Dental veneers
in Maidenhead

A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. They are custom-made to the contour of your teeth and are bonded to the tooth's original enamel during a series of in-office procedures. At A J R Crosbie & Associates, we offer veneers and a range of other cosmetic dental treatments. Get in touch with our team to book an appointment.

Why are veneers used in dentistry?

Veneers are a less intrusive option than crowns or braces. According to the British Dental Health Foundation, veneers can be used to close gaps or correct small misalignments. Patients also choose veneers as a cosmetic solution to enhance the brightness of their teeth and to straighten their smile, as well as correcting issues like discolouration, fractures or chips. Based in Maidenhead, we serve customers across High Wycombe and surrounding areas.

Porcelain veneers

The most commonly used material for veneers is the conventional porcelain veneer and composite resin veneers. Porcelain veneers are preferable for correcting issues of shape or colour and can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years, so it's important to know they will need to be replaced eventually.

We also provide high-quality natural-looking crowns and bridges to restore and replace missing teeth.

Placing veneers

The typical process takes one to two appointments. If the veneer is prefabricated, it usually takes one appointment and if the laboratory is creating the veneer it takes two appointments. We will focus on highlighting placement of the porcelain veneer created by the laboratory:

  • The dentist will clean the tooth and determine the correct shade for the veneer. The dentist will remove a very small amount of the enamel of the tooth to provide room to place the veneer on the tooth

  • An impression of the tooth will be made for the laboratory and a temporary veneer will be placed on the tooth. After the laboratory has delivered the porcelain veneer to your dentist, the temporary veneer is removed, and the tooth is cleaned with pumice and water. The veneer is then etched, rinsed thoroughly with water and air dried. The adhesive is placed on the preparation and then the cement and the veneer is placed for exact fit and contour

  • The veneer is then light cured for 60 seconds on all surfaces to attach it to the tooth structure

  • Your dentist will remove any excess material and polish the margins of the veneer

Many dentists will schedule a follow-up visit to check for comfort; a comfortable veneer will be a long-lasting veneer.

Care for veneers

We suggest brushing and flossing just as you would your regular teeth. Proper daily brushing, and use of non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste. Consider limiting coffee and other stain-inducing foods.


Keep in mind that veneers will need to be replaced at some point; no matter how well you take care of them. But proper oral hygiene will help them last as long as possible.


If you're deciding on veneers, consult with your dentist and be sure you understand every part of the process and cost. A beautiful smile feels great and can increase both your confidence and well-being.
