Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain shaped to match your smile perfectly and placed over the front of your teeth. They are then fixed on with cement and should last for at least 10-15 years and often much longer.
The porcelain veneers treatment is simple, requiring you to make only three trips to our London dental surgery. Porcelain veneers could be perfect for you if you’re looking to correct any small chips, cracks, or other imperfections.
Porcelain veneers from Twoth will last you for at least 10-15 years, providing they are looked after properly. Some will even find that their porcelain veneers last a lifetime. This longevity makes the cost of porcelain veneers more than worth paying.
You should practice good dental hygiene to ensure your porcelain veneers stay in the best possible shape. This means cleaning your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once daily.
No, your teeth will not be ruined by porcelain veneers. In fact, the opposite is true, as your teeth will look better than ever. However, we might need to shape your existing teeth before attaching the porcelain veneers. This won’t matter, as they won’t be visible behind your fitted veneers.
The porcelain used for dental veneers is highly resistant to staining, meaning it’s very rare for someone to find their porcelain veneers have been stained. This means that your porcelain veneers should stay the same shade of white for their entire lifetime.
This resistance to staining is one of the main factors that differentiate porcelain veneers from composite veneers, composite bonding, and teeth whitening, all of which can stain over time.
The cost of porcelain veneers will fluctuate from person to person, depending on the overall amount of dental work required. However, on average, porcelain veneers cost £750 per tooth, which is excellent value considering the massive change they’ll make to your smile.
If you cannot afford porcelain veneers from Twoth, don’t worry. We offer a highly competitive financing option to our patients, which allows you to spread the cost of porcelain veneers over several months.
No they are not. We will sometimes need to slightly reshape the tooth before attaching the veneer, but this will be done under local anesthetic, meaning you’ll feel nothing. While not painful, a new veneer can feel unusual initially, but you’ll become accustomed to it after a few days.
Porcelain veneers usually last from 10-15 years but can be a permanent addition to your mouth, providing you look after them correctly. This means you should brush daily, as well as floss. You should also make sure you attend regular appointments with your dentist, where they’ll evaluate the veneer, as well as the rest of your mouth.
Porcelain veneers are suitable for most people with minor cracks, blemishes, or other imperfections on their teeth. However, the mouth needs to be healthy before the procedure is carried out. You will also need sufficient tooth enamel, meaning that the procedure isn’t suitable for those with missing or seriously damaged teeth.
