Veneers are slivers of porcelain that can be bonded to your teeth using dental cement, to restore your chipped and broken teeth. They will hide any damage your teeth have suffered and provide you with a natural looking set of perfectly restored teeth, as well as a boost to your smile confidence. 

You won’t need to feel embarrassed about flashing your less than perfect teeth around Derby now. Your smile will be fixed! The pieces of porcelain used to painstakingly restore your teeth will be custom-made and colour-matched to fit your individual teeth flawlessly. Once they’ve been fitted, they should last for up to 15 years, giving you 15 years of being able to smile with pride at your appearance.

Whether your teeth are chipped, stained, overlapping or have undesirable gaps, our experienced cosmetic dental surgeons, Ravi Talati and Andrew Cope will be able to provide you with an effective aesthetic solution to your imperfect smile by fitting porcelain veneers at our Derby practice.

What does the process involve?

In the first instance you’ll need to book a consultation with us in order to discuss what it is you like to alter about your teeth. Once we have explained the procedure, as well as the prices and dental finance plans available to you, we will need to shape the tooth in need of treatment to prepare it ahead of it receiving the veneer.

Local anaesthetic will be applied beforehand, so you’ll be comfortable throughout.  An impression of your teeth will then be taken in order for us to be able to make the veneer parts we need. For a good fit, the measurements must be very precise.

Once we have the parts of the veneer in our possession back at our Derby practice, we will make an appointment with you to fix the porcelain parts onto your teeth. Your tooth surface will be etched to make it rough, before dental cement is applied and the veneers are bonded to your teeth. Any excess cement will then be trimmed and your teeth will be polished. When you next look at yourself in the mirror, you’ll see an improved, more attractive smile beaming back at you.
