If your teeth have any chipping, discolouration or are slightly misshapen or misaligned and you are in search of the ‘perfect Hollywood smile’ then porcelain veneers may be an option for you to consider. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are chemically bonded to your tooth. They are more conservative in design than crowns and can be used on strong, healthy teeth to improve their appearance and mask any aesthetic issues.
If you are not happy with your smile and would like to consider getting some porcelain veneers please mention this to your dentist. It is possible to get a range of colours and shapes with veneers so please be clear with us exactly what your expectations are and what concerns you most about your smile.
Two to three appointments would be required to prepare the teeth and fit the veneers. If you are unhappy with the colour or shape of the veneers at any time during this process, please discuss your concerns with us straight away so that we can resend them to the lab and attempt to get you closer to the smile you desire. Please be aware that once the veneer is cemented on to the tooth, it is very difficult to adjust the colour and shape.
