Hollywood Smile with Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells of tooth-colored material that is aesthetically bonded to the frontal surface of your teeth. Created from porcelain or resin composite material, these are custom made and aligned with the rest of your teeth for that natural look.
Our dentist will help you choose based on dental structure, your preferences and of course your budget.

Why should I consider veneers?
Simply because veneers are the easiest way to drastically change your teeth’s appearance. The procedure is quick, non-invasive and you will be surprised with the transformation of your smile.
- Stained or discolored teeth? Veneers will make them look white.
- Cracked or chipped teeth? Veneers will make them look perfect.
- Have gaps or slightly misaligned teeth? Leave it to the Veneers to effectively cover these flaws.
However, it must be noted that the placement of dental veneers does not absolve you from maintaining oral hygiene of your teeth. The veneers and teeth need the same level of care and hygiene or could lead to inflammation of gums or related ailments.
What kind of Veneers should I be looking for?
Whilst aesthetic preferences differ from person to person, veneers may be distinguished by the material used. Porcelain and Composite are the 2 relatively prominent materials used and we will explain the pros and cons of each of these.
- Retain the shine and color for a longer period of time as they are resistant to stains.
- Longer lasting (10 to 15 years)
- Fewer chances of breaking as porcelain is a hard material
- In case of a fracture, most often these need to be replaced – not repaired
- More expensive than Composite (well- that’s what it is normally)
- In case of breakage, these can be reconstructed in the clinic.
- Less expensive than Porcelain
- In relative terms, these lose shine and color with time
- Need more maintenance
- Lifespan of 5 years
What are the timelines for the placement of Veneers?
Composite veneers are quicker, and placement can be completed in a single sitting at the clinic.
For porcelain veneers, impressions need to be taken for the veneers to be fabricated in the laboratory. They are then cemented to the patient’s tooth. At Apex, we largely use the commercial brand e max which is known to be thin yet incredibly resistant to fracture.
Is there any reason I won’t be able to get Veneers?
1. Risk of breakage either due to severe malposition or malocclusions. The dentist would then recommend Orthodontic treatment as a precursor.
2. Bruxism – severe teeth grinding or jaw clenching. The dentist would be able to examine and recommend an alternate resolution.

I have meant to write this review for a couple of months now... I'll try and break it down as quick and simple as possible.. giving what you need/may want to know.... English guy been in region 8 years. Honesty (as you can probably see.. if pic uploaded) not a regular at dentist for some years (what you cant see is I had 4 large silver fillings also on molars also & chipped teeth from rugby opening beer bottles etc.) Visited Dr. Arvind in regards some cosmetic dentistry and he basically told me he wouldn't consider doing anything cosmetic till he sorted any pressing medical issues I had, chips, sensitivity,fillings etc. (which I found quite reassuring to be fair) So I ended up having a few visits which left me at a point with all fillings and chips etc. sorted and also (kind off cosmetic) all silver fillings replaced with natural looking ones. During which I found Dr. Arvind amazing !!! Talked me through everything , did a countdown percentage wise on how far he was through each procedure and actually left me not dreading a next visit. Once this was all done we got round to talking (what I went in for in the first place and looking at aesthetics!) I had told him I didn't want to look fake/obvious ... Apparently the norm is 20-24 veneers... Dr. Arvind said he thought 8&6 would be enough... (immediately I thought well he isn't just chasing money!!!) I decided to go ahead and had temps done 6&4 (as the others would need no prep)... I returned saying I was actually happy with 6&4 .... Zero pressure ! My choice and he happy to oblige... I couldn't be happier with the results! (he did suggest as I'm going for lower number he can whiten the surrounding ones so they blend, I'm currently doing that now..(pic is from before whitening....which isn't too bad as I was encouraged to/wanted to go for a more natural shade) I could go into detail for ages ! I read a 1,000 reviews and agonized over every stage and decision.... but to cut a long story short ...(shorter than is already !) I never felt any pressure, I felt looked after at every stage and would 100% recommend Dr.Arvind for whatever you need. Final praise for all the team at Apex who were great at communicating very friendly and helpful with insurance/appointments etc etc.

Apex Dental practice is a wonderful facility. The welcoming, relaxed and friendly reception staff are merely the beginning of the journey into a pleasurable, professional and remarkable dental experience. I recently had my stained, uneven teeth transformed into the most beautiful smile I’ve ever worn. Dr. Arvind is an incredible craftsman with admirable skills in the application and workmanship of Veneers. He leaves no stone unturned in respect of the process from start to finish and his honesty and transparency in costing is clear and concise. In practice, he articulates each step perfectly. He is a friendly, gentle and pleasant man with an outstanding passion for his profession. I’m so pleased to have made the acquaintance of everyone involved in my treatment, including the dental nurses. Everyone is amazing. You can’t help but leave the clinic with a smile on your face, even better if it’s with a new one. Massive thanks to all at Apex Dental. I’m extremely grateful.
