Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of damaged teeth or simply to create a better looking smile.
A dental veneer is a thin layer of restorative material that, placed and glued securely to the surface of a tooth, can improve its colour and shape. This cosmetic dentistry process was created by Charles Pincus in 1928. He a dentist employed by a film crew to temporarily alter the appearance of the teeth of actors. Pincus and others improved the process, which is now widely used around the world and recognised as an incredibly safe and effective dental procedure.
The process is carried out over just two appointments and offer guaranteed lasting results. At the first appointment at the Toothsome Dental Care, the edges of your teeth and gums will be fully prepared for the veneers before impressions are taken. These will be used to individually construct your unique veneers which will be fitted at the following appointment. Between these appointments, your teeth will generally look and feel the same – some patients report slight sensitivity but this is rare and will alleviate once treatment is completed.
