Do you dream of the perfect smile? A once impossible goal could now be your very own reality with the innovation of veneers and inlays. Veneers and inlays provide a simple solution to broken, discoloured or uneven teeth which can quickly transform your smile. Not only can veneers eliminate issues of self-confidence but reduce tendencies of staining and are permanent therefore requiring little maintenance.
With most figures in the public eye having had an extent of dental procedures carried out it can be hard to remember not everyone was born with perfect teeth. Porcelain veneers have been around for years providing a simple method of forming the perfect smile. Chips or gaps in the front teeth can cause for issues in self-confidence which veneers can easily emit. Teeth stand as a key component when forming first impressions, which can be vastly enhanced through veneers and inlays.
Commonly Asked Questions
What are veneers and inlays?
A veneer is a fine layer of restorative material placed over the surface of the tooth. When fitted effectively, veneers approve the appearance of the tooth allowing you to tailor and transform your smile. Veneers consist of thin porcelain shells of ceramic which bond directly to the surface of the tooth, masking any staining, chipping or gaps.
They can be formed in a multitude of ways either by hand or through machines guided by digital technology. When designed by our skilled professionals, the veneers will be indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Inlays are a similar dental treatment which involves placing a protective layer over the surface of your teeth. Where your tooth has become damaged though doesn’t call for a filling, inlays lie within the cusp of the tooth, where cavities often originate. Unlike veneers, inlays are often preferred to cover smaller problem areas.
How does the procedure work?
Firstly, a consultation will be carried out to comprehensively assess the general health of your mouth. Before initialising any veneer or inlay work, fundamental issues will be addressed. Your dentist will discuss your preferences to find the perfect style of teeth. Not only can you specify the tooth colour, but thickness and shape can be altered to form the perfect appearance.
Whilst your permanent veneers are made, you’ll be provided with a temporary replica to protect the natural teeth. Throughout this phase, you’ll get a real feeling for the teeth and ensure that the chosen model suits you and your personality. Here a review of your ‘trial smile’ is carried out to ensure everything is perfect for you.
Once you are totally happy with the design of your teeth, the procedure is ready to go ahead. The placement of porcelain veneers is generally pain-free as dentists will numb the area before removing the small amount of enamel. This allows for the porcelain veneers or inlays to be bonded, forming your bespoke refined smile.
