What types of veneers are there?

Veneers can be made from either composite resin or ceramic, both of which have their own advantages.

  • Ceramic is a very thin and hard type of glass, which means that your veneers will be shiny and bright. Ceramic is also more resistant to staining so it’s an excellent low-maintenance option.
  • Composite resin is made from a similar substance that is used in fillings and are tooth-coloured. However, as it is porous it is more liable to stain so regular polishing is recommended to keep them looking tip-top

Your Veneer Journey With Us

What to expect during your veneer treatment

Book a consultation

As every case is different, you will have an initial consultation appointment where we will spend some time to fully understand your cosmetic wishes and make sure you are suitable for treatment.

We will then carry out a full assessment of your oral health to make sure you are dentally fit before providing you with a bespoke treatment plan detailing all appointments and costs from the outset.

Once treatment has been planned and your bonding appointment scheduled, it is often completed in a single appointment meaning you will walk out with the smile you want on the same day!

Frequently Asked Questions

As we are placing a layer on the teeth, we would expect the composite veneers to remain functional and aesthetic for anywhere from 3-5 years before replacement may be required. However, in some cases, polishing appointments can be carried out to prolong the life of the composite veneers. As with any treatment it is important to maintain good oral hygiene, minimise dark and pigmented foods and drinks to reduce the amount of staining, and of course avoid smoking!

Generally, veneers require two visits: one to shape the teeth and one to cement these natural looking veneers to the teeth. Between visits, your dentist can place attractive provisional veneers to help prevent sensitivity, allow function, and provide a nice smile. These provisional veneers are designed to be in your mouth for a limited time but should be comfortable until your new veneers are completed.
