If you thought dazzling, flawless smiles were just for celebrities, think again! We can create stunning smiles using the latest veneer treatments for patients in and around Donnybrook.
The ins and outs of veneer treatment
Veneers are small, light shells, which are usually made from porcelain; they are placed over the top of your natural teeth to create amazing aesthetics. You can choose to have a full set of veneers or partial treatment to repair chipped or worn teeth, for example, and there are different shades and shapes on offer. Veneers are versatile and you can get involved in the smile design process to create the smile of your dreams; whether you want a subtle and natural look, or you long for full-on glamour, we can help!
Veneer treatment is often used to create perfect smiles, but it can also serve a purpose for patients who have chipped, stained or worn teeth or spaces between their teeth. Treatment usually involves two separate sessions after the consultation, which are used to create the impressions of your teeth and then to fit the veneers.
During the first session, we will prepare your teeth and then create impressions and take photographs of your teeth. These impressions and images of your teeth are used to create your bespoke veneers.
The second session is used to fit your veneers. We will place the veneers on your teeth and then ask you to take a look and check that you are happy with the look of your smile. We will then secure your veneers onto the teeth using strong dental glue.
Our veneer treatments
We are delighted to offer some of the world’s leading veneer treatments, including Lumineers and Da Vinci veneers, both of which have featured heavily on television makeover shows. Both types of veneer offer strength and style, with beautiful aesthetics guaranteed.
Have you ever wondered how celebrities have such perfect smiles? Are you longing for a red carpet worthy set of bright pearly whites? If so, we have the perfect treatment for you.
Our amazing veneer treatments create beautiful smiles. Veneers are ultra-thin sheets of laminate porcelain, which are crafted to fit over the top of the natural teeth. The veneers are placed over the teeth and can hide a multitude of sins, from discolouration and staining, to chips, worn surfaces and even spaces between the teeth.
We offer Da Vinci veneers and Cerinate Lumineers, both of which produce incredible results. Da Vinci veneers shot to fame after featuring heavily on television makeover shows and Lumineers are known for their stunning translucent sheen, as well as their enhanced durability.
The veneer treatment process
The first step if you are interested in veneers is a consultation. During your consultation, your dentist will talk you through the different treatments and help you to decide which one suits you best. If you decide to go ahead with treatment, we will create impressions of your teeth, which will be used as moulds for your new veneers to ensure a perfect fit over your natural teeth. In most cases, it is necessary to remove a very thin layer of the tooth surface in order to make room for the veneers; this is not painful and will not take long. Once your new veneers are ready, we will fit them and then secure them in place. You can then start showing off your amazing new smile!
Veneers are a popular choice for patients who want a brighter, more glamorous smile, as well as those who have existing aesthetic problems they want to address. If you have any questions, our dedicated dentists will be happy to provide you with more information.

Veneers are applied over the top of the natural teeth; the veneers we use at Dublin18 Dental Care near Ballsbridge are very thin, so they do not feel uncomfortable and preparation is kept to a minimum; this prevents damage to the tooth enamel.

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.

Ah, dental veneers; False nails for the teeth, as they are often called. One dresses up for a special occasion to feel confident – who knows, you might even wear false nails – but a special occasion, importantly, ends. There is something far more fundamental about the appearance of your teeth than there is about a cocktail dress or tuxedo. It is possible to end up in a situation where the state of your teeth may weigh so heavily on your mind that the thought of another’s gaze seems terrifying. But what can help in said situation? Enter dental veneers.
What ‘exactly’ are veneers?
Going beyond the false nails analogy, Veneers are essentially wafer thin shells of material which are bonded to the teeth.
So what are they good at treating?
Elementary dear Watson, Veneers are capable of treating a number of problems. Badly stained teeth which cannot be improved by whitening procedures can essentially be covered up by dental veneers and no one will be the wiser. Teeth that have been damaged through an accident, a little too much grinding or even excessive consumption of carbonated drinks can be repaired. Gaps or spaces between teeth can also be closed via the use of veneers, providing you with a harmonised smile. Veneers are not ideal for use with crooked teeth, but can be of some use to people with only marginal misalignments. Sometimes referred to as ‘instant orthodontics’, veneers can be placed in front of crooked teeth to immediately give the impression of a uniform smile. In the long run, conventional orthodontic treatment may be a better option for crooked teeth. Conventional treatment can, however, take up to a year to complete. Veneers thus offer very quick results for slightly crooked teeth. In all cases, Veneers can be altered in colour so as to blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.

