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.
If you dream of a perfect smile, porcelain veneers could help to make your wishes come true. These beautifully-crafted porcelain shells are famed for creating stunning smiles fit for the red carpet.
About porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin and lightweight tooth-shaped shells. They are placed on top of your natural tooth surface to produce a brand new, beautiful aesthetic. Veneers can be used individually or as a full set and they are a popular choice for people who wish to treat issues such as staining or chipped teeth, as well as those who long for a flawless smile.
Porcelain veneers are very thin, often thinner than a contact lens, and they have incredible benefits for the look of the smile.
Treatment usually involves two to three sessions that take place over two or three weeks.
Veneer treatment at Clifton Dental Studio
Before you start treatment, we invite you to come to an informal consultation so that we can chat to you about the aspects of your smile you want to improve and talk you through the treatment process for veneer treatment. We will also have a good look at your teeth and chat through some ideas to see which kinds of smiles you like and the kind of results you would hope to achieve once treatment is complete. We really want you to be as open and honest as possible so we can make sure we work towards making your dreams come true, so please ask any questions and feel free to bring in photographs and pictures of smiles you like.
Once you have chosen to go ahead with treatment, our expert dentists will then set about planning your treatment in meticulous detail to ensure the best possible outcome. They will draw up your personalised treatment plan and then create the impressions for your bespoke veneers. This will be done once your teeth have been prepared. The preparation process involves etching away a very fine layer of the tooth surface. We send the impressions away and then await the arrival of your brand new veneers. At the second appointment, we bond the veneers onto your teeth and fix them securely so you can start enjoying your radiant new smile.

Veneers have fast become the treatment of choice for patients seeking a gleaming, flawless smile, but why are they so popular and could they be a good investment for you?
Here are 4 reasons to get veneers:
Beautiful aesthetics: the main reason most people choose to have veneers is to enjoy a beautiful smile. Veneers are designed to look like bright, perfectly shaped natural teeth and they are guaranteed to make even the most unsightly set of teeth look stunning. When you’ve got a gorgeous smile, you’ll also be more likely to feel confident showing it off.
Easy process: the process for veneer treatment is very simple and there is minimal discomfort involved. Treatment usually takes place over 2 sessions. The first session is designed to plan treatment and prepare the teeth and the second session is used to fit the veneers. Preparing the teeth involves removing an ultra-thin layer of the tooth surface. The aim is to make room for the new veneers. Your new veneers are created based on impressions of the teeth to ensure a perfect fit. Once they are ready, the veneers are then fixed onto the surface of the teeth to create your new smile.
Solution for cosmetic imperfections: veneers are known for creating celebrity smiles, but they also offer a solution for imperfections, including chipped and uneven teeth, gaps between the teeth and worn and misshapen edges.
Timeless looks: veneers should last for many years, meaning that your smile will look timeless and beautiful for years to come.
If you think veneers could be the treatment for you, call us today. Whether you’ve got unsightly chipped teeth you’re keen to remedy or you simply long for a brighter, more attractive looking smile, veneers could be the answer.
The results that can be achieved by modern dentistry are truly amazing. We are proud to offer a host of innovative orthodontic, restorative and cosmetic dental treatments to enable all our patients to enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles.
Quality lies at the heart of what we do, and we use only the finest materials to produce high grade restorations and tooth replacements. Porcelain is one of our favourite materials, as it enables us to provide our patients with stunning aesthetics and highly effective treatment. Here are just a few examples of how we use porcelain to create sparkling smiles in Bath, Bristol and beyond:
Veneers are wafer-thin shells made from porcelain. They are fixed to the surface of the natural teeth to produce a beautiful new smile. Porcelain is a popular choice because it has a beautiful glossy sheen and matches the shade of healthy, bright teeth. Veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth and they provide an excellent solution for people who have worn, stained or misshapen teeth.
Dental crowns are restorations that sit over the top of a damaged or decayed tooth to make it stronger. Porcelain crowns look exactly like natural teeth, as they match the shade of the tooth perfectly for a seamless finish. They are durable and hard-wearing and they can have a really positive impact on the overall look of the smile.
Porcelain dental bridges
Dental bridges are an affordable and effective treatment for patients who have missing teeth. Bridges are commonly used to replace a single lost tooth and they can last up to 15 years. Treatment usually takes 2-3 weeks, with 2 sessions. Although bridges can be made from ceramic and metals, porcelain is a very popular choice because it provides very lifelike and attractive aesthetics.
