Veneers

Veneers can quickly and easily correct a range of cosmetic issues, and we often recommend them as part of a smile makeover.

Veneers can correct the shape, length, and the colour of a tooth, and they can even disguise gaps between the teeth.

Veneers are made from a thin layer of porcelain or composite resin and cover the entire front surface of teeth to improve their appearance.

Fitting a veneer typically takes place across two appointments for porcelain veneers, while ceramic veneers can be completed in a single appointment.

At the first appointment, your dentist will remove about half a millimetre of enamel from the surface of your tooth to create the ideal surface for bonding the veneer and a little extra space in your mouth to ensure your veneers don’t feel bulky. They will then send an impression of your tooth to a lab to have your veneers made.

Your second visit to the dentist will be to fit the veneers, which they will cement into place with a special adhesive. The cement is then hardened using an ultraviolet light.

How long your veneers last will depend on the material you choose. The most popular material is porcelain, which can last for 10 to 15 years with the proper care.
