What are dental veneers?
Our cosmetic dentist in Bristol can carry out a popular non-surgical treatment using dental veneers to improve the colour, alignment and shape of your teeth, transforming the overall look of your smile quickly and comfortably.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. Like false fingernails, porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surface of the tooth with the unique ability to completely mask unattractive stains, while letting light through to appear entirely natural. Dental veneers can be created in a shade that matches your natural teeth, or they can also be changed to create a brighter, whiter shade as part of a smile makeover.
Can veneers fix my teeth?
Porcelain veneers can be used to correct:
- Discoloured/stained teeth
- Badly worn, chipped or fractured teeth
- Crooked teeth, making them look straighter
- Gaps (diastemas) between teeth
How much do veneers cost?
The cost of veneers can vary, depending on how many veneers are required for your case. For an accurate cost, please contact us to book an appointment for a consultation.
Dental veneers procedure
The procedure involves minimal preparation by cleaning and shaping the surface tooth enamel and an impression (mould) is then taken, which is used by the dental technician to create a plaster on which the veneer can be modelled.
At the next appointment, the veneer is ‘tried-in’ to check the fit and shape, and if the dentist and patient are happy with the overall effect, the veneer is cemented securely into place.
