If you have discoloured, stained or crooked teeth and want to change your teeth, veneers could make you smile again.

Popularised by celebrities  and Hollywood stars, veneers are the ideal answer for transforming unattractive teeth into a lovely straight, white set of pearly whites.Porcelain veneers are thin laminates of enamel-type material which fixed or cemented to the tooth’s front surface to change the shape. size or appearance of teeth and improve your smile.They are also ideal for teeth which have an uneven shape or surface or for heavily discoloured teeth which may not respond to teeth whitening treatment.

An accurate shade match should be chosen to match and suit your already existing teeth so if your teeth are discoloured or yellow, you may wish to consider teeth whitening treatment before having veneers fitted to any teeth as you need the shade and colour match of all your teeth to blend and look naturally white at the completion of your cosmetic dentistry treatment.

Veneers are a suitable choice for the following dental problems:

  • Worn, chipped or damaged teeth
  • Stained Teeth which may not respond to laser dental whitening or professional tray whitening systems
  • Misaligned or Crooked teeth which are not severe enough a problem to require orthodontics or braces
  • Teeth with gaps between them

Choosing the best cosmetic dentist you can will be the most important decision to get good results;someone with experience, knowledge and understanding will be able to assess your case individually and tailor make the treatments by considering shades, shapes, symmetry and dimensions of your teeth and your face-and these factors will determine whether you end up with a beautiful and natural looking white smile or teeth which have just been ‘done’.
