Dental Veneers Chippenham

Veneers are hand-crafted thin layers of porcelain which are applied to the front surface of a tooth to cover and mask irregularities, improving its appearance and disguising imperfections.

Veneers are used as part of cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of your teeth in a short time.

London Road Dental Practice in Chippenham are experts in the application of veneers, which provide wonderful results on uneven, chipped, crooked or discoloured teeth.

The dentists at London Road have even used porcelain veneers successfully to treat gaps in teeth and protruding teeth. Within a matter of days you could have straight, even teeth without having to undergo orthodontics or wear braces.

Veneers are usually used in conjunction with tooth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry to ensure a dazzling smile. The central front teeth are veneered as necessary, while the teeth further back receive a whitening treatment to improve the whole appearance.

Having veneers is relatively quick and painless, and is accomplished in just two appointments.

At the first appointment the dentist will take an impression of the teeth to be veneered, prepare the surface of the teeth to receive the veneers, and make a temporary veneer. The temporary veneers will be applied as an interim measure, while the laboratory crafts your bespoke porcelain veneers.

When the veneers are ready you return to the dentist to have the temporary veneers removed and the laboratory crafted veneers applied to your teeth with a special bonding agent.

Both appointments are pain-free and should take around an hour to 90 minutes, depending on how many veneers are involved.

Once in place veneers have a natural appearance and can be cared for the same as ordinary teeth. Teeth which have veneers applied are still subject to decay and may be extra sensitive to hot and cold. In general though a veneered tooth looks and feels like a normal tooth and should last for 10 to 15 years with good care.

While thin porcelain veneers provide a quick and easy smile make-over, they are not always suitable for everyone. An alternative may be to have crowns fitted to your teeth.

At London Road Dental Practice we will assess your needs and advise you on what treatments are recommended to achieve the best cosmetic results and maintain the best oral health.
