Veneers are a flexible dental solution to lots of issues you may have with the way your teeth look. In essence, veneers are designed to give you a perfectly even smile.
The process for fitting veneers does not require surgery as the veneers are chemically bonded to your existing teeth.
The procedure for having veneers fitted consists of two stages. First, to prepare your teeth for the veneers, your dentist will remove around ½ a millimetre of tooth enamel. When fitted your new veneers will replace this space to ensure you have a natural-looking smile. Having removed the enamel, your dentist will then use dental gum to make an impression of your teeth. This impression will then be sent to our dental laboratory where the veneers are created.
After 1-2 weeks you’ll have your second appointment where the veneers will be fitted. First, your dentist will trim the veneer down to ideal size. Next, he will clean, polish and then etch your tooth to create the optimal surface for the veneer to be fitted on to. The veneer will then be bonded to your tooth with a dental cement.
