Any treatment we do is always aimed at protecting your teeth from any harm and to prevent any future damage from occurring.
If we consider aesthetic work like veneers for you then we do so in a way that achieves the aesthetics but also at the same time, that the treatment is also healthy and beneficial for you in the long term.
If veneer treatment is done well, following the proper protocols and standards then there should be no reason to fear it.
Once upon a time, porcelain had to be of a certain thickness otherwise there would be an increased risk of breakage. So, in order to allow for the thickness of porcelain either the teeth ended up looking very thick or we had to cut into the teeth to make space for the porcelain. This treatment was then reserved for people who understood this situation.
However, nowadays, thanks to innovative technologies we have been able to compress porcelain in ingenious ways that we no longer need to do as much tooth preparation as before. With treatments like Ultrathin Veneers we have managed to compress porcelain in such a way so that we can create very thin (contact lens-thin) veneers.
We fully understand that the more dentistry you have done the weaker your teeth become. For this reason, we take much time in planning, assessing and analyzing that the treatment options we discuss with you will provide long-term stability and harmony to your mouth. Repair your teeth with us today.
We also base all our work on a healthy foundation and help you to sustain that condition in your mouth
On top of this when we do the actual treatment it is in the most conservative and preservative way possible, using clinically proven techniques and superior materials. The bonding materials and strengths that are used to bond veneers onto your teeth are innovative, cutting edge and extremely strong. This ensures long lasting, comfortable treatment that is also cost effective for you.
If porcelain veneers are carried out in inexperienced hands (both the dentist and the laboratory technician) then you can end up with increased tooth preparation and an inferior quality of veneers. This introduces weaknesses in the veneers, the veneer bonding to the teeth and the actual teeth as well. Subsequently, you may need these veneers replaced or further work done to the teeth introducing further weaknesses. It is much better for teeth that we look very carefully and plan with future conservation in mind.
Another aspect that ensures the success of veneers is the proper selection of the treatment. There are now so many different types of veneers, materials and brands on the market that it is essential to select that treatment which is the most compatible for the patient. This ensures long-lasting treatment. At the Perfect Smile we will ensure you choose the right veneers for your smile.
For this reason, a proper comprehensive assessment is necessary in order to establish the correct Treatment Plan that is customized to you. Aftercare
Another important point is that dentists that are highly trained, skilled and knowledgeable in veneer treatment carry out the treatment. You will be pleased to know that all our dentists have been doing these treatments for many years.
In fact, all of them are recognized as eminent leaders in the field of aesthetic dentistry through their teaching and training of other dentists. They are also members of the largest aesthetic organization in the industry called the British Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry. Our dentists are either past presidents, committee members or on the Board of Directors. Reasons to have veneers.
No preparation or minimal preparation
Our aim will always be to do no preparation or minimal preparation veneer treatment. This is the main reason why our dentist set about establishing Ultrathin Veneers.

These are contact lens-thin veneers that have beautiful aesthetics and that are extremely strong when bonded too. We also always provide you with conservative options such as Short-term Adult Orthodontics which align the teeth correctly before any veneer treatment is considered. All these choices minimize any damage to teeth.
It is imperative that if you are considering this type of treatment you must ensure that the correct treatment planning is carried out that is completely compatible with your situation. This means that prior to the selection of any treatment you must have a comprehensive detailed assessment carried out.
Many of our patients also find it useful to have a complimentary consultation beforehand to get an idea of the types of treatment available at one of our consulting rooms in London or Hertfordshire.

Veneers are usually not painful whilst you are having the treatment.
However, some have reported slight sensitivity during the settling down period after the final fitting. This is quite normal and nothing to worry about. It usually only lasts for a few days and very soon after subsidies. More.
The sensitivity is due to the bonding process where an inorganic substance (the veneer) has been bonded to an organic component (your tooth).
In complex cases, involving a large amount of treatment, you may experience a little uncomfortableness while your teeth settle down.
Fast, simple, pain-free process

Simple, transparent pricing
A few factors will affect the total cost of your cosmetic veneers:
- The type of material used – Porcelain (Ultrathin or Lumineers ) are more expensive than composite resin veneers.
- The number of veneers being applied – veneers are priced per tooth and so the more you have, the higher the cost.
- Your dental health – if you require treatment for other dental issues such as tooth decay or gum disease before veneers can be fitted then this will be included in the total cost of your dentistry work. More.
