Types Of Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Made of exceptional hand crafted quality, hardened ceramic, these types of dental veneers really are the trusted solution for everyone. Porcelain veneers have been used for decades, the older forms were originally much thicker and often used as a form of teeth whitening. Nowadays, they still act as a form of teeth whitening for people whose stained teeth do not react well to actual teeth whitening procedures. The process involves placing an ultra thin layer of porcelain to your teeth to reinstate their natural, white look. The procedure often helps in giving strength to your teeth and can mirror natural tooth enamel. Due to fantastic advances in cosmetic dentistry, the shaping, sculpting and colour treatments available for porcelain have improved to the so they can be as natural or as artificial as you request.

Lasting between 10-15 years, porcelain is extremely strong, they only require the same maintenance as you would with your natural teeth. Veneers do not stain and remain the same colour throughout their life.

Porcelain veneers usually require some form of preparation of the natural tooth to allow for a precise fit and perfect appearance meaning that the process is irreversible. However, with their exceptional durability and perfect appearance, the team at Harley Street Smile Clinic believe that porcelain offers the best results every time.
