At Dublin18 we understand the importance of feeling confident when you smile and we aim to create beautiful, natural smiles using the latest and most effective dental treatments. One of our most popular cosmetic dental treatments is veneers.
If you’ve ever wished for a flawless smile or you hate looking in the mirror because you dislike your crooked or discoloured teeth, why not contact us today to find out about how veneers could transform your smile and boot your confidence?
What are veneers?
Veneers are very thin, tooth-shaped pieces of ceramic material, normally porcelain, that are placed over the top of the teeth to create a perfect new smile. The veneers are custom-made to ensure that they fit your teeth perfectly and you can choose from different shapes and shades to create your ideal smile; some people choose a natural look, while others prefer a more glamorous, celebrity-style smile.
Veneers are an ideal treatment for people who have:
- chipped teeth
- worn or uneven teeth
- discoloured or stained teeth
- small gaps between the teeth
Veneer treatment is usually carried out in two sessions; during the first session, the teeth are prepared, which involves removing a very fine layer of the tooth tissue and then creating an impression using dental putty. The veneers are then custom-made to fit the mould. Once they are ready, the veneers can then be applied over the top of the natural teeth to produce a beautiful new smile.
At Dublin18 Dental Care near Foxrock Village we are proud to offer two of the world’s leading veneer treatments: Lumineers and Da Vinci veneers, both of which have been featured on famous American and British television makeover shows.
Lumineers are ultra-thin veneers, which are just 2mm thick; they have a natural looking glossy sheen and as they are so fine, only minimal tooth preparation is required.
Da Vinci veneers are made in California; they are very thin and have a very lifelike finish, which makes them a popular choice.

If you’ve ever looked at the photographs from the Oscars or watched a catwalk show, you may have wondered just how everyone has such amazing smiles. The answer, in many cases, is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers create truly amazing, radiant smiles, so now you can you have a Hollywood style smile too!
About porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are very thin tooth-shaped sheets of porcelain, which are placed over the top of the natural teeth to create a flawless set of pearly whites. You can choose the shade and shape of the veneers and they can help to address common problems, including staining and discolouration, general wear and tear, chipped and worn teeth and spaces between the teeth.
Before treatment, patients undergo a consultation to find out more about veneers and learn about the treatment process. Our friendly dentists are there to answer any questions and allay any fears and they will explain how the treatment works and what you can expect from your new veneers.
We offer a range of veneer treatments, including celebrity favourites, Lumineers and Da Vinci veneers. Many of you will be familiar with these treatments, as they are featured on lifestyle and makeover television shows on a regular basis.
Lumineers and Da Vinci veneers are both very thin, which means that minimal tooth preparation is needed before the veneers are fitted. The veneers are custom-made for the individual and the results are incredible. The process is also very simple; your custom-made veneers are simply placed over the top of your natural teeth to create a perfect new smile and once you are happy with the look of your teeth, they will be cemented into position.
If you’re longing for a celebrity smile and you cannot wait to flash a bright, healthy looking smile, contact us today at Dublin18 Dental Care near Bray to find out about our amazing veneer treatments.
You may have noticed something strange going on in celebrities’ mouths recently. It’s hard to miss. All the stars are sporting brilliantly white, perfectly shaped teeth, seemingly from nowhere. But how did they do it?
Good oral hygiene is obviously a factor, but you could clean your teeth ten times a day and still fall far short of having a Hollywood smile. Expensive cosmetic dentistry has been all the rage for a long time in Tinsel Town, and recently celebrities closer to home have been getting in on the action.
Cheryl Cole, for example, now has one of the best smiles in the industry. She claims that this is due to wearing invisible braces for many years and teeth whitening procedures, but the clear change in shape also suggests that she has had veneers fitted.
Veneers are a thin layer of dental porcelain bonded to the surface of a tooth to improve its shape. They can last for up to thirty years if they are of good quality and well looked after. Unfortunately they are rather expensive for the average buyer, often costing hundreds of pounds for one tooth.
If you are determined to achieve a perfect celebrity smile (and have the means to do so) it can be a great boost to your confidence. Cabinteeely Dental Care dentists can work wonders for patients in the Rathmichael area. You’ll be flashing your new smile at everyone! However, be careful you don’t go overboard, as many celebrities’ teeth are now too perfect and therefore look fake. It is important to find the right dentist who can advise you about your options.
Most of us will have to settle with teeth whitening kits and frantic tooth brushing until we can raise the hundreds of pounds required for high quality veneers. Maybe natural, healthy teeth aren’t too bad after all.
