When you smile, your teeth are the stars of the show. When they look good, so does your smile. If you aren’t happy with the appearance of your teeth, you may find yourself hesitant to smile and put your teeth on display. At All Smiles Dental in Bromley we can help your overcome this burden, ridding you of that self-conscious feeling with our custom-made porcelain veneers.
Veneers: the basics
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit over the fronts of your teeth to disguise a whole host of imperfections. The list is long but here are just a few common reasons for seeking treatment with veneers:
- Chipped, stained or misshapen teeth;
- Slight misalignments of your teeth;
- Small unsightly gaps between your teeth.
All of these problems can be addressed with our high quality porcelain veneers.
Your treatment journey
At our caring practice, we always take the time to find out exactly what you want to achieve from your treatment. Our highly trained dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and mouth. This may include taking some photos and x-rays of your teeth. We will also take some impressions of your teeth to help construct your veneers. You’ll know exactly what you’re getting as we use state-of-art software to create a mock-up of what your smile will look like after treatment.
To precisely fit your veneers, we may need to remove a thin layer of the outer coating of your teeth. This provides a slightly roughened surface to help with the attachment of your veneers using a dental adhesive. This also creates just the right amount of space for your veneers to snugly fit in.
We pride ourselves on producing a final finish that will leave you smiling. This is why your veneer treatment will be carried out in two stages. In the first stage you will be fitted with temporary veneers. More photos will be taken to check that you are happy with the look and feel of your veneers. Permanent veneers will then placed to complete your new look.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth. This gives an immediate smile transformation. They are individually designed for each patient. These cosmetic enhancements are made from advanced material that closely resembles the appearance of natural teeth. Dentists can use veneers for an impressive number of cosmetic corrections, from teeth whitening all the way to orthodontic adjustments.
Thanks to their realistic appearance and wide array of functions, porcelain veneers in Bromley rank among the most trusted and popular procedures in the cosmetic dentistry field.
The history of veneers
Veneers in Bromley have become especially popular in the past couple of decades. Veneers originated nearly a hundred years ago, during the early days of film. In the late 1920s, a famed Hollywood dentist conceived of veneers to enhance actors’ and actresses’ smiles on the screen. He would temporarily apply false fronts to the stars’ teeth. This would give them the stunning smiles that quickly became a trademark of Hollywood beauty.
However, it took until the late 1960s for anything like the porcelain veneers we know today to be commonly in use in dentistry. The 1960s ushered in the modern era of adhesive dentistry. By lightly etching teeth with a mild acidic solution, it created a stronger bonding surface for dental sealants and restorations. In the 1980s, these techniques were advanced to the application of porcelain veneers. From this point, everyone had access to the stunning Hollywood smiles of days’ past, leading to the success and popularity of veneers in today’s modern life.

If you’re thinking “new year, new smile”, you may have a niggle in the back of your mind that cosmetic dental treatment takes a long time to complete. You might fear that you’ll be halfway to summer before your new smile is ready to show off to the world.
That doesn’t have to be the case. Every patient’s cosmetic dental needs are different, but for many there’s a fast and easy way to boost your smile, disguising minor imperfections and giving you a natural-looking smile to be proud of in just a couple of appointments.
Porcelain veneers are very thin facings that are placed on the front of your teeth, similar in concept to a false fingernail. They are usually fitted to your top teeth and can hide a range of imperfections including chipped teeth, small gaps between your teeth, minor problems with alignment, discoloured or stained teeth when teeth whitening treatment is not an option.
The aim is to aesthetically improve your smile, and can be used on a single tooth or as a full set covering all of your front teeth. The result will be natural, healthy-looking teeth that you want to show off.
Another huge benefit of veneers is that, unlike with other treatments, very little preparation of your teeth is needed before your veneers are fitted. A very small amount of tooth enamel may be removed to help with the bonding process before the veneers are bonded to your tooth surface using a special, strong dental adhesive. If any enamel is removed, the veneers will be made to exactly the same thickness, while if a tooth is chipped, a thicker piece of porcelain will be used to cover the chip.
Here’s how treatment with veneers works:
- You have a consultation with your dentist. If they agree veneers are the best option, you will be given a treatment plan.
- Your dentist will gather all the data needed to make your veneers, using photographs, x-rays and casts. They will also colour-match your veneers to the natural colour of your teeth.
- We will use this information to create a digital mock-up of your veneers.
- When you are happy with the results, your teeth will be prepared.
- Before your veneers are fitted, we will attach temporary veneers to check you are happy.
- Your final veneers will be fitted only when you are completely happy with how they look and feel.
It really is as simple as that!
