Not everyone has perfectly straight and white teeth

This can be because of many factors, genetics, trauma or decay.

We can help you! Dental veneers are one of the many treatments that we offer to help you to achieve your perfect smile.

First let’s discuss what veneers are:

Dental veneers are tooth coloured coverings which sit on the front of your tooth. They’re thin and coloured to blend in. Veneers cover up imperfections such as chips, tooth decay, stains or crooked teeth.

  • There are two different types of veneers, composite or resin.
  • These are both made in the in-house dental laboratory on site by our skilled technician Jiri Matl.
  • Both composite resin and porcelain veneers have their own benefits.
  • Composite resin veneers require less tooth enamel removal than porcelain, cost less than their alternatives, can be applied in one visit and are easily fixable if damaged.
  • Porcelain veneers are strong and resilient once placed, do not easily stain, look natural and require less enamel removal than crowns.

Your dentist can advise which one is best for you.

What does the procedure envolve?
If you choose to have dental veneers at your appointment your dentist will, using a bur gently buff the dental enamel from your tooth to create a surface for the veneer to bond on. They will then take impressions and put on a temporary veneer for you to go home with. 2 weeks later your permanent veneer will be placed and you will have a fantastic new smile!
Does it hurt?
You will be given a local anaesthetic before the treatment so you wont feel anything. You might have some slight sensitivity after the veneer is placed but this will soon stop.
How do I care for my new veneers?
Caring for your veneers is the same as caring for your teeth. A good cleaning routine and regular visits to your dentist and hygienist is a must.
Make sure that you floss and use fluoride toothpaste on a daily basis.
How long will it last?
Porcelain is one of the most widely used materials for veneers, as it is easily shaped and it is very durable. Porcelain veneers will often last up to ten years. Veneers can also be made from composite materials, which are a cheaper alternative. Composite veneers may only last two years.
