Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that allows you to perfect your smile. They are like “false fingernails” but for teeth and are expertly made in your preferred shade, perfectly rounded and will give you a great smile to be proud of.

Why would I want to have veneers?

If you’re not 100% happy with the way your teeth look, then dental veneers could be an ideal treatment for you. Veneers fall under the cosmetic dentistry umbrella. This treatment is very much geared to improving the way your teeth and smile look, really giving you the sparkle that you are after. At Ascent Dental Care, we offer premium composite and porcelain veneers.

What’s the difference between composite & porcelain veneers?

One of the main differences is that composite veneers can be done in one visit, whereas porcelain veneers must be sent to the dental laboratory to be made. Porcelain veneers are made of a stronger substance than composite and can last longer as a result. Porcelain veneers are often more expensive than their composite counterparts and are also more durable. Porcelain veneers, however, are considered a permanent treatment as the dentist needs to remove a minute amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth to ensure the veneer adheres correctly.

How long can veneers last for?

Porcelain veneers have a longer life than their composite counterparts. However, how long they both will last depends on your lifestyle as well. If you maintain a healthy oral hygiene regime of brushing, flossing and mouth wash, you can increase the lifetime of your veneers. If you can avoid sugary drinks and don’t grind your teeth, then your veneers will also last longer. You can still get cavities even if you have veneers!

How much are veneers?

We offer a wide range of different veneers and materials and prices are dependent on each individual case. One of the most popular veneers we offer is Emax veneers, which give a very natural and beautiful result. To help break up the overall cost of treatment, we offer 0% finance and low-interest finance plans. These help to break down the barrier to private cosmetic treatments.
