If you have gapped, chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth, you no longer have to hide your smile. Dental veneers can easily correct your teeth’s flaws and restore your beautiful smile. Unlike crowns, veneers are minimally invasive and natural looking. They are an ideal option for patients who want to make minor adjustments to their smile.
At Simply Teeth in Essex, veneers are thin custom-made, tooth-coloured shells made of high-quality porcelain, fixed on the front side of your teeth. During you initial consultation, our experienced dentists will determine whether veneers are right for your situation and will present you with a detailed treatment plan including all the costs and expected outcomes. Our goal is to enhance your smile, while protecting your teeth and gums.
How dental veneers can improve your smile
Porcelain veneers are an ideal solution for correcting small or medium gaps between teeth, imperfections in tooth position, yellow or misshapen teeth, as well as some minor bite problems. They can also be used by patients who have worn down their teeth because of grinding them, or people with fractured teeth.
The application process
After your consultation visit, your dentist will prepare the tooth surface by removing a very thin layer of your tooth enamel. Then, they will capture an accurate impression of your teeth in order to create the veneers. Once the impression is ready, a dental technician in our laboratory will skilfully sculpt the desired number of veneers out of a very thin layer of tooth coloured material.
Porcelain veneers are customized to your specifications and then bonded to the teeth with a special adhesive. Once your dentist sets the adhesive, they will test your bite and adjust the veneer/s on your teeth as necessary. Your dentist will suggest a follow-up visit to ensure that your veneers are not causing any problems.
Veneers offer many benefits including a natural tooth appearance, good oral hygiene and resistance against stains. Unlike crowns, they do not require extensive shaping prior to the procedure, yet offer a stronger, more aesthetically pleasing alternative.
