Porcelain Dental Veneers Process
What exactly is involved in the procedure of having dental veneers fitted?
Here at DentalKind in Billericay, we offer porcelain veneer treatment.
- As with any other cosmetic dental procedure, the first part involves consultation and examination by your dentist so that they can get a better understanding of 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 the 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.

FAQ's about Porcelain Dental Veneers Process
Why patient's love DentalKind
I can’t recommend Sajni at FaceKind by DentalKind enough! Such professionalism and amazing service, from both Sajni and the Front of House Team! Very welcoming and booking was so easy! Sajni was thorough in her consultation, completely explaining the treatment to me and the outcome. She was more than happy to answer any questions I had and really helped me achieve the desired results. I am so pleased I had my treatments with Sajni at FaceKind/DentalKind, and will definitely be going back in the future. If you’re thinking of booking in, you should go ahead.. I am sure you will be so happy you did 🙂
I found on dental page facebook kind I made a reservation for teeth cleaning and a check up I was amazed and very satisfied when I saw how professional they are and high technology, I recommend this clinic and I can only thank them from the bottom of my heart
I started my journey with Invisalign with Sunil, from the very first time I met him I felt at ease, he took his time to explain everything to me clearly, my teeth are now perfectly straight! I’ve also had them whitened and edge bonding on a few teeth, with also 2 veneers. I’m very pleased with the results, I would highly recommend dental kind to all my friends and family. All the staff there are very friendly and helpful. Thank you Sunil and your team for giving me the smile I always wanted 😊
Amazing service, ultra clean and modern surgery with friendly staff and extremely knowledgeable practitioners. Highly recommend this wonderful surgery
The staff are super efficient and friendly, nothing is too much trouble and this is reflected in the quality of the service. My whole family are now registered including my two children. They explain everything clearly and put me at ease. I would wholeheartedly recommend this practice.
Fantastic service provided by Rahul Patel and team, am so happy with the final result. I had Invisalign which included whitening, refinements and a fixed bar at the end all within the plan. Reception are always very friendly and helpful. Thank you!
Had the full works done at Dentalkind (Invisalign, wisdom teeth removal, bonding and whitening) and could not be happier. I have since made the switch to Dentalkind for all my dental needs, including check ups, hygienist appointments etc. All staff in the practice are incredibly friendly and will welcome you by name everytime you walk through the door too.Incredible customer service and great quality results, I have not stopped smiling since!
Incredibly professional, high levels of care and attention, excellent technology to support treatment programme. Sound advice with no pressure and options presented for patient's choice. Very proficient team in place throughout the practice. Brilliant follow up and after care. Would not hesitate to recommend. Experience based on treatment received for 2 cracked teeth, resulting in one root canal and one dental implant.
I’ve been a client at Dentalkind for about 6 years after a recommendation. Never have I felt so comfortable about going to the dentist! The treatment I have received has been fantastic. I went to improve the look of my smile and opted for fixed braces after a review and discussion. I smile with confidence now and go back regularly for hygienist and check up appointments. Everyone is friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend
A very clean and tidy dentist! Very polite and very helpful
Sunil and the team are amazing. WouldRecommend them 100 times over.Best dentist in Essex.
I have a great experience at DentalKind at every visit. The team are extremely welcoming and always make me feel comfortable. They also go the extra mile to make sure that I’m well informed during the entire process. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for top quality dental treatment!
Great service as usual. Friendly and helpful staff , especially Jess who fitted my crown. Thoroughly recommend DentalKind.
I recently visited the practice and had my teeth cleaned by Chloe the hygienist. She was excellent and made me feel calm and welcome. Truly the best dental practice I’ve ever been to and I will definitely be going back!
Many thanks to Sunil at Dentalkind for seeing me at short notice. Great service, relaxing surroundings and friendly staff.
Awesome dentist and practice!I highly recommend Sunil and the DentalKind team! I have been visiting Sunil and Kerry (hygienist) for a number of years for various treatments and hygienist appointments. I am always very pleased with the care and quality of service provided. Both always take the time to explain everything properly and provide helpful guidance for maintaining good dental health.Thank you to Sunil and the DentalKind team for being fab! Keep up the awesome work - I will definitely not be going anywhere else!
