Dental Veneers

As a part of our comprehensive treatment plans, Crown Dental is proud to offer porcelain veneers to patients who are interested in a rapid smile transformation. Our dentists offer the training and expertise needed to create a natural-looking smile in just a few visits to the clinic.

Even the healthiest of teeth may not be perfectly white and straight. While there are options that can treat crooked teeth and whiten teeth, not every patient is a good candidate for these other dental procedures. Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that can transform a smile in just a few weeks.

Feel free to smile, laugh and enjoy conversations again with a beautiful smile created by porcelain veneers.

What are veneers?

Get results you love

Veneers are an ultra-thin shell made from porcelain or a composite material. They are made to fit each tooth. Once each shell has bonded in place to each tooth veneers look natural and offer the same strength as a natural tooth would.

There are advantages to using porcelain over the direct composite veneers but there are also some compelling reasons for patients to select the composite options.

What are veneers used for?

Healthy teeth may have an odd shape or colour, or there may be gaps between teeth that are otherwise not good candidates for an orthodontic solution.

Cracked or chipped teeth that are not in any danger of further damage or decay can be restored to a natural look with porcelain veneers. Those who have suffered with grinding their teeth, and now face worn down teeth, can restore their smile in almost no time at all.

What are the options available with dental veneers?

Our clinic offers E.MAX® Ceramic Veneers and Direct Composite Veneers for the benefit of our patients

  • The primary advantage of E.MAX® Ceramic Veneers is their longevity. Porcelain veneers last longer than any other type of veneer. This makes them an attractive option for those who are looking for the toughness and durability in a veneer that will last longer than other options. - Direct Composite Veneers
  • Direct composite veneers are a budget-friendlier alternative to porcelain veneers. They are made using a combination of materials. This reduces the cost and makes them an affordable alternative to porcelain. Composite veneers are a good choice to consider if you have a small crack or chip in a tooth. They will hide the imperfections in the tooth while protecting the rest of the tooth.
  • It is important to note that they may be cheaper, but they are not as durable as other types of veneers. This means that they will need to be replaced more often than porcelain veneers.
  • Typically, a direct composite veneer lasts no more than 2 years. This is an important consideration if you would like maintain that pearly white smile.
  • In our clinic, we use the VENUS PEARL and VENUS DIAMOND composite material brands.
What is the veneers procedure?
Cosmetic Dental Treatments Dublin The veneers procedure itself is fairly straightforward. Patients typically need up to three appointments in order to get a full smile makeover. During the first consultation patients will be informed about each available option, and the treatment itself will be planned. The preparation and bonding procedures will be scheduled shortly after the initial consultation. Direct composite veneers are typically completed in just one appointment. Many patients opt to have their teeth professional cleaned prior to the veneers being bonded to their teeth. The dental veneers procedure always starts with thorough diagnostics, including digital X-rays and intra-oral and extra-oral images of your smile. These images will help to plan your veneers. It is important to note that dental veneers can only be bonded to teeth that are healthy and not in need of fillings or root canal treatments. - An impression of your teeth will be made so that a study model of your smile can be created. This model will be used to make sure that your teeth are well aligned, and the bite is correct. To prepare the teeth for the veneers, the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. Usually, about half a millimetre of the tooth is removed, which may require a local anaesthetic. After the tooth is prepared, the dentist carefully bonds and sculpts the composite material onto your teeth. For ceramic veneers, a mould is taken of the teeth, which is sent to the laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers. - Temporary veneers will be bonded to your teeth for up to two weeks, while the veneers are being fabricated. - When your ceramic veneers are ready, the dentist places each veneer on the teeth to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or colour. Our dentists will double check the work to make sure that your veneers fit perfectly, feel comfortable and look beautiful. At this point, the colour of the veneers can still be adjusted with the shade of the cement to be used. The colour cannot be altered after veneers are cemented. You will be able to check the veneers in the mirror before fitting them permanently, to make sure that you are happy with them. - To apply the veneer, the tooth is cleansed with chemicals to ensure a bond. A dental cement is placed between the veneer and tooth, and a light beam hardens the cement.

Perhaps the best advantage of veneers is that they offer an almost immediate transformation of a smile that simply was not what the patient wanted. Veneers look natural once they are in place. They are designed to fit your teeth and to work with your bite. Patients will find that veneers are much less likely to become discolored and stained. They can also achieve a straightened smile without the need for braces. There are few disadvantages to dental veneers. Perhaps the most compelling consideration for patients to keep in mind is that once teeth have been buffed down for placement of the veneers, that enamel cannot be replaced. Patients often find that they need to have veneers for life.

  • review rating 1  I had an appointment at 9 am at Crown dental, the receptionist, me and the dentist were waiting for an assistant (Sofia) for an hour standing at the front door. When she turned up with absolutely no care in the world, she didn't say hi or sorry not to even mention that she hasn't pick up the phone from the dentist and the receptionist, just turned up out of the blue. I was already 1 hour late into my very important treatment, and when I finally got to sit down on the chair, starting with impressions, the doctor asked the assistant Sofia to prepare the impression and at the end she did awful proportions of the impression, it would not solidify, she has the cheek and very little care of me (patient), of my precious time and money and the stress I have to go through to get a crown done. Unfortunately I was not able to finish my treatment because there were other people booked in for an appointment so she had to return me back home. I travelled taking 2 buses to get there just to get an impression that wasn't even prepared properly. The assistant Sofia is a young person and definitely not trained up to be taking up a serious job like this. She is absolutely incompetent, patients health and best care isn't in her best interest, and the ethics behind performance absolutely makes her a person unable to take on such a serious and responsible job. The dentist was unable to do her job because of the lack of help and lack of consideration that the assistant Sofia offered her.

  • review rating 5  Both myself and my husband have been Dr Erika's patients for over a decade. Crown dental is the cleanest, most equipped dental practice I have ever been to. Both dentists and the nurses are highly qualified and are brilliant with nervous patients. My husband had a dental implant done here with A+ results. Their prices are highly competitive but without compromising on quality. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

  • review rating 5  I was always scared of the dentist, but not anymore. I received my crowns at Crown Dental, and I couldn't be happier with the results. The treatment was pain free, the team made me at ease during the process. I can't stop smiling and showing my perfect teeth.

    thumb Erika Borsodi
  • review rating 5  I've been a patient at Crown Dental for over 6 years. When I was younger I played professional Rugby and lost a good number of my front teeth due to a freak-accident (knee in the face). For years I had a denture, which was a hassle to eat with. It also made me self conscious in social interactions, until I could bare it no longer. Crown Dental was recommended to me and it literally changed my life in so many ways! Over this period I had 4 implants, 5 crowns, 1 bridge and several root canals done, along with a couple of fillings and cleanings. I now have an amazing smile that all my friends and family are complimenting me about, it restored my confidence and gave me a brighter outlook on life. Thank you Dr. Erika for changing my life.

  • review rating 5  Great dentists and friendly staff! I had bone augmentation, 2 implants and 3 crowns done. The whole process took about a year due to the complexity but it certainly was worth it. I am delighted with the results and will happily recommend the clinic to my friends and family.
