shutterstock_29659054A veneer is a thin layer of material made to cover the front surface of a tooth improving the color, shape and size of the tooth. Veneers are custom made, most successfully, from porcelain. They are the equivalent to a false nail for a tooth.

Traditionally veneers were made over at least 2 appointments. At the first appointment the tooth was prepared, an impression was taken and a temporary tooth was made. The impression was sent to a laboratory where over the course of a couple weeks the veneer was made. It was then sent back to the dentist who fitted the veneer to the patients tooth.

We are delighted that we are able to provide crowns, bridges, veneers or implant retained crowns in one trip to our practice. We can do this because of our on-site dental laboratory and because of our investment in the latest CAD-CAM technology. We have the newest Sirona omnicam intraoral scanner and at the time of writing are using the latest 4.4 software, we continually upgrade our software and technology to ensure our patients receive the most up to date treatment possible. In addition to the convenience of completing the treatment in one visit our intraoral scanner means that our patients don’t have to have impressions taken, they don’t have to wear temporary crowns and they don’t need to have multiple anesthetics administered.
