Veneers

← Return to treatments

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth to improve the overall appearance of teeth. They are made of either thin plastic resin or porcelain and can be placed to:

  • correct poorly formed or mildly mal-positioned teeth
  • close gaps between teeth
  • mask internal stains
  • restore partially broken-down teeth

Tooth preparation is minimal and confined to the enamel structure. The veneer is bonded to the tooth structure with tooth-coloured resin cement. Several visits are necessary to complete treatment.

Patients should be aware that this is usually an irreversible process because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.

Before and Afters

Case 1

Composite bonding was used to fill the gaps which this patient disliked. This was done using a layered technique for a natural result in a single visit with no drilling of natural tooth tissue by Dr Kiki Norman.

Case 2

Composite bonding was done to make this patient’s teeth appear larger and more straight. This was done in a single visit with no drilling of the natural tooth by Dr Kiki Norman.

Case 3

Composite bonding was used by Dr Kiki Norman to close this patient’s gap. This was done using a layered technique for a natural appearance in one visit with no drilling of the natural tooth.

Case 4

Composite bonding was used to close this patient’s gap. This was done by Dr Kiki Norman using a layered technique for a natural appearance.


Veneers Before And After 1

Portrait Before And After Haymarket

Just had two veneers fitted for my front top teeth which were chipped, had been built up but then kept breaking. The procedure was clearly explained and simple as Andy was able to do the prep then create the veneers in an hour or so at the surgery, thanks to a very clever bit of kit, and then fit them that same morning.

I am delighted with the result - Andy is meticulous - and would highly recommend the practice for their friendliness, skill and professionalism.
