Porcelain veneers in Liverpool are a cosmetic dental treatment that can correct the appearance of chipped, worn, or misshapen teeth. They have the ability to totally transform the look of your teeth. Veneers in Liverpool are thin wraps of porcelain that cover your teeth. They are strong, durable and have a natural appearance. To fit veneers, you’ll need to have a thin layer of your tooth enamel removed. This means there’s no turning back. Once you’ve opted for veneers, you’ll need to stick with them for the rest of your life. The good thing is, they’ll usually last you around 10 years, in some cases you can double that time, in others, less.
Fitting your porcelain veneers in Liverpool
Often anaesthetic is not needed as the treatment only touches the outer layer of your teeth. First, we’ll clean your tooth and colour-match your veneer to the other teeth in your mouth. Next, we’ll remove a thin layer of your tooth’s surface, apply a bonding glue, and fit your veneer on top. We’ll cure the veneer for around a minute with a special light. This is to set the bonding glue. Lastly, we’ll polish your tooth.
How to care for your new veneers
Brush and floss as normal. That’s twice per day. Make sure your oral care routine is up to scratch and that you’re using a good toothpaste.
Minimising colour mis-matches

Once your veneers have been fitted, consider reducing your intake of foods or drinks that could stain your other teeth. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant; they won’t pick up stains as easily as your natural teeth. If your natural teeth look stained and your veneers are still bright white, it won’t look natural.
