Experience the dramatic effect of veneers at London SE1 dentist

28 / 01 / 2010

A dental veneer is a specially designed ceramic shell that is cemented over the top of a tooth for either cosmetic or restorative purposes. Veneer technology has improved in recent years to the extent that they now appear incredibly lifelike and can be manufactured to be as thin as a contact lens to limit enamel damage.

In the past it was sometimes necessary to remove a certain amount of enamel from the tooth in order to accommodate the veneer. Because modern veneers are so thin they can be fitted over teeth in their existing condition, including teeth that have had previous dental repair work.

Once manufactured, veneers are fairly straightforward to fit using the adhesive power of dental bonding. This means that a set of veneers can completely change the cosmetic appearance of all your teeth in just one appointment. Many patients choose to use veneers to restore the appearance of discoloured or worn teeth. On other occasions, one or two veneers may be fitted to protect a chipped or broken tooth from further damage, acting as a protective layer. Some tooth damage can be repaired with composite resin alone, but if the crack is affecting the structure of the tooth, or if more than one tooth is damaged it may be better to use veneers.

Modern veneers are made form ceramic, usually porcelain and can be manufactured with the help of the latest computer technology available to London SE1 dentists. Veneers are capable of producing dramatic changes in patient’s smiles with only the minimum of effort or discomfort involved.
