A Dental Veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth. Dental veneers are adhesively bonded to the surface of a tooth to cover gaps and chips to improve the colour of the tooth.
There are two types of material:
- Porcelain dental veneers are custom-made shells to cover the front surface of teeth and improve your appearance. These Dental veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their colour, shape, size or length. Your dentist will remove 0.5mm of enamel from the tooth surface and then take an impression of your tooth. This model is sent to a dental laboratory. Dental Veneers usually return from the laboratory the following week. Veneers are bonded to your tooth structure, strengthening your teeth.
Benefits of Veneers
If your teeth are stained, chipped, or just simply worn, Veneers are the perfect solution for you to brighten your smile and reshape your teeth. With excessive staining, Veneers can also cover the discolouration. Veneers have many benefits some of which include:
Durability and Strength
They are made from a strong and durable material. Veneers are long-lasting and can hold up to years of chewing and biting. We use only the best materials and the safest techniques so you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest quality treatment.
The results are Natural Looking
The Veneers are specially made to match your own natural tooth colour. They also greatly enhance the appearance of your smile.
The solution is Long-Lasting
With proper upkeep, your veneers can last from 10 to 15 years. You can ensure that your veneers last this length of time by brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing in the evening, and visit your dentist for a checkup regularly.
Unlike natural teeth, veneers are resistant to staining. You can enjoy your coffee or tea without staining your pearly whites.
There is no Recovery Time
After the placement procedure is completed, patients can immediately carry on with normal everyday activities. Your teeth will also remain clean looking and white throughout the day.
They are customised for your smile
Impressions of your teeth are sent to a laboratory, so the veneers are therefore hand-crafted and customised to fit your own teeth. Patients can also return to normal dietary habits. It would nearly be impossible to tell the difference between a natural tooth and a veneer as they are designed to match your natural teeth.
