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.
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!

I’ve visited Dr.Ravi for a few treatments over the past few months. His service has been exceptional and has continually gone out of his way to accommodate me. I received fantastic results from the Enlighten teeth whitening service he offers with a perfect set of bridges and veneers to complete my smile. I would highly recommend both Dr.Ravi and his team. Thank you for everything.
I was referred to this dentist after having a lot of trouble with my tooth. I have received nothing but support and excellent service. I can be really nervous with the dentist generally, and all staff made me feel at ease and were patient with me; talking me through each step of the process.
I would recommend this practice to anyone, especially if you have more complex issues.
