Are you worried about the colour, size, shape or position of one or more of your teeth? Perhaps you’ve lost some enamel on one of your teeth and it looks noticeably different to the rest? Do you want to close the large gaps between your teeth or hide flaws that make you feel self-conscious?
There are lots of reasons that you might choose to have dental veneers. They offer a lovely, natural-looking finish that can either be matched to your surrounding teeth or used to makeover your whole smile. You may associate veneers with A-list celebrities but you’d be surprised at how many people from all walks of life choose this cosmetic dental treatment.
Equally, you may come to us thinking that veneers are your only option, only to discover that a different treatment or combination of treatments might be more suitable. This is why we offer FREE consultations with our Smile Adviser to help you find out more about your best treatment options.
How do veneers work?
Veneers are a wafer-thin layer of porcelain or composite material made to fit over the front of your tooth to hide any flaws. For us to be able to bond a veneer to your natural teeth, we have to remove a very thin layer of the enamel from your tooth.
We can use just one veneer or a full set to make your teeth look whiter, straighter or more evenly shaped. Porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant and better mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth, which is important for giving you a natural finish.
You can book a FREE consultation to discuss whether veneers would be the best option for you. We’ll listen to how you feel about your teeth and smile to get a good understanding of the problems you want to correct. We can also talk you through the pros and cons of the different veneer materials.
I have epilepsy and lost four of my front teeth in my 20s as the result of a seizure. After my bridge became unstable, I was dreading the prospect of wearing dentures in my 30s. Having dental implants fitted has been incredible. I smile at my children now and almost cried when I ate an apple for the first time in 15 years!
