Dental veneers are custom-made, micro-thin layers of porcelain or composite resin that are permanently bonded to the surface of your teeth.
Veneers can improve the shape and cover discolouration of front teeth as well as reduce gaps between teeth. Dental veneers are a fast, effective and potentially long-lasting cosmetic treatment for a radiant smile.
Veneers are versatile and convenient treatment to improve your visible teeth and transform your smile. Depending on your individual requirements, veneers can be used to:
The surface enamel of the teeth to be treated is regularised and lightly etched in preparation to receive the veneers. This procedure normally does not require any anaesthesia.
Your dentist will then take impressions of your teeth, from which our specialist dental laboratory will create your bespoke veneers. The colour and brightness of the veneers are matched to your natural teeth.
At your next appointment, your dentist will check the fit, shape and appearance of the veneers on your teeth. The veneers will then be bonded to the front of each tooth using special dental adhesive. When hardened, your veneers can then be polished for a beautiful smile.
With care, dental veneers are generally a long-lasting cosmetic treatment, lasting up to 10 years or more. Like natural teeth, dental veneers can chip or break. Small damage can often be repaired, or the veneer replaced. Your dentist will advise you on looking after your veneers after your treatment.
