Cosmetic Dentistry – Veneers
Transform your smile through using veneers to enhance and improve the appearance of your teeth. Veneers can fit over the outward-facing surface of your front teeth, changing the way they look. They are essentially a thin, porcelain cover that sits on top of the tooth, covering up discolouration, chips, closing gaps, and bringing teeth into line with others.
We will carefully match the veneer in size, shape and colour so that it blends in beautifully with the rest of your teeth for a natural-looking smile.
What does the treatment involve?
Veneers often require very minimal preparation. Some cases will not require any preparation at all to the tooth. Those that do only need minimal work, removing the shiny, outer enamel surface of the tooth to ensure the veneer can be bonded properly.
If we need to treat the tooth, this is done first so we can take impressions or scans. These are used to create the veneers, which are also colour matched to blend in neatly with your smile.
When we receive the veneers from the lab, we invite you back for the fitting. We make sure that they look and feel great before using dental cement to fix them in place.
Looking after your veneers
While veneers look just like natural teeth, they aren’t as strong as natural enamel. Take care not to bite down on hard foods to avoid breaking the porcelain. Veneers have a greater chance at lasting a long time if great oral care is maintained, protecting the natural tooth from decay.
