If you’ve been looking at cosmetic dentistry options such as porcelain veneers, you may have lots of questions about the treatment and what you can expect during the process and beyond.
When you come in for a consultation at our Manchester dental practice, we’ll perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, recommending the ideal solutions for you. However, if you’d like to know more before you contact us, here’s our guide to dental veneers.
Dental Veneers Explained – What Are They?
Dental veneers are thin facings which are attached and bonded to the front teeth surfaces. They can be made to look like your existing teeth (e.g. if one tooth needs repairing) or to change the look of your smile. When undergoing a smile makeover, the colour, shape, length and size of the veneers are carefully selected to suit you, emulating natural teeth and creating the perfect smile for you.
Can You Get Veneers on One Tooth?
Yes! Veneers are very flexible, covering one, several or all your teeth as part of a smile makeover treatment. If you just need one tooth covered, i.e. because it’s chipped, the veneer will be made in the style of your existing teeth so that it blends in as naturally as possible to your smile.
Who Should Get Veneers?
Veneers are highly versatile, used for a range of different issues, from covering chipped and broken teeth to improving the colour and shape of your existing teeth. They’re a good option if your teeth are already in roughly the right position and just need to be aesthetically enhanced. When you visit our veneers and teeth bonding Manchester specialist, they’ll talk you through whether you’re a candidate for the treatment. If not, there may be other cosmetic dentistry solutions better suited to you.
Benefits of Tooth Veneers for Your Smile
When choosing the right dental treatment for you, consider your smile makeover goals, costs, what’s involved and the current condition of your oral health. Veneers are one of the most popular options with our Manchester dental patients thanks to the array of advantages of the treatment. This includes:
- Both composite and porcelain veneers are available for more choice.
- High-quality dental veneers are incredibly natural-looking for your smile.
- Solve a range of issues with your smile, such as chipped teeth.
- Use dental veneers to create your perfect smile.
- They’re a strong, long-lasting option if cared for properly.
- Veneers are low maintenance if you follow your dental hygiene programme.
- Some veneers are highly resistant to stains.
- In many cases, they can be attached to your smile with minimal or no preparation of your front teeth.
How Do Dental Veneer Treatments Work?
If you opt for porcelain veneers, there are several treatment steps to ensure you get the ideal tooth attachments for your smile. This includes coming in a for an examination and consultation, having an impression mould taken of your teeth and wearing temporary veneers which emulate your new smile to test how they look and feel. The mould can then be sent to the lab so that your permanent veneers can be created. Once ready, you’ll need to come back in for them to be bonded to your front teeth.
Porcelain vs Composite Veneers
The two main types of dental veneers available are composite and porcelain veneers. But which ones should you choose for your new smile?
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers are highly popular, providing a range of long-term benefits for patients:
- Highest quality material
- Most durable veneers
- Natural appearance
Composite Bonding Manchester Veneers
Composite veneers are also an option to consider, offering advantages such as:
- A ‘one visit’ dental treatment
- Cost-effective solutions
- Natural-looking when used correctly
To decide on the right treatment for you, visit our specialist veneers dentist at our Manchester practice.
Do Veneers Damage Natural Teeth?
Veneers can sometimes get a bad name due to their improper use, which is why it’s vital you visit a cosmetic dentistry specialist before the treatment. We’ll never recommend anything but the best treatments for your goals, smile makeover wishes and ongoing dental health.
Veneers work best when there’s enough healthy enamel to attach to, so teeth shouldn’t be heavily filed down if possible. Otherwise, it could lead to a lot of damage to the existing teeth, causing pain and sensitivity, as well as a higher risk of veneer failure.
At 360 Dental Care, we aim to achieve minimal preparation or no preparation veneers for our patients.
Do Veneers Last Long?
While veneers are easy to maintain thanks to their strength and stain-resistant benefits, you must care for them well. If you do, they will last for many years, often several decades!
How long veneers last will depend on:
- The quality of the material
- The standard of the treatment
- How much tooth enamel there was to bond to
- Your oral hygiene
- Diet and lifestyle (follow a low sugar diet)
It’s imperative you attend your check-up appointments as scheduled and let us know if you get any problems with your gums, teeth or veneers. We can also help reduce other issues such as teeth grinding.
Will Veneers Hurt?
Veneer treatments are minimally invasive as they are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. As long as the teeth aren’t filed back too far, you shouldn’t face pain or sensitivity. Please talk to your dentist if you have any worries or concerns.
How Much Are Teeth Veneers UK?
If you’re looking for veneers in Manchester or other UK locations, the price will vary from patient to patient and between places. Factors which define the cost of veneer treatments include:
- The number of veneers to be fitted
- Other treatments involved (e.g. teeth whitening)
- The extent of the treatment
- Which material you choose (composite vs porcelain)
- The existing condition of your teeth and gums
Once you’ve completed your smile makeover assessment, your dentist will talk you through the treatment options, including any costs involved to give you a better picture of what to expect. Please call our practice if you’d like to know more about the price range of treatments.
Can You Get Veneers on NHS Plans?
If you require veneers for reasons of dental health, then the treatment may be available on the NHS. However, any chosen for purely cosmetic purposes will need to be paid for privately. Discuss options with your dentist to see if you qualify for NHS dentistry help.
