This will be over the course of a few weeks.
Step by Step Process
At your first appointment, your dentist will complete a full assessment of the general health of your teeth and gums.
This is to establish if any other dental issues need treating before the veneer work starts.
During this consultation, people often ask if teeth whitening is a better solution than veneers, however this will only alter the colour of your teeth and not the shape. Find out more.
Step 1: Creating your new smile with exceptional temporary teeth
Your cosmetic dentist may need to prepare your teeth prior to veneers being fitted.
There are various reasons why people get veneers, including having chipped, cracked or even gappy teeth.
This at our practice is absolutely minimal, in fact this is not always necessary as often certain teeth may need minimal or no preparation.
An impression will be taken of your teeth to assist the laboratory technicians to handcraft your veneers with precision.
This is to ensure that your veneers fit perfectly.
At this age we create exceptional looking transition or temporary veneers which give you a fantastic visualisation and preview of your final look of your new smile. Contact London Cosmetic Dentistry.
