Would you like to improve the look of a damaged or discoloured tooth with minimal work and preparation? Perhaps you would like to straighten or align a slightly crooked tooth (or teeth) without the use of orthodontics? If so, a dental veneer is an ideal way to quickly, safely and comfortably cover any imperfect teeth allowing you to gain a natural looking attractive smile with the minimum of fuss.

What is a dental veneer?

A dental veneer is a thin layer of manufactured material which is placed over the front surface of a tooth. Veneers can be used to dramatically change the appearance (including the size, shape, colour and position) of many different teeth. They are usually placed on the front upper and lower teeth. The process is quick and comfortable and requires very little preparation time. We make use of only the best quality, natural-looking materials including porcelain and composite to ensure a truly beautiful result you will love.

Who could benefit from dental veneers?

Dental veneers are often considered by individuals who seek cosmetic improvements to their teeth. Common candidates for dental veneers include:

  1. Stained or Discoloured Teeth: Individuals with teeth that are resistant to traditional whitening methods or are discoloured due to factors like medications or fluorosis may opt for veneers to achieve a brighter, whiter smile.
  2. Chipped or Broken Teeth: People with chipped or broken teeth, often resulting from accidents or trauma, may choose veneers to restore the appearance and functionality of their damaged teeth.
  3. Uneven or Irregularly Shaped Teeth: Individuals with teeth that are naturally uneven, misshapen, or have irregular contours may benefit from veneers to create a more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing smile.
  4. Gaps Between Teeth: Veneers can be used to close small gaps or spaces between teeth, providing a cosmetic solution for those who prefer not to undergo orthodontic treatment.
  5. Worn Down Teeth: Teeth that have been worn down due to factors like bruxism (teeth grinding) can be restored and protected with veneers, improving both appearance and function.
  6. Mild Misalignment: While not a substitute for orthodontic treatment in cases of significant misalignment, veneers can be considered for individuals with minor alignment issues, providing a more cosmetically pleasing appearance.
  7. Desire for Cosmetic Enhancements: People who are generally dissatisfied with the appearance of their smiles and wish to enhance the overall aesthetics of their teeth often turn to veneers as a versatile and effective cosmetic dentistry option.

How do veneers work?

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit over the existing teeth. Modern veneers require very little preparation of the underlying tooth structure, so they are excellent for protecting and maintaining natural teeth. Veneers can be used to make teeth look straighter and whiter. They can also conceal gaps, chips, cracks, discolouration, uneven edges and thinning enamel.

If you don’t feel 100% confident with your smile, veneers offer a fast and effective way to achieve a stunning transformation. This makes it the ideal treatment choice before a special occasion such as your wedding day or graduation. If you want to feel more confident with your smile, veneers offer a quick and simple solution.

How long do veneers last?

With proper care, veneers can last for many years. However, as they are a cosmetic treatment, they may need to be replaced or adjusted over time. We will always aim to achieve long-lasting results, but we will also provide you with advice on how to take care of your veneers to help them last for as long as possible.

You’ll need to follow our aftercare advice to help protect your veneers from damage. Since they are made from porcelain, they will be at risk of chipping or cracking. Eating certain foods can increase the risk of this happening. Habits like chewing ice can also damage your porcelain veneer.

Getting veneers in Glasgow at Devonshire Dental Care

Each patient is different and the length of time required to fit your veneer will depend on your personal circumstances. Normally, we would fit a veneer in around two appointments although this can take longer if you are having more than one fitted.

First visit:

At your initial visit, your tooth (or teeth) will be prepared. We will need to remove a tiny amount of enamel in order to create space for the veneer to fit on the top of the tooth. This will ensure it sits flush with the existing teeth blending in and feeling just the same as the others. When your tooth is ready, we will take a digital scan of it so that your veneer can be custom-made for you. It will be carefully colour matched to your other teeth.

Second visit:

Your brand new veneer will be checked for fit. Once you are happy, it will be attached to the front surface of your teeth with a dental adhesive. It may be necessary for you to attend a follow up visit around a week afterwards to check you are happy and that it has indeed stuck securely.

Looking after your veneers

As it is made from a strong and durable material your veneer should last for many years. It’s important to take care of it- be aware of foods and other habits that could potentially damage it. A veneer can be easily chipped or broken by eating very hard foods or chewing fingernails and pens. If it starts to feel loose at any time please contact us straight away.

Smile design veneers – Glasgow

These are bespoke veneers which are made with minimal preparation to the teeth. We use our 3D scanner to take a scan of the teeth which is emailed to the dental laboratory. The ceramist then designs the veneers and makes a mould of them which the dentist uses to try on your teeth in acrylic form. You can wear these temporaries for a period before returning to discuss any changes you would like made. An additional benefit of the template is that it will be used to show the dentist where minimal amounts of enamel need to be removed to get the optimal result. This significantly reduces the drilling required and so is less destructive than the traditional method of veneer preparation. After you are happy we proceed to having the final porcelain veneers made which are then fitted permanently by the dentist.

Devonshire Dental Care provides the best dental care that I have ever experienced. I recently developed a bad toothache and after having no sleep overnight, I called them as soon as they opened and not only did Nicola and her team fit me in but also relieved my pain. Nicola also went above and beyond in my opinion when she called me later in the day to see if I was doing ok and to let me know I should come back in if I had any problems. Thank you Nicola and the amazing team at Devonshire Dental, you are outstanding and I cannot recommend you more.

I went to Devonshire on a friend’s recommendation after receiving a treatment plan from another dentist indicating I need 4 fillings. Nicola made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in. Her professionalism is complemented by her friendly demeanour. Nicola advised I only needed 1 filling rather than 4. The filling was done perfectly and looks completely natural. My hygiene appointment was quick and thorough. The staff are really friendly and professional. Having trust in your dentist is so important and seeing Nicola has made me feel glad I came to the practice. I’ll be a returning patient and will recommend to all friends and colleagues.

I can’t say enough good things about Devonshire dental care and Mr Alan Rennie. Everyone there has a very relaxed and friendly approach, Alan talks you through your treatment options thoroughly and, after seeing him for 10 years I can confirm his work is to a very high stardard. I have been terrified of the dentist my whole life but going to Alan Rennie has really helped calm me down to the point going is much easier.
