Millions of people have veneers; custom made shells of tooth coloured materials which are used in the front teeth in place of crowns or fillings.
Veneers cover the front surface of teeth in order to change and enhance their colour, shape, size or length. They are generally used to improve the aesthetics and well made, well fitted veneers can help to give you a perfect smile.
You’ll need to have a consultation with one of our expertly trained dentists who will need to know as much as possible regarding your dental history. Be prepared to say exactly what you want to achieve from your veneers and be sure to say anything about your smile or teeth that you want to change.
Treatments vary depending on your individual needs, your specific teeth requirement or type, and client’s budgets. However, veneers are always custom fitted so you’ll need to have your teeth measured and the veneers applied. The procedure is relatively pain free however if you are nervous or have a low pain threshold, ask us about having a local anaesthetic or pain relief.
The most common type of veneer treatment involves porcelain veneers. Porcelain is an excellent material as it’s translucent therefore means it looks like natural tooth enamel. As such, veneer treatments can provide rapid results and have your smile shining in just a matter of weeks.
Veneers should last between 5 years and a lifetime. It all depends on how you look after them, the strength of your teeth and individual lifestyle. For the best results, ensure you book in regular dental check ups to monitor and maintain your veneers.
