One of the quickest and easiest ways to improve the shape, size and colour of your teeth is with porcelain veneers. Natural in appearance, strong and long-lasting, porcelain veneers are a popular choice for people who want to enhance their facial aesthetics. If you have healthy teeth and gums but are unhappy with the way your smile looks, you can have a beautiful new smile in just two visits with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain fitted over the front teeth. They are similar in concept to false fingernails, and can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic dental problems including:
- Teeth that are permanently stained and cannot be whitened
- Small gaps between the front teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth, when braces are not the best option
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Worn or eroded teeth
- Poorly shaped teeth
Porcelain veneers produce a beautiful white smile and are minimally invasive with very little preparation of the natural tooth needed. Our dentists are highly experienced in fitting veneers and are dedicated to continual professional development. They are three of Northern Ireland's most prominent cosmetic dentists.
Sandown Dental & Implant Clinic has long-standing relationships with highly skilled dental laboratories in the UK, where your veneers will be manufactured to the highest standard. We pride ourselves on using the latest treatment techniques, procedures and dental materials to ensure the best outcome for our patients.
At your first appointment, your dentist will either scan or take impressions of your teeth. We will talk through the results you want to achieve and your desired shade of porcelain, with most patients choosing to whiten their teeth prior to treatment to brighten their smile.
The scan or impressions will be sent to our partner dental laboratory for your veneers to be made.
Once they are ready, you will have your fit appointment. Your dentist will prepare the tooth and precisely place the veneer over your existing tooth using a strong, bonding material.
