Veneers in York – Acorn Dental Practice
Beautiful veneers in York
Have you noticed any cracks or chips in your teeth? Even if such imperfections don’t cause you pain or difficulty while chewing, over time they may have a negative impact on your confidence. Fortunately, with beautiful dental veneers from Acorn Dental Practice, based in York, you’ll never hide your smile again. A veneer is a thin layer of material that is applied over the front of a tooth with an ‘acid etch’ bonding technique. The simplest veneers are fitted using composite filling material directly applied to the enamel by the dentist – a great way to see immediate results with no damage to the teeth.
Componeer is a form of composite veneer, a product designed with such care that the small imperfections due to the layers in composite typically associated with veneer teeth are far removed. The veneers are trimmed to fit each tooth and are bonded by our dentists with a seamless acid etch technique.
They can be used to change the shape of teeth as well as bring them forwards for the perfect smile.
There are countless benefits to using Componeers, including the fact that they cost less than conventional porcelain veneers. They can be used for a single, misaligned tooth or for more than one.
The Componeer boasts the advantages of composite veneers but with a stronger, more stain resistant surface.
Porcelain veneers are a beautiful, natural-looking type of veneer, custom made with only the finest porcelain and fitted with a two-stage technique. On the first visit we prepare the teeth and take an impression. On the second we fit the veneers onto the front of your teeth.
These are the newest type of porcelain veneers. They are laminate veneers, which give them extra strength.
All veneers can last several years but they can be damaged, just like natural teeth, due to an accident or trauma. The edge of the veneer may be fragile, particularly porcelain veneers, so you should try not to bite your nails or other hard materials. If you grind your teeth they may not be suitable or you may have to wear a protective night-guard to stop them getting damaged. Composite veneers and Componeers are easy to be repaired, whereas Porcelain ones are difficult to repair.
Each patient is individual and, if you decide you want veneers, your dedicated dentist will discuss the options with you, including the cost of your veneers, to identify the best solution. A separate Full Case Assessment appointment is necessary to discuss all the issues.
