Composite Veneers UK – Here is your Ultimate Guide


Composite Veneers

A nice smile can bring out the best in everyone! When you smile, you invite people into a safe space, you’re approachable, and you make other people feel more comfortable. On a personal level, it helps to boost your confidence, attitude, and general dental health!

A Smile Makeover is commonly thought of as purely cosmetic. Still, in reality, this reference includes a series of dental procedures performed on single and multiple teeth to improve the appearance and health of your teeth and gums.

What are Veneers?

A veneer is a porcelain casing attached to your natural tooth. You can get them on a single tooth that is maybe discoloured or sits in front of/behind other teeth, or you can get them on an entire row of teeth. The finishing product is a white, clean, and perfectly smooth tooth that, if done well – like we do here at Maida Smiles—can last you decades.

For those of you who may need some association veneers are like artificial fingernails. Not only are they similar in how they are fitted, but also in terms of their effect. They make your nails look and feel strong and can improve the confidence of those wearing them.

Some of you may need them because you struggle with your natural nails. Maybe you constantly chew them, or they are always breaking because they are so weak. Then, doing something as simple as getting your nails done can be life-changing. The same goes for veneers. Some people wouldn’t consider it, while others would do anything to achieve a smile that improves their confidence and makes their lives better.

Why would you get a veneer?

People may choose to alter their smiles for any number of reasons, such as improving chewing, filling gaps from removed teeth, or improving the health of teeth and gums.

Unfortunately, some people aren’t born with strong, healthy teeth and gums. They experience a lot of damage over the years, and veneers are a quick and effective solution for stained, chipped, misshapen, or crooked teeth. They can also cover gaps in teeth where orthodontic treatment may not be suitable.

What is the process of treatment, and how are Veneers fitted?

You will have an initial assessment, during which the Dentist checks the health of your jaw, gum foundation, and teeth using a combination of visual and X-rays. Then, they will talk you through the treatment plan, discuss any other treatment options that may also need to be considered, and explain what to expect during and after your treatment. They will then answer any questions you may have. If you have any other treatments that need to be completed before the veneers, they will also be discussed and scheduled.

The dentist will then discuss shape, size, and colour with you. Usually, this is kept as close to your original teeth as possible, leaving you with a natural-looking smile. However, there are many different options for your smile makeover, some even choosing ‘Hollywood style’ for their most desired outcome.

Following your consultation and planning, the next stage is to prepare your teeth for the treatment.

This involves filing down the teeth. Most often, this is accompanied by a local anaesthetic. However, not always, because the filing does not go past the enamel. The patient shouldn’t experience any pain, and therefore, this procedure can be performed without anaesthetic. The amount that is removed by the filing will be the same thickness as the veneer, so it feels as normal as your natural teeth after the treatment is completed.

The dentist will then take an impression of your mouth so the bespoke veneer can be fitted perfectly to your teeth. A temporary cover will be placed over your tooth while this is being prepared.

Finally, the area will be roughed, cleaned, and polished to fit the veneer better so the bonding agent sticks. The veneer will then be attached to each tooth and adjusted as necessary before being permanently secured in place.

Before you leave, there will be a final check for adjustments, a bite assessment and a thorough review to ensure you are comfortable and happy with the finished product.
