A Dental Veneer is a facing placed on the front aspect of your teeth, most often the top front teeth. Veneers are made from Porcelain, and mainly used to improve the appearance of your teeth, thus falling under Cosmetic Dentistry. Veneers are also used to eliminate small gaps, where Orthodontic Dentistry (braces) is not a suitable option. We may also use Veneers if a tooth is slightly out of position, bringing it in line with your other natural teeth.
Porcelain Veneers specifically, require very little groundwork and is improves the colour, shape and position of your teeth, eliminating the need for other more invasive treatments such as braces.
Our Team uses the latest minimal preparation techniques along with only using the best materials and national Laboratories to produce beautiful Veneers for your teeth.
At 53 Wimpole Street, our Dentists, Sam Hassan and Bhavin Patel will explain and discuss all your clinical options with you, before deciding on treatment with Porcelain Veneers.
Why choose Veneers?
1. Porcelain Veneers are a great choice if you are looking to enhance the appearance of your teeth to make them look natural and healthy.
2. These Veneers are thin and undetectable once placed.
3. If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or misaligned, veneers can be used to provide a natural appearance with minimal adjustment of teeth.

What is a veneer?
A Veneer is a wafer thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. In some cases a composite material will be used instead of Porcelain.
When would I need a Veneer?
If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or misaligned, veneers can be used to provide a natural appearance with minimal adjustment of teeth.
Veneers are also used to close small gaps, when Orthodontic Dentistry (braces) are not suitable. If a tooth is slightly out of position, Veneers are sometimes fitted to bring it into line with your natural teeth.
How long does a Veneer last?
Veneers can last for several years; but like your own teeth, they may chip or break. At 53 Wimpole Street, our Dental Team will be able to advise you how long each veneer should last. Small chips can be repaired, or we can fit a new veneer fitted if needed.
What are the advantages of Veneers?
Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. They are very thin and held in place by strong adhesive, making them hard wearing. Very little preparation of teeth is necessary. In some cases Veneers won’t need any preparation at all.
How are teeth prepared for a veneer?
Some of outer enamel surface of the tooth may be removed, ensuring the Veneer can be bonded permanently to the tooth. The amount of enamel removed is slight and is the same as the thickness of the Veneer that will be placed. A local anaesthetic may be used, but often this is not necessary. Once the tooth has been prepared, an impression is made of the tooth. This is given to our dedicated Dental Technician, and the exact colour of the Veneer is matched to the surrounding teeth on a shade guide, ensuring the Veneer looks completely natural and undetectable.
