When it comes to transforming your smile to one that you can be proud of, veneers are a popular choice of cosmetic treatment.
Made from tooth-coloured porcelain, veneers are thin shells that cover teeth, masking any discolouration and damage.
Porcelain veneers are extremely versatile and can improve a smile in different ways. Used together, they can fill in gaps and even improve the appearance of misshapen teeth in your smile. Veneers can be an alternative to orthodontics, helping you achieve a straighter smile.
Some types of discolouration, such as deep enamel staining, can’t be treated with conventional whitening and veneers are the only solution to concealing these issues.
Veneers offer a minimally invasive way to transform a tooth as only a very thin layer of enamel is removed (if any) prior to fitting.
Completely transform your look with a smile design
Using veneers to great effect, we can give you a full makeover.
What does a smile design involve?
We first start the treatment by taking impressions of your teeth for precise measurements. We take pictures which we then run through digital imaging technology to provide a ‘digital wax-up’, creating together how your smile design can look. We decide how many veneers you will need and which teeth need treating in order to create space for the fitting.
Only a small amount of enamel needs to be removed before fitting the veneer. After we treat any teeth, we take further impressions and these are sent to the laboratory where your veneers will be crafted. Within 24 hours, we’ll have your new veneers ready. Before we fit, we check how your smile will look. You’re always in control of the end result and can make changes if you wish. We fix the veneers using a strong dental cement.
