Veneers have long been used to improve the appearance of teeth and continue to be popular today.

Shape, shade, length and size are all properties that can be altered with veneers, and in using porcelain (ceramic) to create them, we can achieve an outstanding cosmetic outcome that resembles a real tooth.

Veneers: the process

Once we’ve performed an examination of your teeth and after your teeth have been carefully prepared, a digital scan is taken to allow the dental lab to get to work creating your custom veneers. The veneers we create are unique to each patient. By closely observing the individualities that make your teeth your own, we can create a veneer that no one need know is not your own tooth.

A small amount of tooth structure is removed, to ensure your veneer is the correct thickness once it’s placed over your tooth. At a second appointment, your veneer is adhered firmly in place, and we’ll make any necessary minor adjustments at this time.


Are veneers stain resistant?

Veneers are highly resistant to staining, but that doesn’t mean you should go on a binge, eating and drinking a tooth-staining diet! Whilst your veneer won’t stain as easily as a real tooth, you should endeavour to eat a healthy diet that won’t cause tooth erosion and decay.

Is it painful?

As the tooth receiving the veneer is numbed with a local anaesthetic, you won’t feel anything during the procedure. It’s normal to experience some mild discomfort as the anaesthetic wears off in the hours after your appointment. This can be controlled with OTC painkillers. If you’re worried about any lingering pain, please do get in touch with us.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers that have been placed and crafted by experienced professionals (such as our dentists here at Crown Bank Dental Implant & Cosmetic Centre), can last in excess of 10 years. You will need to afford them good care, which means brushing and flossing consistently twice a day and coming in for check-ups and hygiene visits.

Can I eat normally with veneers?

Porcelain veneers are strong, so you’ll be able to eat a variety of foods ranging from soft to tough. However, you should avoid biting on foreign objects like ice and pencils, as these are common culprits that can damage veneers.

Is veneers treatment reversible?

As a small amount of tooth structure is removed, getting a veneer isn’t a reversible process. If you’re looking for a less invasive cosmetic dental treatment, you may wish to consider teeth whitening and composite bonding.
