Veneers – Before And After
Veneers are custom-made shells of porcelain or composite material bonded to the front surface of the teeth to improve the appearance of damaged, discoloured, cracked, chipped, poorly positioned or badly shaped teeth. They are often used to mask damaged or misshaped teeth, straighten minor teeth misalignments, close gaps or lighten tooth colour. They are also very popular in smile makeovers and smile design procedures.

How does Composite Bonding work?
Composite Bonding or Tooth Bonding in London is a very popular cosmetic dental procedure that is used to improve the shape, size, colour and overall appearance of the teeth. White composite material is used to change the shape and/or contour of teeth or in some cases, the entire smile. Composite bonding doesn’t need any needles or anaesthetics and can be completed in one visit typically. The composite material used for composite bonding can be made to exactly match the colour of the surrounding teeth, producing beautiful natural results.
The procedure starts with the cosmetic dentist picking a shade of composite material that exactly matches the colour of your teeth. The composite resin is carefully applied to the surface of the teeth, without any need to grind or damage the underlying healthy tooth structure (typically). The dentist will then carefully sculpture and shape the resin material like putty to fix tooth imperfections. The composite resin is then hardened with a special light and polished to produce beautiful natural results. Many patients find composite bonding as their cosmetic treatment of choice as its pain free, quick and highly cost-effective as compared to veneers. The procedure can also be repeated without damaging the underlying tooth.
How do Veneers work?
Veneers can be made from two types of materials – Porcelain / Ceramic and Composite material. Rapid advances in dental technology and composite resin bonding systems has literally revolutionised the use of porcelain veneers and composite veneers for ‘smile redesign’ procedures. During the Initial consultation, the cosmetic dentist will assess your needs and provide you with suitable options – porcelain vs composite veneers. The options will be discussed with you in detail to help you decide the option that best works for you. The dentist will make pre-procedure pictures and conduct teeth shade checks. As part of the smile design process, the dentist will take impressions to enable us to produce a diagnostic wax up of your veneers treatment. The wax up model will allow you to physically visualise and approve the planned results and outcome.
At the second appointment or stage, the teeth under consideration will be minimally prepared. The dentist will take an impression of your teeth and send it to the lab, along with your smile design for custom preparation. Temporary veneers will then be created to provide you a provisional aesthetically pleasing restoration. At the final appointment, the provisional veneers will be removed and your custom made veneers fitted. You will then be shown the finished results for your assessment. Once you are happy with the fit and appearance, the dentist will bond the veneers to your teeth, providing you with a brand new smile.
