Venners offer an affordable and attractive solution to deal with tooth loss, discolouration, or damage from decay. With our veneers and smile design services, you can restore your smile’s appearance and cover up tooth imperfections and discolouration.
There are two major types of dental veneers. Composite veneers consist of a durable composite resin moulded to fit the exact dimensions of your teeth. Composite veneers are cheaper and generally don’t require removing any existing tooth materials. Porcelain veneers consist of hard artificial porcelain shell that resists staining. Porcelain veneers are extremely durable, but placing them securely requires removing some tooth material.
Both composite and porcelain veneers have their advantages and disadvantages. At the EDentist clinic, we can help you pick an option that fits your needs and budget.
The process for getting dental veneers typically takes a few days to a few weeks to complete. At your first appointment, your dentist will order x-rays and take a mould of your teeth to create permanent veneers that custom fit your teeth. If you are getting permanent porcelain veneers, the dentists will also remove about half a millimetre of your tooth to make space for the veneers.
During the next appointment, the dentist will affix the veneers to your teeth using a cementing agent and UV light catalyst. It typically takes about two weeks for veneers to feel normal and return to normal sensitivity levels.
Our dental veneers in Cantebury are a non-invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure and do not require surgery or anaesthesia. After affixing veneers, you will be able to go home and maintain your normal daily schedule. At EDentist, we offer both composite and porcelain dental veneers, including no-prep Lumineer dental veneers. Our smile design services can completely rework your mouth to improve your dental appearance.
Dental veneers are a permanent procedure to improve your tooth shape, appearance, and colour. You won’t be able to remove veneers after the initial application, and veneers last for years with proper care.
