Veneers will transform crooked,discoloured and chipped teeth. Veneers can also close spaces between teeth where orthodontic treatment is unsuitable.

Veneers are thin porcelain laminates that fit over your teeth. They are indistinguishable from natural teeth. Minimal shaping of the front surface of the teeth is required prior to veneers being hand made to precisely fit. At a second visit the porcelain veneer is bonded to your tooth to complete the treatment.

To make an appointment, please call us on 028 6634 0005 , or email us at info@radiantdentistry.co.uk

Diagnosis and treatment planning.

This is what we would recoginse as the first stage with our patients we like to meet the patient and exam the patients mouth and discuss what the patient would like to get from this treatment just to make sure that this is the best siitable method for the patient and the patient knows their options this stage helps the patient explain to ourselves the result that they are trying to achieve. Sometimes we may take X-rays and possibly make impressions of your mouth and teeth to stage the next process of the Veneers journey.


In order for us to prepare a patients tooth for a veneer, we will remove about half a millimetre of enamel from the tooth surface this is something that is required, which is roughly equal to the thickness of the veneer to be added.

If the impressions were not taken at the first stage of this journey this is the time when we then take the impression of the tooth.

The model of the teeth is then sent of the laboratory which then contructs the veneer for the patient. This usually takes around 1 to 2 weeks for us then to receive the veneers back from the laboratory.


This is the final stage were we premanenlty attach the veneer to the tooth with cement, we temporarily place it on your tooth to examine the fit ( make sure this is secure and their is no gaps for plaque and colour matches the rest of the patients teeth making it look as natural as possible.

The patients teeth is then cleaned to allow the bonding process. The cement (glue) is applied to the veneer and it is then placed into position.

Once the veneer is properly positioned, we will apply a special light beam to the veneer, which activates chemicals in the cement causing it to harden or cure very quickly.

The final steps involve removing any excess cement as this can make the tooth feel rough and patients tend to keep running their to tongue over this area, the comes the evaluating of the patients bite and making final adjustments as necessary.

We ask the patient to return for a follow-up visit after a couple of weeks to check how the gums are responding to the veneer and to once again examine its placement make sure that everything is ok.
