Veneers – masking unsightly teeth.

Veneers are thin shells, normally made from porcelain or composite, which are fixed neatly to the front surface of a tooth to hide all kinds of defects and improve its colour, shape or alignment.

As only a small layer of natural tooth (if any) needs to be removed prior to fitting, veneers offer a minimally invasive solution to unsightly or awkwardly positioned teeth.

The advantages

  • Natural-looking
  • Long-lasting
  • Stain resistant
  • More of the natural tooth can be kept intact

The treatment process

  • If necessary, a thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth so the veneer will fit comfortably.
  • Impressions are then taken so the veneer can be produced specifically for you. It will also be colour matched to blend in perfectly.
  • When ready, the veneer is bonded securely to your tooth.

More about veneers

Good dental hygiene is essential following the fitting of a veneer so the underlying tooth and surrounding teeth remain healthy. You also need to attend regular check-ups with your dentist so they can ensure all remains well with your restoration.

Although designed to last, you do need to be a little careful with veneers as they can chip or break just like real teeth. Try to avoid biting your fingernails and opening things with your teeth.

Patient Testimonials

"I was a very nervous patient as I knew I had bad teeth due to not brushing much as a youngster. I’d never been to the dentist in about 18 years due to the embarrassment I felt towards my teeth and I thought I would be judged. How wrong was I? The Verne Road Dental Practice has been amazing. Every member of staff are great professionals."
