What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers in Essex are cosmetic tooth ‘covers’, made of tooth-coloured porcelain, that are applied to the outer surface of the tooth. Veneers at Simply Teeth are custom-made to fit over existing teeth to completely cover the teeth and change their appearance significantly.

Veneers can also be made a dental resin composite material. Our dentists will generally recommend porcelain because it is more stain resistant, more durable and has a more natural appearance. Additionally, porcelain veneers can last up to ten years.

Our patients choose porcelain veneers in Essex for several reasons. Tooth discoloration is generally a predominant factor. Yellow or stained teeth can not only be unhealthy, but also be visually unappealing to many people.

A lot of our patients also choose veneers in Essex to create a more uniform shape to their teeth, enhancing the cosmetic appearance of the teeth.

Let’s face it, when we look at magazines or watch TV, rarely do we see models or actors with imperfect teeth. It’s likely that most of these smiles are the work of an excellent dentist. That’s not to say that some people aren’t simply born with a beautiful smile, but rather to say that sometimes to achieve such a perfect smile, porcelain veneers may be a helpful option.

That sounds expensive!

Porcelain veneers in Essex at Simply Teeth should be considered an investment. Cost is based on several factors including the experience of our dentists, the quality of the materials we use and the number of veneers you want.

To help spread this cost we are happy to offer our patients finance options to help spread the cost over a manageable period. With prices starting at just £600, your veneers in Essex could be more achievable than ever before.

Are there any disadvantages?

While the advantages of porcelain veneers are obvious (beautiful perfect teeth that will last many years), there are several disadvantages that should be considered as well.

Veneers can’t be ‘undone’. Once the process is started, there’s no going back as your teeth have to have a thin layer of enamel removed when the veneer is fitted. Some patients may also experience sensitivity to hot and cold due to the removal of some of the tooth enamel.
