Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers are thin porcelain sheets attached to the front of a prepared tooth (typically the upper or lower front teeth) to create a healthy tooth-like appearance over the top of any existing tooth.

While the preparation work and fitting of the final veneer is done by a dentist or specialist cosmetic dentist the actual veneer is made in a dental lab by dental technicians, in the clinic using a 3D printing device or pre made.

Dental Veneers are a purely cosmetic treatment, and are not intended to protect pr replace the tooth in any way like a tooth crown, tooth filling or dental implant.

Choosing a suitable clinic for: Dental Veneers

Choosing a suitable dental clinic for Dental Veneers starts with a correct smile diagnostics usually involving digital smile design techniques (DSD) supported by the experience of a cosmetic dentist and their specialised dental team.

The treatment should be performed in a dental clinic using proven, high-grade veneer materials such as zirconia or emax, and with an on-site dental lab for instant adjustments if possible.

As Dental Veneers are done in many regular dental clinics, it is also worthwhile looking at the level of comfort and extra services provided in your chosen dental clinic.

Temporary veneers should be provided for the time when you will be without a covered tooth, and at least a 5-year Dental Veneers guarantee is expected in leading dental clinics.

Reported patient feedback from patients who have had Dental Veneers in your particular chosen dental clinic is worth looking at.
