Straightening teeth with veneers

Veneers disguise your natural teeth, so they’re ideal if your teeth are damaged, stained or misshapen. If your teeth are slightly crooked, veneers can also help to align your smile.

Veneers offer almost instant results, and we can redesign your smile to be the perfect size, shape and colour.

Our veneers are made from super-thin porcelain, so they look incredibly natural with the strength and transparency of your own teeth.

To fit your veneers, we’ll need to remove some of your tooth’s surface. If your teeth are crooked this can increase the amount of enamel we need to remove. Otherwise, your veneers could look bulky.

Dental enamel can’t be restored, so we always want to remove as little as possible. Veneers don’t last forever, and they will need replacing from time to time.

What are composite veneers?

If you’re not ready for the commitment of veneers, a popular alternative is composite veneers, also known as tooth bonding. Like porcelain veneers, composite veneers can reshape your teeth for the perfect smile. However, they don’t damage your teeth and they’re completely reversible.

Using a tooth-coloured composite, our skilled clinicians will build up your natural teeth to disguise chips, gaps and irregular edges. By creating a more symmetrical smile we can make your teeth appear straighter and more uniform.

Composite veneers won’t damage your enamel and they can be removed at any time. Some patients try them out before committing to veneers, while others combine them with orthodontic treatment for a fantastic result.

Composite bonding will wear down over time, so you will need repeat treatments to maintain your smile.

Braces vs veneers

If you’re choosing between braces and veneers, we can discuss the pros and cons of both options with you at your free consultation.

Braces have the benefit of offering long-lasting results. If you follow your aftercare advice and wear your retainers, you can expect your teeth to stay straight indefinitely.

Orthodontic treatment is also kind to your teeth and won’t cause any irreversible damage. We can transform even the most crowded teeth using fixed or removable appliances. Invisalign is a discreet way to align teeth using clear, removable aligners.

If you’re not happy with the shape or colour of your teeth, we can combine braces with other cosmetic treatments for a more dramatic makeover.

Our brace packages include home teeth whitening and cosmetic contouring as standard. Other complementary treatments include bonding and Enlighten whitening, which guarantees a B1 shade (the lightest natural Vita shade).

If you have any questions about braces or veneers, don’t hesitate to contact us.
