About Porcelain Dental Veneers
There are many benefits to choosing porcelain dental veneers as part of your cosmetic treatment plan. They can cover discolorations or stains and fill gaps between front teeth. Porcelain dental veneers can also cover teeth that are worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped. Each set is unique based on the requirements of each patient, with the ability to correct teeth that are deeply stained, discoloured, yellow, chipped, broken or slightly rotated.
Porcelain veneers may be for you if you are looking to smile more confidently, naturally and flawlessly.
Why Choose Our Veneer Specialists In London?
When choosing a porcelain veneers dentist, it’s important to pick one who has the right experience and training in cosmetic dentistry techniques. It is equally important to select a dentist who will take the time to understand you and your aesthetic dental goals and who possesses the skill and artistry to deliver your exact vision. Settling for anything less is exactly how some people wind up with dental veneers that look unnatural, with disproportionate smiles that just don’t properly fit their faces. Simplicity provides a path to elegance, which is why we will never do any unnecessary work on your smile.
When it comes to porcelain dental veneers it is often what you don’t see that matters most. We believe that there is nothing more attractive than a natural-looking smile that truly feels like it could not belong to anyone else but you. When your smile is seamlessly fitted to you, people start to notice that “something” about you has changed and that there is something captivating about your overall confidence.
How do we accomplish this?
With careful attention to detail, our highly-skilled cosmetic dentists will take every opportunity to preserve the natural characteristics that make your smile yours. Our porcelain dental veneers will enhance those elements.
This requires an in-depth understanding of the face, the mouth, the teeth and how these all interconnect to define who you are. In some instances, it may only be necessary to place one or two veneers instead of covering the entire mouth with porcelain dental veneers. It is our belief that simplicity provides a path to elegance, and that is why we will never do any unnecessary work on your smile.
When upgrading your smile with veneers, they need to complement your overall facial features so that they look natural and fit organically.
For example, if you have a small face, you should not choose long, square-shaped veneers that will not fit your overall proportions. With an angular or square-shaped face, softer edges on your teeth is preferable. The length of your teeth can make a big difference: longer teeth can benefit if your face is fuller while wider teeth help if your face is thinner.

- Are Veneers for me? Do I need Veneers?
If you have any of the following, porcelain dental veneers could be for you:
•Teeth that are too small
•Gaps between your teeth
•Stained, discoloured or yellow teeth
•An asymmetrical smile
- What are Veneers made of?
Dental veneers can be made of porcelain or composite.
Note that there are also different types of composites (varying in quality and appearance) as well as different types of porcelain (varying in strength, gloss and translucency).
Therefore all composite bondings are not the same and not all porcelain veneers are the same. To learn more about composite bonding, please click here.
- How long do Dental Veneers last? How do I maintain my Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers have the potential of lastling a lifetime with an average of 10-15 years. They are highly resistant to staining and chipping.
Veneers must be maintained by flossing and brushing daily, making sure to have professional teeth cleanings at least twice a year.
Nail biting or pencil chewing can damage veneers just like they damage natural teeth. In fact, it takes as much force to break a porcelain veneer as it does a natural tooth.
- Can Veneers be an alternative to Braces? Do I still need to get Invisalign if I get Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure. They do not correct bite problems, nor do they correct the position of your teeth. Veneers simply sit on top of your teeth and can help change the shape and the colour of your teeth.
If you have misaligned teeth or problems like jaw pain, you may need to consider aligning your teeth first. Orthodontic treatments like Invisalign or Clear braces are preferably done before other cosmetic treatments.
If you choose to straighten your teeth, followed by teeth whitening, and you are still not happy with the appearance of some of your teeth; at this point, you can opt for veneers.
- Do I need to get my teeth whitened if I get Veneers?
Most patients do need some professional whitening. Staining can be caused by coffee, tea, red wine, certain mouthwashes, taking the antibiotic tetracycline, smoking, or just ageing.
However it is not mandatory to do so before having veneers if you are happy with the colour of your teeth as they are.
But, if a tooth root has died, it will be dark and may show through the porcelain dental veneer. If it was treated, the enamel may no longer adequately mask the yellow dentin underneath.
Natural teeth should be whitened to the colour chosen for veneers, then let the whitening settle. The shade can then be finalised before fabrication by the master ceramist. Veneers can maintain their colour for as long as 10 years, starting with choosing the right material.
Over-the-counter whiteners do not affect the colour of your veneers, but they can help natural teeth maintain the same shade.

I highly recommend dr German for anyone looking for a truly caring and qualified dentist.
