Based in East Molesey, The Gentle Dental is often highly recognised as one of the best cosmetic providers of veneers in Surrey and southwest London.
With cosmetic dentists with a special interest in veneers, we’re often the first choice for veneer applications.
When choosing the right dentist for your veneers, it’s important that you choose a reliable technician with plenty of experience in this field of dentistry.
What are veneers?
Veneers use a thin layer of porcelain which is custom made to be applied to the front surface of the teeth.
New modern advances have meant there are various brands and material types available, like Durathin, which are very thin (0.3mm).
Patients looking for cheaper alternatives to porcelain often turn to composite veneers, which are inexpensive, moulded directly to the tooth, cause no permanent damage and would need to be replaced every few years or so.
How long it will take to apply your veneers will depend on any additional procedures required or the type of veneer being fitted.
Often veneers never take more than two visits to complete.
Usually, the first appointment is where we match the tooth shade. Then the preparation of the tooth begins.
We offer trial smiles for patients having any cosmetic procedure carried out on their smiles, this is to allow them complete control and helps them to feel confident in the finished result.
We use special adhesives to bond the veneer to the tooth. This means your veneer will be safe and secure.
In some instances, a tiny bit of enamel will be removed from the surface of the tooth to ensure a successful and permanent bond.
The amount of enamel removed is minuscule and will not affect the size or shape of the tooth.
What are veneers used for?
Veneers are used to treat a wide variety of oral health concerns as well as improving the aesthetics of the mouth.
So many of our patients often choose veneers because they offer quick fixes to many cosmetic and oral problems including:
- Look completely like natural teeth
- Do not require tooth shaping like crowns
- Durable – can last 25 years!
The treatment is often quick, easy and reported as pain-free.
We may use a local anaesthetic (injection), to help prevent any minor discomfort during the procedure.
Impressions and moulds of the teeth are taken, which will be passed along to the dental technician responsible for crafting your veneer.
We will match the veneer to the colour of your teeth to make it entirely naturally and can even lighten your teeth up to several shades for a whiter, brighter look.
The gums of the mouth may be slightly sore after the procedure, but any discomfort will be sure to pass within a few days. Click here for aftercare tips.
