Veneers from Billericay’s leading dentist

Veneers are really thin, custom-made attachments made from tooth-coloured materials which fit onto the front of your existing teeth. They can dramatically improve both your smile, your appearance, and provide a real boost to your confidence.

Veneers FAQ

Porcelain veneers versus composite veneers – what are the differences?

Porcelain veneers are made of porcelain and composite veneers are made of a composite resin. Porcelain veneers are incredibly durable once they’re bonded to your teeth, lasting up to 15 years with a good oral hygiene regime. Veneer treatment is normally spread across three appointments. Preparation, Fit & Review. They look realistic and have a natural tooth-like appearance. You don't need to remove too much of the tooth to prepare for a veneer. If they break, they cannot be repaired. In addition, porcelain veneers are made off site and they take two weeks to make and be sent back to Billericay Dental Care. Composite veneers are made from composite resin. Your veneers are actually sculpted onto your teeth (meaning they don’t have to be made elsewhere). The application of composite veneers can be done on the one trip and if they break or are stained, they can be repaired. Some people think that, although they look great, composite veneers aren’t as attractive as porcelain veneers. Others find it really hard to tell them apart. Composite veneers attract stains much more than porcelain.

Does it hurt?

The preparation shouldn't cause too much discomfort as a local anaesthetic will be administered, which should prevent sensitivity. Want to know more about veneers?
