Our Veneers Procedure at 75 Harley Street, London
The veneers procedure usually requires three appointments at our 75 Harley Street, London clinic but we sometimes recommend that patients attend a final, fourth appointment to ensure that their veneers procedure has settled down and is giving the natural feel and look we would expect. The steps in the veneers process include an initial London Harley Street consultation, the careful preparation of your mouth and teeth for the fitting veneers procedure and the placing of the final veneers themselves. All aspects of this veneers process are essential for a satisfactory and aesthetically pleasing result.
Veneers Procedure 1 – Diagnosis and Treatment Plan
Your initial, first veneers appointment at 75 Harley Street, London is very important part of the veneers process. During this appointment our specialist London Harley Street team will ask you to explain any concerns you might have about your teeth and describe the results you are after. Your specialist London Harley Street dentist will examine your teeth and ascertain the suitability of dental veneers as a solution to the issues you have mentioned and to any other concerns that might present themselves. During this initial appointment our London Harley Street team will be only too happy to answer your questions about getting veneers or the veneers process. They will explain the results you can expect from your veneers procedure and also tell you about any limitations of your treatment, for example, although veneers last for up to 30 years, they will eventually need replacing. If your Harley Street consultant feels it is necessary, we may also take x-rays of your mouth at this appointment.
Veneers Procedure 2 – Tooth Preparation and Temporary Veneers
Once you are happy about the veneers process and the prospect of getting veneers our team will invite you back to 75 Harley Street, London for an appointment that will prepare your teeth for the final veneers procedure. During this important appointment in the veneers process your London Harley Street dentist will remove a wafer thin layer of enamel from the surface of any teeth that are going to be fitted with veneers. This part of the veneer process sounds painful but it is not and your Harley Street expert will decide whether or not a local anaesthetic is recommended. Once the enamel has been trimmed to ensure a strong and well-fitting bond with your final veneers, the next step in the veneers process is to take an impression of your teeth. This impression is sent to the laboratory to ensure that your final veneers are a perfect fit for your teeth. The last veneers procedure undertaken at this second appointment is the fitting of colour-matched, temporary veneers to ensure that your teeth are protected until your final veneers are fitted.
Veneers Procedure 3 – Fitting and Bonding of Final Veneers
Once your bespoke, final veneers have been carefully prepared and sent back from the laboratory we will invite you to a third appointment at 75 Harley Street, London. During this appointment our Harley Street team will remove the temporary veneers that have been protecting your teeth and undertake a specialist veneer process that will bond your bespoke, final veneers to your teeth. This part of the veneers procedure will be the most satisfying for both you and our London Harley Street team because it is at this stage that the final results will be seen and you will start to enjoy your new smile.
