Sutton Dental Veneers


Veneers are thin facings made of porcelain that are bonded onto the front surface of the tooth to alter colour, contour, position or a combination of these. As a result your smile can be rejuvenated, giving a more natural appearance. A veneer is very much like a false finger nail where it is bonded over the original tooth crown.

Porcelain has all the advantages of beauty and durability, remaining attractive over a long period of time. Porcelain veneers offer one of the most exciting techniques in modern dentistry.

Ten things you didn't know about veneers

  • Whiter fuller smiles help reverse the ageing process as teeth get darker and shorter as you get older
  • A veneer is a thin porcelain shell bonded on top of the tooth (from 0.5mm - 1mm thick) as thick as a baby’s fingernail.
  • Veneers require minimal preparation
  • There is no dark line above the tooth which you sometimes see with crowns
  • Veneers can last from 10-15 years, sometimes longer, if they do fail it is usually only one or two, which can easily be replaced with the same shade (colour)
  • You can decide how white or light you would like your teeth to be. They are resistant to stain and discoloration and unlike your natural teeth maintain their colour
  • Sometimes in selected cases you don’t have to prepare or recontour teeth at all and you can change a person’s smile by bonding veneers on their teeth. These veneers are called Lumineers (contact lens veneers) That means no injections
  • Generally it will take two visits, 7 - 10 days apart, during which time we fit temporary veneers, with a short follow up appointment to apply finishing touches like contouring and polishing
  • Although we try to create a ‘perfect smile' for every patient it still is completely different from patient to patent and it is natural for that specific person
  • Veneers can not only look natural but they feel like your own teeth
