Veneers can close small gaps between teeth, giving the appearance of a more evenly spaced smile.
Are you looking to transform your smile? Porcelain veneers offer a versatile and effective solution to a wide range of dental imperfections. They’re custom-made to enhance the appearance of your teeth, addressing issues like discoloration, chipping, misalignment, and more.
A veneer is a thin tooth-coloured shell fixed to the front of a tooth to mask discolouration, an irregular shape, damage or small gaps. They are usually fitted to the front upper and lower teeth and they can be used to enhance your smile and help to protect an affected tooth from further damage.
Veneers offer a minimally invasive way to transform your smile as only a very thin layer of enamel is removed (if any) prior to fitting.
Veneers can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile. They can cover teeth with stains, discoloration, or imperfections, resulting in a brighter, more attractive smile.
Porcelain veneers are designed to mimic the natural appearance of teeth. They are translucent and reflect light like natural enamel, creating a realistic and natural look.
Porcelain is highly resistant to staining, which means your veneers will maintain their whiteness and resist discoloration from foods, drinks, and tobacco.
With proper care, veneers can last for many years, providing a durable and lasting solution for smile enhancement.
Veneer placement is usually completed in just a few appointments, offering a relatively quick way to achieve a dramatically improved smile.
Veneers require minimal tooth reduction compared to other dental restorations like crowns. This preserves more of your natural tooth structure.

Next, your dentist will create a mock up to show you the design of your new smile. Once you're happy with the mock up, we then start preparing the teeth.
Once teeth are prepared, you will be given a set of temporary veneers. Your new veneers will then be designed to match your mock up.
Your dentist will then fit your new porcelain veneers. Once fitted, we will celebrate your new smile together! We'll also explain aftercare instructions.
