping compared to their porcelain counterparts.

Lumineers are another type of veneer that requires no preparation of the natural teeth, such as filing down, and can be directly adhered to the existing tooth surface. They work best for teeth that are slightly gapped or recessed, as they can close gaps and create a more aligned look. However, lumineers are not suitable for all cases, particularly when teeth are protruding or overlapping, as they might appear too thick and unnatural. In some cases, both dental veneers and lumineers are used together, depending on whether the teeth need to be prepped.

Snap-on veneers are a temporary cosmetic solution, similar to a gum shield, and are not typically recommended by dentists for permanent smile enhancement. They are less effective for correcting protrusions since all teeth in the snap-on piece must align, maintaining the protrusion rather than minimizing it.

Cerec veneers provide a quick solution, as they can be created and placed in just one day using a computer-assisted design based on precise dental specifications. The aesthetic quality of Cerec veneers depends heavily on the dentist’s skill in designing them, emphasizing the importance of a skilled practitioner for this type of dental veneer.

This array of options highlights the versatility of veneers as a solution for enhancing smiles, each with specific advantages and considerations, allowing for personalized dental care tailored to individual needs and conditions.

Am I able to change veneers after they've been fitted?

Once a veneer has been bonded to the tooth, only minor changes can be made. It’s recommended you wait at least a few weeks before making any decisions, as you’ll need time to adjust to their appearance.

What are the best veneers?

The highest quality dental veneers are crafted from top-notch porcelain, with popular options like Empress and Emax porcelain. However, the best type of porcelain for your veneers really depends on your specific dental needs.

Choosing the right porcelain isn’t just about picking a brand; it involves considering various factors unique to each patient’s teeth. For instance, some porcelains may look incredibly natural but might be too thin to cover deep discoloration on a tooth.

Cosmetic dentists and lab technicians work together closely to decide the best approach for achieving the most attractive final result. If you’re considering which veneers are best for you, it’s important to consult with a skilled and experienced cosmetic dentist who can make a personalized recommendation based on a thorough assessment of your teeth. This is a more reliable method than trying to figure it out on your own.

How do I find a good cosmetic dentist to get veneers?

In the UK, cosmetic dentistry is not officially recognized as a specialty, which means any dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist regardless of their experience. To ensure you choose a highly competent cosmetic dentist, consider the following tips:

  1. Experience and Portfolio: Look for a cosmetic dentist with a substantial portfolio of before-and-after photos from actual patients they have treated. Be cautious of generic stock images which may not reflect their work.
  2. Online Reviews: Research the dentist online to find reviews and testimonials from previous patients. Positive feedback can be a good indicator of satisfaction with their cosmetic dental treatments.
  3. Specialization: Determine if the dentist focuses exclusively on cosmetic dentistry or if they also practice general dentistry. A dedicated cosmetic dentist might provide higher quality aesthetic results.
  4. Efficiency and Comfort: Inquire about the average duration of treatment sessions. A skilled cosmetic dentist can typically place eight upper veneers within 2 to 3 hours. Lengthier sessions might indicate less experience and could lead to discomfort.
  5. Consultation Quality: During your consultation, check if the dentist offers a simulation of the expected results, shows examples of past cases, discusses potential shapes for your new teeth, and perhaps offers a trial smile. These practices demonstrate their commitment to tailored care and patient satisfaction.

Choosing the right cosmetic dentist is crucial for a satisfactory outcome and a comfortable experience, so take your time to ensure they meet your expectations and needs.

What are veneers used for?

  • Repair Chipped Teeth: Porcelain veneers offer a robust and aesthetic solution for repairing chipped or broken teeth. If a significant portion of the tooth is intact, veneers can effectively restore its original shape. In cases where over half of the tooth has been damaged, crowns might be required for additional strength.
  • Straighten Crooked Teeth: Veneers can also straighten the appearance of crooked teeth by covering any misalignments. This method provides a quick and effective way to achieve a uniformly aligned smile without the need for orthodontics.
  • Close Gaps: Dental veneers are perfect for closing gaps between teeth. They can be tailored to fit the space precisely, making them an ideal solution for quickly enhancing the overall appearance of your smile.
  • Treat Discolored Teeth: Various factors, including aging, staining, or fluorosis, can lead to discolored teeth. Veneers are an excellent option for covering these imperfections, offering a brighter and more even smile.
  • Correct Overlapping Teeth: Veneers can effectively disguise overlapping teeth by smoothing out their appearance. This involves the careful removal of a small portion of the overlapping enamel before the veneers are applied.
  • Restore Worn Teeth: For teeth that have been worn down over time, perhaps due to grinding or general wear, veneers can restore them to their original length and appearance, rejuvenating your smile.
  • Address Minor Imperfections: If you’re looking to enhance a smile that has minor imperfections, veneers are a suitable option. They require minimal removal of enamel and can significantly improve the look of your teeth, making your smile appear naturally flawless.

Do veneers ruin your teeth?

Dental veneers are a highly favored option in cosmetic dentistry, celebrated for their durable and low-risk outcomes when correctly applied. Yet, it’s crucial to note that if veneers are placed by someone without the proper qualifications, there is a risk of damage to the natural teeth. To ensure the best results, a comprehensive consultation with the specialist performing the procedure is essential. This meeting provides an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and to understand fully what the veneer process involves.

Do veneers hurt?

For most people, getting new veneers is a quick and pain-free process, typically requiring just two appointments. We prioritize your comfort throughout, from the initial consultation to leaving our clinic with your new veneers, all within a relaxing and supportive environment.

Our team is dedicated to ensuring that even the application of a local anesthetic, if needed, causes minimal discomfort—amounting to nothing more than a brief scratch. The procedure for placing veneers usually takes about 90 minutes, after which you can comfortably go back to your daily activities.

It’s normal to experience a bit of gum sensitivity initially or to take some time adjusting to the feel of your new veneers. You might notice slight changes in chewing, speaking, or biting, but these sensations typically subside within a few days. Once you’re accustomed to them, your veneers will look and feel completely natural, enhancing your smile beautifully.
