Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers is a layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth’s surface from damage, it fits like a false fingernail fits over a nail.

There are two main types of material used to fabricate a Dental Veneerscomposite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dentist  and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. While porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.

How long will a veneer last?

Today, with improved cements and bonding agents, they typically last 10–30 years. They may have to be replaced in this time due to cracking, leaking, chipping, discoloration, decay, shrinkage of the gum line and damage from injury or tooth grinding.

More about Dental Veneers

Veneers are an important tool for the cosmetic dentist. A dentist may use one veneer to restore a single tooth that may have been fractured or discolored, or multiple teeth. Many people have small teeth resulting in spaces that may not be easily closed by orthodontics. Some people have worn away the edges of their teeth resulting in a prematurely aged appearance, while others may have malpositioned teeth that appear crooked. Multiple Dental Veneers can close these spaces, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear, fill the black triangles between teeth caused by gum recession, provide a uniform color, shape, and symmetry, and make the teeth appear straight.

When would I need a Dental Veneers?

Dental Veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten the front teeth.

What are the advantages of Dental Veneers?

Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of veneers don’t need any preparation at all.

How long does it take?

A Dental Veneer takes at least two visits: the first to prepare the tooth and to match the shade, and the second to fit it. Before bonding it in place. Bonding a Dental Veneer in place is done with a special adhesive, which holds it firmly on the tooth.

What happens after the Dental Veneers is fitted?

Only minor adjustments can be made to the veneer after it is fitted. It is usually best to wait a little while to get used to it before any changes are made. Your dentist will probably want to check and polish it a week or so after it is fitted, and make sure that you are happy with it.
