Dental veneers

Cutsom-made dental veneers to achieve remarkable results… fast

One of the most satisfying aspects of our work at St Peter’s Lodge is helping people to feel more confident about themselves. Sometimes, this might involve a complex series of treatments, but on other occasions a relatively simple procedure, carried out with exceptional care and attention, is all that’s needed. Dental veneers are an excellent example of this.

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth to improve their overall appearance.  People who have irregular or discoloured front teeth tend to be particularly well suited to this treatment.

Dental veneers can be used to address a range of commonly-encountered problems. Made of either thin plastic resin or porcelain, they can in some ways be compared to false fingernails for the teeth!

Veneers can be used to:

  • Correct the appearance of poorly formed or mildly mal-positioned teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Mask internal stains
  • Restore partially broken-down teeth
  • Make chipped teeth look intact again

How your veneers will be placed

First of all, the tooth is prepared to allow space for the veneer to be bonded onto its front surface. The bonding process is carried out with a tooth-coloured resin cement.

You may need to return to us more than once to complete treatment.

Patients should be aware that fitting veneers is usually an irreversible process because it’s necessary to remove tooth tissue to accommodate the veneer.

Making sure your teeth look as natural as possible

Our philosophy is that cosmetic dentistry should always look and feel natural. When preparing your dental veneers, we’ll take great care to select the precise shade of porcelain to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth, or to lighten front teeth, making sure that the veneer sits naturally alongside the rest of your teeth.
