VeneersYou can take your smile from faded to fantastic with bright, natural-looking veneers.The aging process, combined with what we eat, drink & smoke, can really take its toll on your teeth, making the enamel look thin, worn or discoloured. Wear & tear to your dentition can age your entire face, but with veneers, you can have the straight, white smile you have always dreamed of.
Veneers are thin slivers of porcelain, which are permanently bonded to the front surface of the teeth. Veneers can be used to change the shape, size & colour of the teeth with little or no need for tooth filing involved. Veneers look beautiful & natural & can last for 10-15 years.
Veneers are bonded to your teeth so that the fit, shape & colour look totally natural, & lets you smile with confidence.
We can also make veneers & laminates in composite resin, a process which is known as composite bonding. This is usually completed in one visit & will transform your smile instantly. This material doesn’t last as long as porcelain but will look good for 6-8 years.
A badly broken or heavily filled tooth can become weak & can ruin the appearance of your smile. A simple crown will work wonders for both the strength & appearance of your teeth.
A crown is like a crash helmet for your tooth, making it stronger in the long term as well as smoothing out the way it looks. Having a crown fitted involves your dentist taking an impression of your existing tooth so that the shape can be perfectly matched to your new crown for a comfortable, secure & natural looking fit. Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials, such as porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold, but our dentists recommend porcelain crowns because they are the most natural looking & can be made completely indistinguishable from natural teeth giving you a fantastic smile.
New crown materials include Procera, which is a modern crown made of all porcelain, produced using cutting edge cad-cam technology to produce a crown that is extremely strong & looks great.
Whatever your choice of material, our dentist will explain the process to you in full & help you to get the best crown.
