People with heavily stained teeth, tooth chips and worn teeth can all benefit from the cosmetic enhancement of porcelain veneers.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are known as the ‘false nails’ of the cosmetic dentistry world, as they sit over the surface of a damaged or stained tooth masking any problems you may have. Made of the very finest porcelain, veneers mimic both the whiteness and natural translucency of a tooth, meaning that they appear completely natural within your mouth.
How are they fitted?
Most veneers treatments require 2-3 visits to assess your teeth, prep your smile and fit your veneers. The first appointment will involve a thorough check of your teeth and mouth to make certain that veneers are the best treatment for you. After this you will return to the clinic, where we will prepare your teeth for your new veneers by removing a small portion of the tooth surface, taking impressions of your teeth and fitting you with temporary veneers. These impressions, along with your ideal shape and colour preference, are sent to a specialist dental laboratory, where your new, beautiful smile will be created. On the third visit you return to the practice to have your personalised veneers fitted, using strong dental adhesive to securely bond your tooth and veneer together. Your new teeth will then be polished and buffed to ensure that they look natural, clean and healthy.

then they can receive the treatment and results they need with porcelain veneers.
