Improve the shape and colour of teeth

The use of dental veneers is a highly aesthetic way to improve the shape and colour of teeth. They may be used in conjunction with tooth whitening and after short-term orthodontic treatment.

At Glow Dental in Battersea, we use both porcelain and composite veneers as a simple quick solution to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth. They can be used to close small gaps, disguise crooked or broken teeth, or generally improve the appearance of a tooth. Veneers provide a long-lasting smile enhancement with a natural-looking finish.

Why have veneers?

Unlike tooth straightening that needs a number of months for you to see results, veneers only need a couple of appointments for us to get your new smile underway.

Thanks to modern materials, we can create thin and strong veneers that require less tooth needing to be removed. In some cases, we don’t have to treat the tooth at all.

What is involved?

We’ll first need to see you for a consultation so we can make sure your teeth and gums are perfectly healthy. We then take a digital scan of your teeth so we can create models of them. These models are used for a ‘wax-up’ where we show you a preview of how veneers can transform the appearance of your teeth.

Once you’re happy with the look that we’ve come up with together, we will prepare your teeth if you need to have a layer of enamel removed. We then take a digital scan of your teeth so we can create models.

Your veneers are crafted at the dental laboratory using the models of your teeth. When we receive your veneers, we’ll see you again for your fitting. We make sure the look is exactly what you expected before we fix the veneers using a dental adhesive.

Looking after your veneers

After fitting, it is important to keep your veneer well-maintained with regular brushing and flossing. Your dentist and hygienist will show you how to keep on top of your dental hygiene and keep a close eye on the health of your teeth and gums.

Although veneers are resilient, it is important to treat them with care, so try not to bite your fingernails, chew pen tops, or use your teeth to open anything. Also, it is probably best to steer clear of very hard foods that could cause damage to the veneer.

Visited Glow Dental for the first time today, and it's been some time since I had a dental check up. Stephen was an excellent dentist, really put me at ease, and I valued that he could not only talk me through - but also show me - the condition of my teeth and gums. He was really helpful with all my questions too.- Felicity B
