Veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-coloured translucent material in either porcelain or composite resin. As well as providing protection for teeth, they can be an extremely effective solution for patients seeking to correct discoloured, misshapen, chipped or fractured teeth.
Providing veneers sometimes requires preparation and reshaping of the tooth. With composite veneers the prepared tooth is carefully bonded and sculpted in a matched shade. The composite is hardened using a special light and then the veneer is smoothed and polished to give it a completely natural appearance.
Porcelain veneers – although more costly – is sometimes the best option due to the strength it affords the tooth, as well as its excellent translucency, making it look incredibly natural. Porcelain veneers are not made directly and instantly in the surgery, but are sent off to a special laboratory, involving more time and – obviously – money.
A consultation regarding veneers at Silas St Dental is aimed at understanding your expectations and ensuring you are well informed about the differing types of veneers, the procedures and time involved, and the potential outcomes. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
