Veneers provide immediate and noticeable results making them one of the most popular cosmetic procedures to enhance your smile. Teeth that are chipped, misshapen, or discoloured can be corrected using veneers.

Veneers are a permanent restoration and cannot be reversed.

What are porcelain veneers?

Veneers are thin tooth coloured strips of porcelain that is bonded to the front of teeth to give the appearance of no imperfections. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, so there is no need to worry about them becoming discoloured.

What happens during the procedure?

When being fitted for veneers, your dentist will remove about half a millimetre of enamel from the surface of your teeth. This also roughens the tooth surface an ensures the veneers bond correctly, and it allows for the added thickness of the veneer. An impression is taken so your customised veneers can be fabricated.

At your follow-up appointment, your dentist will place the veneers on your teeth and check the shade before cementing them into place and curing for a mini smile makeover result.

How long do veneers last?

Porcelain veneers on average last from 10-15 years.

Proper oral hygiene can help to extend the lifespan of your veneers. Chewing on hard food or ice and even your fingernails can damage your veneers.

If you grind or clench your teeth especially at night ask your dentist about a customised mouthguard to help prolong your veneer-enhanced smile.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
