Porcelain veneers are made in the lab by highly skilled technicians, guided by the direction of our own experienced cosmetic dentists. This means every set is completely unique and made according to the smile aspirations of each patient.
If you’re looking to perfect your smile and want longevity, porcelain veneers may be the right option for you. They can help amend small gaps in the teeth, as well as altering shape and colour. In some cases, they can be used to address overlapping or uneven teeth, helping to create a more even, symmetrical, and photogenic smile.
This largely depends on the profile of your natural teeth. Sometimes it is possible to place veneers without any preparation to the natural teeth. Where this isn’t the case, we prefer to be as non-invasive as possible removing a minimal part of the natural tooth enamel in order to successfully place the veneers.
After an initial consultation with us here at Ringway Dental, the treatment is usually carried out over two to three separate appointments. This also includes a ‘trial smile’ where you get to test out your new teeth, before they are made in the lab.
We usually recommend the application of four to six porcelain veneers to get a great result, but they can be used to restore a singular tooth.
We recommend caring for your veneers just as we recommend caring for your natural teeth. This means brushing twice daily for two minutes, using interdental brushes or flossing, and twice yearly check-ups and hygienist appointments here at the practice.
