We can help you by fitting a strong veneer designed to match the size, shape and colour of your natural teeth.
A veneer is a very thin shell which is placed on the front surface of a tooth to easily change the appearance. The treatment involves minimal removal of the existing tooth enamel, ensuring the process is comfortable and pain-free. There is sometimes not even a need for local anaesthetic injections.
Often, we only need one standard appointment after your initial consultation for your veneer treatment, although in some cases it may take two. Following minimal preparation of the existing tooth, the custom-made veneer is attached with a strong dental adhesive.
Due to the highly accurate manufacturing process, the veneer fits perfectly, and there is often no need for further shaping once it is in place. We give it a polish to enhance the shine and ensure you are happy with the look.
At Aesthetique, all our veneers are produced from the highest quality materials, giving you confidence in their strength and longevity.
When looked after properly, veneers have the potential to last for many years before needing to be replaced. As some tooth enamel is removed to accommodate the veneer, the treatment is not reversible.
Veneers are generally a strong and resilient cosmetic dental choice, but do have the potential to break if not looked after properly. You can give them the best chance of lasting for many years by avoiding biting into very hard foods and not chewing any objects you shouldn’t, including pens, keys and ice.
Veneers are resilient, but could potentially be chipped or cracked if you bite into very hard foods. In general, you can eat any food you choose, but it is advisable to be careful with certain options, including crusty bread, raw vegetables and hard sweets and toffees.
The cost of veneers depends on how many you have fitted and the material used. Porcelain veneers tend to be the more expensive choice as they are more natural looking, blending seamlessly into the rest of your smile. At Aesthetique, veneers start from £550.
No, in fact many patients experience no pain or discomfort at all during treatment as the procedure is minimally-invasive. We make sure you are comfortable and relaxed before beginning treatment, and use local anaesthetic to numb the area. You may feel some sensitivity in the first few days following the procedure, but this is temporary.
Yes - you will still need to brush just as you would with your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can’t decay but the natural tooth underneath certainly can. Treat your veneer like a normal tooth and include it in your regular brushing and flossing routine to ensure the natural tooth underneath remains a strong and healthy foundation.
