At Summertown Dental & Implants in Oxford we use dental veneers to improve aesthetics, usually of the top six to ten teeth in the visible “smile zone”. They can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth.
How can veneers help?
- Colour: a precise shade of porcelain is chosen to improve a single or several discoloured teeth.
- Shape: veneers can be used where teeth are small and bulk needs to be added to make them more expressive and visible. A veneer can also make a chipped tooth look intact again.
- Position: if a tooth is slightly out of position or there is a gap between teeth, a veneer can sometimes be used to help align it with the others.
Why do we use Emax® Veneers?
Emax® veneers are pressed ceramic and their high strength and durability make it possible to produce them in very thin layers allowing little or no drilling of the teeth. One of the biggest advantages of Emax® veneers is avoiding drilling teeth to peg shapes, as can be the case with conventional porcelain veneers.
After your Oxford Dentist takes initial impressions, the veneers are shaped in wax to produce the chosen shape. The wax veneers are then cast and molten porcelain is used to produce the final veneer.
Emax® Veneers’ superior strength makes it possible to produce them as ultra-thin layers but with much higher edge-strength than “feldspathic” veneers and little possibility of chipping.
