Veneers in Manchester

Are your teeth stained, chipped, or not aligned on top of each other? Veneers are a good treatment option to consider because they look like natural teeth and don't require a major procedure. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps when braces are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.

Here is how they work:
  1. A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain (like a false finger nail, but more durable) that is bonded on top of your own tooth.
  2. Based on your needs, the shape and size of the veneers can be adjusted to make your teeth overall look longer and or closer together.
  3. You can have just one veneer fitted or a whole set, known as a smile makeover.
Life Benefits
  • Simple and quick solution to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth.
  • Long-lasting smile enhancement.
  • Natural-looking restoration.

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment that can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. They are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They are designed to improve the appearance of your teeth by covering imperfections such as chips, stains, and gaps.

Porcelain veneers have many benefits, including:

  • Improved appearance of teeth
  • Durability and strength
  • Stain resistance
  • Minimal tooth reduction
  • Long-lasting results

Porcelain veneers can last up to 10-15 years with proper care, such as regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups. However, they may need to be replaced sooner if they are damaged or become loose.

No, the process of getting porcelain veneers is typically not painful. However, some patients may experience sensitivity during the preparation phase when a small amount of enamel is removed from the tooth.

The process of getting porcelain veneers typically takes two to three appointments. The first appointment involves a consultation and preparation, while the second appointment involves the placement of the veneers.

Porcelain veneers require regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups to maintain their appearance and longevity. It is also important to avoid biting hard objects or using teeth as tools, as this can damage the veneers.

Yes, porcelain veneers can be removed, but the process can be complex and may result in damage to the underlying tooth. It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of veneer removal with your dentist before making any decisions.

Good candidates for porcelain veneers are those with healthy teeth and gums who have cosmetic concerns such as chips, stains, or gaps in their teeth. It is important to have a consultation with our dentist to determine if porcelain veneers are the right option for you.

The first step of fitting veneers is to prepare the tooth or teeth for them. The dentist will remove a tiny bit of enamel from the surface of the tooth and then make an impression, which will be sent off to a laboratory. At the laboratory, the veneer is crafted according to the dentist’s instructions and records. The porcelain material is strong yet thin, making it an ideal fit for teeth veneers.

After the lab creates your custom-made veneers, you’ll go back in for a second appointment so that they can be fitted onto your teeth. Once they are placed on your teeth, they may need some slight trimming or shaping to ensure they fit comfortably and look natural within your mouth. Lastly, to completely secure them in place, the dentist will bond or cement them with a special adhesive onto your natural teeth. After these treatments have been completed, you'll be free to enjoy the benefits of veneers!
