A treatment that was largely unknown until recent years, dental veneers have gained great popularity with patients seeking a perfect, long-lasting smile. Here we explain how dental veneers work, and why they offer such an efficient solution if you wish to improve the appearance of your teeth. 

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers (sometimes referred to as porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) comprise a thin layer of custom-made tooth-coloured material that is designed to cover the front surface of your teeth, thus improving their appearance.

Available in a customisable range of shades and sizes, Veneers are commonly used to conceal cosmetic dental issues such as broken or chipped teeth.

How are Dental Veneers fitted?

The expert team at the Bath Street Dental Surgery begin the procedure by carefully preparing your teeth; shaping them and taking a thin layer of enamel from the surface. This step is performed so the veneers won't look or feel too large or bulbous once they are fixed into place.

We then take an impression or mould of the area where the veneers will be fitted. These impressions are sent off to our specialist dental laboratory where the veneers will be created to the exact colour, shape and size required to create a flawless but natural look.

Once the veneers are ready, they will be bonded into place, forming part of your own teeth and providing a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

A truly transformative treatment

Dental veneers have gained popularity as they really can make a big difference to the way that teeth appear, not only improving a patient’s smile but also giving them a massive boost in confidence.

Veneers offer a versatile solution to a wide range of dental imperfections (including staining caused by drinking tea, coffee and red wine) and have the added benefit of offering a noticeable improvement in the appearance of your teeth in a short space of time.
