Developments and advances in the cosmetic dentistry mean there is now the availability of a vast array of dental treatments which can help address every type of cosmetic defect to your teeth and smile.

One of the most widely used treatments in cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers is the use of Porcelain veneers to change the shape, size, orientation and appearance of teeth.

Dental veneers are slithers or fingernails of porcelain which are attached to the surface of the teeth. They are used like a thin layer on tooth surface to hide cracks, repair damage, change colour or create a new shape or size to a tooth. They are often also used to fill  gaps or spaces between a  tooth.

For people who are unhappy with their smiles, dental veneers and crowns are often utilised in smile makeovers. Wax models of the teeth are taken and new veneers or crowns can be created using these models. The new veneers or crowns can be made to look natural, aesthetic and of a very high quality and achieve a great result in a smile transformation.

For patients who cannot undertake laser tooth whitening treatment, dental veneer are also an altrnative to achieve whiter teeth. The chosen shade of white is selected for the dental veneers which are then fixed or attached directly onto the tooth surface to change the colour of the existing teeth.

Dental veneers are available in porcelain and composite. Porcelain dental veneers can last for up to 15 years with good dental aftercare.
