What is a Veneer?
Veneers are thin slices of porcelain. These are precisely made to fit over the visible surface of front teeth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail.

Why might I have a Veneer?
Veneers are an ideal way of treating discoloured or unsightly teeth, closing gaps between front teeth, or repairing chips and cracks.

How are Veneers made?
A small amount of enamel is removed from the tooth, usually the same thickness as the veneer will be. An impression is taken by the dentist and sent to a dental technician for the veneer to be made in the laboratory. The veneer is then bonded to the tooth to form a strong and natural-looking repair. Sometimes a natural colour composite material is used instead of porcelain. Composite veneers can be completed in one visit and involve bonding tooth-coloured filling material to the front of the tooth. Although these veneers are slightly more prone to staining and have a shorter life, they are easily replaced.

Modern Veneers

LUMINEERS BY CERINATE are porcelain veneers that offer the painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile.
LUMINEERS are contact lens-thin and are placed over existing teeth without having to remove painful tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers). LUMINEERS is the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discoloured or misaligned teeth.

Piyush Patel is qualified to apply these contact lens-thin "smile shapers" to teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual.

LUMINEERS can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them.
In just a few visits you can have a new brighter smile that is clinically proven to last over 20 years - and it is completely reversible since your natural tooth structure is still intact!

  • No anaesthetic required procedure is pain free
  • Minimal preparation, if required keeping your natural teeth intact! Unlike veneer procedures that require grinding, cutting and removal of tooth structure.
  • No post-operative sensitivity.
  • Extremely natural-looking because they are translucent patented porcelain.
  • No temporary restorations required.
  • Restore and strengthen teeth.
  • Can be placed over crowns and rejuvenate old dental bridge work
