Dental Veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers are ideal for teeth that are severely discoloured, chipped or misshapen and give a perfect natural looking smile.
We only use the highest standard of materials (Lava, Empress, E-Max, Da Vinci, Lumineers and Procera Veneers) which make these veneers appear completely natural.
Porcelain veneers are ideal if you have:
- Gaps in between your teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Crooked or uneven teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Short or worn teeth
- Protruding or "goofy" teeth
- Twisted or rotated teeth
Porcelain veneer treatments are tailored to your exact requirements. We will ensure we understand your desires and expectations and work out a treatment plan with you.
At the first appointment, we take an impression or mould of your teeth in order to create a dental diagnostic wax-up model. We use this model to show you what your teeth and smile are going to look like before starting any dental work.
At your next appointment, we are ready to start work. We will minimally prepare your teeth to the ideal shape in preparation for your veneers. An impression or mould is taken of your prepared teeth. You will wear hand crafted temporary veneers, whilst your permanent veneers are being made.
We send your moulds together with the shade of your teeth to our highly skilled laboratory technician for your veneers to be made. Veneers are available in a wide choice of colours from Hollywood white to more natural tooth colours. The choice is yours.
You can "trial" your new smile and experience how your new teeth will look and feel. We can make any adjustments to your final veneers at this stage.
In the second appointment, we gently remove the temporary veneers. Your beautifully made porcelain veneers are bonded with special dental cement. We check the fit and how you bite to ensure a perfect fit.
Porcelain veneers don’t just require excellent skills and materials. They are based on a number of principles. You can read more about these smile principles here.
The cosmetic benefits of porcelain veneers are numerous, making it one of the most popular options for people looking for a natural looking smile.
- Porcelain veneers are used to correct problems with crooked or gappy teeth, avoiding the need for lengthy treatment with braces
- Cracked or broken teeth can be strengthened with a veneer
- Porcelain veneers create a brighter, whiter smile
You may be aware of your new veneers for the first few days. This is completely normal and you will get used to them after a few days.
Your porcelain veneer makeover will look completely natural and blend in well with your natural teeth.
On average your veneers will last 10 to 15 years or more. However, it does depend on you and how well you look after your veneers, your other teeth and gums. Regular dental check ups and visits with our hygienist will help.
We understand that price is an important consideration. Like any dental treatment, the cost of your porcelain veneers is dependant on the number of teeth that need treatment, the complexity of your treatment, the quality of the materials used, the skill of the dental technician and the artistic ability of your cosmetic dentist.
When you come to see us for your first consultation, we will determine the most appropriate treatment for you and provide you with a treatment plan and cost.

Porcelain veneers are just one option for a smile makeover. Cosmetic bonding, our one hour smile makeover, or braces might suit you better.
Our dentists will give you the best advice, so you can be sure you are in safe hands.
