Benhill Dental Practice



Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth. Stained, chipped or misaligned teeth can make you feel very self-conscious about smiling or laughing in public.

veneersAt Benhill Dental Practice in Sutton, we believe that everybody deserves a smile to be proud of. Our skilled team of cosmetic dentists offer a number of options to help improve both the appearance of your smile and your self-confidence. For many patients, veneers are the perfect option for smile makeover treatment. As well as looking natural and beautiful, treatment with veneers is fast and minimally-invasive, ensuring that your teeth remain strong and healthy.

Veneers can be made of porcelain or composite material (the same material we use to create white fillings). They are thin shells that are placed over the front surfaces of your teeth to cover permanent stains and discolouration, small chips and cracks, small gaps and minor alignment problems. Many people like to think of veneers as false fingernails for teeth.

Depending on your individual needs, your dentist will adjust the shape of your veneers to make your teeth look longer or closer together overall. One veneer can be used to improve the appearance of a single discoloured or stained tooth, while a full set can give a more uniform appearance to all of your front teeth.

Your teeth require very little preparation to receive veneers. A small amount of enamel may be removed from the tooth’s surface to aid with the bonding process, but your veneers will be made to the exact same thickness as the amount of enamel removed. Where a tooth has a small chip or crack, your veneer will be made a little thicker where it covers the crack/chip.

To ensure an entirely natural look, your dentist will carefully select a shade of porcelain or composite material that closely matches the natural shade of your teeth, taking into account such factors as your skin tone and hair colour too, to give a beautiful and realistic smile makeover.
