for Dental Veneers
Are dental veneers right for you? We may need to modify your tooth enamel to fit the veneer. In some cases, we can fit “no prep” veneers, where we don’t remove any enamel – we will always strive for that pathway if possible.
We prepare your tooth by removing small amounts of enamel. This gives your tooth a rougher surface for the veneer to adhere to and reduce the size of your tooth by the size of the veneer. If we don’t do this, your tooth may not hold the veneer.
We then take impressions of your teeth, including the prepared area, and we send these to a lab. The lab painstakingly crafts a beautiful veneer that, once fitted, gives you a brand new smile. This may take a few weeks – the lab technicians are perfectionists when creating your unique veneer.
If necessary, we fit a temporary veneer to your teeth until your permanent veneer is ready. The temporary veneer protects the prepared tooth whilst you wait.
We invite you back to the practice once your veneer is ready and we remove the temporary veneer. We then carefully place your unique veneer on your prepared tooth.
You should take a week to adjust to your new veneer. After this, we invite you back a final time. We inspect the veneers to make sure everything is to our high standards. We finish by polishing the veneer, so it gleams. You can now enjoy your new smile.

Cerinate® Lumineers™ are porcelain veneers, custom-made for your teeth. Cerinate® Lumineers™ are porcelain shells that are bonded onto the front of your teeth without any of the preliminary grinding or shaving that many porcelain veneers varieties require. Although Cerinate® Lumineers™ are not suitable for every case, if you have suitable teeth, only two visits to Woodborough House are required for us to painlessly reshape, straighten and whiten your smile.
Macveneers™ are the preferred choice in porcelain veneers among athletes, celebrities and other public figures in the U.S. Made with pressed ceramics, Macveneers™ are stain resistant and nearly twice as durable as traditional porcelain veneers. They provide added protection for your teeth. Colour-matching is applied all the way from the inside of the veneer to the outer shell, ensuring the closest colour match to existing teeth and much greater realism.
Da Vinci porcelain veneers™
Developed in California, Da Vinci porcelain veneers™ provide our patients with beautiful, restored smiles, similar to those seen on the U.S. reality show, “Extreme Makeover”.
Da Vinci porcelain veneers™ employ a thin sheet of porcelain that adheres to each tooth. Once it is treated and harden, they mould perfectly to enhance your smile. Woodborough House will match the veneers™ to compliment the hue of your natural teeth.
