Helping you achieve a flawless new smile

If you’re self-conscious about your smile due to imperfections such as gaps, chips, discolouration or misshapen teeth, dental veneers from Red Hill Dental Practice is one way you can easily correct these concerns and be confident about your beautiful smile.


Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.

A porcelain veneer is a thin, custom-made shell finely crafted and bonded to the front of a tooth. Receiving porcelain veneers will require two appointments; the first is to prepare the teeth receiving the veneers and the second to place them.

During preparation, a very small amount of tooth enamel is removed so when your veneers are placed, your teeth look completely natural. Once prepared a detailed impression mould is made and sent to a technician in a dental laboratory who creates your veneers.

At your second appointment your veneers are checked for fit and comfort and any required adjustments are made before they are permanently bonded to your teeth.

When placed, your veneers look like your natural surrounding teeth. Although extremely fine, porcelain veneers are quite strong, durable and stain resistant.

Composite veneers are made using a special white resin material that is coloured to the shade of your natural tooth enamel.

This type of dental veneer is usually used to correct small tooth imperfections like small chips or cracks in the teeth or as a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers. Composite veneers have the advantage and convenience of being completed in a single appointment visit.

The composite material is placed in layers and hardened by a special UV light. It is then sculpted to the perfect shape to blend seamlessly with your surrounding natural teeth.

With correct care and regular check-up appointments with Red Hill Dental Practice team, your porcelain and composite veneers will enable you to enjoy a beautiful smile for many years.
