The use of dental veneers to improve the appearance of teeth continues to grow in popularity, with more and more people experiencing the many benefits. Savernake Dental offer a full veneers service, carried out by our trusted and experienced team of dentists and dental nurses – from a single tooth to an entire makeover for your mouth, we can offer a safe, painless and lasting solution.
A dental veneer is a thin layer of restorative material that, placed and glued securely to the surface of a tooth, can improve its colour and shape. This cosmetic dentistry process was created by Charles Pincus in 1928 – Pincus was a dentist employed by a film crew to temporarily alter the appearance of the teeth of actors. He and others improved the process, which is now widely used around the world and recognised as an incredibly safe and effective dental procedure.
Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of damaged teeth or simply to create a better looking smile. The process is carried out over just two appointments and offer guaranteed lasting results. At the first appointment, the edges of your teeth and gums will be fully prepared for the veneers before impressions are taken. These will be used to individually construct your unique veneers which will be fitted at the following appointment. Between these appointments, your teeth will generally look and feel the same – some patients report slight sensitivity but this is rare and will alleviate once treatment is completed.
Dental veneers are a fantastic way to quickly create or restore the appearance of the teeth. For more information and to book your detailed initial consultation with our dental team, please call 01672 512418 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
