Five ways veneers could help to transform your smile


Veneers are no longer a cosmetic dental treatment exclusively for the rich and famous. They are a great way to transform your smile without the need for invasive surgery. If you have gaps in your smile, chipped, cracked or discoloured teeth, then veneers could be a great long lasting solution to improve your smile and self-confidence. Below are 5 ways that veneers could help to transform your smile.

1. Close up those unsightly gaps & straighten your tooth line

Having a gap in your smile can affect your confidence causing you to cover up your mouth in public and social situations. Made from porcelain, veneers are thin shells which are designed to fit over the front side of your teeth. They can be used to change the shape and size of your teeth and to cover any gaps to give you a whiter, straighter smile.

2. Give you a brighter, whiter smile

Discoloured teeth, particularly a front or more visible tooth can cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile. Dental veneers are a longer-lasting alternative to tooth whitening, enabling you to laugh and smile without feeling embarrassed to show your teeth.

3. Healthy and natural looking teeth

The thin layer of porcelain which makes up veneers imitates the natural translucency of tooth enamel, giving off a natural appearance. This gives your smile a natural and healthy look.

4. Stain resistant

Unlike natural teeth, veneers are resistant to staining from drinks such as coffee, tea, wine etc. This means it is easier to keep them clean, preserving your sparkling white smile.

5. A long lasting solution

Veneers last a lot longer than tooth whitening treatment. If they are cared for and looked after properly, quality porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years or longer.
