What are veneers? 

Veneers are used to improve the shape, shade, and position of your teeth. There are 2 materials used for dental veneers; composite and porcelain.

Porcelain veneers

These are thin layers of ceramic which are precision made by a highly-skilled dental technician. Porcelain veneers are the gold standard treatment for improving a patient’s smile as they are minimally invasive, last the longest and are wear- and stain-resistant over their entire lifetime and as such, are the most expensive. They are bonded to the teeth to ensure a long-lasting result. Some minor tooth preparation is usually required to enable them to fit well but this is usually around 0.5mm and can even be done without anaesthetic. We normally expect porcelain veneers to last 10+ years before needing replacement.

Composite veneers

Composite is the same material used for white fillings on back teeth, only in this treatment it is sculpted to the front teeth to change the shape, shade and position. The material has its limitations but is currently one of the most popular treatments around due to the lack of tooth preparation required and the lower cost compared to porcelain veneers. The drawbacks are composite stains, chips and wears faster than porcelain, so they usually need repairs or replacement more frequently. Luckily this is an easy procedure as new composite can be bonded to old composite to freshen things up as time goes on. Composite veneers will usually last between 3-7 years but can last longer if they are looked after well.

Dental veneer process and procedure


Veneers are an extremely popular choice if your teeth aren’t as aligned as you would like, or maybe you have a small chip in your tooth, which is noticeable when you smile? Maybe your teeth are stained, stopping you from showing your full smile? Whatever the reason, veneers can certainly help. Providing you with the perfect smile, getting veneers doesn’t require any major procedures, and they look like natural teeth.

Say About Us

I used to suffer anxiety when visiting the dentist due to a bad experience years ago, this resulted in me not going for years! Abbey dental have changed all that for me, I no longer stress or worry about going and their treatment is second to none. They have given me the confidence again and have not judged me or looked down at me. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
As soon as you walk in to Abbey Dental Practice you are welcomed with a friendly face. Rob and his team are friendly, professional, but above all they put you at ease. I have never had a fear of the dentist, but Abbey Dental Practice is the most customer friendly dentist I have ever been registered with. Would highly recommend without hesitation.
As someone who has been afraid of going to the dentist for many years, I was fortunate to go to Abbey Dental Practice. Everyone there is so helpful and friendly and Robert Handley is so calming and reassuring, I finally lost the fear. After some years due to gum recession I was advised implants were an option. After some thought I decided to go ahead and it was the best decision I could have made as I have no trouble eating at all.
I travelled over two hours for my appointment this morning, normally takes an hour, got stuck in heavy traffic. My family and friends ask me why haven't I changed dentist since moving to North Wales. My answer is simple......."I trust them"
