Veneers are often featured on television makeover shows and it’s no surprise; they really can produce amazing results and they are highly versatile. Our dentists have expertise in using porcelain veneers to create beautiful smiles, so you can show off your pearly whites with pride.
Veneers are very thin, tooth-shaped sheets of porcelain, which are placed over your teeth. They are often likened to false nails, as they sit on top of your teeth. There is a great deal of scope to design your own smile with veneers, as they are available in a range of different shapes, sizes and shades. Some of our patients prefer a very natural look, while others like to inject that extra touch of glamour into their smile.
Veneers are very versatile and they have a range of uses, from addressing chipped and worn teeth to creating a brighter, whiter smile for patients with stained teeth. They can also help to make gaps between the teeth look smaller and create a healthier, more youthful looking smile.
Veneer treatment takes place over two sessions that take place once we have had a consultation and planned your treatment in great detail. The first treatment is designed to prepare your teeth and create the impressions for your new veneers. Preparation involves trimming away an ultra-thin layer of the tooth structure to increase the space available for the veneers. This part of the treatment process is essential for creating an attractive, natural aesthetic.
Once the teeth have been prepared, impressions are created and these are used to make your bespoke veneers.
The second stage of treatment involves fitting the veneers. We will check that you are happy with the look of your new smile and then secure the veneers in position using dental adhesive.
