Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth.

This treatment requires little to no anaesthesia and instantly improves your smile. Veneers in Glasgow can be used to correct cosmetic issues such as stains, discolouration, and everyday wear and tear. Even smiles with minor orthodontic problems like small gaps in between teeth and misshapen teeth can be improved with veneers.

Are dental veneers Glasgow right for me?

Because every mouth is different, your dentist can assess if porcelain veneers are the best option to enhance your smile. Veneers in Glasgow can improve your appearance by:

  • Covering stained or discoloured teeth
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Lengthening or shortening uneven teeth
  • Hiding worn enamel
  • Repairing minor chips or cracks
  • Reshaping misshapen teeth

What happens during the veneers procedure?

When being fitted the dentist will remove about half a millimetre of enamel from the surface of your teeth, so the veneers bond correctly and to allow for the added thickness of the veneer. A mould is taken so your veneers can be fabricated. This can take one to two weeks.

At your follow-up appointment, your dentist will place the veneers on the teeth and check the shade before cementing into place and curing.

How long do veneers in Glasgow last?

With proper care, you can expect your veneers to last for 10-15 years. To extend the lifespan of your veneers avoid biting into hard foods. Wear a protective appliance at night if you grind your teeth. Limit your exposure to dark coloured drinks and food to prevent staining.

Frequently Asked Questions


The treatment itself shouldn’t cause you any pain, as you’ll be under local anaesthetic.

However, you may feel some slight sensitivity once your veneers have been fitted, but don’t worry!

This is completely normal, and any discomfort you experience will subside by itself within a couple of days.

To ease discomfort in the meantime, you can take over-the-counter pain medication – like paracetamol or ibuprofen.

Veneers are the ideal option to address a range of cosmetic dental concerns.

No matter if you have chipped or cracked teeth, severely discoloured teeth that haven’t responded to traditional teeth whitening or slightly misaligned teeth, veneers are the perfect way to achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

The only way to determine whether or not veneers are the right option for you is to book a consultation with one of our dentists. 

However, if you have sufficient tooth enamel and overall good oral health, you should be able to go right ahead with treatment.

One of the best things about veneers is how quick the treatment is.

The whole process, from start to finish, takes around 2-3 weeks, with the placement of your veneers taking 3-4 hours depending on how many you’re getting.

To put things more into perspective, you could have a brand new smile within just two dental visits!
