What are Veneers ?

Porcelain veneers have long been used to create the ultimate smile makeover. With this treatment, it's possible to transform crooked, stained, damaged or badly worn teeth into a brand new, straight, white smile as seen on many of the Hollywood greats.

Veneers are wafer-thin laminates or shells of tooth-coloured material, which can be either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material. They are cemented to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance.

Many dentists use the analogy that dental veneers are for your teeth, what false fingernails are for your hands.

Porcelain veneers will typically last between 5-10 years. To make your veneers last longer, follow a good oral hygiene program and visit your dentist and hygienst for check-ups on a regular basis.

Here's what a happy patient has to say about veneers

Bothwell Dental Care, I would like to say a massive THANK YOU for giving me my new smile! The veneers you did for me are an absolute credit to you. Not only do my teeth look incredible, but they have never been healthier.  For anyone considering cosmetic dentistry, I could not recommend this practice enough. From start to finish, Raymond was a complete perfectionist - he listened to what I wanted, and over exceeded my expectations tenfold.  I just can’t say enough good things about this practice - the people, and the work they do - so happy :D   Patient W
