Veneers are amongst our patients' favourite procedures, and it is easy to see why.

Before and after veneers cosmetic dentistry treatment.

They can immediately change the appearance of the teeth and thus enrich the smile, contributing to greater confidence and self-esteem.

Veneers can be made in two ways, either with ceramic materials [porcelain] or with resin materials [composite] which are commonly used to restore teeth with dental decay. Each of these options has its advantages and disadvantages.

Veneers made of porcelain usually have greater aesthetics, maintain their colour for a longer period of time and have greater hardness, however, their cost is higher, and if they break they are more complex to repair.

Composite veneers have the advantage that they are cheaper and if they fracture it is easy to repair them. But their disadvantages are that the aesthetics are slightly lessened and they must be replaced more frequently compared to porcelain veneers.

At Burford Dental we undertake both types of procedures with the advantage that we are not only dedicated to aesthetics but also have extensive experience in function and occlusion. What do we mean by that?

The material with which the veneers are made is important, however, more important than the material is the assessment of the occlusion. Depending on any dental irregularities that are present, teeth may have to be trimmed down or adjusted in position for veneer adhesion and to maximise the life of the restorations.

As we have extensive experience in orthodontics, we can advise you if your case is ideal for veneers, or if a preceding orthodontic phase would be recommended, so that not only do your veneers last a longer period of time, but also wear on your teeth and veneers is minimised and your teeth are maintained not only with great appearance but also functional and long lasting!

Here at Burford Dental, we would complete your veneers and give you that drop dead smile!
