Many people are familar with Dental Veneers from watching their favourite hollywood actors showcasing thier Pearly Whites or from watching some of the many TV Makeover programs.
Often used when a complete smile makeover is required and as you have probably seen the results can be amazing!
Veneers are typically used if teeth are chipped, worn, discoloured or crooked, veneers are designed and manufactured to transform your teeth creating the ideal appearance and an amazing smile.
Porcelain veneers may be just what you have been looking for. They are used to cover a wide variety of aesthetic imperfections, as well as strengthening the treated tooth.
A veneer is a very thin sliver of porcelain bonded directly to the surface of a tooth. They are commonly used to alter the size, shape, and alignment of teeth. If all visible teeth are being treated, they can be used to change the colour as well. If your teeth are naturally dark, or discoloured by factors such as disease or medication, teeth whitening may not work well.
When veneers are only being placed on select teeth, they will be coloured to match your existing teeth precisely for a flawless smile.
Nearly anyone with essentially healthy tooth structure is an excellent candidate for porcelain veneers. Although they are thin, they are also strong, much like the laminate on countertops. However, the veneer is only as strong as the bond.
A weak tooth or one with old, large fillings may not have a solid enough surface for a strong bond. If the underlying tooth has significant damage or decay, or it is likely to fail, a beautiful full dental crown may be recommended.
Minimal tooth preparation is needed to place porcelain veneers, because they are so thin. A tiny bit of enamel may need to be removed, to keep the tooth surface in precision alignment but because the procedure is so gentle and conservative, many patients don’t want anaesthetic.
Veneers are a wafer-thin overlay which improves the appearance of your teeth. A bit like cling film. Dependent on your needs, porcelain and composite being the most popular.
4 Possible Reasons Why You Should…
First, both composite and porcelain veneers have their merits. Porcelain gives you the most natural look as it has a colour similar to natural teeth. Composite veneers can be placed in just one appointment and require less preparation on your tooth surface, thus saving you time.
Furthermore, as with any treatment here we will always look at what the best options are for your smile so you can decide what it is you want and to give you the very best result.
Porcelain veneers typically last between five and ten years, while composite veneers tend to have a shorter life span.
To make your veneers last longer you should treat them as your teeth need to be treated.
Also, ensure that you keep regular appointments to see us to keep your mouth as healthy as can be, try and stick to a good diet and avoid too many acidic foods and foods that can stain your teeth.
As with any treatment here at Bank View Smile Studios the first step is to assess your smile to ensure that veneers are the best treatment for you.
That’s why we offer a Smile Audit for all new patients so that we can assess your smile and see if you are suitable for dental veneers. You can look at all options that are available to you and discover how to get the smile that you’ve always dreamed of!

I first joined BVSS in 2021, Before joining this brilliant dentist I was extremely nervous of any dental appointments, I hadn’t visited the dentist in well over 5 years.
I had such a bad experience at my previous dentist that I believed it would be the same anywhere but that genuinely wasn’t the case here at all, I couldn’t recommend BVSS and Dr Khalid more.
I have had a complete smile make over, I’ve never smiled so much in my whole life. In the past I would constantly cover my mouth every time I laughed or spoke due to how bad my teeth looked, They were badly stained, I needed several root canals and a tooth extraction.
Whilst at BVSS Dr Khalid worked his magic and I’ve now got a beautiful smile, I can’t help but show off my teeth whenever I can, I’ve had composite bonding on my top front teeth and my bottom, Khalid not only straightened the top but also created an illusion on my bottom teeth which made them look straight, as my bottom teeth are over crowded this caused them to become crooked but now with this illusion they look straight.
Typically if I was told I needed to have a root canal or even a tooth extraction I would be absolutely petrified however with Khalid and the brilliant dental nurses I am always at ease and there is no pain whatsoever, I could honestly fall asleep through treatment.
Khalid is the best of the best, I couldn’t recommend him or his team more, I’m constantly getting compliments about my beautiful white teeth and I always recommend people come to BVSS, You won’t be disappointed!
