Veneers Rochester

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are a dental cosmetic treatment which can quickly and affordably update the appearance of your teeth. Made from either a thin piece of porcelain or using a composite resin, veneers are carefully stuck to the front of your tooth to instantly update the look of your teeth.

Dental veneers can be used to disguise a variety of dental problems including:


  • Chipped teeth
  • Worn down teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Heavily stained or discoloured teeth

Type of dental veneers in Rochester

At Eastgate Dental we offer two types of dental veneers: Porcelain and composite veneers.


Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are renowned for their quality, strength and durability. If they are well looked after, they can last between 10 and 15 years which means they are have a good long-term value. Porcelain veneers are exceptional in appearance, they have a translucent look which makes them like tooth enamel.  They are highly resistant to chipping and staining. Porcelain veneers need to be custom-made for you so the application may take a little longer than composite veneers.


Composite veneers

Veneers made from composite material is sometimes also called composite bonding. A putty like resin is moulded and applied directly to your teeth. It is hardened and fixed into place using a special light. Your teeth are then polished to give a natural looking finish.

Composite veneers are less expensive than porcelain veneers. The process for fitting these veneers is much quicker as the material is made up whilst you wait. Finally, composite veneers are a reversible process so you can remove or replace your veneers at a later stage should you wish.
