Composite and zirconium veneers

Your path to a perfectly polished smile.

Dental veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells designed to enhance the appearance of your teeth. They are made from porcelain or ceramic material and are expertly crafted to fit over the front surface of your teeth, concealing imperfections like discoloration, chipping, or misalignment. Whether you have one veneer, or a whole arch of veneers, you can expect a dramatic smile transformation.

Why have dental veneers?

Unlike tooth straightening which needs several months for you to see results, veneers only need a couple of appointments for us to get your new smile underway. Thanks to modern materials, we can create thin and strong veneers that require less tooth needing to be removed. In some cases, we don’t have to treat the tooth at all.

Veneers provide a quick and effective solution for achieving a radiant, flawless smile. Whether you’re looking to correct minor dental issues or completely transform your teeth, veneers offer a durable, natural-looking, and long-lasting solution that can boost your confidence and leave you grinning with pride.

What is involved in having veneers?

We’ll first need to see you for a consultation so we can make sure your teeth and gums are perfectly healthy. We then take impressions so we can create models of your teeth. These models are used for a ‘wax-up’ where we show you a preview of how veneers can transform the appearance of your teeth.

Once you’re happy with the look that we’ve come up with together, we will prepare your teeth if you need to have a layer of enamel removed. We’ll provide temporary veneers to keep your teeth protected.

Your veneers are crafted at the dental laboratory using the models of your teeth. When we receive your veneers, we’ll see you again for your fitting. We make sure the look is exactly what you expected before we fix the veneers in place using a dental adhesive.

Frequently asked questions

After fitting, it is important to keep your veneer well-maintained with regular brushing and flossing. Your dentist and hygienist will show you how to keep on top of your dental hygiene and keep a close eye on the health of your teeth and gums.

Although veneers are resilient, it is important to treat them with care, so try not to bite your fingernails or chew pen tops or use your teeth to open anything. Also, it is probably best to steer clear of very hard foods that could cause damage to the veneer.

In many cases, fitting porcelain veneers requires some of your natural tooth enamel to be removed. Therefore, they are an irreversible treatment, designed to be kept on your teeth permanently. Your veneers themselves can last up to 15 years before needing to be replaced, depending on how well you look after them.

You shouldn’t find either the treatment for veneers or the veneers themselves painful. We use a local anaesthetic to minimise your discomfort during the preparation and fitting process and ensure you are relaxed and ready before beginning any treatment. Most patients experience no pain or discomfort at all. You may feel some sensitivity once your veneers have been fitted, but this will go away after a few days.
