Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth to improve the overall appearance of teeth. They are made of either thin plastic resin or porcelain and can be placed to:

  • correct poorly formed or mildly mal-positioned teeth
  • close gaps between teeth
  • mask internal stains
  • restore partially broken-down teeth

Tooth preparation is minimal and confined to the enamel structure. The veneer is bonded to the tooth structure with tooth-coloured resin cement. Several visits are necessary to complete treatment.

Patients should be aware that this is usually an irreversible process because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.

Frequently Asked Questions

Veneers are permanent and last between 10 to 15 years. You will need to look after them the same way you would with your natural teeth by brushing twice, flossing and having regular check-ups at the dentist.
Veneers can be used to repair a chipped or broken tooth. They can change the shape of your tooth or improve the tooth structure. Tooth discolouration can also be masked with ceramic veneers.
A veneer is a thin moulding which is custom-made from porcelain; this is bonded to the front surface of a tooth.

Marilyn – Various Treatments

“I felt that treatment’s been really good from start to finish. I’ve been a patient here for probably over about 13 years, 14 years maybe, and every time I need to have a course of treatment, the appointments are really prompt, fit in around your lifestyle and around you when you can make it.

They explain everything, reassure you, make you feel not so worried about coming to the dentist, it can be quite a scary thing, they are really welcoming and put you at your ease.

Before, I used to be really conscious about my teeth and I didn’t like to smile very much, but they’ve been really quite good to me here. Seeing the hygienist has given me a confidence back that my teeth look quite nice.

I would recommend this practice to anybody that was looking for dentists, because, as I say, they’re really well organized, they always try to fit you in if you’ve got a problem. The staff are really friendly and welcoming, and I always feel well looked after.”
