What is a veneer?
A veneer is a new front surface for a tooth, custom made from porcelain or ceramic. Ceramic veneers can be used in a variety of situations. For example, to align crowded or crooked teeth, close gaps or lighten the tooth colour.
Veneers are a fantastic solution for anyone who has noticeable damage to their teeth. Sometimes teeth can be worn down from acids in food and drink. This causes the teeth to look thin and therefore appear dark in colour. Other times teeth can even look transparent. If you have similar problems then veneers may be the solution you have been waiting for.
What are the main advantages of having veneers?
Veneers can make your teeth look natural and healthy. The strength of veneers rivals that of natural teeth and their appearance is visibly advantageous to your own smile. Dental veneers can improve the position, shape and colour of your teeth. Here, at the Berkeley Clinic, we can provide you with a wide range of veneer colour shades. So, no matter how many veneers you would like to get we can assure you that you will get the best colour match available.
Preconceptions about veneers
Many people are put off by veneers as it is widely understood you have to shave down a large portion of your natural teeth in order to have the new tooth attached. The Berkeley Clinic offer innovative solutions to combat this common deterrent. The veneers are expertly moulded by the in house technician so that they can be attached to your natural teeth. This method means “you don’t have to damage any of the underlying teeth structure”.
How long does it usually take to get a veneer?
It can take up to two weeks and require at least 2 visits to have the veneers fitted. Why does it take so long? Firstly dentists take your dental impressions, match your teeth shade, prepare the tooth and then get them sent to the laboratory. Once the veneer has been made by the dental technician it is then sent back to the dentist and fitted at your next appointment. Isn’t that frustrating? Would you wait for two weeks if you knew that the Berkeley Clinic team can make and fit your veneers in just one visit? We didn’t think. So why is our clinical team different and how we can help you?

After that, your dentist will fit your veneers and will make sure you are happy with the result. Now all you need to do is keep smiling!
Are there any alternatives to porcelain and ceramic veneers?
The alternative to a veneer is either a crown or a composite filling. Dental crowns help to strengthen your teeth in a case of root canal treatment, if it is broken, decayed or have been weakened by a large filling. Composite fillings wear out over time and can stain.
If you are looking for a long term solution that would strengthen your teeth and make them look amazing, veneers are the best option.
