Dental Veneers York

Once thought of as an exclusive treatment of Hollywood stars, dental veneers have become an increasingly popular cosmetic dental procedure for transforming a smile in a short space of time.

A dental veneer is a thin shell of tooth-coloured material which covers the front surface of a tooth. Veneers can be crafted in range of different materials ranging from porcelain veneers to the latest synthetic materials (emax crowns) which can provide varying combinations of real aesthetics and durability, resulting in an awesome smile makeover results.

What Can Veneers Be Used For?

Veneers can be used for a number of different situations including:

  • Covering badly discoloured teeth
  • Giving twisted teeth a straighter appearance (instant orthodontics)
  • Improving the look of poorly developed teeth
  • Covering teeth that have fluorosis
  • Fixing chipped and damaged teeth

Veneers can be made from several different materials using varied techniques. This can influence both the cost and quality of the veneer and the cosmetic dental result. As there are several treatment options an assessment is required to determine the type of veneer most suitable for each situation. Below is a description of some types of veneers.

Laboratory Dental Veneers

We take the time to assess the condition of your existing teeth. We then plan a dental restoration design to optimise the aesthetics, selecting the best material for the cosmetic dental result. An impression of the prepared tooth is taken allowing the veneer to be made in the laboratory, after which, on the second visit the dental veneer is carefully bonded onto the tooth surface. We use exclusive cosmetic dental technicians who are highly skilled in handcrafting the veneers to suit your smile’s colour, contour and character perfectly, to create a truly natural look. This type of veneer can be expected to last many years if looked after properly, it is very durable and will look amazingly natural.

Direct Composite Resin Veneers

This type of veneer is composed of a composite material which is applied directly to the tooth. This can be done by the dentist whilst you are in the chair. Although you can achieve a rapid result, the long-term quality and finish of the material are not as good as the laboratory-crafted veneers described above.


This is a brand of prefabricated dental composite veneers. Using Componeers we can change your smile in one visit by placing these premade thin shells of composite straight onto your teeth. Once again the finish, colour and contouring of these veneers are not optimally customized. However, Componeers is an option that is both quicker and more affordable thus being a cost-effective way of rapidly transforming your smile.
