DENTAL VENEERS, EDINBURGH
At Barron Dental, Dental Veneers can give you the smile you have always wanted.
Barron Dental can provide our patients with an excellent cosmetic solution for teeth that are discoloured, misshapen or that do not line up evenly.
Often patients attend Barron Dental and explain that they are unhappy with a space between their teeth, so we thoroughly assess all our patients teeth to decide if dental veneers is the best solution for their concerns. Veneers are often an excellent cosmetic solution to close gaps and dental veneers can often be placed without having to carry out extensive dental work and there are many examples of these in TV makeover programmes.
What are Dental Veneers?
It is a thin piece of porcelain or composite resin placed over the visible area of a front teeth and they are used to re-create the natural look of teeth and also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. Veneers are custom made to the contour of each teeth and are bonded to the tooth’s original enamel.
There are various reasons to have teeth restored with veneers and these can be because of chipped, misaligned, worn down and also uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. Patients also choose dental veneers as a cosmetic solution to enhance the brightness of their teeth and to straighten their smile and also to correct issues like discolouration, fractures, or chips. Many people choose veneers to improve the appearance of a single tooth or their whole smile.
How are Dental Veneers placed onto teeth?
The typical process for placing dental veneers is carried out over two appointments, normally 1-2 weeks apart. If the veneer is made from composite resin, it usually takes one appointment and if the laboratory is creating a porcelain veneer it takes two appointments. Porcelain dental veneers provide a quick and painless solution for providing an attractive smile.
The initial procedure involves the dentist removing a small amount of the enamel of the tooth to provide room to place the veneer on the tooth, then an impression of the tooth is taken for the laboratory technicians and a temporary veneer will be placed on your tooth. A colour shade for the dental veneer will be determined to match with the shade of the other teeth.
On the second appointment, the temporary veneer is removed and this is generally very straight forward to remove and does not involve the need for anaesthesia or drilling. The new dental veneer, which is made by one of our highly skilled laboratory technicians, is then tried on the prepared tooth and it is carefully assessed by the dentist and patient. The patient is encouraged to look closely at the new veneer on their tooth before it is cemented into place and if everyone is happy with the look of the veneer, it is cemented in place with a clear cement. The cement used is very strong and all patients can bite into food as normal shortly after the veneer is placed.
How long do Veneers last?
Veneers can last 10-20 years, but it should always be kept in mind when placing veneers, that they will need replaced at some stage.
