Do you find yourself becoming increasingly conscious about your smile? If you’re having trouble with discoloured, chipped or wonky teeth, veneers may be the ideal solution. Not a decision taken lightly, here you’ll find relevant information to help further your knowledge and judgement as to whether this could be the procedure for you.
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of teeth, resulting in a brighter, healthier looking cosmetic appearance. Not only do they improve oral aesthetics, but veneers also provide strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.
When are veneers needed?
Designed to improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth, veneers can be applied to improve the colour of a single discoloured tooth or lighten numerous front teeth. Not only that, veneers are capable of making a chipped tooth look whole again, whilst also having the ability to help reposition teeth should they be out slightly out of line.
How do you maintain veneers?
As we would recommend with regular teeth, it’s important to continue brushing and flossing regularly to best maintain your veneers. Etwall Dental Practice dentists will also suggest that you limit stain-inducing food such as coffee to ensure optimum conditions are observed. Despite their longevity, veneers will eventually need to be replaced. Nevertheless, practicing good oral hygiene will help ensure the lifespan of your veneers reaches its full potential.
The dental team at Etwall Dental Practice are well aware of the difference a confident smile can make in your day-to-day life. It’s important to us that our patients are left feeling comfortable and not at all conscious of their teeth. We therefore encourage you to Contact Us to book a consultation so we can help bring your smile back to life.

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.
