Smile makeovers

Looking for a smile makeover in Leeds? Porcelain veneers could be the answer.

Smile perfect, with porcelain veneers

If you don’t need major dental work (such as orthodontics or implants) but your front teeth don’t look how you’d like them to, porcelain veneers could be your solution. Created from eggshell-thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to your existing teeth, veneers conceal a multitude of dental issues, including crooked, misaligned, chipped, gappy or permanently discoloured teeth.

They’re the go-to treatment for the perfectly straight white smiles you see on celebrities and film stars – and luckily for patients in LS18, veneers are a lot more accessible than they used to be. If you’re interested in getting veneers, come to Horsforth Dental for an initial consultation.


What else could a smile makeover include?

If you know you’re unhappy with your smile, but you’re not sure where to start, come into Horsforth Dental for an informal smile makeover consultation. We’ll listen to your concerns and look at the areas you’d like to improve – such as filling gaps, straightening teeth or whitening. Then we’ll put together a tailored plan for transforming your smile, taking into account your goals and budget. Depending on your requirements, this could include one or a number of the following:


Getting rid of gum disease and establishing a robust hygiene routine – often the first step on the path to the smile you’ve always wanted.

Teeth whitening

Professional, prescription-only bleaching to create an even, white smile.


Adult braces that work in weeks, not years, and don’t impact on your lifestyle.

Inlays, onlays, bonding

Minimally invasive techniques for getting the ideal finish.

Dental implants

Replacing missing teeth permanently with natural looking results.

Crowns and bridges

Custom-made to restore full function, with beautiful aesthetics.


Ultra-thin porcelain layers, bonded to your natural teeth.


How do veneers work?

Because veneers sit over the top of your teeth, the dentist will need to file away a layer of enamel proportionate to the thickness of the veneers. This is usually carried out under a local anaesthetic. When your bespoke veneers are ready, the dentist will bond them in place using a special curing light, and finish by fine-tuning their look and shape manually.

Do veneers hurt?

No! Sometimes we might use a local anaesthetic, but it’s not always necessary and applying veneers generally involves minimal discomfort. Your cosmetic dentist will discuss your treatment in depth so you know exactly what to expect.

How long do veneers last?

With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years.
