A quick, cosmetic treatment to enhance your smile

Porcelain veneers in Hull

The perfect smiles on the pages of celebrity magazines are often achieved using veneers –and where this treatment was once unattainable by mere mortals, nowadays veneers are much more mainstream and accessible. 543 Dental brings a wealth of veneers experience to Hull, creating the illusion of perfectly straight, white smiles in record time.

Like false fingernails for your teeth

Ideal for those who want to make relatively minor cosmetic improvements to their smile, veneers are often considered the go-to treatment for anyone who doesn’t require extensive dental work. Created from eggshell-thin layers of porcelain, which are permanently bonded over your existing teeth, veneers can cover a surprisingly large variety of aesthetic problems – hiding chips and gaps, smoothing irregularities, correcting misalignment, and whitening.

A fast and effective smile makeover

The procedure for creating and applying porcelain veneers usually only requires two or three sessions with your dentist. Firstly, the tooth is prepped: this involves removing a thin layer of enamel, under a local anaesthetic if required, and taking a dental impression, which will be used to fabricate your veneers. When your veneers are ready, usually around two weeks later, they will be bonded and cured using a special light-sensitive resin.


Are veneers suitable for me?

If you have healthy gums and teeth, the chances are veneers will be a quick and simple solution for you. Patients with tooth decay, gum disease and root canal infections will need to have these issues treated prior to considering veneers, and your dentist may recommend alternative treatments.

Do veneers hurt?

Not usually. Sometimes we might use a local anaesthetic, but it’s not always necessary and applying veneers generally involves minimal discomfort. Your dentist will discuss your treatment in depth prior to proceeding, so you will know exactly what to expect.

Do veneers stain?

Veneers are less prone to staining than natural teeth, because porcelain is not as porous – but you will need to follow a good oral hygiene routine to maintain your beautiful white smile.
