A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of tooth-coloured ceramic material cemented onto the tooth surface. It improves the appearance of a stained or a chipped tooth or to protect a damaged or worn tooth surface.
When appropriate, you can also use porcelain veneers to improve the alignment or appearance of crooked, small or spaced teeth.
The appearance of teeth can be changed with minimal tooth preparation and the veneers can often be placed with the use of little or no local anaesthetic.
I have just had veneers fitted and the care and attention taken to every detail was amazing. Something I had put off for years – and now wish I had done earlier. No pain – just beautiful teeth. Lovely staff – always kind and helpful.
Lumineers are wafer thin porcelain veneers that are fixed over the original teeth and custom designed to give you a beautiful smile. Their translucent nature replicates the appearance of enamel and they can quickly solve a multitude of dental problems and issues. They are a long-term cosmetic solution for blemished, chipped, stained, or crooked teeth and can eliminate gaps, reshape teeth or simply brighten your smile. Lumineers can be placed on top of crowns and bridges and are often used as an additional treatment for renewing old dental work. In 90 percent of cases, no injections or drilling is necessary and are a great solution if you have sensitive teeth. Lumineers are proven to last for over 20 years, and they come with a 5-year guarantee of not decementing.
