Dental veneers at Didsbury Dental Practice, Manchester
Veneers are a very popular and aesthetically pleasing way of getting that million dollar smile you’ve always wanted. Veneers are excellent for treating chipped, discoloured or misshapen teeth, especially at the front of the mouth. They can also be used to remedy irregular spacing, minor crowding and replace worn down enamel.
Veneers are thin, tooth coloured porcelain or composite shells that are custom-made to bond to the front surface of your teeth to restore or improve the aesthetics of the tooth. Veneers can best be described as being like false fingernails for your smile.
Tooth preparation is minimal and the veneers are bonded to the tooth structure with special resin cement. Generally, veneers are fitted in two separate appointments.
The first appointment will be for the tooth or teeth to be prepared for the veneers. This will involve numbing the teeth with a local anaethetic so there is no discomfort during treatment. A small amount of the front surface of the tooth is removed and impressions taken so the final custom-made veneers can be prepared. The veneers are then fitted at the second appointment to create a uniform, natural and healthy looking smile.
