Veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their colour, shape, size or length.
The number of veneers you have will depend on the level of perfection you are looking for. Usually, we veneer the teeth from the centre outwards and do them in multiples of two so that you always have symmetry. An average treatment we do is 4-10 veneers on the front teeth and a whitening treatment on the rest so that your whole smile gets a lift without having to veneer every tooth.
In most cases, just 2 pain-free appointments are needed to complete the veneering process. The appointments last on average 90 minutes. We endeavour to make the whole experience as pain-free and relaxed as possible. Modern techniques mean that, even if you do require local anaesthetic, this can be undertaken with the minimum amount of discomfort – no more than a scratch is all you will feel, and you'll be able to return to work pretty much straight away.
