Your local Surbiton dentist reviews this popular treatment.

At Confidental Clinic, we perform a lot of general dentistry treatments. However, we also provide a huge selection of cosmetic dentistry as well, with one of the most popular ones being porcelain veneers. More and more people have been visiting our Surbiton dentist for veneers within the past few years. This is not only because of the excellent treatment and standard of care we provide, but also because so many celebrities have had them, and naturally the general public want to replicate that dazzling, ‘A list’ look. With advances in technology and affordable prices, that ‘A list’ look is now much more accessible to all of us.

Why Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are used for lots of different types of teeth. A person may have a good smile, but feel they want a ‘perfect smile’ which is something porcelain veneers can provide. They can also correct cracked, discoloured, misaligned and malformed teeth.

If you are considering getting porcelain veneers, it is likely you want to know all about them before you commit to getting them. If you want a personalised consultation where we can discuss a treatment plan that it completely individual to you, we would advise you pop in and speak to one of our friendly consultants. However, if you would like some general information, these pro’s and con’s should help you get a clearer idea about porcelain veneers:


They Improve The Appearance Of Your Teeth

Porcelain veneers can help correct the appearance of teeth that are discoloured, cracked, misaligned, or that have general imperfections that other treatments cannot correct.

They Look Realistic

Porcelain veneers are made of high quality materials and are tailored to each individual, which means they look completely realistic.

They Feel Realistic

Porcelain veneers actually mimic teeth enamel, a quality you do not get with any other material.

A Huge Choice Of Tones And Colours

Porcelain veneers will be in the shade/colour you choose, and will be individually designed just for you. The colour palette for porcelain veneers is huge, so you can get the exact colour you want.

Stain Resistant

Porcelain veneers are very stain resistant, and will remain resistant to lots of different products or activities that may cause staining. With porcelain veneers you can drink coffee, red wine and other staining food and drink without having to worry about the appearance of your veneers being effected, as long as you clean your teeth properly.

They Are Extremely Durable

Porcelain veneers are designed to last up to 20 years. This is much longer than the average 7 year lifespan of a composite veneer.


With today’s technology, including 3D imaging, you can have your veneers designed, created and fitted in as little as two visits.

Able To Cover A Multitude Of Issues

Rather than getting lots of different cosmetic dentistry procedures done separately to correct teeth, porcelain veneers can deal with several issues at once. So if you have teeth that are misshapen, misaligned, crooked and stained, you can have all of those issues resolved with just one type of treatment.

Easy Maintenance

Porcelain veneers are easy to care for. When you have them done at our convenient Surbiton dentist, we will provide you with a detailed aftercare plan to help you keep them looking fantastic for many years to come.


Not Everyone Can Have Them

Like all dental treatments, everyone is different and not everyone will be suitable for porcelain veneers. Issues like excessive teeth grinding, advanced stage periodontal disease and weakened teeth are all potentially problematic issues that could prevent us from applying porcelain veneers.

During your initial consultation with us we will be able to make an assessment and let you know if you are suitable for them or not. If you are unable to have them, we will offer you suitable alternatives.

They Require You To Invest Money

Porcelain veneers will of course cost money, and whether or not that is affordable is individual to each patient. However, it is important to note that they are cost effective in comparison with having lots of different issues dealt with via several separate treatments, and we do offer a range of payment options for patients looking to have porcelain veneers fitted.

A Few People May Get Slightly Sensitive Teeth

The fitting of porcelain veneers require some tooth enamel is removed from your natural teeth. This loss of enamel may mean, for a few people, your teeth become more sensitive to hot and cold.