Want to say a big thank you to everyone at DentalKind. Always a great experience when I visit the practice and my teeth have never looked better 😊
I have received treatments at Dental Kind for around three years. I first approached them for Invisiline teeth straightening, having very overcrowded teeth which was causing a front tooth to be pushed out completely! I followed the Invisiline programme and within 9 months my teeth were beautifully straight, leaving me to wonder why I had left it for so many years. They also included a whitening treatment which left me feeling more confident smiling than I ever had before. Dental Kind is a family run but incredibly professional and knowledgeable practice so I felt confident left in their hands throughout the journey. I was so pleased I also used the services of Face Kind for minor cosmetic improvements and was just as impressed. I still visit both Dental and Face Kind for dental and cosmetic services and would recommend their services to all!
Absolutely amazing! I couldn't recommend Dental kind enough. Thank you all so much
Sunil and his team at DentalKind are highly professional and friendly. I am very happy with the service I have received over the years both with routine checkups and more complex treatments such as implants. The approach is personal, caring and the work is of high quality. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
I recently changed my dentist to Dental Kind Billericay following recommendations from colleagues to see Sunil. I went for my first dental appointment and now I am having Invisalign - my friend and family already comment on my teeth and I haven’t finished yet. I also see the hygienist Kerry there regularly too and she has explained everything to me to help keep my teeth healthy. The whole team are brilliant and the service is really personalised and they make you feel relaxed and reassured. They go above and beyond at all times to make everything work for me. They all keep in contact over the phone and email. Kelsey has been fab. I would recommend them to everyone.
Dr Sunil is friendly, reassuring and incredibly professional and knowledgeable. On my first appointment when I came for natural teeth whitening, Dr Sunil asked if I suffered with neck pain. I had been suffering with neck pain for years, and Dr Sunil told me that I had a really tight bite which could mean I clench my jaw in my sleep without me realising. He worked to get me a shield fitted correctly to wear at night and now my neck pain has decreased incredibly! No other dentist had ever picked up on it.So not only do I have beautiful naturally white teeth, I also have less neck pain! Win win!I would highly recommend Dr Sunil and his team as they are all so welcoming and professional.
Sunil and the whole team are so welcoming and kind. I first visited after breaking my front tooth, Sunil accommodated me immediately. I have nothing but good words to say about the initial treatment and the subsequent course of treatment I have received. I am coming to the end of Invisalign treatment which has really straightened my teeth and improved my smile. Sunil and the team have transformed my smile and improved my confidence.If you are nervous about going to the dentist, then Dentalkind is the surgery for you. If I could give ten stars I would!!
I’ve recently completed my Invisalign journey with Dental Kind. Dr.Sunil and team were super helpful, reassuring and friendly throughout the whole process. I could not recommend Dental kind practice enough! I’m more than happy with my results and I can’t wait to continue to go to see Dr.Sunil and team for future dentistry🤩
My wife and I have used Sunil at Dental Kind for a number of years now. We have both had Invisalign treatment and I have also had composite bonding. Seeing as I have referred friends and family to Sunil is a testament to the professionalism and overall competence within his field. Highly recommended *****
Dentalkind is an absolute fantastic dentist. As a very nervous patient and having to have an extraction Sunil put me at ease and removed my wisdom tooth pain free. All the staff are amazing and really helpful. Can’t recommend dentalkind enough.
I highly recommend DentalKind in Billericay and want to say a big thank you to Sunil Chudasama for the great dental treatment I received. I had a wisdom tooth out and it was completely pain free.
I would highly recommend DentalKind based in Billericay. Albeit a private practice they have always been kind and considerate. Since I have been going there which has been quite a lot over the last 3 years I have been so pleased with the dentistry they have performed on my teeth. They made sure I was not in any pain and always follows up.
I can't recommend Facekind & Dentalkind enough to people - the feel of the practise is so friendly and I feel they go above and beyond to explain things / make sure you're happy. I see Saj for all my skincare help and she has helped me become so much more confident "in my skin" so thank you! I also saw Rahul for my invisalign and composite bonding - the results were amazing!
Very efficient organisation with txt reminders, pleasant waiting area and friendly staff. Explained things well.
I’ve been going to see Sunil for about 5 years and every time it’s a pleasure. He’s warm and friendly yet professional and informative. He never pressurises me into any treatment and always does his best to keep the cost as low as possible. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now.
