Indirect Veneer
Dental veneers are wafer thin porcelain veneer that fit over your teeth. Once in place veneers are indistinguishable from natural teeth. Treatment is very straightforward. Minimal shaping of the front surface of the tooth is carried out before your veneers are made the right shape and shade to suit you. At a second visit your veneers are bonded to your teeth and your new smile is complete.

Direct Veneer
A natural colour ‘composite’ filling material is built up over the tooth to improve the appearance of your teeth.
Direct Veneers are a good choice if you have a small crack or chip in a tooth as they will hide this as well as protecting the rest of the tooth. They may be cheaper but they are not as durable as other types of veneers which mean that they will have to be replaced more often. Typically, a direct composite veneer lasts no more than 2 years.
Direct Veneers are more prone to staining or discolouration than other veneers. Their relative weakness means that they are more likely to break or fall off your tooth and they are not as natural looking as the other types of veneers.

Why do I need a Veneer?
• Your have teeth that are discoloured.
• When you smile your teeth are worn.
• Chipped or broken teeth embarrasses you.
• You do not smile because your teeth are misaligned or misshaped.
• When you smile you cover your mouth because you have a gapy smile

Are veneers right for you?
There are a number of dental conditions that can be successfully resolved using veneers. In some cases, veneers are successful where other treatments are not appropriate; for example for discolouration that does not respond to whitening or where patients are not suitable for Invisalign to correct crooked teeth or gaps between the teeth.

Veneers are a very versatile treatment, providing a brighter, whiter, straighter smile for almost anyone.Contact us today for dental veneers prices on 01635569291.
