Dental Veneers

At Westmore dentistry, we understand how valuable your appearance is. So, we do all we can to ensure you maintain top-notch dental health and appearances. One of the ways we do this is through our service of fixing dental veneers. Veneers are to the teeth; what artificial nails are to the fingers.

These wafer-thin shells made from porcelain or resin composites can be used to cover your frontal teeth and improve your smile and general appearance. The porcelain veneer is better as it is stain resistant and has similar qualities of the natural teeth. It is also more durable and can last as long as ten years. The composite only lasts for about two years.

Types of veneer

The traditional type of veneer

This requires a lot of preparation before it can be applied. The procedure for fixing it is usually invasive as it sometimes requires removing some part of the tooth.

The no-prep veneers

This is an alternative that does not require much invasive preparation to apply it. In fact, it is possible to apply it without using local anaesthesia, unlike the traditional veneer.

Dental veneers do not just serve cosmetic purposes; they are used to fix both dental health and aesthetic problems such as:

  • Teeth discolouration
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Misshapen and misaligned teeth
  • Closing the spaces in between teeth
  • Chipped and broken teeth.

1.

Preliminary

Once you have decided you need veneers. Consult our dentists who will guide you through the entire process, the cost, and the available options for you. They also give expert recommendations on what you should do based on your peculiar situation.

2.

Preparation

After this, the dentist prepares your teeth for veneers by removing a tiny fragment of your enamel. Your teeth impression is used to design the suitable veneers for you; all these happen within a week or two.

3.

Placement

When the veneers have been designed to fit perfectly with your teeth, they are cleaned and attached to your teeth with a special adhesive. To further ensure they are well cemented, ultraviolet light is also applied to bond it quickly.

4.

Post-procedure Care

We further schedule few check-up sessions to ensure the veneer is fixed correctly and there is no risk of it falling off. Any complaints are adequately dealt with during this time, and you’re assured of a fantastic smile once more.
