Veneers Fulham Road Dental

Veneers can be used to improve your smile and confidence.

This treatment involves the addition of ceramic (porcelain) or composite resin to repair the shape, colour, and symmetry of your smile. 

Every person is different, so an in-depth smile analysis will be undertaken to create a new smile that fits your face perfectly. The clinician will spend time discussing the treatment with you, advising and listening to make sure they know exactly the look you want.

Dental veneers

A dental veneer is used to mask cosmetic imperfections such as chips, cracks, stains, and gaps between teeth, creating a more uniform and attractive smile. Veneers are custom-made to match the shape, size, and colour of existing teeth, and the procedure typically involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel to accommodate the veneers. With proper care, veneers can last for many years, offering a durable and natural-looking solution for enhancing the smile.

This procedure is perfect for restoring any broken teeth. Patients can also pick and choose which teeth they would like to restore; the majority of patients restore only the front surface of their front teeth, as this is the visible part.

Porcelain veneers

A porcelain veneer is a type of dental veneer made from a thin layer of porcelain material that is bonded to the front surface of teeth. They are a popular choice for cosmetic dentistry due to their durability, resistance to staining, and ability to match the colour and translucency of natural teeth closely.

Porcelain veneers can be used to improve the appearance of a variety of dental issues, such as chips, cracks, gaps, and misalignments, as well as to brighten and straighten the smile. The veneers are custom-made to fit each individual tooth and are usually applied in two or three appointments, with the final result providing a long-lasting and natural-looking solution for a more attractive smile.

Ceramic Veneers

Involve the digital scanning of your teeth after minor preparation and the placement of provisional veneers to ‘test drive’ the result. At a subsequent appointment, the handmade veneers, which have been made by one of our professional ceramists, are fitted.

Temporary dental veneers

A temporary dental veneer is a type of veneer that can be worn for a limited time, typically a few days to a few weeks, to preview the final result before a permanent veneer is placed. They are often made from a resin material that is not as durable as porcelain veneers but is less invasive and can be easily removed or adjusted if necessary.

A temporary veneer can be a useful tool for patients who are considering permanent veneers, as they provide an opportunity to see how their new smile will look and feel before committing to the full procedure. They can also be used as a temporary solution for special events or short-term cosmetic needs.

Composite resin veneers

Shaped onto the teeth in a single appointment. Our aesthetic clinicians are highly trained and experienced in this treatment. Composite veneers are resin composite materials that are a type of dental veneer made from a tooth-coloured material that is bonded to the front surface of teeth.

They are a more affordable and minimally invasive alternative to porcelain veneers, as they do not require the removal of as much tooth structure. Resin composite veneers can be used to improve the appearance of a variety of cosmetic dental issues, such as chips, cracks, gaps, and stains, and can provide a more uniform and attractive smile.

The material can be moulded and shaped directly on the tooth to match its colour and texture, and the procedure typically involves one or two appointments. While resin composite veneers are less durable and may not last as long as porcelain veneers, they are a good option for patients who are seeking a less permanent cosmetic solution for their teeth.

How much do veneers cost?

Depending on which type and how many veneers you require, dental veneers can range anywhere from a couple of hundred pounds to thousands of pounds. Each type can vary depending on many factors, it is best to speak to experienced dentists when enquiring as they can carry out any x rays and provide an accurate consultation before handing over a price.

Looking after dental veneers

Although this procedure is beneficial for healthy gums and general oral health, they do need to be looked after in order to maintain quality. Veneers are not stain resistant, so food and drink with standing attributes such as red wine, curry and rich tomato foods may need avoiding.

To avoid any risk of breakage, hard foods such as tough meat, pork rind and hard nuts may also need to be avoided to keep teeth maintained.

Why choose dental veneers?

Patients tend to choose dental veneers when they are not happy with their smile and there is perhaps too much damage for a minor procedure. Dental veneers can be a perfect option for transforming your smile. If you are having problems with one tooth or you like the sound of a new veneer set, contact our Fulham dental clinic for an initial consultation.

Veeners FAQ's

How long do veneers take to settle?

The healing period and the settling of thin sheeters depend on many factors and may vary depending on the procedure used. Here’s an overview:

  • Initial Period: Usually, the sensitivity or discomfort you experience is minor, and your mouth gets used to the veneers. After the procedure, take care of your teeth by following the guidelines given by your dentist.
  • First Few Days: Stipulated sensitivity to hot or cold and slight discomfort of gums can be observed only for seconds.
  • Within One Week: As your mouth gradually adjusts to the veneers, you will likely notice a significant increase in comfort.
  • Two Weeks: Most often, people adapt without difficulties, and by then, strains and discomfort should be gone.
  • Long-Term Adjustment: They may need some fine-tuning for a couple of weeks or months after you get used to having veneers in place of your natural teeth.
  • Regular Check-Ups: It’s crucial to maintain regular visits with your dentist.

Can you go back to normal teeth after veneers?

Once you have veneers, returning to your regular teeth is feasible. However, this method calls for removing the veneers, potentially harming the underlying tooth structure. Your dentist will examine the state of your tooth and can endorse further processes to rejuvenate it. It’s essential to note that your enamel may seem as precise as it was before getting veneers. Please consult with us here at Fulham Road Dental ahead of time.

How many teeth do most people get veneers on?

The range of teeth people get veneers on can vary, depending on a personal preference. Veneers are usually applied to the front tooth, which might be the most visible while smiling. Many people pick veneers on their higher front teeth (incisors and canines) because those teeth are prominent and play a good-sized role in smile aesthetics. Some people may additionally favour having veneers carried out nicely to their decreased front teeth, especially if those teeth are also seen while smiling.
