Designing your dream smile – The dental veneers experience

Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment with the main aim of creating your perfect dream smile. The veneer process is very interactive allowing the patients to have a lot of input in how they would like their smile to look like.

The dental veneers experience can be broken down into 4 main steps:

  • Impressions – Diagnostic wax-up (on a model)
  • Trial Smile
  • Prototype
  • Permanent fit


Impressions of your teeth will be taken, which will then be used to make a diagnostic wax up of how your smile will potentially look.

Trial Smile

Once the patient is very happy with how the wax model looks like we will then make a trial smile which allows the patient to “trial” what their smile could potentially look like, with a set of temporary veneers.

Any changes the patient would like to make before the final veneers are made can easily be arranged.


After the trial smile stage and all the alterations (if any) have been made to the trial veneers, the patient will be able to wear the temporary trial veneers as a prototype to ensure they are 100% happy with how their smile could look like.

This prototype phase allows the patient sufficient time to trial the veneers before they are permanently bonded to the surfaces of their teeth.

Permanent Fit

Once the patient is happy with their veneers, we will remove the temporary veneers and we will make an exact replica for the final veneers that are permanent (some veneer treatments can be reversible if needed.
