Dental Veneers

What are Dental Veneers?

A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain used to cover the front of a tooth. They are considered for several reasons such as when the enamel has become worn, chipped or discoloured or the teeth have become malaligned.

Veneers are extremely thin but once bonded to the tooth are unbelievably strong. They can block out undesirable colours, such as from a very dark underlying tooth and allow the beauty of the veneers to shine through. They can be used to create a smile that is natural and beautiful.

In most cases, we carry out a diagnostic wax-up where you can trial your veneers before going ahead with the definitive treatment.

How we apply dental veneers

We will need to prepare your teeth, removing small amounts of tooth material from the front surface of the teeth we are treating, this is done under local anaesthesia.  We must shape the teeth otherwise the veneers may look bulky and unnatural, however, it does mean that it is an irreversible procedure and that the teeth will always need to be protected with veneers.
