Veneers are becoming more and more popular throughout Ireland, as more people look to improve their overall smile. Thanks to advancements made in dentistry, veneers are now more affordable than ever before. A veneer is a thin layer of material, which is placed over the tooth surface in order to improve the overall shape, size and colour of the tooth. Essentially, it works similar to a false fingernail, as the appearance can be dramatically improved by dental veneer restoration.
They are the ideal treatment if you have the following:
- Chipped teeth
- Stained and discoloured teeth
- Spacing issues between the teeth
- Mildly crooked teeth
- Teeth that are too short or narrow
At The Friendly Dentist, we use porcelain veneers, which are far more durable than composite veneers, are less likely to stain and are aesthetically better. Your veneer is custom made and then securely bonded to the surface of your teeth, allowing us to recreate the natural shape and appearance of the tooth. You can discuss the shade of white you would like your new smile to be with your dentist.
At first, your dentist may need to reduce the enamel on the front of your tooth before placing the veneer. Your dentist will also take an impression of your tooth, in order to ensure the veneer is bonded to the tooth is made to the exact shape and size. On average, it takes two visits to complete – first to prepare and match the colour of the tooth and the second to fit the veneer into place. Veneers can help restore your tooth to its natural appearance, with little to no discomfort involved. Because of the strength of the adhesive, they are durable and dependable and also stain-resistant.
