Veneers were designed to restore your teeth back to health. This means that after treatment you should be able to use your teeth as normal.
Veneers should not hinder your biting and chewing in any way. There should also be minimal changes to your speech.
Once veneers have been constructed and fitted your teeth they will be very durable and strong. In fact, they will protect the underlying tooth tissue from external acidic erosion and tooth wear. Reasons to have veneers.
How do we ensure that you can eat comfortably with your veneers?
We tackle this problem with your Trial Smile.
A Trial Smile is an extra step we incorporate during the veneer making process. It is fitted onto your teeth on day one – which is usually the teeth preparation day. After this, it usually takes two weeks to construct porcelain or laboratory-made composite veneers.
During this time you will be using your Trial Smile Veneers which have been stuck to your teeth using a semi-permanent bond. We can implement your Trial Smile at our Hertfordshire clinic.
Trial Smile Veneers are made as close to the actual planned smile design as possible. After their fitting, you will be asked to make a Trial Smile Review appointment. In this appointment, we will evaluate how you feel about your new smile and veneers. Transform your smile with us.
The Trial Smile Veneers serve two purposes:
- You are able to check out whether you are happy with the aesthetics. If you are not then we can easily make any necessary changes and adjustments. This means that your final teeth will be exactly as you want them to be. This step gives you total control of how your teeth will end up looking.
- We are able to check to see if your bite patterns are stable and harmonious. Since the Trial Smile is made of a type of plastic and it is stuck to your teeth using a semi-permanent bond only, if you were to put excessive forces on any of the veneered teeth, then they would break off at this stage. It then gives us an opportunity to re-calculate and re-check your teeth. We can then make the necessary adjustments in your final teeth to remove these damaging forces.
Teeth that are in the correct position and angulation will not cause any future problems and you will be able to eat comfortably with them.
