Cosmetic Crowns/Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight alterations or changes to the tooth size, shape, position or colour.


When are veneers used?
Porcelain veneers are a excellent in the following situations:
  • Gapped or Crooked teeth
  • Heavily Stained or discoloured teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
Crooked teeth and other aesthetic dental issues are normally corrected using orthodontics (braces), but your dentist may recommend veneers to cover stained enamel and minor spacing problems.

Are veneers painful to have?
No. In most cases, placing veneers is such a conservative process. We do not need to alter your natural tooth much at all (sometimes not at all), and often does not require any anaesthetic.

How long to veneers last?
If taken care of with good oral hygiene and regular dental check ups and hygienist visits, porcelain veneers should last between 10-15 years.

COVID-19 Guidance


PRACTICE UPDATE To all our lovely patients. Thank you so much for all your patience and understanding since we were told to close our practice. It has been a difficult time for all, and we hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. We have been available during our normal opening hours for emergency advice and triaging throughout. We were pleased to hear the recent Government announcement that dental practices can reopen from the 8th of June. We have been working very hard to get as close to this date as possible. As we look ahead SAFETY will be the most important element. We will be using the first week to train our staff and update our policies and protocols, as well as continuously sourcing the necessary personal protective equipment. We hope we can open on the 15th of June for emergency assessments for patients who are in Pain, and provide a limited range of treatments.

As the restrictions start to ease we plan to prioritise our patients that had appointments canceled or problems during the lockdown period. It will be a slow transition to routine care and full range of services. You will notice your patient journey will be somewhat different to what you have been used to. We will be using our website, social media and emails to communicate these changes. Please lookout for these updates! Please do not come to the practice without a pre booked appointment.

We very much look forward to seeing you all soon, and getting back to the ‘new norm’
