Veneers are shell-like pieces of material that are placed over the top of the original teeth; they help to make people’s smiles look more attractive. Most veneers are made of porcelain, but they may also be made of ceramic or composite materials.

They are also a great way to whiten teeth. Find out more.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Dentists can use veneers to transform even the most unattractive looking smile; the tooth-coloured pieces of material are placed over the existing teeth to create a natural, straight, healthy-looking smile. Having a great looking smile can help to boost confidence and enable people to get out there and do the things they’ve always wanted to do.

Are veneers expensive?

Veneers are a costly dental treatment but they can really make a difference to the way you look and feel about yourself. Typically, porcelain veneers will cost in the region of £300 each; composite veneers are cheaper but they don’t last as long so they may work out more expensive in the long-run.

How long do veneers last?

Porcelain veneers should last around 10 years if they are looked after properly; this involves regularly brushing and rinsing the teeth and visiting the dentist regularly. Composite veneers usually last around 3 years.
