What is a dental veneer?

Anita to answer questions sent on 4th May.

Veneers are carefully crafted custom made facings that are permanently bonded to the front of your teeth to correct issues such as stained, chipped, worn, gapped or crooked teeth.  They are used to close gaps and spaces, lengthen short looking teeth or teeth that have been worn down, correct minor crowding or rotations in your smile or as part of a complete smile transformation.

What are veneers made of?

Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or composite resin enhancing their colour and shape while providing an effective solution to these problems.  This is a great method for those who want a perfect smile in a matter of weeks.

Porcelain Veneers

Composite Veneers

The advantages of Composite resin veneers are that they can be completed in only one visit.  Composite Veneers are also cheaper than Porcelain Veneers.  However, Composite Resin Veneers do stain and lose their shine with time requiring polishing and eventually more frequent replacements than Porcelain Veneers.

How is a dental veneer fitted?

Your teeth are meticulously prepared removing a very thin outer layer of the tooth (about 0.33mm). The veneer is precisely fitted resulting in a very natural restoration with a seamless transition to the gum line.
