Cosmetic dentist Dr Doshi answers how many veneers you’ll likely need for a full smile makever.

The number of veneers you need is typically worked out during your consultation – you might think you need a certain number, where we might need to place a few and then use other treatments like bonding or whitening to perfect the final look of the smile.

For a complete smile makeover, patients often choose to have 8 or 10 veneers per jaw – but it’s also rather typical to focus on the first six visible teeth of your smile. This is typically the number celebrities might opt for when wanting to improve the entirety of their smile. But it all depends on the look you want to achieve.

In regular cases, patients choose to have 4 veneers. This is because they have four major problem teeth they want to hide, and the rest can be improved using other inexpensive methods. In these cases, the corrected front teeth are uneven, crooked, or have gaps, but the back teeth are often in good alignment.

The patients here often want a natural smile that suits them and merges with the teeth that are not being treated. Here, we can whiten and brighten the lower in unison to blend with your smile.

Patients can always choose to have additional veneers in the future if they choose to.

Deciding on hoe many

Ask yourself these three questions:

  1. How big is your smile? How many teeth show?
  2. Are your teeth discoloured? Do you want your teeth to be whiter?
  3. Would you like to change the overall shape, size and contour of your teeth?
  4. How many teeth do you think need completely masking?

Ultrathin Veneers, Durathin Veneers and Lumineers involve no drilling or injections since no tooth is being cut.
