Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers in Shepperton

Dental veneers are made up of thin pieces of porcelain which are used to cover the entire surface of your tooth to improve its appearance.

Porcelain veneers can be used to improve the shape, size, length or colour of your tooth to give you a stunning smile. You can choose to have porcelain veneers for just one tooth, or many teeth in a smile makeover.

Patients from Shepperton, Chertsey, Littleton, Walton-on-Thames Upper Halliford, Lower Halliford, and throughout Surrey are choosing porcelain veneers for a dazzling Hollywood smile.

How do porcelain veneers work?

At the appointment after your free consultation, we will prepare your tooth by gently filing it. This is painless and allows the dental veneers to adhere firmly to your tooth.

We then take a set of impressions of your tooth, and we use this to create your unique veneers. We match the exact shade of porcelain to the rest of your teeth so that they blend in. Or if you’re having veneers for many teeth, you may choose a shade or two that is whiter and brighter.

Once your porcelain veneers are ready, we invite you back to the dental surgery in Shepperton where they are gently stuck on to your tooth. Finally, a special light is placed over your teeth to harden the veneers on to your tooth.

You can then show off your stunning new smile!

Dental veneers in Surrey FAQs

How long do porcelain veneers last for?
If you look after your veneers, they should last between 10 and 15 years. You should maintain a good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing and seeing your dentist and hygienist regularly for check-ups. You should avoid bad habits like smoking and biting down on hard objects like pen lids or sellotape which can risk chipping or damaging the veneers.
Does it hurt to get porcelain veneers?
No, it does not hurt to get porcelain veneers. The process is painless and minimally invasive. If you’re having many teeth treated with veneers your mouth may feel a little sore, but this will not last long.
What is the difference between dental veneers and dental bonding?
Dental veneers are made up of thin strips of material which cover the entire surface of the tooth. Dental bonding is made of a soft putty which is shaped and moulded to the tooth and so it can be used to disguise part or the whole tooth. If you’re unsure which treatment is best for you, we recommend booking a free consultation with one of our expert dentists who can talk through the options.
