Porcelain veneers are often entrusted with the role of creating bright and beautiful smiles and they are an excellent choice for patients who are looking for that celebrity style smile. There are lots of different shapes, sizes and shades of veneers available, so we can create your dream smile, whether you are looking for all-out Hollywood glamour or a subtle, natural look.
What are veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-fine sheets of laminated porcelain, in the shape of natural teeth. They are positioned over your existing teeth, creating the image of a flawless smile. There is a great deal of scope with veneers and we can help you to design your perfect smile. You can choose the shade, shape and size of your veneers and each one is made to fit the contours of your natural teeth perfectly.
Veneers are not just there to look pretty, they can also be used as a means of addressing common problems such as worn, chipped and stained teeth. If your teeth are misshapen, discoloured or worn down, this can affect your self-esteem as well as your looks and veneers can help to boost your self-esteem and ensure you feel much happier and more confident when you smile.
Veneers can also be used as part of a smile makeover, a series of treatments which, put together, aim to create the smile of your dreams.
Before your veneers are crafted, we prepare your teeth. This simple procedure involves removing a very thin layer of the tooth structure to make space for the veneers. This ensures a natural look and increases comfort. Once your teeth are ready, we create impressions, which are sent away and used by highly skilled dental technicians to make your new veneers. Once the veneers are ready, we will place them over your teeth, check that you are happy with the finished result and then secure them using strong adhesive.
