What are Veneers?

Many film star’s TV personalities and actors have chosen porcelain veneers, and the treatment doesn’t cost as much as you think. If you have unsightly gaps, chipped or crooked, stained or discoloured teeth dental veneers could transform your life!

The procedure is extremely straightforward and the amount of enamel removed is minimal and will be the same as the thickness of the veneer to be fitted so that the tooth stays the same size. Once the tooth has been prepared, the dentist will take an ‘impression’ (mould). This will be given to the dental technician, along with any other information needed to make the veneer.

Chrissie Knight
My partner has been seeing Jo and Gill for years as she had a lot of nervousness about dentists but thinks they are great. I'd not been to a dentist in 10 years but she persuaded me, I saw Dr Shah for a filling and was very happy with his professionalism and manner. I now go regularly like a good patient and would recommend them.
William Davies
I have been seeing Jo for approximately 3 years now. She is very calming and trusting as she works and as someone who is a little nervous at the dentist this is extremely comforting. She has been great with my girls (3 and 5), they in fact LOVE going to the dentist. Her magic wand and chair have them mesmerised!

I had my first consultation today with Dr Shah. He did a very thorough examination and explained his findings and treatment plan clearly with the aid of photographs and x-ray pictures. Given the quality of the service the fees are very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do porcelain veneers stain with normal things like tea, coffee and wine?

In almost all instances, veneers shouldn’t stain. But it’s important to take into consideration the propensity your teeth have to staining. If you are someone whose teeth are known to stain very easily, then after you have had your dental veneers fitted you should make an attempt to avoid or at least cut down on the kind of foods and behaviours that can lead to stained teeth. Here at Parkfield Dental, we always recommend that you look after your dental veneers as you would your natural teeth with proper oral hygiene and dental care.  

This can change from patient to patient, and we always recommend that you speak to your dentist for a more clear picture. The dental veneer itself is artificial and non-living – as such, decay of the veneer is not something you need to worry about. But the tooth or teeth to which your dental veneers are attached, along with the surrounding gum tissue, are all living and subject to change over the years. Tooth decay or gum link shrinkage can lead to the veneer becoming weakened or may expose root surfaces. 

If you are worried about losing your veneer, know that should it come off in an accident or otherwise, dental veneers can often be re-bonded to the teeth. If it is chipped or damaged, it can sometimes be re-bonded, or it may need replacing.

If you are worried about needing to give your veneers special care, then rest assured that the process is not very different to how you care for your natural permanent teeth. Brush and floss as you usually would in order to avoid dental problems – we recommend brushing twice daily for two minutes, along with daily flossing. If you grind your teeth at night, it can be an excellent idea to wear a bite guard whilst sleeping as this can damage your veneers just as it would grind down your natural teeth. 

Porcelain veneers are one of the kindest cosmetic dentistry procedures and restorations to gum tissues currently available in modern dentistry. As such, you shouldn’t worry about damaging your veneers through usual oral hygiene and dental care. Non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste works well. 

Porcelain veneers are incredibly strong, but it is worth remembering that porcelain is a ceramic and is capable of cracking under very strong pressure. This is why we always recommend to avoid eating and chewing exceptionally hard foods such as nuts, almonds, ice and more. Essentially, things that could potentially damage your natural permanent teeth could also damage your dental veneers.

If you have stained, discoloured, chipped, misaligned, worn down or irregularly shaped teeth, then dental veneers could be a fantastic option. Veneers often require filing down your tooth enamel to be replaced with the porcelain or composite veneer, meaning that they cover up your existing teeth. This makes them an incredibly popular option for anyone who wants to achieve their dream smile – they are a common part of our smile makeover treatments. Dental veneers are known for being a very popular option among celebrities! Also, porcelain veneers are a very popular and effective option for those hoping to close a gap between their front teeth. 

However, if you are suffering from extensive tooth decay, it is not recommended to seek to cover this up with dental veneers. You may require a consultation and dental care work before being considered viable for dental veneers first.

Veneers are commonly used to close gaps between natural teeth and to correct small or minor misalignments in your teeth. When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers are a popular option because they can improve the shape and alignment of your teeth while also providing an alternative to traditional tooth whitening at the same time. In fact, ceramic veneers are a popular solution for those hoping to improve the brightness of their smile. This dual purpose is one of the reasons that dental veneers are a popular option and are often part of our smile makeovers. 

As alarming as it may initially be, you shouldn’t worry if one of your veneers comes off. Of course, it’s very rare that a veneer should become totally detached, but this does sometimes happen. We recommend that you attempt to save the veneer itself if at all possible, but do not attempt to reattach the veneer yourself under any circumstance. Get in touch with your dentist as soon as possible and you will be advised as to what you should do next. It may be possible to have your veneer re-bonded or replaced relatively quickly. In the meantime, your tooth may be more sensitive to cold foods and liquids while the veneer is detached.

One of the main advantages to dental veneers as a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure is that the preparation of the veneers will preserve a great deal of the tooth structure of your permanent teeth. For improved bond strength for the veneers, it is usually only necessary to remove a thin outer layer of tooth enamel – doing this makes the bond strength better while also improving the appearance of the veneer. 

The dental veneer procedure is incredibly straightforward and easy – sometimes the entire process can be performed without the use of local anesthetic. However, for most procedures and for those patients that are nervous or anxious, local anesthetic can be applied to numb the given area. 

Dental veneers can boost the appearance of your teeth a great deal, and gum tissue actually responds very well to the application of dental veneers. The colour of your dental veneers can also be custom selected in order to best match the natural colour of your permanent teeth, offering a seamless smile.
