Dr. Ian Buckle is a highly trained cosmetic dentist in Liverpool area, offering a full range of cosmetic dentistry options including porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can be used to make subtle or dramatic changes to your smile. They will give you a new smile that will blend with your natural appearance and feel comfortable. For many patients, dental veneers can also improve long term dental health when addressing teeth imperfections.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
are a popular treatment for improving the appearance of the smile. A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is permanently bonded to the front of a tooth to enhance its aesthetics and function. Porcelain veneers can be used to cover a single tooth or multiple teeth as part of a smile transformation. Our Liverpool dentist office uses porcelain veneers to achieve the following:
- Enhance the colour of teeth
- Improve the spacing or alignment of teeth
- Augment the shape or length of teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
Porcelain Veneer Process
The process for placing porcelain veneers is actually quite simple. Dr. Buckle will begin with a comprehensive evaluation in our Liverpool cosmetic dentistry office. This will include a physical examination of the teeth, gums, jaw joints, and other support structures of the mouth. With a clear picture of your condition, needs and aesthetic goals, Dr. Buckle will design a personalized treatment plan.
Your teeth will then be prepared by removing a minimal amount of tooth surface structure for optimal, comfortable placement of the porcelain veneers. We are careful to be as conservative as possible in our preparation methods. A digital impression of the teeth will be taken and used to create the porcelain veneers.
You may be given provisional dental veneers to wear and protect the teeth while your final restorations are being made. Once the final porcelain veneers arrive from the dental laboratory, Dr. Buckle will check them for fit and colour and then permanently bond them to the teeth at his Liverpool dentist office.
