What are Veneers?
Veneers are hand crafted porcelain, often wafer thin and are used to cover the front surface of a tooth.
When they are placed over the tooth, they can correct its colour, shade, position and function.
Why do people choose them?
When one type of restoration, can correct so many different tooth complaints, it is no wonder many of our patients choose to benefit from their use.
Common reasons our patients choose veneers:
- Crooked teeth
- Uneven edges
- Chipped tooth
- Gaps between teeth
- Protruding teeth
How many can I have?
The number of veneers depends on what you are looking to achieve. Their usage, can range from one for individual problems, to as many as ten per arch, if you are looking for a smile make over.
Which other treatments can I have with them?
Veneers can be combined with many other treatments, but a popular choice is tooth whitening, to give the perfect lift to the finished smile.
How many visits will they take?
In most cases just 2-3 pain-free appointments are needed to complete the veneering process. We endeavour to make the whole experience informative, enlightening and as relaxed as possible.
How long do they take?
Veneers can be made within 7 days but the exact time frame depends on the type of porcelain used and the number of veneers we are making.
As you will be smiling with them for the next 10 years, we always ask our patients to remember – an extra appointment during the treatment process can be worth it, to ensure the end result is perfect.
