Are your teeth stained, chipped or not perfectly aligned?
Porcelain veneers could be the perfect cosmetic dentistry solution to fix your smile. Dental veneers are a minimally-invasive technique which can be used to cover minor imperfections and make your teeth more uniform in appearance, giving you the smile that you deserve.
Over the last six months Ive been going to Ikon Dental on a regular basis.
My experience so far has been absolutely amazing. The reception area is welcoming and I am always greeted by a smile.
The staff at Ikon Dental are extremely polite and friendly.
The process to get dental veneers takes place over two appointments following your consultation.
Your first visit to our Ealing dental practice will be to prepare your teeth for your bespoke veneers. Anaesthetic will be provided as we file down some of the natural enamel of your teeth. It may also be possible for you to have conscious sedation if you are particularly anxious.
Once the teeth have been prepared, digital impressions will be taken of them. These will be sent to our partner lab, where they will be used to create your veneers from the highest quality porcelain. They will also be glazed in a shade to match your existing teeth, enhancing the overall appearance of your smile. Temporary veneers will be fitted to enable you to carry on using your teeth.
Once the veneers are ready, you’ll be invited in for your second appointment where their fit will be checked before they are secured in place, completing your treatment.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-coloured pieces of porcelain. They closely resemble fingernails but are much more durable.
They are bonded to the enamel of your natural teeth to cover any minor imperfections, improve the colour of your teeth or make them look longer or closer together – whatever you need to improve the appearance of your smile. Before they can be fitted, a little of the natural enamel of your teeth must first be removed. This is done using anaesthetic (and conscious sedation if you need it).
We take digital impressions of the teeth, which are sent to a leading London dental laboratory and are used to create the perfect shape and size veneer. Once this is ready, patients return to our practice to have them fitted. Depending on your requirements, you can have anything from a single veneer to a complete set.
Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a variety of different cosmetic issues affecting your smile, including:
Quality caring dentist with excellent staff throughout
Before you can receive dental veneers, you will first need to attend a complimentary consultation appointment at our Ealing, West London dental practice. This will be used to assess your suitability for this treatment. Some things that could stop you being a good candidate for dental veneers include outstanding dental work, grinding your teeth (bruxism) and smoking.
In most cases, a veneer will last for between 5 and 10 years before a replacement is required. Your IKON dentist will advise you of the best way to take care of your veneers so that they remain functional and attractive for as long as possible. This will involve brushing and flossing regularly and attending regular appointments with your IKON dental team.
Since enamel doesn’t regenerate, any teeth that have had enamel removed to make space for veneers will always require them to be covered in this way.
Nail biting is a very common habit that can be damaging to veneers, along with any other habits in which you might use your teeth for something other than eating – such as chewing straws or opening bags with your teeth.
