What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are carefully shaped layers of lightweight porcelain or naturally coloured composite that are custom-fitted over the front surface of your teeth by our expert cosmetic dentistry team. Porcelain veneers do the same job for your teeth but, as our team will explain, also offer the benefit of protection for teeth that might already be damaged. Porcelain or composite veneers offer a natural look and exceptional durability. They can also be designed to perfectly match your existing tooth colour.
It’s important to start your smile transformation by consulting with our qualified dental team. During your initial meeting, we’ll determine whether you’re a good candidate for veneers, your goals, what you can expect during the procedure, and how to properly care for them following your treatment.

Composite & Porcelain Dental Veneers in Newbury

Smile n Shine offers different types of dental veneers based on the scope and severity of your unique oral health circumstance, including:

  • Porcelain Veneers – A porcelain veneer is a thin, translucent shell of porcelain that a dentist affixes to the front of a tooth. Many people believe porcelain veneers look more natural than composite. In addition, they have a reputation for durability, often lasting patients over a decade with good oral hygiene habits.
  • Composite Veneers – This type of veneer is crafted from a translucent, tooth-coloured, dental-grade resin. Your dentist can sculpt it, making it easy to use for repairing cracks and chips in teeth. Your dentist’s skill and technique greatly contribute to the durability and longevity of your composite veneers. Composite veneers are less invasive than porcelain but typically don’t last as long and require maintenance from time to time.

Frequently Asked Questions – Dental Veneers Treatment

If you’re interested in dental veneers, you probably have questions for our dental team. Below, we’ve answered frequently asked questions about our dental veneer treatments. We’re happy to answer any additional questions you have about veneers or any of our other comprehensive dentistry services.
Dental veneers are recommended in following cases :
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Chipped tooth
  • Minor gaps in between front teeth
  • Worn down front teeth
  • Minor improper positioning of front teeth
  • Irregularly shaped front teeth
  • As minimum amount of tooth preparation is required, maximum tooth structure is preserved, hence a conservative approach in enhancing your smile.
  • Veneers are bio compatible to gums
  • Smile can be improved with minimum amount of work
  • Appearance of teeth is improved in less amount of time
Depending on the material used and the method used different types of veneers are available like :
  1. Direct Composite veneers – Direct Composite veneers use a minimally invasive method. Teeth are prepared to receive the veneers. Composite material is directly placed on these prepared teeth by the dentist.
  2. Indirect Composite veneers – Indirect composite veneers are similar to direct composite veneers. The material used is the same but in this method the teeth are prepared. Then the veneers are prepared indirectly in a dental laboratory and then bonded to the prepared teeth. As these veneers are prepared outside the mouth, they are called indirect composite veneers.
  3. Porcelain veneers – Porcelain veneers are also indirect veneers. The teeth are prepared and an impression is made. Based on this impression, porcelain veneers are prepared in a dental laboratory. The veneers are then bonded to the prepared teeth. You will be given temporary veneers in the period required to fabricate the porcelain veneers.
  4. SmileFast veneers – SmileFast veneers use the cutting edge technology to make veneers. You can visualise the outcome before even starting the treatment. Your smile is digitally designed and a stent is prepared. The stent acts as a guide for the veneers. The material used is composite but the method with which it is done is precise and takes a minimal amount of time to place the veneers.
  • Brush your teeth two times a day and floss once a day
  • Gargle with water after every meal.
  • Brush and keep the area around the dental veneers to avoid food accumulation.
  • Visit your dentist regularly every 6 months for a routine dental check up.
Veneers typically last around five to ten years, depending on how well they’re cared for and the material they’re made of. They don’t require special care other than brushing and flossing twice daily and scheduling regular check-ups with your dentist. Six monthly professional cleaning and a regular dental examination are highly recommended for patients with veneers.
Some patients are concerned their veneers will create an unnatural smile. Our dental team works closely with the laboratory that creates your custom porcelain veneers to ensure they’re perfectly matched to your existing teeth, giving you a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
Scheduling an initial consultation with the team at Smile n Shine is a great way to get started on your smile transformation. We can help you determine your candidacy for veneers and how many are required to achieve your oral health goals. It’s usually recommended to have veneers placed in even numbers. Two, four, eight, ten, or 12 veneers give the best aesthetic results.
Brushing twice per day for two minutes, flossing daily, and wearing a mouthguard at night are great ways to protect your newly placed veneers. It’s also best to avoid eating hard foods or cracking shells with the front veneers.
