    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do replacement veneers look natural?

    The replacement veneers will look much more realistic, being very natural looking in terms of colour, much thinner, and designed to the shape and size that suits you most, giving you a much fresher looking smile and possibly taking a few years off in the process! Even if you have had veneers placed recently that you are unhappy with then at The Harley Street Smile Clinic we can replace them with more aesthetically pleasing ones so that you are completely satisfied with your smile.

    How would I know if I require replacement veneers?

    There are a number of reasons why you would need to invest in replacement veneers, including:

    • Chipped or cracked dental veneers
    • Decay on underlying teeth, which would require removal of veneers
    • Original veneers were fitted improperly by another dentist
    • Poor dental hygiene can cause gum decay which will create gaps between your veneers

    Although veneers are notably durable and can last up to 15 years, after this time they can become slightly fragile. This may result in your veneers coming loose and might well cause damages and stains to the porcelain shield, which cannot be fixed but can be replaced.

    Am I the right candidate for replacement veneers?

    If you have a cracked or damaged veneer, as a result of an injury or from chewing hard objects, this will expose your underlying teeth and may cause additional damage due to the lack of protection. As there is no way to repair the damage, you will need a replacement veneer – thus ensuring that your teeth are protected and that your veneers are in perfect condition.

    You may also require replacement veneers if any of your natural teeth are damaged or decayed. In order to treat the tooth, the veneer must be removed for full access. After treatment, a new veneer can be placed on to the tooth to match the rest of your teeth.

    How much are replacement veneers?

    The cost of veneers is dependent on the number of teeth you wish to cover up. Here at Harley Street Smile Clinic, we currently charge £795 per tooth, which is an affordable price in comparison with other London-based clinics.

    Are replacement veneers long lasting?

    We expect our veneers to last around 15 years, but if you take care in looking after your teeth and gums really well they may last even longer than anticipated. Replacement veneers need the same care as a natural tooth to ensure that they last and are kept presentable. Old veneers very often look very thick or bulky as you can see from some of the cases shown, and so the replacement veneers will look amazing in comparison.

    How do you prolong the lifespan of your veneers?

    To get the most out of your veneers, it is vital that you take care of them. In order to prolong your veneers, you should consider the following:

    • Avoid tobacco and cut down on any food or drink that will stain your veneers in order to keep them sparkling white
    • Visit the dentist for regular check-ups and teeth cleaning procedures
    • Maintain hygiene by flossing and brushing with non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft bristle brush at least twice a day
    • Protect your veneers by wearing a mouthguard whilst playing sports
    • A dental guard for anyone who grinds their teeth

    All of these steps will ensure that you receive good value for your money, and your veneers may even last up to twenty years if you are extra careful.
