Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are becoming increasingly popular due to the way they can simultaneously repair, protect and enhance the appearance of your teeth. Over the past decade, technology has become much more affordable, so it’s now much easier for anyone to achieve their perfect smile and regain lost confidence.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

A dental veneer is a thin ceramic shell fixed over the surface of one or more teeth to improve the look and whiteness of your smile. They are a great way to quickly makeover your whole mouth, giving you an instant confidence boost. Porcelain veneers are custom-made in a dental lab based on an impression of your teeth, so you can be sure they will fit perfectly and look natural.

Are They Right for Me?

Veneers are used for both cosmetic and restorative dental treatments. If your teeth have suffered damage over time or you’re simply unhappy with the way they look, veneers are a straightforward fix. They can mask issues such as:
  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Tooth misalignment
  • Tooth staining
  • Unsightly gaps between teeth
One of the key benefits of porcelain veneers compared to other treatments is that they can last well over 10 years with proper care. Coupled with the fact that they’re resistant to chipping and staining, porcelain veneers represent a long-term investment in your oral health and self-confidence.

What’s the Procedure?

To fit a veneer, your dentist will begin by removing a small amount of the surface of your teeth. This creates space for the veneer and ensures it can sit properly in place. Once this has been done, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will be used to make the bespoke porcelain piece.

When the implant is ready to be fitted, it will be securely fixed using a bonding agent. After a few quick checks, you’re ready to show the world your new smile!
