Porcelain Veneers

Science mimiks Nature

A stunning smile is no longer only for genetically blessed individuals, with porcelain veneers anyone* can now have a smile to be proud of. Veneers are thin porcelain “shells” that are customised to fit your teeth perfectly, changing their shape and color to meet your unique preferences. Veneers are a long-lasting solution that can fix a variety of dental issues, including chips, stains, and gaps. With veneers, you can boost your confidence achieving the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of.

* This treatment is not suitable for all patients, and we, as health professionals, have an ethical obligation to let you know whether you are a suitable candidate. Prior to receiving this treatment, a comprehensive examination must be performed to check eligibility and assess the health of your teeth. Veneers require maintenance and possible replacement at some point, and in some cases, the procedure is irreversible. The picture on the right is illustrative only, and this is not a Proud Smile patient.

We do take it personal

Bespoke Veneers

At Proud Smile we are proud of individuality. We understand that there’s no one smile like another, and we all have different perceptions of what beauty should look like. That is why, ALL of our cosmetic work is done in-house and artistically designed by our own dentists, based on your requirements and our recommendations. The result is a beautiful bespoke smile and one that is specific to your face and personality.

The Future is now

3D Digital Technology has revolutionised Dentistry forever. Goopy moulds, stone models and manual porcelain layering, have been replaced with digital impressions, 3D printed models and milled ceramics, using robotic technology. Porcelain veneers can now be produced in-house with near 100% precision and in just hours instead of weeks.

Prepare to be Impressed

Think you know how veneers are created? Think again. At Proud Smile we have modernised our veneer process from the ground up. We haven’t simply adopted digital technology, we reinvented it and made it ours, we transformed the way we capture, design and produce our veneers. You really will be impressed with our workflow and how easy it will feel to you, then you’ll impress others with your stunning smile.

END OF GOOPY MOULDS

Hate the gagging feel of taking rubber impressions? Fear no more! Your teeth can now be scanned using a camera that creates a 3D image of your teeth. No mess, no gagging, no repeats. Images can then be 3D printed or used to create a myriad of restorations and appliances.

SMILE DESIGN

Once your teeth are scanned, it’s time to design your veneers. Wax and manual brushes are replaced with state-of-the-art design software. But don’t worry, the principles of teeth design are still very human. At Proud Smile all our designs are created in-house, down to the smallest detail by our dentists, so you receive a personalised smile made exclusively for you.

 

THE MAKE OF VENEERS

It’s milling time! Based on your personalised 3D design, the Veneers are cut out of a porcelain block using robotic technology. They’re then polished and coated with a glaze material before being fired at a temperature of 700c. Veneers then come out strong and glossy ready to be cemented to create your perfect individual smile.

How strong really are porcelain veneers?

Even though veneers can be as thin as 0.3mm (Ultra Thin Veneers), once bonded to teeth enamel they become extremely strong. We only use premium ceramics with strengths ranging from 250mpa up to 850Mpa, depending on indication and budget. In other words, you’d need at least a 250 pound force inflicted on them before they’d break. Veneers are made to survive the harsh mouth environment, which has large variances of temperature, acidity, bacterial attachment and the tough forces of the bite. It’s important that your bite is properly assessed, as well as your diet, habits and lifestyle, so we can increase the longevity of these restorations.

Virtual Trial Smile

Seeing is believing

We understand some patients can be fearful or sceptical about the kind of smile they’re about to receive, so it’s no surprise that when it comes to such an important feature like your smile, seeing is believing. At Proud Smile we cater for you too, and as a matter of fact, through our excellence in design and our leading digital technology we have taken Trial Smiles to a whole new level. 

We offer our patients a Virtual Smile Design service before we even start treatment. By using a simple photo, we can show you with incredible realism, how your teeth could look. If you’re still not convinced, we can, in some cases, create a 3D printed mock up and actually place this trial design on your teeth, like a “cover”, so you can see and try it for yourself in your own mouth. 

We also offer a final trial at the cementation of your permanent veneers. This means that if for any reason you not quite ready to wear your new smile permanently and prefer to try your final porcelain veneers for a few days or even a week, we can simply cement them temporarily. Yes, that’s right, exclusive to Proud Smile, you can test your real porcelain veneers in full accuracy of shape and colour, not just any plastic temporary veneers like our competition.

It’s time to be Proud of yourself.

You too can have YOUR smile back, whether you have a gap between your teeth, discoloured fillings, teeth that are too short or too long, chipped, broken or very yellow teeth, chances are we have a solution for you.
