A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain or composite that fits over the front surface of a tooth to create natural-looking results, perfectly mirroring the translucency of natural teeth.
They not only improve the shape of a tooth (and, in some cases, can lengthen shortened teeth), but can also lighten the colour and enhance its position.
Porcelain veneers are resistant and very durable in the long term when planned, executed and maintained well. They are also a great anti-ageing treatment, replacing discoloured teeth with porcelain veneers in the colour of your choice that give you a more youthful appearance.
They can form part of a major smile makeover and can be combined with other cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening, composite bonding, crowns, bridges and dental implants, all blending perfectly.
If you are interested to learn more about veneers and whether you are suitable for type of treatment then please book in an appointment to see one of our cosmetic dentists who will be more than happy to help and advise.

Porcelain veneers are always made in the laboratory by a dental technician in accordance with the instructions of a cosmetic dentist. Porcelain is a highly aesthetic material that has a very life like and shiny appearance which has a long term durability and does not fade or stain. As a result it needs very little maintenance in the long run. Drawbacks of porcelain are they are difficult to repair and so in cases of any chips, cracks or breakages in future – the whole veneer would need to be replaced. Since porcelain veneers are fabricated in a laboratory there is a higher cost associated with it
Composite veneers are made of an aesthetic resin material that is bonded onto your teeth. There can be hand sculpted by the dentist or can be made within a laboratory via the help of a dental technician. Composite is a very lifelike and aesthetic material that is easy to repair and fix should it ever break, chip or wear in the future. Since it is mainly hand sculpted using the artistic skills of the dentist unlike porcelain it can be modified chairside until you are happy with the result giving your cosmetic dentist greater artistic licence to bespoke it exactly how you wish whilst you watch. Composite is also significantly cheaper than porcelain. The drawbacks of composite are that it wears quicker than porcelain likely to need more maintenance and polishing throughout life than porcelain and may need to be repaired, fixed, re-surfaced, re-polished at yearly intervals. Composite can pick up staining more readily than porcelain and may need to be polished every 6-12 months depending on your diet.
We offer a haven of tranquillity, thoughtfully designed to stimulate the senses and complemented by state-of-the-art technology that makes your experience calm, relaxing and ultimately re-energising.
