Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit over your natural teeth. They are commonly used to transform smiles and create a symmetrical and balanced appearance. Veneers can conceal discolouration, gaps, misaligned teeth, chips, cracks and thinning enamel. Veneers offer a permanent restoration that will boost your self-esteem and allow you to smile with confidence again.

What are veneers?
Veneers are porcelain shells that fit over your existing teeth. Once in place, you care for them just like your natural teeth. Veneers help to enhance your appearance by making your teeth appear whiter and straighter. Veneers are ideal for individuals with chipped or cracked teeth and areas of thinning enamel. For patients with discolouration that cannot be lifted with teeth whitening treatments, veneers offer a suitable alternative.
Are you a suitable candidate?
If you have good oral hygiene and can follow essential aftercare instructions, you could be an ideal candidate for veneers. Veneers are ideal if you are unhappy with the alignment of your teeth but don't want to wait for orthodontics. It's also suitable if you have discolouration that cannot be addressed with teeth whitening. And finally, you should consider veneers if you have chips or cracks in your teeth as this treatment option will help to protect the underlying structure.

Your veneers treatment journey
Wondering if this treatment is right for you? This is what you can expect from a typical treatment journey.
Book your free consultation to learn if you are a candidate for veneers and to understand how veneers could transform your smile.
We start by preparing your teeth and taking digital impressions. Your veneer is created in a lab using digital impressions. It is carefully designed to fit over your existing teeth.
Placing the Veneer
Once ready, you will return to the practice for the final placement. We fix the veneer in place using a specialist dental cement to ensure it cannot fall off.
Smile With Confidence
Once you have your new veneer, you can smile with confidence again. Veneers can help to straighten, whiten and refine your smile in just two visits.
Veneers are a permanent restoration, but this does not mean that the restoration will last forever. While durable and typically long-lasting, some behaviour and habits can cause damage to the veneer. You may need to replace or repair the veneer in the future.
No, veneers are permanently set in place using dental cement and only your dentist can remove them. Porcelain veneers are not reversible, so you should decide if you are happy to have a veneer for the rest of your life before going ahead with treatment.
No, veneers do not ruin your teeth. Modern veneers can be placed with minimal preparation of the underlying structure. This preparation should not damage the tooth structure.
While most foods are fine to eat with veneers, there are some things that could damage your veneer. Hard items like crusty bread, tough meat, apples and ice cubes can all cause damage to your veneer. Your veneers will also be susceptible to staining, so regular hygienist visits are essential to keep your veneer looking beautiful.
Porcelain veneers offer longevity and excellent value for money. With the right care, they could last for 10 years or more. The biggest risk to veneers is not that they will come loose. They can be chipped or cracked if you eat certain foods, chew ice, or bite your nails.
Most people choose to correct the "social six", which is the top front teeth visible when you smile. We will work with your face shape and smile to determine which teeth would most benefit from veneers.
No, you should not have any pain during the treatment. When we prepare the underlying tooth structure, you will be given a local anaesthetic to numb the area. Once the treatment is completed, you might be more sensitive to hot and cold for a short time, but this will soon pass.
Yes, porcelain veneers are certainly worth the cost. When you consider the cost and time required for alternative treatment (orthodontics and teeth whitening) you quickly see that veneers offer a fast and effective treatment option. You could transform your smile in just a few visits.
