Our dentists use porcelain dental veneers to help improve the shape and colour of your individual teeth, and your overall smile.
A dental veneer is a custom-made piece of tooth-shaped porcelain that your dentist bonds to the front of your teeth. Veeners can help to restore or camouflage damaged, discoloured, poorly shaped, or misaligned teeth.
Your dentist will first take an impression of your teeth which will be used to create custom veneers just for you.
Once the veneers are made, your dentist will bond them right to your natural teeth to restore your smile.
Dental veneers can make cosmetic improvements to the appearance of your teeth, and they may also strengthen your teeth. They can be used to repair and hide chips, cracks and discolouration, and even reduce gaps and lengthen teeth that are too short.
Dental veneers are made to imitate the natural translucency of your tooth enamel, so they will look and feel just like natural teeth.
Unlike dental crowns, dental veneers require minimal tooth structure to be removed during the process, and are a less intrusive restorative option.
With good care, porcelain veneers can last a very long time, sometimes 20 years or more. Each person is different, so the length of time that a veneer can last may vary.
