Veneers and Bonding
If you are embarrassed about your teeth and don’t like to smile, a smile makeover could be for you.
Imagine being complimented on your beautiful smile every day…
Here’s how we do it:
- Firstly we will listen to what you concerns are and what you envisage needs to be done to improve your smile. Often simple improvements will make the difference.
- Next we can probably show you what your teeth could look like by doing a mock up in your mouth; very quick and only temporary.
- A wax up of how your new smile would look is then done. This lets you see the end result before you start.
If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or malaligned, veneers will give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth adjustment.
A veneer is a porcelain facing on the front of your teeth usually your top teeth, it is just like a false finger nail.
Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth.
A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth (usually the upper ones) generally.
Veneers are made out of porcelain and are used mainly for aesthetic reasons.
Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed.
Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable.
If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
A Natural, No-Drilling Result
This lady wanted to look better for her wedding. The before photo shows a narrow smile with yellow canines and uneven front teeth. We had no time for orthodontics so we agreed to whiten the teeth and create a beautiful smile with veneers. A trial Smile was created so that we could both see how she would look and make adjustments if necessary before starting the work.
The final smile is much wider, the lengths of the teeth more even and the canines no longer yellower. A great natural result without drilling the teeth.
