Veneers Treatment

OVERVIEW
Veneers are overlays of porcelain bonded to teeth to mimic the natural shade and shape of teeth. They need to be applied by an experienced dentist.

WHAT TO EXPECT
The process may take as little as two visits to the dentist over a 6-week period. The process begins with a full consultation and examination of the mouth and teeth. The next step is usually a form of numbing where an anaesthetic is applied. The dentist will then prepare the original tooth, reshaping it with a rotational cutting device called a bur. This allows for the creation of the best surface for the veneer to be placed on.

BENEFITS
It is a relatively easy and quick process - certainly in comparison with orthodontistry. Veneers are durable and can match the original smile very closely.

POTENTIAL DOWNSIDE
They can chip and will need replacing over time (average life of 10-15 years). The final effect may not be as natural as hoped for. The most common complaint is that they look and/or feel bulky in the mouth. Veneers can damage the underlying teeth irrevocably so should always be fitted by a professional dentist. The fitting of veneers very often involves filing down the original tooth underneath and is irreversible.

    I had veneers done on my four front teeth a few weeks before I got married. I was a bit alarmed by the fact that they had to file down the original teeth! There's a sense of "no going back now" when they do that! But I had long been bothered with my smile. And having the veneers done really boosted my confidence.And n your wedding day, you send a lot of time with a big cheesy grin on your face!