I have visited other practices previously for consultations, and never took the plunge in having the procedures I wanted, but I had no problem in making the decision to have them done with FaceKind.Saj instantly made me feel comfortable. She is so welcoming and I didn't feel judged at all. She made me feel like a person and not a 'sale'. Not at all pushy, and clearly very knowledgeable in her field. I cannot recommend her/ Facekind enough.Thank you!
Such a lovely practice! My dentist Rahul is very patient and thoroughly informs me of my treatment. Never feel rushed, everyone is super friendly too 😊
Fantastic practice and amazing results. Could not recommend more highly. Saj is always professional and gives great advice as to how to achieve the desired outcome.
I am a very nervous patient and I think Dr Suniland his staff are fantastic . They really do havea very caring and compassionate attitude
Fantastic friendly,caring staff. I wouldn't go anywhere else now.I suffer servere Anxiety and panic attacks so I had sedation. Fantastic experience.Love these Guys.
I am very nervous with dentistry but Sunil is professional, patient and explains everything. I would not hesitate to recommend him and his practice and won't be going any where else now.
A Very professional, and excellent service that is offered by Dentalkind.Highly recommended, and has now become a fixture for my own person dental care
Saw Chloe the hygienist today . Very welcoming, kind and patient. Put me at ease and talked through all the procedures. Very friendly receptionists. Highly recommend this practice.
The team are excellent, so friendly.My 3 year old and 1 year old had a check up. I was so impressed with the way in which Dr Rahul and the nurse treated the kids, they were so good with them. I loved the little finishing touches too - the bags they got - the tv showing cartoons on the ceiling! I really was so happy!! Thank you!!
Had a tooth extraction the dentist and his assistant were very professional and put me at ease. Would recommend.
Had a toothache for 3 weeks. My dentist wanted to fill the tooth but wanted to wait a week!The pain was so bad I found Dental Kind on Google and contacted them, they rang me back and we're the most helpful receptionists i have ever met. Their customer service is sublime!Dental Appointment booked and was in with Rachel, she told me my tooth was decayed badly, I decided on extraction and it was done in 20 minutes! Rachel has to be the best Dentist i have EVER used in my 46 years!If your doubting please don't this practice is the best I have ever had the pleasure of using, it might cost but it was the most well spent money I have ever been charged!Use Dental Kind and feel appreciated and validated.100% Recommendation from me!
Dental Kind are absolutely brilliant and I wouldn’t go anywhere else now. Had my treatment July 2020 and the service is of the highest standard I’ve ever experienced. The staff are friendly, informative and helpful at all times!I was quite apprehensive about what I was having done and was made to feel at ease and able to have it all done within a short space of time meaning I didn’t have time to even worry about it. Been back since for general check ups and am impressed every time with their knowledge and service.Dr Rahul and Dr Sunil are both amazing dentists and I would recommend to anyone!
I could not recommend this dentistry enough! The staff are so friendly, make you feel very welcome, very comfortable and looked after.The lengths they have gone to to make sure that the whole place is covid friendly and safe is incredible.This is bar far the best I have been too.
After wanting to try a new dentist, I chose Dental Kind.This was my first time having dental work carried out as supposed to just my usual check ups.I was seen to by Dr Sunil and his assistant who I cannot praise highly enough. He is patient, willing to answer any questions before carrying out work and takes the time to explain what’s happening.I was a little reluctant previously as I didn’t always feel 100% comfortable sitting in the dental chair, especially when it came to needles. Now, I can quite happily say I look forward visiting my dentist. It was a very pleasant experience. Nothing is rushed and this is what makes Dr Sunil’s surgery unique.In terms of the surgery, it is very clean, very modern and TV’s are installed on the ceiling which is a great distraction.I would have no hesitation in recommending Dental Kind to all my friends and family. This is first class service when it comes to dentistry! You won’t be disappointed.
I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. The surgery is clean and beautiful inside, the staff are warm and friendly. Dr Sunil has now treated me 3 times and he is the first dentist I have been to that has ever made me feel comfortable. I have such a phobia of dentists (to the extreme) and he has been nothing but kind, reassuring, professional and relaxed. Appointments are not rushed, he is very thorough and I have never had a post visit issue with healing. His dental assistant was also lovely and kept me calm throughout. I don't think I will ever visit another dental surgery as long as Dr Sunil is there. Worth every penny I paid, I no longer have pain and am more reassured each time I go. This is the first time in 30 years I can say that I am not afraid to go back.
