Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth and change their colour, shape, size, or length.

Although veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create bright, white smiles with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth, they also protect the surface of damaged teeth and may eliminate the need for more extensive treatments. Other benefits include durability, an improved smile appearance and the need for little-to-no removal of tooth structure compared to crowns.

Why Veneers?

Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues.

Worn enamel

Over time, the thin, hard translucent substance covering your teeth (enamel) may become worn, dulled and discolored.

Genetics

Certain people are born with abnormal spacing between their teeth that widens with age.

Wear and tear

Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Aged teeth are more likely to have chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance.

Uneven teeth

Uneven teeth can result from tooth grinding or general wear and tear.

Suitable for Both Small and Large Scale Treatments

Whether you require a veneer for a single problematic tooth or wish to completely makeover your mouth, our dental technicians have the skill, experience and knowledge to deliver the best bespoke treatment.

Usually Completed in Just Two Appointments

The first appointment will allow us to expertly prepare your gums and teeth-edges for the oncoming treatment, as well as letting us obtain impressions when this essential preparation is complete. 

Before you come for your second appointment, your unique brand new veneers will be constructed and, when you arrive to see us again, our private dentist will fit them painlessly in.  We will check everything looks and feels OK for you and invite you to come back for a checkup soon to see how everything’s going.

Simple and Hassle-Free

You won’t usually need a temporary veneer between appointments and you can relax safe in the knowledge that no anesthetic (and therefore no injection) will be required at any point.  Getting veneers from us was described by one patient as ‘like getting false nails’!
