Veneers

Fryern Dental Practice in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire offers a range of cosmetic dental treatments, including veneers. Veneers are a popular option for those who want to enhance the appearance of their teeth, as they can address a variety of cosmetic issues, such as chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth.

At Fryern Dental Practice, the veneer process begins with a consultation with one of their experienced cosmetic dentists. During this consultation, the dentist will discuss the patient’s goals and expectations for their smile, and assess whether veneers are the right option for them.

If veneers are deemed suitable, the next step is to prepare the teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel from the surface. This allows the veneers to fit seamlessly over the teeth without appearing bulky. Impressions of the teeth are then taken, and custom-made veneers are fabricated to fit the unique contours of each patient’s smile.

What Our Patients Say

Once the veneers are ready, the dentist will carefully bond them to the teeth using a strong dental adhesive. The result is a natural-looking, beautiful smile that can last for many years with proper care.

At Fryern Dental Practice, the team is dedicated to providing high-quality cosmetic dental care in a comfortable, welcoming environment. Patients can trust that they are in good hands when they choose Fryern Dental Practice for their veneers or other cosmetic dental needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Veneers are thin porcelain or composite resin shells that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of teeth, improving their appearance by changing their shape, size, and colour.

Veneers are applied in two steps: First, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front surface of the tooth, then an impression is taken and sent to a dental laboratory where the veneers are custom-made. Once the veneers are ready, they are bonded to the teeth using a special adhesive.

Veneers can last anywhere from 7-20 years, depending on the type of veneer, the care taken, and the individual’s oral hygiene habits.

Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of slightly crooked teeth, but they are not a substitute for orthodontic treatment for severely misaligned teeth.

While veneers don’t require special care, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing regularly and visiting the dentist for routine check-ups.

Veneers can actually help protect sensitive teeth by covering the exposed dentin. However, it’s important to talk to your dentist about your specific situation and any concerns you may have.
