Natural Looking Porcelain & Composite Veneers
A veneer is a delicate slice of porcelain or composite that is made to precisely fit over the whole surface of your tooth. It has a primary purpose of improving the aesthetic appearance of the teeth and, subsequently, your smile. These can be placed over single or multiple teeth, although the latter is preferred in order to maintain consistency.
A consultation with one of our dedicated dentists will determine whether or not veneers are suitable and appropriate to achieve your desired result. Fitting veneers, in most cases, may require the outer enamel surface of the tooth to be removed before the veneers are bonded to the tooth with special adhesive.
In most cases, this is a painless procedure, but where more of the tooth’s surface needs to be removed, measures are taken to ensure comfort throughout, giving you absolute peace of mind. Dental veneers are a long-lasting cosmetic solution and, with correct care at home and with regular dental visits, they can last many years.
How long do veneers last?
Veneers generally last for decades, provided they’re looked after properly. Like natural teeth, veneers can still chip and break but the difference here is that a veneer can be repaired or replaced as and when needed. This would be a more complicated procedure if a damaged natural tooth needed to be restored.
Are veneers reversible?
If you’re considering having veneers, it’s important to note that dental veneers are irreversible. This is because our specialist dentists must remove a thin layer of the tooth enamel before they fit the veneer over the tooth. This would also be the case if you were having an entire set of veneers fitted.
How much do veneers cost?
Veneers are often considered to be an investment for most patients, although they still need to be looked after in much the same way you would take care of your natural teeth. Where the cost of veneers will vary depending on where you are having them done and on how many veneers you want fitting, Quorn Dental Practice and Implant Clinic will always recommend you come for an initial consultation where we can discuss whether veneers are right for you and, if you choose to go ahead, how much your veneers would cost.
