Veneers in Benfleet
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit over your natural teeth. They are commonly used to hide imperfections, whiten teeth, hide discolouration and create a dream smile. Achieve a dazzling smile in just two visits with veneers from Benfleet Dental Centre.
The veneer treatment journey
A small amount of the natural tooth is removed to make space for the veneer. Your dentist will take impressions of the teeth and send these to a dental lab. In the lab, technicians craft your veneer and colour match to the desired shade.
Your dentist will bond the veneer to your natural teeth using a strong adhesive. This minimally invasive method of placing veneers means that you won't need a temporary veneer between appointments. Very little material is removed when preparing your teeth.
Quality restorations for natural results
Porcelain veneers are the superior choice for dental restorations. Porcelain is strong yet beautiful, offering a natural-looking restoration that functions just like your natural teeth.
Porcelain does not stain and can be matched to the colour of your surrounding teeth with ease. Veneers offer the ideal solution for teeth that cannot be whitened with traditional whitening methods.

What can veneers fix?
Veneers can correct multiple flaws. It is possible to change a range of cosmetic flaws such as gaps, discolouration, staining, chipped or fractured teeth with veneers.
How long does the veneer restoration take?
Veneers can be completed and placed in two visits, typically spaced two weeks apart. This offers a considerable advantage above other methods to straighten the teeth such as orthodontics.
How long do veneers last?
Veneers are a permanent restoration, so if they are chipped or damaged, the veneer will need to be replaced. It is difficult to say how long veneers will last because every patient is different. With the right care, veneers could last for 10 years.
Are veneers easy to care for?
Yes, you can simply brush your veneers as you would your natural teeth. While veneers cannot decay like a natural tooth, you will still need to protect the surrounding gums. We will provide complete aftercare instructions to help you care for your veneers.
