Many film stars, pop stars and presenters have chosen veneers as they can transform your smile!
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their colour, shape, size, or length. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get your veneers?
Usually preparing the veneer takes one session in the dental chair. First we prepare the front side of the teeth. Then, after grinding the teeth an impression is taken and the technician creates the porcelain veneer.
Is it painful and safe?
In most cases the dentist does not need to alter existing dental structure so there is no need for anaesthesia and the veneers placements is painless. Teeth remain intact and unchanged, therefore the treatment is completely safe.
What if I get caries on one of my teeth?
No problem: the dentist can handle it on the inside or from the bottom.
How can I best take care of my veneers?
To protect your stunning white teeth, conscientious dental hygiene is a main factor. Brushing your teeth correctly twice a day is indispensable and flossing is also part of the daily routine. Go see the dentist at least twice a year for a check-up.
Can I still eat anything I want?
With veneers you can still eat everything. You only have to avoid point-to-point contact.
