The Cullen Dental Practice provides porcelain veneers to patients in Putney, London. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells placed over a tooth to conceal minor chips, cracks, and discoloration, enhancing the appearance of a patient's smile. Veneers offer a variety of cosmetic benefits, including improved confidence if you are self-conscious about your smile.
Porcelain veneers can enhance the aesthetics of your smile to boost self-esteem.
Porcelain veneers, crafted from medical-grade ceramic, are affixed to the front of teeth to dramatically improve a patient's smile by concealing minor imperfections. The placement of traditional porcelain veneers involve some preparation of the tooth, including the removal of a small amount of enamel. Impressions of the teeth are also taken.
Today, no-prep options such as LUMINEERS® are available as well. If you opt to receive LUMINEERS®, no enamel needs to be removed from the tooth, making it an ideal solution for patients who lack sufficient enamel for traditional veneers.
Porcelain veneers benefit patients who wish to correct, repair, and conceal minor dental imperfections. If you have cracked or chipped teeth, porcelain veneers can cover the damaged areas and fortify the tooth. Teeth that do not respond to professional teeth whitening may also benefit from porcelain veneers, as veneers can brighten patients' smiles. Porcelain veneers can also conceal small gaps between the teeth and correct minor alignment issues to provide a straighter, more balanced smile.
Most patients are candidates for veneers. If you have any underlying oral or periodontal health issues such as cavities or gum disease, these conditions will need to be treated prior to the placement of porcelain veneers.
With an enhanced smile, you will likely experience improved confidence and feel inclined to smile and laugh more often, improving your quality of life.
Porcelain veneers and LUMINEERS® are placed during two separate appointments. If you are receiving traditional veneers, Dr. Patrick or Moya Cullen will remove a small amount of enamel from teeth that are to be treated, and then take impressions of your teeth. If you are receiving LUMINEERS®, you may not require any enamel removal, and impressions of your teeth will be taken.
The impressions will be sent to our trusted dental lab where your custom veneers will be fabricated. It may take up to two weeks before your veneers are ready. When your veneers are completed, you will return to our office for your second appointment. Dr. Cullen will use a mild acidic solution to lightly etch the front of the tooth, creating a better surface for the bonding agent and veneers to adhere to. Dental cement will be applied to veneers, which will then be affixed to the front of your teeth. A curing light will be used to harden the cement.
Many of our patients enjoy a variety of benefits that porcelain veneers offer:
