Veneers are a popular option that many of our patients opt for here at Vitality. They are custom made to disguise chipped, stained or ridged front teeth by changing the colour, shape, size or length of the teeth.
You are in control of what how you would like the veneers to look, what colour you would like. It’s a perfect way to transform gappy smiles without the need for braces.
If you would like to discuss in more detail the process of veneers, why not book a free online exam appointment with the dentist who will assess and provide you with options. Alternatively, call/email us for a free consultation with the treatment coordinator.
How much do veneers cost?
Prices vary depending on which tooth the veneer is being placed and the material by which it is made. Please contact us on 0131 6291120 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
What are veneers made of?
They are custom made, wafer-thin, shells of porcelain or composite resin, that are bonded on the front of your tooth to change the colour, shape, size or length.
What is the difference between Porcelain Veneers or Composite Resin Veneers?
Porcelain veneers resist stains better than Composite Resin, and they have better light-reflecting properties that mimic natural teeth. Composite Resin is thinner meaning that less of the original tooth surface must be shaved away before the placement of the veneer.
How are they secured to my teeth?
Veneers are secured using high tech tooth coloured cement that comes in several shades, guaranteeing a match to each individual’s teeth.
Will my veneers ever need replacing?
As most things in life, they will last if they are cared for properly. This includes maintaining good oral hygiene by regular brushing, flossing and visits to the hygienist. Habits such as chewing pens and nail biting will also decrease the longevity of the veneers..
Can I eat and drink as normal?
Not immediately after the procedure but you will soon be able to return to eating and drinking as normal, although care must be taken when eating/biting into hard foods and object, e.g., pens.
