What are dental veneers?

A dental veneer is a thin layer of material that is made to fit over a tooth. Drastically changing the appearance of your smile, our experienced dentists will be able to offer you advice and guidance on whether dental veneers might be suitable for you. Each set of veneers is based on the unique requirements of each patient, tailored to your natural smile.

Why might you need dental veneers?

Dental veneers are the ideal treatment option for improving the following:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Irregularly in shaped teeth

Available in a wide variety of colours, sizes and shapes, dental veneers can be tailored to enhance your individual smile in a way that suits you. With natural and refreshing results, dental veneers are a popular choice.

Types of dental veneers available:

There are two types of dental veneers available at our Northamptonshire practice.

  1. Porcelain veneers – long-lasting and natural-looking restorations that are crafted in the finest detail to look just like natural teeth. Made by our specialist technicians in a dental laboratory.
  2. Composite veneers – layers of composite resin are applied directly to the tooth, masking any damaged enamel. It is then sculpted to the correct shape and size to look like natural teeth. Can be applied in just one visit.

What are dental veneers made from?

  • Porcelain – Porcelain veneers are made from a type of ceramic. This means that this method of teeth coating is not as susceptible to stains as composite veneers, and their overall appearance is also brighter and shinier.
  • Composite – Veneers are made from a tooth coloured resin (similar to that used for fillings) and are close to plastic in nature. As resin is porous, it is sensitive to stains. If you have composite veneers fitted it is advised that you regularly have them professionally polished and visit the hygienist.

The benefits of dental veneers

There are many benefits to dental veneers. One of the main advantages is the huge impact that transforming your smile can have on your confidence. We’re proud to say that our patients always leave our practice impressed with their brand-new smiles.

Other benefits to dental veneers include:

Restoring your smile by covering chips, cracks and discolouration Veneers look and feel natural Tailored to your existing smile A simple procedure Low maintenance – keep up with a good oral health routine at home and you’re good to go

How long does a dental veneer last?

Providing you take care of your dental veneers, they should last for many years. If well cared for, porcelain veneers can show a life span of 10-20 years compared to 3-5 years for composite veneers. Porcelain veneers have a cleaner finish and a longer life span.

After your treatment, you should keep up to date with regular check-ups so that our dentists can monitor the health of your veneers.

Aftercare of dental veneers treatment

Looking after your dental veneers is simple. You should take care of them as you would your natural teeth.
Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste. We would also recommend flossing and using fluoride mouthwash. If proper cleaning is neglected, you are still at risk of developing tooth decay.
To keep your dental veneers looking sparkling white, limit the amount of food and drinks with strong colours you consume. For example, coffee and red wine. Giving up smoking also can make a huge difference.
Please continue to visit our practice twice a year, or every six months, for regular check-ups and hygiene appointments. These appointments are vital and give our skilled dentists the opportunity to spot any causes for concern and address them before they develop into something more serious.
After your veneer treatment, you must avoid chewing anything too hard. Pen lids, ice and fingernails can break the veneers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best veneers?

When you visit our Northamptonshire practice, one of our dentists will take the time to discuss which dental veneer treatment option is right for your smile. Every type of veneer has different benefits and we will help you decide which is most suitable for you and your oral health.

Should I choose composite bonding or porcelain veneers?

Here at Priors Hall Dental, our experienced team will do their best to guide you towards the right treatment for your smile goals. This is a question we get asked often and it can depend on your exact needs. Both composite bonding and veneers are made to blend in with the colour of your surrounding teeth, providing a natural finish. Veneers are more stain-resistant. However, bonding can be shaped to fit your tooth, which could make it a better option for chipped or damaged teeth. 

Depending on what you’d like to achieve, a combination of both could be an option. Our friendly team will discuss this with you during your consultation and talk you through what would be the best treatment for you.

How many veneers do I need?

This can depend. If you have trauma to one singular tooth, you would only need a singular veneer. If there are multiple teeth that you’d like to cover, anything from 4-8 can be common.

Do veneers ruin your teeth?

If you take care of your oral health after your veneers have been placed, nothing will happen to your teeth. When veneers are placed with the care and precision that our dentists provide, your teeth will remain in excellent condition for years to come.

How long does it take for gums to heal after veneers?

Gum soreness can persist for 2-3 weeks after treatment. If something doesn’t feel right after having your veneers placed, it is always best to call our Northamptonshire practice so that we can investigate.
