High-Quality Veneers From Our Leading Award-Winning Clinic

Many patients feel uncomfortable and unhappy with the appearance of their smile.

We often meet patients with serious oral health concerns that are in need of treatment to prevent further oral complications.

However, their main goal is to fix and improve the aesthetics of their smile.

This is entirely understandable as we understand that smile imperfections can dramatically affect your self-confidence, even prompting some patients to avoid smiling altogether.

That’s why treatments like veneers are so successful – because they treat common causes of poor oral hygiene and states whilst also drastically improving appearances.

With many materials, brands and types of veneers available, it can be difficult to understand and choose which one is the right choice for you.

Our specialist cosmetic dentists have provided a guide of all veneer types to explain the differences between them to help you gain a better understanding.

Which Veneers Are Best For You?

We offer a wide range of veneers that can suit the needs of various individuals.

Each type of treatment boasts its own advantages, but generally, veneers are the ideal treatment to improve not only your appearance but oral health and hygiene.

They treat a wide variety of issues, including crooked teethdiastema, malocclusions, overbites and many more oral concerns.

This is because they help create a strong, healthy, stable foundation.

Veneer Materials:
Composite, Porcelain And Laminate? Which Is Best?

Composite is crafted from an acrylic resin which is bonded onto your tooth and is generally a more affordable option to porcelain.

Porcelain veneers are made from thin but tough pieces of tooth coloured porcelain that are designed individually in a dental laboratory to patient specification. Often the most recommended and go-to choice for veneer applications because the material is high-quality, very strong and durable.

  • Immediate/Instant Veneers: Best for fast results and quick recovery, the thickness is 0.3mm, can be fitted in a single visit, and are often the most affordable option (starting from £600 per tooth).
  • Durathin Veneers: No-prep, very thin veneers (0.5 mm), fitted in two appointments.
  • Ultrathin veneers: Incredibly thin (between 0.2 and 0.4 mm), require very little tooth preparation or shaving and are bonded directly to teeth.

Choosing The Veneer Colour And Right Shade Of White

We recommend selecting a shade for your veneers that is about two shades lighter than your natural teeth.

You can combine veneers with tooth whitening treatments for your natural teeth to ensure that your smile is seamless and stands out.

Standardised dental colour charts with a wide range of tones are used to select the exact shade of your veneers.

Picking the Correct Tooth Shape for You

Veneers are designed and made specifically for each client’s teeth.

Our expert cosmetic dentists use the latest digital smile design software to simulate your new smile.

This will result in veneers that create a natural-looking smile to complement perfectly and balance your face shape.

“After several months trying to find a one-stop-shop who were experts in all dental work, I found The Perfect Smile Studios. From start to finish, the service was outstanding with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere which is ideal for any nervous patient; they provide you with many options to choose from with transparent costs and a step-by-step explanation. A massive thank you to Dr Bloom for transforming my new Smile.”

Pain-free Treatments

Veneers are usually not painful whilst you are having the treatment.

However, some have reported slight sensitivity during the settling down after the final fitting – this is quite normal and nothing to worry over. 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) 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.

Treatment Plan
  • At your first appointment, your dentist will look at the general health of your teeth and gums, your bite and understand your goals for your smile; and then see if any fundamental issues need addressing before cosmetic veneer work can begin.
  • We will also discuss the type of veneers that may be suitable and how many veneers you’ll likely need to achieve your desired smile. In some patients, it may be possible to get some veneers placed at an initial phase and then have the possibility of additional shells in the future.

More.

Minimal or No Preparation
  • We will always plan your new smile before any treatment begins. We aim to provide you with the most conservative and preservative dentistry.
  • To prevent excessive tooth preparation, we design your new smile in a way that minimises tooth preparation. We also provide options to have orthodontic or teeth straightening treatment carried out before any cosmetic veneer work starts.
  • Your teeth are already well aligned, so very minimal or hardly any tooth preparation becomes necessary.
  • If you are concerned, we advise that you speak to us in your complimentary consultation. We will be able to provide you with suitable solutions. More.

Veneer Costs

Treatment Cost
£600 to £750 per tooth
£600 to £750 per tooth
£850 to £950 per tooth

Benefits include:

  • Non-invasive treatment: requires little tooth preparation beforehand, so teeth are not weakened.

  • Drill-free: Drills are only used sparingly to help with bonding.

  • Customised, patient-specific smile: Veneers can be used along with other subtle changes in your smile or a complete set of veneers and create a more extreme smile makeover. All treatments will leave you with a beautiful straight smile.

  • Impressive cosmetic results:  We use porcelain material to create beautiful aesthetic results. Ultrathin veneers are a unique and popular cosmetic dentistry solution.

  • Does not increase teeth sensitivity: Since hardly any enamel is removed, you are less likely to experience sensitivity in your teeth post-treatment.