Best dentist I’ve ever been to - won’t go anywhere else now 👏🏽 Sunil and the team are all so friendly and make sure you’re in the best hands possible. Since going to DentalKind my fear of the dentist has gone away! I love my teeth after my Invisalign and so so glad I chose to get them done with DentalKind!
Caring and professional service. Sunil takes the time to explain everything fully and to ensure you are comfortable and looked after throughout. Cannot fault the service I've received and I'd highly recommend this welcoming practice.
Sunil and the DentalKind team are very professional with high attention to detail. I have seen Sunil to resolve a number of issues with my teeth, as well as Kerry for regular hygienist appointments. They both make you feel comfortable and take the time to explain what they are doing and why. I am very pleased with the results and would not go anywhere else. Highly recommend.
Impeccable service from Dr. Sunil himself and very smooth experience for something that I would usually be quite uncomfortable with. Would definitely be going back regularly and trusting Dental Kind for further long term treatments. Very impressed with how advanced, hygienic the surgery was, the COVID 19 precautions, the attention to detail. Highly recommend.
I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Sunil and his team at Dentalkind I am an extremely nervous dental patient and today needed an extraction. This has always been my biggest dental fear. Dr Sunil was so calm, caring and acted with speed and the utmost professionalism to ensure the experience was as comfortable as possible for me. Thank you for your genuine kindness and care. I would highly recommend Dentalkind.
Such kindness and care.. I was so scared but I was made very comfortable and treated so brilliantly... Im delighted with the treatment and outcome... Excellent value as well... Thank you so much
I've been attending DentalKind for many years now and I would highly recommend them. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The treatment received has been excellent and appointments are never rushed. The surgery is modern and clean and they utilise the latest equipment to check teeth and gum health. My son attends now too and he is always made to feel at ease by Sunil and the team.
Excellent service and aftercare. Highly recommend!
As someone who doesn’t really like the dentist, Dr Sunil made me feel completely comfortable and at ease! Told me everything he was doing and why, and also gave me an in-depth analysis of my teeth and how I can care for them the best why. Definitely recommend this practice.
I have recently undertaken botox treatment at FaceKind in Billericay and found Sajni and her team very friendly and professional. I always felt in good hands and am delighted with the results. I will be going back!
A fantastic dental surgery - I could not recommend Sunil and his staff highly enough, both as a regular patient and when in need of an emergency!
Granddaughter snapped her new tooth in a scooter accident, she's six. She was treated as an emergency and had X-ray and nerve check. We all left happy thanks to the wonderfully kind and gentle treatment she received. Today she has eagerly returned and had her tooth rebuilt. Honestly the only noise made by her during treatment was laughing! She now cannot wait until she has her next check up. I cannot recommend this dentist more highly. We shall all go there now from now on.
I can thoroughly recommend Dental Kind. I went to have a tooth out this morning. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and the dentist is excellent. They put me at ease and made what I thought would be a difficult job very easy. Thank you
Best clinic in Essex.
A huge thank you to the Dental Kind team and especially Sunil following a gruelling 9 months of work to restore my smile. Following an incident that left me with two destroyed front teeth I saw Sunil as an emergency appointment on a Sunday night! He immediately inspired confidence that he was the right person to fix the mess I was in.His professionalism, personability and incredible attentional to detail has given results that I never thought were possible.I couldn't recommend anyone higher and wouldn't consider using any other dentist from now on.Thank you again for your hard work!
A very welcoming practice with lovely staff. I am someone who has previously had a phobia of going to the dentist but the staff here have been so wonderful and patient with me and put me at ease, I am now recommend them to all my friends and family. I could not be happier with the treatment I have receive here and thank you for being so accommodating.
The best dental practice in Essex, stellar team!
I had a free consultation with Dental Kind regarding having a brace fitted. At the time, I had little knowledge about the different methods and prices. I only knew that I yearned for straight teeth! Dr Sunil Chudasama was very patient with me and explained the prices and procedures thoroughly. He answered all of my questions and did not pressure me into making a decision there and then.I had overlapping on my uppers and chose the Six Months Smile treatment.From my initial consultation through to my final appointment, Dr Sunil Chudasama made me feel at ease. You give a lot of trust to your dentist and I was confident throughout that I had made the right decision. Dr Sunil Chudasama is very calming and a perfectionist with his work.I am so pleased with the final result. I used to hide my teeth whilst smiling for photographs but now I am finally proud of my smile!
