We love big smiles, but we understand that it can be hard to flash your pearly whites if your teeth have gaps, are chipped or are worn down. When people aren’t feeling confident about their teeth, they tend to hide them which can make a person appear unapproachable, older or even angry!
Our highly experienced dentists offer Veneers to correct cosmetic dental issues such as chipped, worn, cracked and discoloured teeth. Veneers can give you a smile that you’re happy with. For us, it’s not just about cosmetics of beautiful teeth, but the priceless confidence that a great smile can give to your everyday life.
Would you benefit from Veneers?
Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of a smile. It’s most commonly used on the front teeth, and is helpful for dental problems like:
- Chipped or cracked teeth

- Teeth with eroded enamel

How long does a veneer replacement take?
A veneer replacement is generally performed over two appointments. The first is to prepare your teeth and to obtain all the information we need to match your veneers as naturally as possible to your teeth. You’ll receive temporary veneers until your permanent ones are complete. The second visit will remove your temporary veneers and bond your permanent veneers to your teeth. Our gentle and highly experienced dentists in Blackburn will ensure that they fit naturally and comfortably. After they are placed, your veneers are ready to show off immediately!
What exactly is a dental veneer?
Veneers are a thin shell of porcelain or resin composite that is bonded to the front of the tooth. Dental veneers can be likened to how acrylic nails are bonded to people’s nails at the nail salon to change the shape and colour of the nail. Veneers are used to change the shape or colour of the tooth, close gaps between teeth, cover worn or chipped teeth and rebuild enamel lost through acid wear. Veneers can be the quickest and easiest way to give you a perfect smile.
What is the difference between a dental crown and a dental veneer?
Crowns and Veneers are made from similar materials, but they are generally used for differing purposes. Veneers are thin sheets or porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of the tooth, making them useful for changing the shape and colour of front teeth. They are often used for cosmetic damages or imperfections to teeth.
Crowns on the other hand cover the whole tooth in a 360 degree fashion. Dental crowns can be used for front or back teeth, and are commonly chosen to repair teeth that have been severely broken or damaged.
With our highly personalised services, your dentist can advise you on whether veneers or crowns will be best suited to your individual needs.
