FAQs

Are veneers right for me?

If you have healthy gums and teeth, the chances are veneers will be a quick and simple solution for you. Patients with tooth decay, gum disease and root canal infections will need to have these issues treated prior to considering veneers, and it may be that your dentist recommends alternative treatments in these cases.

How are veneers attached?

The porcelain veneer procedure usually requires two or more sessions with your dentist. Firstly the tooth is prepped: this involves removing a thin layer of enamel, and taking a dental impression, which will be used to fabricate your veneers – a process that usually takes a couple of weeks. When your veneers are ready, they will be bonded and cured using a special light-sensitive resin.

Do veneers hurt?

Placement of veneers should be a pain-free procedure, in which local anaesthetic is normally used – though this is not always necessary and depends on the nature of the treatment.

How long do veneers last?

With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years.

Veneers are the ideal solution for teeth with minor imperfections...

If you don’t need to replace missing teeth or undergo orthodontics, veneers could be perfect for you. The treatment conceals a wide variety of dental dilemmas, from chips, gaps and cracks to minor misalignment and discoloration. They can also be used in tandem with other cosmetic treatments, such as dental bridges. At Elmet Dental Care, our experienced dental team will be able to talk you through the options, including the cost of veneers and what they can do for your smile.
