Dental veneers or teeth veneers consist of aesthetic porcelains or tooth coloured filling materials, which are bonded to the teeth to improve the smile. They are long lasting and result in an extremely pleasing result.
If you decide to go for treatment with dental veneers in Essex we would first complete a full detailed examination. We would ensure your gums are healthy and then perform a digital smile analysis.
A ‘mock up’ smile makeover can be made by a cosmetic dental lab and this can be transferred into your own mouth for you to ‘trial’.
Porcelain Veneers in Essex
For porcelain veneer treatment we may need to prepare the teeth minimally and painlessly, leaving you with great looking temporary veneers. After 2 weeks you return and we remove the temporaries, try-in the porcelain teeth veneers and once we have checked that you are pleased with the final restorations, we then definitively bond them on for you to enjoy your new smile!
For the ‘direct’ composite veneer treatment we can layer the materials onto your teeth with no preparation over one visit. Our dentists recommend these mostly for the younger patients since they need no tooth reduction, hence very conservative in their approach.
If you’re looking for dental veneers in Essex please get in touch and we’ll be happy to schedule an appointment with you.
Long lasting beautiful result
Can change your smile completely, increasing self confidence and quality of life
Not life-long and may require replacement after 10 years
Need excellent hygiene and maintenance
Porcelain is fragile and can chip or fracture if you do not take care, i.e. biting nails or pens
Composite may wear or stain, however is easy to repair and polish
What exactly is involved in the procedure of having dental veneers fitted?
As with any other cosmetic dental procedure, the first part involves a consultation and examination by your dentist so that they can get a better understanding for what you require and what the treatment options are. At DentalKind, we consider this to be the most important part of the whole process. It also allows your practitioner to discuss any concerns you might have. Your dentist will explain the treatment procedure to you and also give you an accurate guide as to the likely cost of your treatment.
Before your veneers are designed and manufactured, your dentist will need to reshape and prepare the front surfaces of your teeth so that they can accommodate the veneers. In order that you do not feel anything during the procedure you will have your teeth and gums numbed with a painless local anaesthetic.
Your dentist will then shave off a tiny part of the front surface of your teeth using a special dental drill. The amount of the front surface of your teeth that is removed is minimal.
Your dentist will then take an impression or mould (copy) of your prepared teeth. This involves taking an imprint of your teeth similar to how you would leave footprints in sand. This is done by placing special dental putty into your mouth on a tray, pushing it into your teeth and waiting for it to set.
This mould of your teeth, known as an “impression”, is then sent to a dental laboratory. This impression is used by dental technicians to cast an accurate model of your teeth which can be used as a guide to fabricate your new veneers. Normally this process takes between one and three weeks.
Your dentist will fit you with some temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth while you’re waiting for your actual veneers to be fabricated. The temporary veneers may be based on a ‘mock-up’ or ‘diagnostic wax-up’ to allow you to leave with your new smile, just in a temporary material.
At your second appointment your dentist will fit your new veneers to your teeth. Firstly, the dentist will just sit the veneers over your teeth to see how they look when you smile.
After checking that you’re completely pleased and happy with the result your dentist will carefully bond the veneer in place. Your teeth are cleaning and the preparations will be etched (roughened) with a special acid gel so that they provide a good surface for the dental cement to stick to. Cement is then applied to the back of the veneers and they are cemented into place. Then a special curing light is used to activate the dental cement so that it bonds the veneer permanently to the front surface of your prepared tooth. Any excess cement is usually trimmed away and polished to leave a beautiful and natural looking restoration.
Your dentist will show you how to clean and maintain the veneers to ensure a long-lasting result.

🔥🔥REPOST from @ohabioh 🔥🔥 So as some of you guys have seen I have been going through my @invisalign_uk journey since March. I have always wanted to straighten my teeth, especially one that was super wonky at the front. It made me not want to smile & I would always put my hand over my mouth if I laughed etc. I want to do a thorough video talking about everything but for now this post will do! I used @dentalkind in Billericay who luckily are just around the corner from where I work!! 😁 Sunil has done such a great job on my final touches too, filling in my last few gaps, straightening up and tweaking them to perfection. I still need to have my whitening done which I’m double excited for. If you guys are thinking about having Invisalign through dentalkind, feel free to pop me over a message & I can give you information on how to receive your free consultation (there is absolutely no commitment or pressure at this point) and if you decide to go further, I can also offer you money off your treatment! So my DM’s are open to anyone who wants anymore info 🖤 I need to also find a before pic but it’s proving difficult as I never used to smile showing off my ‘bad’ tooth side haha 🤨
Dentist, please give me a 🦷. This lady had a visible space, did not like smiling and could not afford dental implants. We work with our patients to find suitable solutions to work within their budget. Here we have a standard porcelain-metal adhesive bridge and this was all completed in 2 weeks. This process involved no drilling and should last many years to come. More aesthetic metal free options also exist (at a higher fee). A positive outcome and another smile improved in time for the weekend! 😁
Composite Smile Makeover . This young lady wanted to improve her smile and didn’t want to undergo orthodontic treatment. After discussion of her options we agreed to place eight composite veneers. . Several photos and a 3D scan were used in a digital smile design process. We work with our labs to create the ideal proportions and a result that was in harmony with her face. Thanks to @densign_lab for the amazing digital wax ups. . The treatment was completed over 3 visits... 1. Placement 2. Refinement 3. Review. . Happy patient 😁 Happy dentist 👨⚕️
Here we replaced 2 missing teeth using an all ceramic bridge for a natural ✅ comfortable ✅ strong ✅ and aesthetic ✅ outcome. The patient did not want to have dental implant treatment. Process: (1) Designing the bridge via a digital wax up process (2) Careful preparation of the teeth to support the bridge (3) Test drive the bridge design with a provisional bridge (4) Final zirconia bridge delivered using a copy of the provisional (NO adjustments were required) Thanks to @densign_lab for the lovey result. Always consistent work from these guys! 👌🏼
It’s always a pleasure to deliver a result like this. Two ultra realistic porcelain crowns to create a seamless and natural result. Thanks to @byrnesdental for the amazing outcome all in just one take! 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 #ceramic #porcelain #metallfree #crown #veneer #beauty #seamless #perfect #real #natural #cosmeticdentistry #teamwork #essex #billericay #brentwood #basildon #shenfield #ingatestone
