When people age their teeth can chip, crack or become discoloured, although these are minor dental flaws they can have a lasting impact on a person’s confidence and self-esteem. Here at our dental practice in Glasgow we provide cosmetic dental veneers that will allow you to mask these minor cosmetic imperfections to revitalise your smile. Cosmetic dental veneers are tooth shaped and are roughly the thickness of an egg shell, these veneers are then placed on the surfaces of your teeth.
Dental veneers are a private treatment which means that you can expect there to be more time to discuss your requirements. Our dentists diagnose each and every patient before beginning the process, this allows us to determine which option will be best suited to their needs. You can expect us to talk to you about your options during your initial consultations and make recommendations, by having all of the information about cosmetic dental veneers you will then be able to make an educated decision as to what is best for you.
Cosmetic dental veneers is a simple procedure for patients in Glasgow who come to us. The first step in placing any veneer is taking an impression, once the type of veneer is selected the teeth will then be prepared for the treatment.
Taking an impression and preparing your tooth
After we have prepared your teeth we will then take a traditional impression and will get started on designing and fabricating your veneers. When preparing your teeth we will remove a small portion of the enamel from the affected teeth, this allows us to provide space for the dental prosthetic and allows us to provide a suitable bonding surface for the veneer. You can expect us to provide you with a temporary veneer in the interim, this allows us to protect the teeth until the treatment is carried out.
Designing and fabricating
Our dentists make use of the latest equipment that is available on the market when designing veneers, this allows us to provide our patients with results of an unparalleled quality.
Placing the permanent veneer
After this we will remove your temporary veneers and put the permanent veneers in their place. The permanent veneers are then secured to the teeth with dental cement and any excess dental cement will be removed. Once the resin is hardened your veneer(s) will be in place.
All of the dentists that we have at our practice are fully qualified and are highly experienced in all areas of cosmetic dental veneers so you can expect your veneers to be of an exceptional quality.
We provide competitive prices for this treatment and are able to discuss the costs associated with this treatment during a consultation. You can arrange a consultation with one of our dentists by giving us a call or by coming into our practice in Glasgow to make an appointment.
