Porcelain Veneers in Southend
The simple way to upgrade your smile
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain material that fit neatly over your teeth. They can change the shape, alignment and shade of your teeth, offering an instant smile makeover. Veneers are commonly used for the “social six”, which are the top front teeth visible when you smile. For a Hollywood-style smile makeover, veneers are the obvious choice.
Your journey to a perfect smile
If you decide to go ahead with a veneer restoration, we will invite you to the practice to prepare your teeth. The supporting teeth are prepared by removing some of the enamel to make space for the veneers. We then take impressions and send this information to the lab. We will then permanently cement the veneer in place over your natural teeth for an instant makeover.

Do I have to avoid any food with veneers?
Generally you can eat any food you like with veneers. Very hard food such as boiled sweets, very crusty bread and ice can increase the risk of cracking your veneers. You should also avoid staining food such as coffee and red wine as this can leave deposits on your veneers.
Is the veneers procedure painful?
No, the procedure is minimally invasive and your teeth and gums will be numbed at all times. You should not experience any discomfort during your veneers procedure.
Do veneers ruin your teeth?
No, porcelain veneers do not ruin your teeth. In many ways, they protect your natural teeth by providing protection and support. Since the porcelain veneers sit over your natural teeth like shells, they can provide additional support to the tooth and help to prevent chips and cracks.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
The lifespan of your veneers will depend entirely on how well you take care of them. Porcelain veneers are very strong and can last for longer than 8 years with the right care. They can also be prone to chips if the patient does not follow the aftercare advice.
