Ceramic Laminate Veneers


One of the most conservative and predictable treatment for smile designing is by the use of veneers. A veneer is a thin shell of plastic or ceramic which is bonded to the front surface of the prepared tooth to protect and provide esthetics for a person’s smile.

Veneers can be used to close spaces between teeth and repair chipped, stained, misshapen or crooked teeth.

After an initial consultation, your dentist will prepare the tooth (or teeth). This involves shaping and roughing a tiny amount of enamel surface of the tooth, the same thickness that the veneer will be, to ensure the tooth stays the same size. This prepares the tooth surface for bonding the veneer in place later. The preparation should not cause any pain, but in some cases, a local anaesthetic may be given to prevent any discomfort.

An impression is then taken of the mouth, which will be given to a dental technician for them to build your bespoke veneer(s) to the required shape and size. A colour shade is taken of the adjacent teeth to ensure the veneer(s) blend in naturally. If several veneers are being made, they can be made to a lighter shade, as required, to give a brighter smile.

After preparation the tooth will look the same but will feel less smooth. In some cases, a temporary cover may be placed over the tooth, until the veneer is ready for fitting.

Once the veneer(s) are ready, any temporary cover is easily removed, and the veneer(s) will be tested in place to ensure there are no imperfections, before they are cemented into place. Adhesive is applied to the back of the veneer, then as it is placed into position, a bright light known as a curing light, is used to set it.

Your dentist will check to ensure that you are happy with the veneer(s) and that your bite is correct, making any small adjustment that may be needed.

Veneers should last for many years. Your dentist will be able to estimate how long your individual veneer should last. However, veneers can be broken, chipped and cracked the same way as natural teeth can. Small chips may be able repairable, or the veneer can be replaced.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that an Oral Implantologist like Dr. Vikas Gowd places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, failure of endodontics, an injury, or some other reason.
