Are you looking for an excellent cosmetic option for crooked, chipped, stained or discoloured teeth? Dental veneers can restore or improve your smile with excellent colour, shape and size, to create a flawless, perfect smile line.
A dental veneer is a thin, hardwearing layer of ceramic which is bonded to the surfaces of your front teeth. Porcelain dental veneers can be constructed by our specialist dental technician or with our single-visit CEREC technology. Porcelain is the ideal material for dental veneers as it’s strong, durable and beautiful, with the natural translucency of tooth enamel to better reflect light for a flawless and natural-looking result.
To prepare your teeth for your new dental veneers, we begin by lightly sanding them to remove a tiny amount of their surface material, ensuring your comfort by providing you with local anaesthetic.
In the next stage, we digitally scan your newly prepared teeth, using this information to create a virtual model of your mouth and teeth in our advanced CAD/CAM machine. Our single-visit CEREC technology is a great time saver for you, allowing us to create and fit your new porcelain dental veneers without the need for a temporary tooth restoration, while you wait for your final veneers to be created off-site.
The computer-controlled CEREC machine will mill your new veneers out of solid porcelain, precisely crafting them for a perfect fit. The Apple Dental team will then place them on your prepared teeth, checking to ensure both you and your dentist are completely happy. At this stage we can trim the veneers and adjust their colour for the ideal end result.
Made from high grade porcelain to precisely match our requested shape and colour specifications, your veneer will last for many years to come, restoring your confidence and self-esteem, and improving your quality of life.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?
If you’d like to improve the appearance of a gappy, uneven, or heavily stained smile, porcelain dental veneers from Apple Dental could be an ideal solution. Veneers not only give you a more natural looking, straighter smile, their preparation doesn’t involve much of your natural tooth being removed. The end result is brighter, more attractive smile you won’t be able to resist showing off!
How strong are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an extremely durable, strong restorative option. With care, they can last for up to a decade when professionally bonded to your teeth by the Apple Dental team.
How can I take care of my new porcelain veneers?
You should avoid doing things that can damage your natural tooth enamel, including chewing your fingernails or on a pen, and avoid biting down directly on hard foods, which is a sure way to damage your new dental veneers.
Always wear a custom-fitted mouthguard when playing contact sport, to protect your veneers from sports injury. And naturally, take care to protect both your veneers and your teeth with thorough at-home oral hygiene, including brushing twice a day and flossing every day.
How are porcelain veneers applied?
The thin, tooth-shaped shells are securely bonded to your teeth with dental cement, to give your new porcelain veneers outstanding strength. To ensure your new veneers don’t protrude from the rest of your smile, we may remove a very thin layer of tooth enamel before placement.
Are my new porcelain veneers susceptible to staining?
No. Because dental veneers are highly resistant to stains, you will be able to consume red wine, coffee or tea without worrying about damaging the look of your brilliant new smile.
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
When properly cared for, your dental veneers should last you for between 7 and 20 years. It’s important that you take care of your underlying natural teeth and the surrounding gums, which are still susceptible to gum disease. Be sure to maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine at home, and attend regular checkups with Apple Dental.
