How Do Dental Veneers Work?

Are you really unhappy with the appearance of your teeth but not sure what you can do about it? You may have heard of veneers, but you aren’t really sure how they work?

Veneers are a cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance of your teeth. They are made from a thin layer of porcelain fitted over the front facing surface of the tooth. Think of it as false nails being applied to real nails.

At Eastside Dental Swansea, we provide dental veneers. They could be the solution if:

·         Your teeth are worn or chipped

·         Your teeth are discoloured

·         You have large gaps in your teeth

·         You have crooked or uneven teeth

Veneers are often used in pairs to provide a symmetrical appearance and can be made using either porcelain or composite resin. In cases where a large number of veneers are placed, a wax model can be produced to preview the finished result. Sometimes you may only need 4 to 6 veneers to dramatically improve your smile, so veneers may not be such a costly option as you first thought.

The process usually only requires two short, pain free appointments. We always try to ensure that your teeth are not filed or cut. Once fitted, if cared for correctly, your veneers should last for many years.


Prices start from £450 but you will need to book a consultation, so we can discuss your options. Speak to the team today on 01792 642733 to find out more
