A makeover for a tooth

Veneers are often compared to dental version of a false fingernail, although much more permanent. Veneers can alter the appearance of a tooth, its colour, shape and, to a limited extend, its position. Beneficial from single tooth restoration to a full smile makeover and smile lift procedures.

Reasons for treatment

  • Restore front teeth with old discoloured fillings
  • Improve the shape, size, position and appearance of a tooth
  • Correct a dark discoloured root-filled tooth
  • Veneers are much more conservative of tooth enamel than crowns

Procedure

  • A very small amount of surface enamel may need to be removed
  • The material is applied by a dentist in the surgery
  • The material is bonded (attached) to a tooth to the correct colour, shape, size and position

Fees

£250–£350*

Porcelain Veneer

£1150–£1350*

*Cost varies according to complexity and number of teeth treated at the same time.
