What do Veneers Fix?

Veneers are versatile and used to treat and correct a wide range of oral and dental health problems across many fields of dentistry.

Oral Conditions Veneers Treat

The stigma surrounding veneers is that they are purely a cosmetic option for patients looking to improve the appearance of their teeth.

However, we know that veneers offer so much more as cosmetic dentists.

Using a very thin layer of composite or porcelain on top of the surface of the teeth, the veneer slips on the tooth like a cover that can protect damaged and affected parts of the tooth.

Our dentists apply veneers using special dental cement to keep the veneer secure and robust for up to 20 years.

Common problems veneers routinely fix

Veneers offer more than just cosmetic improvements, they provide a strong and healthy foundation for your oral health and provide patients with quick and simple fixes to the problems that make them feel self-conscious.

  • Taints from root canal procedures
  • Dark marks left from beverages
  • Excessive fluoride exposure
  • Resin fillings
  • Smoking stains

It’s natural as we age for our teeth to discolour, on top of this, the food and drinks we consume on a daily basis combined our habits also contribute to excessive staining.

It does not matter how many times you brush your teeth, or the grand specific of your oral hygiene routine, it is often impossible to retain a white, sparkling smile.

Teeth whitening products are often the popular solution for fixing this problem as it can be inexpensive, however, it is important to note that this is not a permanent fix and concealing discolouration caused by fluorosis will not work.

Veneers offer patients a great chance to fix a broad range of dental issues in one sitting.

  • Teeth that are too short
  • Heavily grinded teeth
  • Worn-down teeth

Heavily ground teeth can be impossible to reverse, whereas the length of your tooth can be worked on either with composite bonding, which does not last as long as veneers or with veneers themselves.

It’s important to bear in mind, however, that if you have a problem with bruxism that is advisable to get this problem treated if you are to proceed with porcelain veneers as tooth grinding can scrape the polish or damage the material.

  • Chipped
  • Broken
  • Cracked

It’s super easy to crack or chip a tooth – it can happen when you bite down on something too hard, or through accident and trauma.

Whilst it is viewed as an aesthetic issue, ignoring a chipped tooth can potentially cause more damage to your oral health as the tooth is vulnerable to more chipping and more pressure is added to surrounding teeth in the mouth.

Veneers in this instance cover and protect the underlying tooth from further decay and erosion, for patients who have one chopped tooth and wish to look into a more affordable option can opt for one veneer or composite bonding.

It’s not just orthodontics that can straighten and align your teeth.

Veneers can be favoured by many adults in this aspect who do not have to undergo months and months of waiting for their teeth to perfectly align.

Veneers can be placed within three appointments and offer patients the chance to give their smile a full makeover.

  • Gappy and gummy smiles
  • Triangle shaped pockets

Leaving gaps in the mouth can lead to problems such as gum disease, digestive problems, bad breath and difficulty chewing.

Again, orthodontics can be a good solution to closing gaps, however as veneers offer fast and effective results they have fastly become the number one choice for adults seeking this treatment.

As veneers are shaped and custom made to your mouth they will be able to close gaps between teeth and provide the same functions as regular, normal teeth.

Why are veneers so popular?

  • Fast (applied in three appointments or less)
  • Tolerated well by gums
  • Natural-looking
  • Do not require tooth shaping, shaving or drilling
  • Colours can be selected

Dental Impant Surgery:I had my dental implants fitted recently and I am extremely happy with the outcome. Ali and the team have done an amazing job since I lost my 2 front teeth over 6 years ago. I had to wait for the surgery for a long time due to my age and the issues surrounding having implants at a young age.I finally had the surgery 12 weeks ago and had my two new crowns fitted last week. They look absolutely amazing and the whole procedure was way less painful than I ever thought it would be.I would highly recommend getting your implants done at the Gentle Dental Practice, you won't regret it!A massive thank you to everyone at the practice!

Fantastic work on my teeth and I would highly recommend! My teeth turned out better than I had even hoped for. If you are in need of any dental work, you would be doing a great disservice if you didn't speak to this practice first. The staff were extremely friendly, there were text updates and all in all an excellent service from start to finish. If you haven't guessed already, I am thoroughly pleased with The Gentle Dentle. Thank you!

Like many people, I have an immense fear of dentistry, and dentists, due to previous experiences.I had two broken teeth and one that had been treated incorrectly by an NHS dentist. I had been in daily pain for about 18 months, and had been put on a 6 month waiting list by my NHS dentist.I called gentle dental to explain my problem and they offered me a same day appointment. They were kind, compassionate, understanding, patient and validating. I’m not sure anybody ever feels completely comfortable in the chair, but It’s the closest I’ve ever come!The work needed was carried out, all of the staff were kind and welcoming, and it showed me that the dentist doesn’t have to be a dreaded place!Thank you so, so much gentle dental! I will definitely be returning.

Dental Implants - 3 New Teeth - June 2022I had the most professional and pain free experience when getting my new tooth implants at Gentle Dental. Honestly I put it off for some many years because I just didn't want to go through the pain. But my experience was totally the opposite. Ali and the wonderful girls were there every step of the way. All my questions got answered and I was reassured everything would work out well. And it did. I was worried for no reason.I did think about going abroad to have it done but when you consider the risk factor, time and professional standards - it made no sense to me. I have known Ali for a long time and knew I would be in the best hands and if there were any issues these would could be resolved easily.If you are thinking of having dental implants at Gentle - don't waste any more time. Just book and get it done.Was it painful ? No, uncomfortable for a few days, yes for sure.I just wish I had it done sooner. Thanks guys, love my new teeth 🙂

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)

I’m so happy to find this practice. I suffer from anxiety and high sensitivity to pain. It was very stressful for me going to dentist after years of fear. The team not only make me calm and welcome but I FELL ASLEEP during treatment with Dr Marshall ! So understanding and caring. Thank you!

I have been using this dentist for well over a decade and can honestly say my teeth would be in a far worse situation if wasn’t for the Gentle Dental practice.My most recent visit was for a filling .. barely felt the injection!I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone, but especially if you’re teeth require a high level of care like mine.

This place was recommended to me by family and for a nervous patient the best experience. The reception welcome is cheerful and friendly, beautifully modern area with hot drinks and water on offer.I needed implants, crowns and bridges followed by whitening, so lots of appointments. My dentist Mr Ali Rafai was superb from start to finish, so professional and personable. Throughout the whole process I was cared for wonderfully plus lots of laughs along the way. The constant care during appointments was very comforting, no rushing, and I knew I my needs were Mr Rafai's priority. Plus check up call the next day without fail to make sure everything was going well.Absolutely deserves five stars!

Fantastic experience with Ali. It took 18 months including bone grafting, removing and replacing failed dental implants, invisaline for my bottom teeth which were all over the place and some veneers but now I'm delighted with the outcome.Ali was always very clear about how this wasn't an overnight solution in an honest and forthright manner which gave me confidence that he would deliver results.I was offered several overnight solutions from other dentists locally at a fraction of the cost but when I see how much effort and detail that went into my plan, I know i made the right choice.
