The key to the smile you’ve always wanted

Veneers are incredibly thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to your existing teeth to cover up a multitude of imperfections – from crooked and discoloured teeth to chip, cracks and unsightly gaps. Dental veneers are engineered to your exact requirements using your dental impressions – so, with the help of your dentist, you get to choose the exact shape and shade you wish for your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are veneers?

Veneers are very thin layers of porcelain that can be laid over the top of your existing teeth to hide a multitude of imperfections. Custom-engineered to your requirements, veneers can be created to match the exact colour and shape you need to get the smile you’ve always wanted.

What can veneers do for me?

Veneers can cover up imperfections such as cracks, gaps and chips; hide deeply discoloured teeth; and correct the appearance of crooked teeth. Designed for the front ‘smiling’ teeth, veneers look completely natural and create an instant smile makeover. They can be used for all the front teeth, or just a single tooth.

How does the veneers treatment work?

Veneers require a preparation treatment, during which your dentist will file down your existing teeth to a depth proportionate to the thickness of your veneers – typically about half a millimetre. Dental impressions are taken so that your bespoke veneers can be engineered; when they are ready, your dentist will glue them firmly in place using a special curing light, and fine-tune their final shape. With good oral hygiene, your veneers should last for at least 10 years.

Are veneers painful?

Typically, no – though your dentist may recommend a local anaesthetic for the preparation procedure.

Are veneers right for me?

If you want to dramatically transform your smile in the shortest possible time, or if teeth whitening treatments won’t work for you, then it is definitely worth considering veneers. At Frankel Dental Care we’ll talk you through the options – it may be that you’ll need to consider a combined treatment, such as adult braces followed by veneers.
