Dental Venners Guide: Finding The Right Colour For Your Veneers

Finding Your Perfect Shade…

Who knew that choosing your own tooth shade could be an actual thing…but then again, you’re going to be wearing your teeth for life and you want to feel comfortable and confident every time you smile. So why shouldn’t you be able to choose your perfect shade?

Thanks to ever evolving technology we are now in a position where we can pick the actual shade of our teeth at the clinic with the Dentist and be confident this is what you will receive when your veneers are fitted.

At Maida Smiles we are all about harmony. We focus more on the aesthetics of an individual rather than just the cosmetics. What that means is, we take everything into consideration when discussing both the shade and shape of your teeth. 

How do we find the right colour for your veneers?

Being one of the few clinics here in London that have the technology to produce like for like results, guarantees our patients leave our clinic with the exact shade they chose. This is down to our state-of-the-art eLAB system; a photography system that makes the precision of the colour of the patient’s teeth match perfectly with the colour that will come with the veneers.

The eLAB system transforms your digital camera into an easy to use shade matching system, resulting not only in better clinical results but also in improved customer relations. We use a polarised shield for the photographs and when this is used in conjunction with specific settings on the camera it can be read by  software at the laboratory which will translate it into a digital prescription of a multitude of colours and shades that can be applied on the ceramic of the new tooth restoration.

The digital workflow eliminates the subjective opinion of a dentist, nurse or lab technician when looking at the original adjacent tooth colour that we are trying to match – further reducing probabilities of colour/shade mismatch. What this means is you’re not relying on a person’s vision to compare and match the shades, but rather a digital prescription that matches the exact shade to a microscopic level. 

Once the eLAB has recorded the shade of teeth this then gets sent digitally to the lab prior to sending the impressions.

How do we find the right shape for your veneers?

Aat Maida Smiles we want to help you find your perfect smile that you will be happy with for life! Face alignment is very important and something that can be overlooked by some professionals, however at this practice we focus just as much on the aesthetics of the entire face rather than just your new veneers. This also reassures our patients they are receiving the most natural looking results that won’t alter their appearance. As a rule of thumb the colour of your teeth shouldn’t be whiter than the shade of the white in your eyes, if they are they will appear less natural.

The shape of your teeth can be customised to match your face, smile and eye shape. Some people will choose a straight edge and others prefer a more rounded shape. Many different options can be offered to you and will be discussed with you during your appointment with the Dentist. Yes, who knew so much went into picking your perfect smile!
