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.
Most people would like to have a healthy, natural looking smile. A nice smile gives people the confidence they need in a society that is particularly image conscious. A popular cosmetic treatment we offer at Dublin18 is dental veneer treatment. Veneers are a covering over teeth that are damaged or discoloured and can also be used to help with the appearance of teeth that are not straight.
So if you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth perhaps veneers are a possible option for you. Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or other materials such as composite bonding that are incredibly strong and are custom made for each patient to help solve any issues they have with their teeth.
Variety of veneer treatments
At Dublin18 Dental Care there are a variety of different options to choose from aside from the traditional veneers when it comes to perfecting your smile.
Lumineers are stronger than your average veneer but are only 2 millimetres thick. They are made from extremely strong material which will look natural and aesthetically pleasing in the mouth.
Da Vinci Veneers
Da Vinci Veneers are made in California and are known to last considerably longer than their opponents in the market. These veneers are thinner than most other veneers so you may not even notice a change in your mouth other than seeing white, healthy looking teeth.
So if you’re looking to get the perfect smile in a discreet way, but aren’t quite sure which veneer is best for you and your smile, then make an appointment at Dublin18 Dental Care near Foxrock to arrange an appointment to discuss the matter further.
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.

There are many reasons why people might feel slightly self-conscious about their teeth, ranging from having missing teeth to discoloured teeth. However, it’s a shame not to be proud of your teeth – as the saying goes; the best thing you can wear is a smile! Dublin18 Dental Care can help you with treatments to make over your smile and help you feel more confident, and one of these is dental veneers.
What is a veneer?
Veneers are incredibly thin shells of tooth-coloured material which fit over your teeth to improve their appearance. After a mould is taken of your teeth, to ensure your veneers fit your mouth specifically, the veneers are created in a laboratory. These are then ‘cemented’ in place, and then treated with a special light in order to fix them onto your teeth. The comparison is often made to false fingernails. Veneers can be made of porcelain, ceramic or a composite material (this is used in a procedure called ‘composite bonding’). Porcelain is the most commonly-used material as it is easy to make it tooth-coloured, and it is very strong – with a good hygiene routine, porcelain veneers can last between five and ten years.
What how can veneers help my smile?
Veneers can help cover imperfections to render a more uniform, brilliant smile. Stained or discoloured teeth can be helped with veneers, while damaged teeth – for example, a tooth which has become chipped, can be covered with veneers too. This is particularly suitable if there are just one or two damaged teeth that need ‘repairing’. Equally, uneven gaps between teeth can be covered with veneers, to give a more uniform smile. Veneers are not usually an ideal solution for crooked teeth, but can give an ‘instant fix’ appearance for crooked teeth, unlike the longer process of orthodontics.
Dental veneers, sometimes called false nails for the mouth, are thin shells of tooth coloured material, which are attached to the teeth to cover up any aesthetic ailments a patient near Leopardstown may suffer from, such as: Broken, damaged, discoloured and, to an extent, crooked teeth. They can also help cover up tooth gaps. Veneers do come in a variety of types- here is a quick rundown of the popular varieties.
Porcelain or composite veneers?
At their most basic, veneers come in to two types: Porcelain and composite. Composite veneers are lower in price than porcelain, but are best for the treatment of small cracks or chips. They can also maintain are larger portion of the natural tooth. Porcelain veneers, in contrast, are stronger, with a more natural appearance and can last five to ten times longer than composite veneers, meaning porcelain veneers may be cheaper in the long run. During the procedure, a small part of your tooth will be removed. The amount removed will be equivalent in size to the thickness of the veneer being produced.
Lumineers are like standard dental veneers, but ultra thin and ultra strong. Their thickness is comparable to contact lenses. In contrast to standard veneers, very little of your natural tooth structure needs to be altered to accommodate them. As a result the procedure is often reversible, unlike with normal veneers. Lumineers are, unsurprisingly, more expensive than standard veneers as only one laboratory produces them.
Da Vinci veneers
Da Vinci veneers are one of the most trusted veneers brands and have been featured on ABC’s Extreme Makeover TV programme. Da Vinci veneers purport to be thinner, stronger and more resilient to staining than standard 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.
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.
