Put The Smile Back On Your Face With Our Porcelain Veneers
The Benefits Of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers have become an increasingly popular option among patients looking to enhance their smile. Dental veneers come under the bracket of cosmetic dentistry. A veneer is a thin moulding, custom-made from porcelain or resin-composite materials which are then permanently bonded to your teeth.
If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or misaligned, porcelain dental veneers can help you recreate and improve your teeth’s appearance. Veneers are a quick and effective solution to stained, chipped, misshapen or crooked teeth.
They cover only the front surface of the tooth and will mimic the size, shape and colour of your teeth, creating a very natural look.
Dental veneers can make your teeth look natural and healthy whilst also treating a number of different cosmetic concerns. For instance, chipped, broken, discoloured, or smaller-than-average teeth. Very little preparation is required for dental veneers at Grosvenor Practise. Many patients opt for between 6 and 8 veneers to create that even symmetrical smile.
Why Choose Dental Veneers?
Veneers provide a very natural finish. Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape, and position of teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give you the right smile match. These can either blend and improve a single discoloured tooth or multiple. The porcelain finish also mimics the light-reflecting qualities of natural teeth, helping you achieve a brighter, natural -looking smile.
Veneers can also be used to close small gaps when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a porcelain veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others. Veneers offer a gentler approach to altering a tooth’s shape or colour than crowns. Only a small amount of enamel has to be removed to fit the veneer. Yet they offer similar strength and very natural looking results.
Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and are held in place by a special, strong adhesive, very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of veneers don’t need any preparation at all.
How Are Veneers Fitted?
Dental veneers are an investment. It’s an irreversible procedure that changes your natural teeth, so you need to be sure that they’re the right option for you. Veneers are considered a long-term solution to imperfect teeth, once you’ve had them fitted. It can take a few weeks to get used to the new feel of having dental veneers.
Dental veneer treatments carried out at our Stoke-on-Trent dental practise can be used to treat several issues. Dental veneers can put that winning smile back on your face without breaking the bank too. You’ll first have a consultation with our professional team of dentists. We will ensure a veneer is the correct treatment for you. Once this has been agreed, impression of your teeth will be taken and your tooth can be prepared to hold the veneer.
Your dentist will then take an impression of your mouth so that a bespoke veneer can be created to fit your tooth perfectly. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look and it is affecting the way you smile, veneers are the perfect treatment for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored 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 color, shape, size, or length.
What Are The Benefits Of Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers can help improve the overall appearance of teeth that are stained, chipped, misshapen, or misaligned. They can also be used to close gaps between teeth or to reduce tooth sensitivity.
Are Teeth Shaved Down For Veneers?
With no-preparation veneers, there is no removal or shaving your natural teeth required, and the veneers are fitted directly over your existing natural teeth. Before placing them permanently, your dentist checks the final veneer’s fit and appearance.
What Happens To Teeth Under Veneers?
The teeth under your veneers can still accumulate plaque and tartar, which means they may eventually develop tiny holes in them. If cavities develop, they might not be able to support your veneers after your dentist treats the decay.
Can You Take Veneers Off?
Porcelain veneers can be removed and leave the tooth somewhat intact depending on the skill of the dentist, but there should not be any reason to do this. If the consultation with your dentist was comprehensive and your veneers were high quality and properly fitted to begin with, they shouldn’t need to be removed anytime soon.
Do You Need Straight Teeth For Veneers?
You do not need perfectly straight teeth or even bite before veneers are applied. However, If your front teeth do overlap a lot, it is probably best to have those teeth straightened so that your veneers can be applied to the whole surface of each relevant tooth
