Cosmetic Veneers

Here at Space Dental, we offer professional and aesthetically pleasing cosmetic veneer treatments. Our treatments for both porcelain and composite veneers have great results that speak for themselves, and we pride ourselves on the informative, yet personable, approach we take in our cosmetic dental practice.

Tackling the controversy around cosmetic veneers, we have shown patients who have had poor experiences with veneers in the past that there is an alternative, and the opportunity to achieve the picture-perfect smile is just a consultation away. If you are looking to get the latest information on cosmetic veneers and what to expect from the treatment, let us share our years of knowledge and experience with you.

The Rise In Popularity
Of Cosmetic Veneers

With the rise of awareness and accessibility to cosmetic dental treatments, it is no surprise that we are seeing more patients opting for cosmetic veneers than we have seen before. Cosmetic veneers have been around for decades, however, new technological advances within the dentistry world have now led to the creation of the most natural-looking and durable veneers. The versatility of cosmetic veneers is extremely attractive to patients, as they have multiple options when choosing veneers, all of which can create their dream smile.

There is no denying the influence that social media has had on our attention to appearance, which is another notable reason why we have seen so many people opting for cosmetic veneers in order to look and feel their very best. At Space Dental, we believe we are one of the most qualified dental practices to provide the best treatment and experience for cosmetic veneers and, over the years, we have created the smiles of some of the most influential people on social media.

Tackling Cosmetic Veneer Misconceptions

With the rise of popularity comes a rise in misconceptions surrounding cosmetic veneers. If you have been looking into cosmetic veneers recently, you have likely heard the term ‘Turkey teeth’ being associated with cosmetic veneers. This term stems from the overseas veneer treatments that patients have cheaply received, which, unfortunately, has resulted in botched surgeries and oral health complications.

Here at Space Dental, we can guarantee the quality and professionalism that should be given with all forms of cosmetic dental treatment, and we ensure that the appropriate time is taken to discuss our patient’s desired outcomes. Health and safety are at the height of importance for us here at Space Dental, but we also want our guests to leave with their finished cosmetic veneer treatment knowing they have the exact outcome they expected.

The Types Of
Cosmetic Veneers Available

There are different types of cosmetic veneer treatments available for patients looking to perfect their smiles. Here at Space Dental, we offer the most sought-after veneer treatments including porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Whilst they both can achieve the same aesthetic results, they both have different practices required for completion and durability.

Porcelain cosmetic veneers are considered permanent veneers and are custom-fit onto a patient's natural teeth. They are designed for longevity, as well as looking as similar to our natural enamel as possible. This procedure for cosmetic veneers requires some time for the porcelain shells to be made, depending on the number of teeth to which the veneers will be applied, and it might take one or two visits before the treatment is finished. This type of cosmetic veneer treatment does require some changes to be made to the natural tooth, however, this is very minimal and should only be around ½ a milimetre.

Composite cosmetic veneers, on the other hand, uses similar materials and techniques to composite bonding, however, they require a more sizable amount of composite resin to mould the shape of the teeth. Composite veneers are a great option for patients who want to change the appearance of their teeth, without committing to the permanent changes that porcelain veneers require and this treatment is often complete within one appointment. It is pain-free and requires no changes to be made.

What Are The Benefits Of Cosmetic Veneers?

There is an extensive range of dental imperfections that cosmetic veneers can fix. Cosmetic veneers are a long-term dental solution that can last over a decade, meaning that with the correct maintenance and care, your cosmetic veneers will be a long-term investment into a beautiful smile. Additionally, cosmetic veneers look extremely natural. Porcelain veneers in particular have the same texture and appearance as our dental enamel, meaning your new teeth will look natural and not artificial.

As an award-winning cosmetic dental practice, we can guarantee that our professional and friendly staff will successfully fix and improve any dental faults you may be facing. We would recommend that patients always book an initial consultation to discuss their smile expectations, and what we would suggest to guide them to that point.

What To Expect During Dental Veneer Consultations

We would always recommend patients visit our luxury dental practices for an initial consultation. Our team of dentists will then carry out a consultation for your teeth, checking on the health of your teeth and gums. This comprehensive exam will determine if patients qualify for cosmetic veneers, as any signs of infection or other health risks would need to be healed before any treatments are carried out.

Once our patients learn that they qualify for cosmetic veneers, we will then take the time to discuss their desired outcome as a result of receiving their treatments. Our award-winning team will offer an informative plan as to how this outcome can be achieved, and offer alternative options if suitable. We work together with our patients to tailor their treatments and guarantee an outcome they are happy with.

Consultations for cosmetic veneers are an essential part of the treatment process. It allows us as your trusted cosmetic dentists to generate a seamless plan that will guide our patients through their smile journey, and ensure they leave with a happier smile than they arrived with.


There are multiple reasons why patients get cosmetic veneers over other cosmetic dental treatments. The first reason is that cosmetic veneers are great for fixing aesthetic problems that people have accumulated, such as chipping and teeth stains.

Patients who experience teeth chipping will benefit from the durable structure of porcelain veneers. Patients who have stained teeth tend to choose cosmetic veneers to hide the colour imperfections that have developed. Some dental stains can be permanent, therefore cosmetic veneers can not only cover these imperfections, but also offer a whiter appearance using brighter porcelain or composite resin. The shading will be adjusted to each patient's liking, therefore you have the peace of mind that they are fully in control of the results process.
The question of which cosmetic veneer treatment is better is heavily dependent on your purpose for getting veneers. For example, it could be argued that porcelain veneers are the better option for patients seeking a more durable and stronger option, as they are a stronger material than composite.

On the other hand, patients looking for a reversible cosmetic veneer would benefit more from composite veneers, as they do not require any removal of enamel which is required for porcelain veneers. Each type of cosmetic veneer has its advantages and disadvantages, therefore it does come down to a patient's preference. Here at Space Dental, we guide our patients through the treatment process starting with a comprehensive consultation, to ensure that we create the best smile journey possible.
If a patient is apprehensive about getting cosmetic veneers, multiple other treatments are available, which can similarly achieve outstanding results. The best alternatives for cosmetic veneers include composite bonding, whitening, or even dental implants if patients have missing teeth. A Smile Makeover, which uses the combination of a few different cosmetic dental treatments, may also be recommended based on your smile expectations. Speaking to one of our dentists would be wise to determine what could be done to achieve the wanted dental appearance.
Some cosmetic veneers are considered to be a permanent treatment, more specifically porcelain veneers. This is because porcelain veneers require the removal of enamel to successfully fit the created porcelain cap. This should not put patients off porcelain veneers, however, as this is less than a millimetre of enamel which is removed. This means that, should you wish to forgo dentures in the future, the appearance of your natural teeth won’t be affected too much.

Patients should also keep in mind that cosmetic veneers will need replacing after a decade or so, and the average lifespan is roughly 10 years, or even 20 years in some cases. The time scale of needing a replacement set of cosmetic veneers can be prolonged with a sufficient level of care at home, and also with regular checkups.
No, you should not be in pain during treatment for cosmetic veneers. Patients having cosmetic veneers fitted, particularly porcelain veneers, will likely be administered a local anaesthetic so that they feel comfortable during the tooth preparation and placement of the veneer. Most patients do not report signs of pain, which is to be expected if you are getting your cosmetic veneers from an award-winning, trusted practice such as Space Dental. The comfort and happiness during treatments for our patients is the most important thing for us.
