Porcelain Veneers and Crowns

Porcelain Veneers

In our pursuit of simulating natural beauty, porcelain veneers offer a wonderful tool for creating a natural and beautiful look in any smile.

As with any dental procedure it takes a very skilled, artistic dentist to create beauty in a natural aesthetic way. Using porcelain veneers we are able to accomplish beautiful smiles unique to each and every individual.

Veneers are thin layers of porcelain, which are custom-made to adhere to the front of natural teeth, thus enhancing the appearance of the smile. Skillfully designed veneers can remove many types of compromises in the smile, including misalignment, spaces, dark colours, chipped or worn teeth and improper length.

Porcelain Crowns and Onlays

While the 'main players', i.e. the front teeth in the smile are important, we recognize the importance of the 'supporting cast', i.e. the teeth in the back of the mouth. Many patients are interested in upgrading old crowns or metal fillings in order to improve both the aesthetics and health of their smile.

Metal fillings and older styles of dental crowns may present an unpleasant oral appearance. Porcelain crowns and onlays offer us the ability to protect teeth effectively without detracting from the aesthetic appeal of a smile.

Large restorations which involve the structure of the tooth will be custom-made by my technicians with attention to detail and regard to both function and aesthetics. A two-step process begins with preparation of the tooth, including removal of any old restoration and hidden decay underneath. A temporary restoration is placed as an interim while the crown or onlay is being designed. The second visit, a few weeks later, involves bonding the restoration in place and fine-tuning the bite. The final result is something that looks and feels like your natural tooth.

Patient Testimonial: I got four porcelain veneers from Dr. Brennan and all I can say is that it completely transformed my teeth and smile.

When he gave me the before and after photographs when treatment was completed I found it hard to believe the difference. Dr. Brennan and his extremely friendly staff did a wonderful job and I couldn't be happier with my new teeth.

Thank you very much.

Patient Testimonial: I have recently undergone significant dental work under Dr. Brennan and I cannot recommend him highly enough for his expertise, skill and professionalism. The final aesthetic result has far surpassed my original expectations due to his talent and exceptional attention to detail. My dental history over the past twenty years has been littered with bad experiences and poor dentistry, which leaves me in aninformed position to realize an outstanding dentist when I meet one. Dr Brennan is such a dentist and I trust him implicitly with my teeth. I now have the perfect smile following my treatment, with many friends and family commenting on how well I look without being quite able to pinpoint the exact change. This is what really makes Dr. Brennan stand out from other dentists – the subtle excellence he achieves in his dental work imitates natural, albeitflawless, teeth.

I am so grateful to Dr Brennan for giving me the perfect smile and I would (and do) recommend him wholeheartedly.

Patient Testimonial: My time with Dr. Máirtín Brennan and his amazing team over the past year was a positive one from start to finish. Mine was a somewhat complicated case of severe tetracycline (antibiotic) staining which had all but destroyed my confidence. At my initial consultation, Dr. Brennan was very informative about the procedures to follow, and he not only welcomes, but encourages input from his patients throughout the treatment process. My final results have far exceeded my expectations and are testament to his exceptional skill, he is a true artist and a genuinely lovely person to boot. I never believed it possible that I would be complimented on my teeth by total strangers and can now smile without the embarrassment that had become second nature to me. I cannot recommend the Belgrave Dental Clinic highly enough, so if you are visiting this page whilst searching for a practice to trust with your treatment then in my opinion you have found it, and I must have researched the lot, both here and abroad, over the past few years.

I feel blessed to have found you Dr. Brennan, you have changed my future. Thank you so much!

Patient Testimonial: I received treatment for eight upper porcelain veneer crowns. My treatment was going to be a challenge for numerous reasons. I was very impressed with Dr Máirtín Brennan’s honesty and the time and effort he took with me to ensure that he was well informed of my expectations and how he could then fulfil my needs. I felt he treated me as a whole unique special case and I did not feel that I was just another person to be treated and I therefore trusted him completely. This was so important to me before I could proceed. I was further impressed by Dr Brennan in that he allowed me to include and seek my husband’s opinion as part of the treatment process. The ability to listen, understand and managing my expectations I felt is one of Dr Brennan’s special talents. His work was intense and skilled and the overall result in my opinion is much more than I had ever hoped for.

Dr Brennan and his team Sara and Carol were so good and kind to me, so I want to say a big “Thank You” to all of them. 

To sum up I feel lucky to have been introduced to such a professional, talented and experienced dentist who achieved for me such a fantastic result in a very specialised and complex field of dentistry.
