Dental Veneers at Dental Cosmetics Borehamwood Hertfordshire

Hello and welcome to We are situated in Elstree, Hertfordshire and My name is Dr Neeta Patel. I am one of the co-principals here at Cornerhouse.

The following presentation is all about veneers.
If your front teeth are stained or dark after root canal work, chipped, or crooked, veneers can give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth preparation.

A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain which is placed on the front surface of the tooth. The analogy we like to use to describe a veneer,is to say that it is similar to a false finger nail.

They require an expert ceramic technician to craft them into natural and healthy looking restorations.

They are attached to the teeth by a special adhesive and once cemented are very strong. We can reproduce the aesthetics and colour to match to the adjacent teeth where necessary.

Veneers can also be used to close small gaps where orthodontic treatment is not possible and also if one tooth is slightly out of line then a veneer can bring it back into the smile. Erosion of the enamel from dietary products and overbrushing can leave teeth with grooves and weak incisal edges.

Veneers can be placed to cover and so protect the teeth from further damage and in turn you will be able to smile with confidence!

Direct veneers can also be placed on teeth where the material used is called composite. This is similar to the white filling material used in cavities.

The veneer is made and shaped directly onto the tooth surface and cured with a light to set it onto the tooth. Again discoloration can be masked and also small chipped areas repaired too.

They are also life-like in appearance when placed by a skilled dentist and can avoid in most cases any tooth preparation.

Smile makeovers involve placing up to 8/10 veneers on the front and side teeth. This is only embarked upon if most of the teeth are stained with old fillings or maybe they are too crowded and one does not wish to have braces. We can create that perfect smile for you!
