Porcelain Veneers from Bow House Dental in Tring Hertfordshire: Fix Stained & Chipped Teeth

Having gaps between your teeth or misaligned teeth can lower your self-esteem and make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Traditionally, the only option for treating this type of complaint was the use of braces. Now, in some cases, minor imperfections to the alignment of teeth can be easily corrected using veneers, effectively disguising imperfections and creating an aesthetically pleasing smile.

Our veneers are made from extremely fine porcelain that is perfectly colour-matched to your natural teeth. Long-lasting and cared for in the same way as you care for your teeth normally, veneers are an excellent means of cosmetically perfecting your smile.

Whether you have damaged, stained, gapped or crooked teeth, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile we invite you to contact us to see whether simple veneers may help.

Are veneers right for me?

Where minor changes are required to improve the physical appearance of your teeth, modern veneers can be affixed to the front surface of your teeth, giving you a more radiant smile and protecting the teeth beneath.

At Bow House, we are proud to announce that we have CEREC technology available on site, which means that we are able to offer our patients the option of having veneers created and fitted during a single appointment!

In this case, once your dentist had assessed the suitability of veneers for you and prepared your teeth, our specialist technicians will craft your custom-made veneers using our CEREC machinery while you wait. Your dentist will then be able to fit your new, permanent veneers during the same visit, saving you time and avoiding the need for temporary veneers to be fitted.

Before & After Veneers

How does it work?

Having veneers fitted can be carried out under local anaesthetic – if you are at all anxious about this type of treatment then please talk to your dentist before your appointment. We endeavour to give all of our patients the best possible care, and all of our dentists are specially trained to give extra support and care to patients who are nervous. If necessary, your dentist may recommend moderate sedation to help you to relax during your treatment.

Veneers Frequently Asked Questions

It is a thin slice of porcelain bonded to the front surface of a tooth (almost like a false nail).

It is used to camouflage’s the underlying tooth. So If a tooth needs to be straightened or unsightly gaps need to be closed, then we use veneers.

This is the perfect solution for chipped, worn or discoloured teeth. It allows us to make changes to the size, shape,orientation or colour of existing teeth.

The amount of tooth lost is minimal and will be roughly the same thickness of the veneer to be fitted. The tooth needs to stay the same size so in effect we just have to create a rough surface to allow the veneer to bond with the tooth.

No, in the interim a temporary veneer is placed over the tooth until your veneers are finally fitted.

The veneer is fitted or bonded to the tooth with very strong cement.

Current clinical research suggests that crowns and veneers made using modern materials can last at least 10 – 20 years and may even last longer depending on diet, lifestyle and oral hygiene practices.

Veneer cost can vary hugely dependant on the type, material and technician used.  We only use the very best technicians and materials to make sure we get the very best result and longevity possible. We want our patients to walk out feeling amazing!

What happens to my teeth after veneers, and will I ever get cavities?

The integrity of veneered teeth is only marginally compromised, and the veneer is bonded to the existing teeth. There is no higher incidence of decay provided the veneers are properly cared for as previously mentioned with regular flossing and brushing with toothpaste. In general, it is good dental advice to keep your sugar consumption low and confined to meal times to prevent decay.

This is certainly a factor that will be discussed during your evaluation and smile design so that everything matches and blends well. Most patients usually whiten the lower teeth with whitening (bleaching) procedures to ensure a good match.

Porcelain veneers should never stain; however; if your teeth have a propensity to stain you should try to avoid or minimize the behaviours that lead to staining and look after them as recommended above with normal hygiene and maintenance procedures.
