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

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.

Happy new year to you all! 🥳🥳🥳 I truly hope you have all had the opportunity to take some time away from work and technology to spend quality time with your families, friends and loved ones. Ultimately that is what this time of year is about and for the first time in as long as I can remember I have stayed away from my laptop and phone. As a self confessed control freak and workaholic it didn’t come easily and it has been great - I highly recommend it! As everyone reflects on their past year and decade there’s no denying that like most there have been highs and lows. DentalKind was established in 2012 and the early years presented huge personal and professional challenges. I wouldn’t have been able to get though the difficult times without my amazing family, friends and team. My wife has been my rock throughout and my beautiful kids give me focus, purpose, strength and determination. My amazing team / work family have been instrumental in the practice’s growth and success. Although we are in the best place we have ever been... this is just the start of things to come! 😁 We all set goals for ourselves for the year ahead... draw visions of where we want to be in ten year’s time. It’s so important to know where you want to be and have direction to work towards. It’s even more important to have solid people around you who not only understand your vision but want to work with you to get you there. As the saying goes together we are stronger... Be positive, he honest, be kind, be humble, be grateful... God bless and hope you all get what you wish for. 🙏🏽😘💪🏽👊🏽
Bye bye black triangle! 👋🏽 This patient suffered with gum disease and after treatment it is common for gums to shrink back as they heal and ‘black triangles’ to become visible. This can be upsetting and affect one’s confidence to smile and feel good about themselves. Here we used @boutiquewhitening_ followed by composite bonding using the brand new @tokuyamadental Omnichroma composite and @bioclearmatrix system for easy, predictable and consistent results. No injections, no pain... just an amazing outcome in little time. 👌🏼
Today I was blessed with the opportunity to spend the day with my princess. Ruhi is 4 years olds now and a proper daddy’s girl (and got me wrapt round her little finger!). She’s enjoying half term and we had a fab day out in London together. During the early years of setting up the practice I was unable to take time out for these precious moments and this is the first time my daughter and I have enjoyed a proper day together. I’m counting down the days to the next one princess!👸 A big shout out to all the dads out there! 💪🏽 Back to 🦷 tomorrow! 👨🏽⚕️
Smile Makeover Case : Boutique Whitening & Six Porcelain Veneers. Carefully planned minimal preparation veneers are an excellent, long-term and predictable treatment option for managing discoloured and mildly uneven teeth. The patient was offered and also declined Invisalign and Whitening. The process: 1. Digital smile design 2. Boutique whitening 3. Trial smile 4. Preparation of teeth and temporary veneers based on new smile 5. Digital copy and photos of verified smile 6. Fitting of porcelain veneers based on the verified temporaries (here the patient liked the less detailed/textured appearance of her temporary veneers so this was carefully copied by the lab)
Great care was taken to keep the preparation minimal and within enamel, which has a proven 95% success rate in a 10 year period. I couldn’t have done it without @densign_lab who provide consistent quality work. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
