Makeover your smile with bespoke veneers

Cover minor flaws

Many of the Hollywood smiles you see on the red carpet and on the pages of magazines are achieved using veneers –and although veneers were once unavailable outside Hollywood and Harley Street, today veneers are much more accessible. Created in a lab from thin, shell-like layers of porcelain, veneers are bonded onto your teeth to hide a multitude of imperfections – from cracks and chips to gaps and discolouration. Clyde Munro brings a wealth of aesthetic restorative experience to Scotland, using the precise placement of veneers to create the straight, white smile of your dreams.

How it works

The procedure for placing porcelain veneers usually requires two or more sessions with your dentist. Firstly, the tooth is prepared: this involves removing a thin layer of enamel, under a local anaesthetic if required, and taking a dental impression, which will be used to fabricate your veneers – a process that usually takes a couple of weeks. When your veneers are ready, they will be bonded and cured using a special light-sensitive resin.

Are veneers right for me?

If you have healthy gums and teeth, the chances are veneers will be a quick and simple solution for you. Patients with tooth decay, gum disease and root canal infections will need to have these issues treated prior to considering veneers, and it may be that your dentist recommends alternative treatments in these cases.

How do veneers work?

Because veneers sit over the top of your teeth, the dentist will need to file away a layer of enamel proportionate to the thickness of the veneers. This is usually carried out under a local anaesthetic. When your bespoke veneers are ready, the dentist will bond them in place using a special curing light, and finish by fine-tuning their look and shape manually.

Do veneers hurt?

No. Sometimes we might use a local anaesthetic, but it’s not always necessary and applying veneers generally involves minimal discomfort. Your Clyde Munro dentist will discuss your treatment in depth so you know exactly what to expect.

Do veneers stain?

Veneers are less prone to staining than natural teeth, because porcelain is not as porous – but you will need to follow a good oral hygiene routine to maintain your beautiful white smile.

How long do veneers last?

With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years.
