A new lease on life and your smile
If you’re someone who is self-conscious about your smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth, dental veneers from the John Street Dental team could soon have you beaming.
Dental veneers are one of the most popular ways to achieve a beautiful smile. They can easily correct imperfections and let you be confident about your smile.
Dental veneers are thin, finely crafted shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of a tooth. Receiving veneers will require two appointments at John Street Dental; the first will be to prepare the teeth receiving the veneers and the second to place them.
A small amount of tooth enamel is removed so when your veneers are placed your teeth still look completely natural and not oversize. Then a detailed impression mould is made and sent to a dental technician in a laboratory who creates your veneers.
At your second appointment your veneers are checked for fit and comfort, any required adjustments are made before your veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth.
When placed, your veneers look like your natural surrounding teeth. Although extremely fine, porcelain veneers are quite strong, durable and stain resistant.
Composite veneers are made using a special white resin material that is coloured to the shade of your natural tooth enamel.
This type of dental veneer is usually used to fix small tooth imperfections like small chips or cracks in the teeth or as a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers. Composite veneers have the advantage and convenience of being completed in a single appointment visit.
The composite material is placed in layers and hardened by a special UV light. It is then sculpted to the perfect shape to blend seamlessly with your surrounding natural teeth.
With correct care and regular check-up appointments at John Street Dental, your porcelain and composite veneers will enable you to enjoy a beautiful smile for many years.
