Ashburton Dental Veneers

Woman with beautiful smileIf you have teeth that are stained, gapped, misaligned or damaged, veneers at Cambridge Dental can be the solution you’ve hoped for. They’re a simple way to enhance the appearance of your smile with a thin, tooth-coloured layer of porcelain material that’s placed on the surface of existing teeth.

We’ll transform your look over a three-appointment process. It’s quick and simple, involving preparing your teeth to receive the veneers. Then, your veneers are individually handcrafted by our experienced dental technician and returned to our practice. You’ll then return for a second fitting appointment.

What You Can Expect:

Consultation

We’ll meet with you to discuss your concerns and goals, then complete a “diagnostic wax-up” to demonstrate how your teeth will look afterward. It involves taking moulds of your teeth, then sending them to the laboratory. Our technicians will take these impressions to make a cast. Dental wax is then put onto the cast to show how the final veneers will look. You can then decide to move forward understanding your exact results.

Preparation

You’ll receive a local anaesthetic to numb the teeth and gums. We’ll prepare your existing tooth structure to seamlessly receive the veneers. Then, an impression is taken of your teeth using putty-filled trays, then given time to set. These moulds are sent to the laboratory, where our technician will handcraft each veneer. This process takes 2-3 weeks, and meanwhile, you’ll wear temporary veneers.

Fitting

We’ll remove your temporary veneers, then use a special paste to apply your brand-new veneers, allowing for slight adjustments to ensure your satisfaction. Once the best placement is determined, we’ll permanently cement the veneers into position, leaving you with the gorgeous smile of your dreams.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

The longevity of your veneers depends heavily on how you treat them. Good oral hygiene habits that involve brushing and flossing twice per day and biyearly dental examinations are essential. Refraining from biting pens or pencils, opening things with your teeth or biting nails will help ensure they last for years to come.
