Dental Veneers

Achieve that Hollywood smile

 


 

 

Veneers are thin sheets of laminate porcelain intended to look like the surface of natural teeth, being applied to the front tooth surface in a similar way to false nails. This creates a flawless smile in a matter of moments, the treatment has become popular in recent years as a result of celebrity endorsements and the growing popularity of Hollywood smiles.

 

Porcelain Veneers will perfect your smile by evening and smoothing out your smile line, greatly improving the shade of your existing teeth and will evenly proportion the size and width of your teeth to give you that beautiful, perfect smile! Once bonded on they become even stronger and best of all they will never discolour or stain.

 

 

The Procedure:

 

Before the veneers are applied our dentist will prepare your teeth. This is a simple procedure which is carried out under local anaesthetic, requiring the removal of thin pieces of the tooth structure to permit room for the veneers. This is a small amount and generally the same thickness as the veneer.

 

Once the teeth are ready we will create impressions and your new veneers will be manufactured according to these. We will also discuss colour shades and shapes to help plan your perfect smile. The veneers will be fitted and applied to the teeth using dental adhesive.

 

 

How long do dental veneers last?

 

They should be in place for many years if you look after them well. They can break and become chipped just like natural teeth and you will need to take care when playing sports or eating hard foods.

 

 

Why can′t I just whiten my teeth instead?

 

In some cases, professional teeth whitening can brighten your smile and revive your appearance. When you have gaps, permanent stains, or chips, bleaching your teeth won't address the issues. Porcelain veneers literally cover the teeth and create a straight, attractive smile.
