What are veneers?

Veneers are a restorative dental treatment used to cover chipped or stained teeth and even hide gaps. They’re made from either composite material or porcelain, and address several dental issues, including:

  • Worn down teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Irregularly shaped or uneven teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Composite veneers

If it’s only minor chips, cracks or discolouration that needs addressing, then the material we use for fillings (composite) may be all that’s required.

Porcelain veneers

This treatment involves bonding a slender porcelain coating to the front surface of the tooth. These coatings are strong, durable, resistant to stains and natural-looking. Two appointments are needed for this process as the porcelain shells are custom made in a lab.

If you’re not sure which type of veneer is most appropriate for you, fear not; we’ll guide with the right advice every step of the way.

How are porcelain veneers applied?

Preparation

First, we reshape the tooth equal to the thickness of the porcelain veneer. An impression is then taken of the tooth and sent to a specialised lab where the veneer is made. Until it’s ready, we fix a temporary veneer in place.

Bonding

Before we fix the veneer in place, we check it for fit and colour. Some trimming may be required for a perfect fit. We then prepare the cement that will bond the veneer to the tooth, shading it so it matches the natural colour of your teeth.

How long do veneers last?

Generally, veneers last for around 10 years, though potentially longer. As we often say, it comes down to your dental hygiene. Brushing, flossing and rinsing must be habitual for you, and we also recommend twice yearly check-ups with your dentist to ensure optimum dental health.
