Veneers consist of a thin layer of porcelain that has been made to fit over the front surface of the tooth in the same way that a false fingernail would fit over a nail.
Veneers are an effective treatment that can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give you the right colour to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten your front teeth.Veneers can make a chipped tooth look whole again and it covers the whole of the front of the tooth, with there being a thicker section that will replace the broken part.
Using veneers to close small gaps when braces aren’t suitable is also effective.Porcelain veneers can make teeth look natural and healthy. The fact that the veneers are very thin and are held in place by a special strong adhesive means that there is very little preparation of the tooth needed.
Here at our dental surgery in Glasgow, we offer porcelain veneers as a treatment and have done so for several years now. We’ve gained an enviable reputation in the time that we’ve been carrying out this treatment for patients, this is because we pay close attention to detail, use the best materials and equipment and ultimately, go above and beyond to ensure that our patients receive an excellent treatment from us.
The treatment time for veneers isn’t long although it takes at least two visits to our Glasgow based practice. The first visit will be to prepare the tooth and match the shade and the second will be to fit it. Before bonding the veneer in place, one of our dentists will show you the veneer on your tooth to make sure that you are happy with it.
The cost of porcelain veneers can vary depending on the number of veneers that you need and one of our dentists will discuss the cost during the consultation stage. At the consultation stage you’ll also be able to ask us any questions that you may have about the treatment.
