Dental veneers at a glance

Dental veneers are tailor-made coverings made of composite or E.max ceramic that fit over the front surface of your teeth in order to improve their shape and appearance.

These covers are stain-resistant and are bonded to the surface of your tooth. Veneers are especially helpful in improving your smile if you have teeth that are chipped, stained or misshapen.

The purpose of veneers is generally cosmetic, but you may have them fitted as part of an overall dental makeover.

Everyone at Brookside are friendly and helpful.

Types of veneers

Composite veneers
Also known as ‘direct’ veneers; these coatings are applied to the teeth in a single dental visit. They usually last from five to seven years, and then need to be replaced.

E.max ceramic veneers
Also known as ‘indirect veneers’; these coatings are custom-made to fit your teeth, so they require two dental visits for the procedure: One to prepare your teeth and take a custom mould, and a second to fit the veneers following manufacture in a dental laboratory. E.max veneers cost more than composite, but when looked after correctly, they last for at least 10 to 15 years – and sometimes even longer.

E.max veneers are more stain-resistant and natural-looking than composite veneers. However, composite veneers are thinner, so less tooth surface needs to be removed before they are applied. Your dentist can help you determine which veneer best meets your needs.

At Brookside Dental we use the latest materials and advanced skills allowing us to reduce the amount of tooth reduction needed to make space for the veneer, sometimes not even requiring any tooth preparation at all!
