What are ceramic veneers?

Veneers are a thin shell of material bonded on the front surfaces of teeth to improve their appearance. 

Veneers can be made of ceramic or resin. They are tooth- coloured and their shapes and contours can be customised to improve the appearance of the natural teeth that they cover.  

Veneers can be placed over 1 or 2 appointments and provide a relatively quick solution to improve an unaesthetic smile. However, each case must be assessed thoroughly to ensure that veneers are the most appropriate treatment modality.

Covid-19 precautions in place: Dental treatment is available for patients who present no Covid-19 risk factors and for whom delaying treatment will lead to negative outcomes. Patients who have tested positive to Covid-19, have been a close contact of a positive case or have been to any listed exposure sites are advised to delay dental treatment until clear of all risks. Patients are kindly asked to check-in using the QR code at reception and to make sure that they do not present any symptoms indicative of possible Covid-19 infection. Patients will need to hand-sanitise and use a disinfecting mouthrinse prior to treatment being provided.
