Traditionally the treatment of choice amongst celebrities but now accessible to many, porcelain veneers are extremely thin sheets of porcelain which transform the size, shape and shade of the teeth. Any cracks, staining, large gaps or breakages are quickly transformed and the smile is beautiful once again.
Porcelain Veneers Are The Treatment Of Choice For Full Smile Transformations
Veneers are often used when patients are seeking a total smile transformation. They are made from high quality ceramic to guarantee a solid construction and a highly natural final shade and finish. You can choose the precise shade of veneer that you would like, including shades to match surrounding teeth, or brighter, whiter shades for a complete set of veneers used to totally transform your entire smile.
As veneers are used to replace a thin layer of enamel at the front of the tooth, they are ideal for correcting chips, staining and other flaws. Rather than waiting for teeth straightening treatments or multiple corrective procedures, veneers can also be used provide an instant transformation that gives patients the Hollywood smile they always dreamed of.

Usually we can fit veneers in as few as two appointments. During the first appointment we prepare the teeth and take a digital image for the accurate and precise creation of your veneers in our laboratory. In some instances we may place temporary veneers to wear until your final appointment. When you come and see us again we will re-prepare the teeth and place your permanent veneers using high-grade dental adhesive. Just a few adjustments to ensure your new smile is perfect, and your treatment is complete.
Dental crowns are used when fillings, bonding, inlays or onlays are not enough to restore a tooth. A crown works by replacing the entire tooth surface from the gum line up, so the tooth root remains intact and healthy, protected by the new crown on top. We are pleased to offer the most modern material for dental crowns known as ceramic. This has replaced porcelain as the material of choice for tooth restorations and allows us to complete repairs without the unsightly black line associated with traditional metal-bonded porcelain crowns.
Key Crown Treatment Benefits:
- Latest crown materials and application make a resulting darkened gum line a thing of the past
- Extremely durable
- Helps protect the remaining tooth
- Latest materials are suitable for use in the back of the mouth
- Treatment can be completed quickly
When you have crown treatment the tooth is prepared by taking the complete outside section away, leaving a healthy inner. A mould is then taken of what is left and a crown is made to fit on top of that prepared part of the tooth, whilst also fitting naturally with the opposite teeth, helping you maintain a healthy bite. We can usually complete your crown treatment in as little as two visits.
