Veneers are thin layers of tooth coloured porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of the tooth.
Veneers are used to address certain dental conditions such as:
Dr Naveed Patel uses the highest quality of veneers made by master ceramists from EMAX or porcelain. These materials have been specifically designed to withstand immense amounts of pressure but not tarnish its faultless appearance so that the perfect smile can be created.
At your consultation Dr Naveed Patel will discuss what you are looking to achieve with cosmetic dental treatment. We need to understand your concerns with your smile so that we are effective in providing the relative solution to surpass all expectations with the treatment we provide.
We will take digital photographs of your teeth so that your smile can be discussed subjectively and converse the various options available to you. All risks and benefits will be discussed with you so that the treatment is fully understood. We can then plan the treatment for your new smile.
With all the information we collect from you we will work with our lab technician to create a wax up and design for you your new smile. The design is created digitally with digital smile design and printed, we can try the new smile over your teeth so that we can view and trial the end results prior to us preparing your teeth for the final veneer fit. At this stage we can make any adjustments or amendments as necessary. Once we are satisfied with the digital smile design we can proceed to the preparation of the teeth.
At the preparation stage we aim to use minimal preparation and in some cases no preparation is required. This is extremely important to maintain good health of the teeth. During the preparation a small slither of the enamel is removed and the tooth surfaces are conservatively reduced so that the tooth structure is persevered. Following the preparation, the teeth are ready for the veneers to be bonded to the tooth surfaces. Master impressions will then be taken and we will make you provisional veneers using the digital smile design to allow your mouth to become accustomed ready for the final veneers.
Under our guidance our master lab ceramist will make the final veneers, it will take approximately 2 weeks. We will arrange for you to meet our lab ceramist for the final shade and to discuss any details we wish to have in the veneers. This ensures a precise and beautiful bespoke smile designed and delivered to our spec.
At the fit stage we will remove the provisional veneers and bond the final veneers to the teeth using high strength bonding agents, any excess cement is removed and the veneers are polished ready for you to see.
Digital photographs will be taken of the veneers to present to you so that you can see the transition of the teeth before and after. Please view our smile gallery to see examples of Dr Naveed’s cases.
As with any dental treatments regular dental examinations and dental hygiene cleaning is advised as and is key maintenance for all of our dental treatments.
