If you’re considering cosmetic dentistry to improve the look of your smile, one of the questions you may be asking yourself is “what are veneers?, and how are veneers applied to my teeth?” 

If you’re concerned with the discolouration, uneven shape, wear and tear or even the misalignment of your teeth (if your teeth are slightly crooked), dental veneers may be a suitable option for correcting such concerns. Porcelain veneers are designed to hug the front of your tooth, creating an new, straight and brighter smile. The material is safe and strong, yet has a semi-translucent appearance which reflects the natural appearance of enamel. 


How are veneers applied? – The procedure

The placement of dental veneers is a relatively quick and easy procedure, which is usually completed within a few appointments. We begin with a consultation with our lovely dentists who will assess and determine whether veneers are a suitable treatment option for your smile goals. 



Following the consultation, your dentist will work with our lab to create a beautiful smile tailored specifically for your needs. At the next appointment we will do a mock trial and make sure that the new smile ticks all the boxes of your dream smile.

1.  Preparing the teeth by reducing the enamel slightly and placing temporary resin
    veneers, whilst we wait for the lab to hand make each of your veneers.
2. The placement of your permanent, porcelain veneers.
