Porcelain Dental Veneers at Fulham Dental Centre

Veneers are custom-made thin shells of either porcelain or composite resin material which a dentist fits over the front area of the teeth to improve their appearance. At Fulham Dental Centre, you can get dental veneers for your misaligned, stained, broken, chipped, worn down or uneven teeth.

Uses of porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are cosmetic dental restorations you can use for the following.

  • Repair teeth damage caused by bruxism
  • Change the colour of the teeth
  • Improve the teeth shape
  • Fill gaps between the teeth
  • Repair broken or chipped teeth
  • Fix discolouration that teeth whitening cannot

Process of fitting dental veneers

You can get composite resin veneers during one appointment. When you visit our clinic, our cosmetic dentist will take your teeth x-rays, then file down a small part of your teeth before applying the veneers.

For porcelain veneers fitting, our dentist will take your teeth impression after examining your teeth and the x-rays, which we will send to the lab. Your porcelain veneers will be ready within a week or two, but you will use temporary dental veneers while waiting for the permanent ones.

When your porcelain veneers are ready, our cosmetic dentist will check if the colour matches what you need and the fit of the veneer. Our dentist will then clean the surface of your teeth and etch the surface to make the veneers stick better. The dentist will attach the porcelain veneer to your teeth using special adhesive material then harden it with UV light.

You would have a follow-up appointment after a couple of weeks for our dentist to check if the placement of the veneers was perfect. The dentist may make some adjustments if necessary.

If you care for your dental veneers properly and have good oral hygiene habits like flossing and brushing daily, your dental veneers can last for about 5 – 10 years.

Caring for your porcelain veneers

If you want the veneers to last for a long time, you should follow these care tips.

  • While participating in any sports, ensure you wear a mouthguard
  • If you grind or clench your teeth at night, ensure you wear a splint or retainer to prevent the veneers from getting damaged
  • Avoid opening packages with your teeth
  • Avoid biting down or chewing objects like pens, ice, pencils, and fingernails
  • Avoid chewing foods with your front teeth. Eat hard foods and chew with your back teeth
