Are you interested in having Veneers?

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, prices can be some of the most competitive in the country, making Hockerill Dental one of the most attractive prospects for veneers.

If you have stained, damaged, chipped, ground, broken, gapped or even crooked teeth, veneers can really help to give you your smile back. Essentially a veneer is a choice of laminate porcelain, ceramic or a composite bonding material which are all tooth coloured. See more information about veneers.

These are then cemented to the front surface of your teeth, improving their appearance considerably. Porcelain is generally the best option since they last longer and are less prone to staining, though depending on your budget, you may wish to go for composite.

The porcelain option lasts between 5 and 10 years while the composite will only last one or two, but just how long they last depends on your oral hygiene.

Hockerill Dental provides a complete smile makeover using Veneers. This will give the illusion of a particular look, chosen by you.
