What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are typically made from porcelain or composite resin, and they are bonded to your teeth using dental cement.
What to Expect When Getting Veneers
At Belmont Dental Surgery, we specialise in creating beautiful, natural-looking veneers. But what can you expect during the process of getting dental veneers? Let us walk you through each step of the procedure.
During your initial consultation, one of our experienced dentists will examine your teeth and discuss your goals for treatment. We’ll take x-rays and impressions of your teeth to help us create custom-made veneers that fit your teeth perfectly.
Once we’ve determined that dental veneers are the right choice for you, we’ll prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface of your teeth. This will ensure that the veneers fit correctly and look natural.
We’ll then take impressions of your teeth and send them to our dental laboratory, where your custom-made veneers will be created.
Once your veneers are ready, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to bond them to your teeth.
We’ll first place the veneers on your teeth to ensure a perfect fit, and then we’ll bond them to your teeth using dental cement.
We’ll then make any necessary adjustments to ensure that your bite is correct and that the veneers look and feel natural.
After your veneers are bonded to your teeth, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene habits to ensure that they last as long as possible. This includes brushing and flossing regularly and visiting our clinic for regular check-ups and cleanings.
With proper care, your dental veneers can last for many years, providing you with a beautiful, healthy smile.
