Porcelain veneers can give you the smile that you have always dreamed of, regardless of your age. They can provide you with straighter, whiter teeth and are among the most popular treatments on the dental market. A veneer is a layer of porcelain that fits over the front of the tooth like a fingernail. Veneers can hide discolored teeth or transform the shape of them.

ABOUT Veneers

What are the benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are a non-surgical solution to problems including tooth gaps, cracked, chipped and stained teeth, and incorrectly-sized teeth. What’s more, it is normally incredibly difficult to tell the difference between your veneers and your remaining teeth. Veneers are also stain-proof. You can maintain your veneers in the same way you would treat your normal teeth.

  • Get straighter, whiter teeth
  • Hide discolored teeth
  • Transform the shape of your existing teeth
  • Make eating and talking easier
  • Correct minor misalignment
What is the process of getting Porcelain Veneers?

After a consultation, giving you a full understanding of the process, why each stage needs to occur, and deciding that veneers are right for you, we can add the veneers. We usually need to scrape off a tiny amount of the existing tooth surface to ensure the veneer fits properly. This provides the right aesthetics while giving the tooth its function back. The process usually takes around three weeks and you will normally be given temporary veneers. The temporary veneers will give you an insight into how the end result will look and feel and gives us the chance to make adjustments if needed before the permanent veneers are fitted. Once this period is over, you can expect to have your bite function fully restored. The process cannot be reversed once the permanent veneers are in place.

We will need to use a gel to roughen up the tooth surface and make the bonding process more efficient. We will use a light wand to send heat through the veneer to the bonding agent and remove moisture to speed up bonding before eliminating any excess cement and polishing the veneer.

Who typically gets Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are suitable for anyone with slight gaps in their teeth, or cracked, chipped, and stained teeth. We have provided adults of all ages with veneers in the past. A number of A-list celebrities have invested in veneers but this does not mean that our solutions are out of your price range. Call today to find out more.
