Enhance your smile with porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin yet durable laminates that are custom-made to cover imperfections such as stains and misalignments on your natural teeth. Our Purley dentists use this minimally invasive procedure to enhance the appearance of your teeth, resulting in a natural-looking smile that you’ll love.

Benefits of dental veneers:

Close small gaps or misalignment in teeth
Improve texture and shape of teeth
Long-lasting, durable, and chip-resistant
Professionally made to fit your teeth

What to know about veneers at Foxley Lane Dental

Making an informed decision about whether veneers are the right solution for you is important, and our skilled dentists are happy to answer any further questions you may have.

At Foxley Lane Dental, you can opt for a single veneer to cover a broken or damaged tooth, a few veneers for minor imperfections, or a full set of veneers for a complete smile transformation. Our professional technicians will customise your veneers to achieve the best possible shape and shade for your unique smile.

The dental veneers process

Overall, the process for dental veneers typically takes two to three visits to our Purley practice over a period of several weeks.

1

Consultation

Your dentist will evaluate your teeth and discuss your goals for treatment to determine if veneers are the right solution for you.

2

Preparation

In order to prepare your teeth for veneers, a thin layer of enamel may need to be removed from the surface of your teeth. This creates room for the veneers to fit comfortably and naturally over your teeth.

3

Impressions

Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth to create custom veneers that are tailored to your unique smile.

4

Temporary veneers

While your permanent veneers are being crafted, your dentist may place temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth and provide an idea of what your final smile will look like.

5

Teeth bonding

Once your permanent veneers are ready, your dentist will carefully bond them to the surface of your teeth using a special adhesive.

6

Follow-up

Your dentist will schedule a follow-up appointment to check the fit and appearance of your new veneers and make any necessary adjustments

Dental veneers: your questions answered

  • What are dental veneers?

    Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from porcelain or composite resin that are placed on the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They’re designed to cover up imperfections such as stains, chips, or gaps, and to enhance the overall look of your smile.

  • How long do dental veneers last?

    Dental veneers can last anywhere from 5-15 years, depending on how well you take care of them. Proper oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing, can help prolong the life of your veneers. Additionally, avoiding hard or crunchy foods and wearing a mouthguard during contact sports can also help prevent damage to your veneers.

  • Are dental veneers permanent?

    The process of placing veneers typically involves removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth, so they are considered a permanent cosmetic dental procedure. However, the veneers themselves can be replaced or removed if necessary.

  • How are dental veneers different from dental crowns?

    Dental veneers and dental crowns are both cosmetic dental procedures that are used to improve the appearance of your teeth. However, dental crowns cover the entire tooth, whereas veneers only cover the front surface of the tooth. Additionally, the preparation required for dental crowns is more extensive than veneers, because more of the tooth needs to be removed to fit the crown.

  • Does getting dental veneers hurt?

    The process of getting dental veneers generally doesn't cause any pain, as a local anesthetic is used to numb the area being treated. However, some patients may experience minor sensitivity or discomfort following the procedure, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

  • How do I care for my dental veneers?

    Caring for dental veneers is similar to caring for your natural teeth. This includes regular brushing and flossing, avoiding hard or crunchy foods, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings. It’s also important to avoid habits such as nail-biting, chewing on pens or pencils, and using your teeth to open packaging, as these can all cause damage to your veneers.
