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 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 right for me?

Because every mouth is different, your dentist can assess if porcelain veneers are the best option to enhance your smile. Veneers 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 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 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.

This practice is honestly hands down the best I've ever been to. The staff are so friendly, warm and welcoming and the practice is very modern and clean. I hadn't been for years and am extremely phobic of the dentist…

Got my implant tooth fitted here by Dr Ahmed and Lauren. Only in my 30’s and felt self conscious about having to take my front tooth out! Once I even lost it and had to walk around with my mouth…
