Dental Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed on the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They can be used to address a range of cosmetic concerns, such as discoloration, chipping, cracking, or gaps between teeth. Veneers are made from high-quality materials like porcelain or composite resin, which mimic the natural look and feel of your teeth.

The Versatility of Dental Veneers

While renowned for their cosmetic prowess, veneers offer a broader spectrum of benefits. They serve as a versatile remedy, capable of addressing an array of common dental concerns. These concerns may include:

  1. Discolouration: Veneers effectively mask discolouration caused by factors such as stains from food, beverages, or tobacco use. This makes them a popular choice for individuals seeking a brighter, stain-resistant smile.
  2. Chipping and Cracking: Teeth that have suffered minor chips or cracks due to accidents or wear and tear can be seamlessly restored with veneers, re-establishing both aesthetics and functionality.
  3. Gaps and Alignment Issues: Veneers are also adept at correcting minor gaps between teeth and minor alignment issues. While they are not a substitute for orthodontic treatments in cases of severe misalignment, they can provide a quick and aesthetically pleasing fix for minor irregularities.

When would I need a veneer?

Veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten your front teeth. A veneer can make a chipped tooth look whole again.

They can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers provide a very natural finish. If you are concerned about misshapen, chipped or discoloured teeth, veneers can offer a long- lasting cosmetic solution.

The colour of the porcelain veneer can be selected to match your existing teeth or to make them appear whiter. The porcelain finish also mimics the light-reflecting qualities of natural teeth, helping you achieve a brighter, natural -looking smile.

Porcelain veneers are also more stain resistant and durable than composite bonding, and if looked after properly, can last for many years.

Veneers offer a gentler approach to altering a tooth’s shape or colour than crowns, as only a small amount of enamel has to be removed to fit the veneer. Yet they offer similar strength and very natural looking results.

Dental veneers are a long-lasting cosmetic solution to imperfect teeth. They can match the colour of your existing teeth and look very natural.

How long do veneers typically last?

Porcelain veneers can last 10-15 years or more with proper care. Composite veneers have a shorter lifespan, typically around 5-7 years. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene can extend the longevity of your veneers.

What's the difference between porcelain and composite veneers?

Porcelain veneers are made from durable ceramic material, offering a natural appearance and stain resistance. Composite veneers are made from a resin material and are a more cost-effective option but may not last as long as porcelain veneers.

My fear of dentists is gone, thanks the team at Essential Dental Care. So caring, so considerate, so professional. I had a hygienist service and two fillings. I have never had such wonderful experience sitting in a dentist chair. I was recommend this place by a friend, and I am forever grateful. There is a group of us now, who all go here :) Thank you all and you sure have me as your regular customer for years to come.

My husband and I would not go anywhere else, Dr Paul is the most experienced dentist that we have had and explains everything to you. My husband is in the middle of getting implants and he was a bit apprehensive at first but Paul was very patient and explained everything that is going happen and reassured him. It is a long process but will be worth the wait. Also the staff could not be more helpful and very friendly too. Would recommend this practice to anyone.💓

由於家母牙齒出問題,規勸良久才肯就醫,幾經波折,在愛丁堡找到這家可以全程以廣東話溝通的牙科診所,診所職員 Carman了解後,認為情況緊急,特意安排了快期,隔天便能就診。牙醫 Paul 診症細心,並教導了日常的護理方法及開药,回家後一兩天病情已告好轉,值得推薦。

First thing to say is that Paul does very high quality work. He pays attention to detail, spots trouble before it happens, and is very quick to find an appointment time if you do have pain, and sorts it out effectively every time. Secondly, he is very gentle; he’ll tell you when he’s about to numb you up, but to be honest, that’s about the last you’re aware of it. He checks with you that you’re ok, and is careful to make sure your mouth isn’t open wide any longer than it needs to be. Thirdly, he and Michelle run a very effective and friendly practice; they made every effort to keep open as much as possible during lockdown whilst giving every confidence that they were doing all they could to keep their patients safe. And they still do. I can’t commend them highly enough nor thank them warmly enough for all their care and attention.

Cannot fault the team at Essential dental. They are always seem to run on time and put me at ease throughout. Dr Au just gets on with it. Would recommend to anyone.

I have had an extremely positive experience at Essential Dental Care. While a bit pricey (as with any private dentist), Dr Paul has always been very patient and happy to answer any questions I've had about my treatment. I also have to say that this is the first dental practice I asked about a partial denture who did not immediately try to upsell me to a dental implant. While I do need to eventually get the implant, it can be very costly and Dr Paul understood that I really just needed a cosmetic solution in the interim. Highly recommended.