It is incredibly important to be aware of what foods you eat, as many may be causing tooth decay, gum disease and sensitivity in the mouths of many patients from South Dublin.
The Usual Suspects
Several popular drinks, such as tea and coffee, are particularly common offenders, with black tea being one especially nasty customer. Red wine and cola not only stain but also erode the enamel. Cola, when served chilled, also causes tooth enamel to become more vulnerable and thus susceptible to staining. Soy sauce not only contains powerful discolouring agents but also sticks to the teeth, allowing staining pigments to leech deeper into them. The herbs and spices used in most curries are powerful staining agents, as are sweets and berries. The list hardly stops here but, for the sake of brevity, I think I will.
So, what can one do about this? Well, drinking tea through a straw is one option, but what if the damage is already done? Superficial blemishes can be handled by specialist toothpaste or a hygiene appointment with your dentist, but deeper, embedded stains will require teeth whitening treatment. ‘Teeth whitening’ uses a peroxide-based bleaching gel which penetrates the tooth surface and cleans the teeth.
However, in very extreme cases, even teeth whitening might not be effective. In these circumstances, dental veneers are viable option. Veneers are thin shells of material that are bonded to the front of the teeth, the shade of which can be selected to give the impression of a pearly smile. Veneers come in two forms – porcelain and composite. If you are going for a full smile makeover, porcelain is the optimal choice, it being more durable. Porcelain veneers require a minor re-shaping of the mouth, however, so composite veneers are preferable if you only need a few teeth re-coloured and wish to retain more of your natural mouth structure.
People with heavily stained teeth, tooth chips and worn teeth can all benefit from the cosmetic enhancement of porcelain veneers.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are known as the ‘false nails’ of the cosmetic dentistry world, as they sit over the surface of a damaged or stained tooth masking any problems you may have. Made of the very finest porcelain, veneers mimic both the whiteness and natural translucency of a tooth, meaning that they appear completely natural within your mouth.
How are they fitted?
Most veneers treatments require 2-3 visits to assess your teeth, prep your smile and fit your veneers. The first appointment will involve a thorough check of your teeth and mouth to make certain that veneers are the best treatment for you. After this you will return to the clinic, where we will prepare your teeth for your new veneers by removing a small portion of the tooth surface, taking impressions of your teeth and fitting you with temporary veneers. These impressions, along with your ideal shape and colour preference, are sent to a specialist dental laboratory, where your new, beautiful smile will be created. On the third visit you return to the practice to have your personalised veneers fitted, using strong dental adhesive to securely bond your tooth and veneer together. Your new teeth will then be polished and buffed to ensure that they look natural, clean and healthy.
What are veneers able to treat?
Patients from Carrickmines may suffer from a range of tooth problems, but if they suffer with:
- Discoloured, deeply stained teeth.
- Chipped or cracked teeth that need cosmetic restoration.
- Teeth worn along the edges.
- Crooked teeth that require mild straightening.
- Small, yet noticeable tooth gaps between the teeth.
then they can receive the treatment and results they need with porcelain veneers.
Cosmetic surgery and celebrities has always gone hand-in-hand; from Jordan’s breast implants to magazines trying to spot which ageing actresses have had Anti wrinkle injections, both the stars themselves and their fans seem to be obsessed with cosmetic procedures. And now a new trend has developed among younger celebrities desperate to get the edge over their “Hello!” rivals; cosmetic dentistry.
The most common procedure, and one that is very easy to spot in before and after photos, is the fitting of veneers. These act like covers for your own natural teeth, giving you a perfectly straight and dazzling smile; the kind of smile that usually takes years of orthodontic work which is why celebrities with veneers are easy to spot.
Cheryl Cole, Victoria Beckham and her husband David and pretty much the entire cast of the TV show “The Only Way is Essex” have been seen sporting whiter-than-white smiles recently. And dental experts are sure that the quick and easy fix offered by veneers is the answer.
Yet while these celebrities will no doubt have paid top money for their new smiles, the results are not always a complete success. If the veneers are the wrong size or shape, or even too white, then the smile can easily end up looking fake and everyone can spot that you have had dental work done; whether you’re famous or not. David Beckham’s dental work has improved on his own natural smile, even to the extent of keeping his slightly misshapen canine teeth when they could easily have been covered with veneers or pushed into a more perfect position by using braces.
Compare that to some other celebs and their smile stands out for all the wrong reasons. With cosmetic dentistry at Dublin18 Dental Care in South Dublin, less is more and we will do all we can to ensure the results at the end of veneer treatment is all you ever hoped for and more.
Dental veneers from can instantly improve your appearance and give you the confidence you never thought you would have. Having dental veneers fitted at Dublin18 Dental Care is a quick and painless process, which can transform your smile in as little as two visits.
Dental veneers can conceal the flaws in your mouth, such a damaged or chipped teeth, crooked teeth, stained teeth, and can even fill in gaps between your teeth. Those problems that you thought could never be resolved can now be fixed, with dental veneers custom-made to suit your face and smile.
Are dental veneers for me?
You can choose from a range of cosmetic dental veneers in South Dublin, but the most commonly used material for veneers is porcelain. Porcelain veneers are strong and long-lasting and are the most natural looking of all the veneers.
Any other options?
The alternative to porcelain veneers are composite veneers, which are cheaper, but do no last as long. They also stain more easily than porcelain veneers, so although porcelain veneers are usually more expensive, you may save money is the long-run.
How are veneers fitted?
The veneers are fixed onto the surface of the teeth, like a false nail over a real nail, eliminating any flaws that may have previously existed. Having dental veneers is nothing to worry about and If you can have artificial eyelashes, a fake tan, fingernails and hair, then why not improve the one thing that will make you feel most confident – your smile.
