I was speaking with one of our new patients Jonathan from Ashgrove last week about upgrading his smile. He has heard of dental veneers but doesn’t know much about them. After taking him through his different options, he decided on porcelain veneers.
It occurred to me that many people are interested in upgrading their smile with dental veneers, but don’t know enough about them, so I thought I’ll make a short video explaining this wonderful treatment, just in case you are considering this service.
So what is a dental veneer?
So who would benefit most from Dental Veneers?
Well, there are many reasons why a patient may want veneers. If a person has crowded, crooked, misaligned, gappy, chipped, worn, discoloured or heavily filled teeth, veneers will improve the function and look of these teeth.
There are 2 main types of materials when it comes to dental veneers, composite veneer and ceramic veneer.
Once we have established the goals of treatment, photos and records are taken so that we can create digital designs and simulations. After this, we complete a test drive of the designs to show you how the veneers will look before the teeth are prepared for the veneers. This way, you know exactly how they will look before we begin the process.
Depending on whether they are composite or ceramic veneers, you will need 2-6 appointments to prepare the teeth, make and bond the veneers. The last step is to arrange a review to ensure that everything feels comfortable and that you are enjoying your new smile.
I hope I have given you a better understanding of dental veneers.
