Veneers. Art meets dentistry

The guide:

Change my smile

One of the most popular ways of improving your smile is via the use of dental veneers. In some cases some of the tooth might need to be reduced to allow space for the veneer hwoever in others the material can be added directly to your existing tooth with no preparation required.

Many other options exist to change the colour and shape of the teeth which do not involve cutting the tooth. These include teeth whitening and orthodontics/bonding and we can discuss these with you.

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or high impact composite resin (a type of plastic) that are used to improve the appearance of your teeth.

They can be used to improve the colour or shape of the teeth. They can even be used to hide spaces or give you that younger looking smile you might have always wanted.

The difference in material between porcelain or composite resin is normally made by the dentist and the patient together who can compare the benefits and procedure details of using the two options to see which the patient is more suited to.

Porcelain veneers are often more expensive since the cost of the material is more expensive than the resin.

The results that can be achieved with each of the materials is comparable but it is normally at the discretion of the dentist to decide which material will be better to use depending on your expectations.

Sometimes the veneers can be placed directly by the dentist in a single visit whereas conventionally they are made by a laboratory off-site and then they must be glued to the teeth using a special dental cement.
