Veneers are thin shells of tooth-coloured material that can improve the look or shape of your teeth to create your perfect smile.

Veneers are particularly effective when it comes to improving the appearance of teeth that have become stained, chipped and uneven. They can help you achieve confidence in your appearance by transforming your teeth.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are very thin shells of composite resin and porcelain that are colour-matched to blend in with your own teeth. Veneers can be a great option to improve the shape and appearance of worn, damaged and discoloured teeth. Veneers do require a small amount of filing of your natural teeth so it is important that you are confident it is the right choice for you.

How long does the procedure take?

You can achieve a great new smile in two or three appointments. Initially, the tooth has to be drilled to remove a very thin layer of the outer enamel. The amount of enamel removed is often a fraction of a millimetre. This ensures that the very thin veneer will blend in with the surrounding teeth. An impression or mould is taken of the prepared tooth. This is sent to the dental laboratory along with photographs of your teeth so that they can create a veneer that is an exact match.

A temporary veneer is made to cover the tooth while you wait for the final version to be made. When it is ready and when you are happy with the colour and shape of the veneer, it is bonded to the tooth.

How do I look after my veneers?

Veneers are made of strong material and can last a long time. Just like natural teeth they are maintained with effective tooth brushing, flossing and if appropriate the use of interdental brushes. Veneers can be damaged by chewing and biting into harder foods and substances. Dental veneers may be at increased risk of damage if you bite your fingernails, chew on pens at work or if you grind your teeth in your sleep.
