Composite Veneers & Composite Bonding Treatments in Just One Day with our Same-Day Smile
With Same-Day Smile, you’ll come in and leave with a whole new smile on your face in just one day. One of our most popular treatment plans, the Same-Day Smile treatment plan is perfectly tailored to you, your wishes, goals and needs, to give you the best possible results and a glowing smile when you step out of the clinic. Same-Day Smile generally consists of Composite Veneers and Composite Bonding treatments, alongside teeth whitening, to give you a comprehensive dentistry plan and help create a smile that looks beautiful and fits your mouth very naturally.
Composite Veneers are a tooth-coloured material which is matched to the shade of your natural teeth. It’s then applied in thin layers to the surface of the tooth and sculpted by your dentist to help fill in chipped teeth, create the appearance of straighter teeth in cases of minor misalignment and to remove discolouration or “patchiness” on the surface of your teeth. Composite veneers have a quick treatment time, don’t damage the natural tooth and are completely painless to put in.
Composite Bonding treatments are very similar to Composite Veneers, except where veneers cover the whole tooth, composite bonding generally only covers part of the tooth. This makes it less time and resource-consuming than composite veneer treatments but still allows us to straighten, smooth and whiten the teeth quickly and painlessly!
Throughout your Same-Day Smile dental procedure, you can listen to music or watch a film to keep your mind occupied and help you relax in the capable hands of our dental team.
Am I Right for Composite Veneers & Composite Bonding Treatments?
If your teeth are generally in good health with minor to moderate imperfections, then composite treatments might be ideal for you. Common issues that we can improve with composite treatments include:
- Cracks in the teeth.
- Uneven and rough tooth edges.
- Chipped edges or corners of the teeth.
- Slight misalignment of the teeth.
- Discolouration and dark spots on the surface of the tooth.
Composite treatments can be used to smooth the edges and surface of the teeth as well as to whiten and brighten the teeth, resulting in a smooth, straight, beautiful smile. If you’re looking for a treatment that is quick, comfortable and effective, while providing you with long-lasting and beautiful results, look no further than composite dental treatments. Composite treatments generally last from five to seven years before they need to be replaced, if taken care of properly, and treatment is carried out in less than a day!.
If you’re not sure whether you need composite treatments or something else, such as orthodontics or porcelain veneers, our team will be able to help advise and guide you throughout the consultation process. We’ll talk you through the advantages of different treatments as well as make recommendations based on the condition of your teeth, your age, your lifestyle and many other factors. We won’t carry out any treatments we don’t believe will actually help you in the long-term and are passionate about ensuring the safety and comfort of every single one of our patients, no matter what kind of treatment they are looking for.
Porcelain Veneers at Dental Excellence
Porcelain Veneers are a long-term solution to whiten, straighten and strengthen teeth. Porcelain veneers, like composite veneers, cover the whole tooth and can improve the shape, size, shade and appearance of your teeth. If you have struggled with tooth discolouration, chipping or crookedness for a long time, porcelain veneers might be the right treatment plan for you.
Porcelain veneers are a wafer-thin layer of porcelain that is laid over the whole tooth, are permanently bonded to the tooth’s surface, and generally last for around 15 years. They aren’t susceptible to staining in the same way composite veneers are, so you can be confident of a shiny white smile for many years after having your porcelain veneers put in.
A very thin layer of enamel is then removed from the surface of the tooth, reshaping it so that the veneer can neatly sit on top when it is put in. All veneers, including porcelain veneers, are made completely custom to your teeth using a model of your tooth, which we’ll take in the first appointment. There is a great deal of artistry that goes into creating the perfect dental veneer, as what works for one person’s face will not for the next. Our dentists artfully create porcelain veneers that perfectly suit you, leaving you with a beautiful smile that is just as unique as you are.
Porcelain veneers are generally a multi-step process that will take a few appointments. After your initial consultation with our dentistry team, if you decide that porcelain veneers are right for you, we’ll make an appointment to create the model of your tooth or teeth. Then, we’ll prep your teeth and apply temporary implants. Your custom veneers will be created for you by our lab team, before being bonded to your teeth.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?
Porcelain veneers are an incredibly effective treatment with long-lasting results that don’t require a huge amount of maintenance. In general, we recommend composite treatments for younger people with generally healthy teeth, and porcelain veneers are the next step after this. Of course, this can vary widely between patients, which is why our team always takes the time to get to know you and understand your lifestyle, goals and dental health when helping you choose the right treatment.
Porcelain veneers may be a great option for you if you struggle with issues such as:
- Tooth enamel that is wearing down, which can be uncomfortable and increase tooth staining.
- Cracks, chips or uneven teeth, caused by unavoidable wear and tear, or by habits like teeth grinding.
- Misalignment caused by ageing or genetics, leaving gaps between your teeth.
- Tooth discolouration that traditional teeth whitening procedures aren’t effective at removing.
Porcelain veneers are a bit more of a commitment than their composite counterparts, requiring a few separate appointments and permanent changes to your teeth. However, they’re also incredibly resilient and long-lasting, making them a good long-term investment. Porcelain veneers also don’t stain, unlike your natural teeth or composite veneers, so you don’t have to worry about losing the bright white of your teeth for many years to come.
Dental Implants For Patients in Liverpool
Dental Implants are a long-term solution to help restore missing teeth, or as a way to support the placement of dental crowns or dentures. For those struggling with missing teeth, it’s not just a matter of giving you back confidence in your smile, it’s a case of helping you improve your health and comfort, as missing teeth can affect your ability to eat and speak, as well as making you prone to infection and the need for dental work in the future.
When you have dental implants fitted, you’re essentially creating an artificial tooth root. This is done with a titanium screw, which fuses with the bones of the jaw to stop you implant moving or falling out. You can have single or multiple dental implants fitted at once, depending on your needs. Dental implants can sound scary, but our team of expert dentists will be able to help and advise you throughout every step of the dental implant process.
Dental implants, like veneers, take multiple appointments to make sure your treatment is safe and comfortable, and that it will remain that way in the long-term. After your consultation, you’ll have an appointment to fit your implants. At this stage, we’ll remove any teeth that need to be taken out and place temporary crowns, bridges, or dentures. You’ll have these temporary measures for between three and six months, to give your jaw and gums time to adjust and settle before we fit your permanent implants and any crowns or dentures that are needed.
Dental implants are a long-term solution, and once they are fitted, you’ll usually be set for life with proper care.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
Dental implants are a highly effective and long-lasting treatment option for patients struggling with tooth loss, however, they are also quite a big commitment, with several different appointments needed over the course of an extended period of time - in some cases over a year. However, once dental implant treatment is complete, you’ll be set for the rest of your life with proper care, as dental implants are one of the best permanent solutions for tooth loss. They are comfortable and natural looking, easy to care for and look and feel like your natural teeth, so it isn’t obvious you’ve had any work done.
Dental implants are also very popular compared to bridges or dentures as they don’t rely on your other teeth to support them. As long as you have generally good oral health, a fully developed jaw, good overall health and healthy bones in the jaw, dental implants are likely to be a very good fit for you.
