Time to improve your smile

If yellowing, unattractive-looking teeth have you feeling blue, or if you’re embarrassed about a chipped tooth or slightly misaligned teeth, porcelain veneers in Bournemouth, at Smile Stories can be a way to bring the beauty back to your smile.

Porcelain veneers will restore your teeth’ appearance and improve their overall look by fixing minor dental issues such as spacing, alignment, size, shape and colour. Our dentists will happily evaluate your smile through smile makeover and transformation, and discuss whether veneers are the right choice for you.


What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are designed to cover the front of the teeth with a thin ceramic layer that mimics the natural tooth enamel. Once in place, only you and your dentist will know they are there.

Veneers are a versatile way to address many cosmetic dental problems, such as discolouration. Smoking, certain medications, food and drink and even ageing will all affect your teeth eventually, turning them discolored or yellow. Porcelain veneers can quickly make your teeth look white again, which can take years off your appearance. A single veneer can also be used to target a discoloured tooth that might have been particularly stubborn in the face of other whitening procedures.

What other dental issues can veneers help?

Veneers can also improve the size and shape of the teeth. If you have a tooth that’s chipped, or teeth that are shorter than their neighbours, veneers can smooth away those flaws. If you’ve always felt like your teeth were the wrong shape or size for your face, veneers also can adjust the shape of your teeth to better balance your facial features.

Veneers can also help with the alignment and spacing of the teeth. Closing small gaps between your teeth and fixing other minor alignment issues with veneers will mean you don’t have to bother with braces if you don’t otherwise need them.

Will they affect my natural teeth?

To fit a veneer, our dentists will have to take away a small amount of your natural tooth’s enamel to ensure a snug fit. But once attached, your porcelain veneer can last for more than 10 years.
