What are veneers?

Veneers are thin shells that are used to cover the front surface of teeth. They are an ideal solution for cosmetic concerns such as stained, crooked, chipped, gapped, or protruding teeth. Our bespoke dental veneers can improve your smile in a short amount of time.

Veneers can help:

– Improve the appearance of stained or discoloured teeth
– Correct crooked chipped, or gapped teeth
– Improve the look of misshapen or disproportionately small teeth
– Balance out your bite
– Give you a more youthful smile

We offer custom veneers that are designed to mimic the size, shape and colour of your teeth. Thanks to our state-of-the-art CEREC machine, veneers are strong and will not chip or stain easily.

Composite resin vs porcelain

Composite resin veneers are composed of a composite polymer resin paste that bonds to your teeth. Resin is very flexible and hardens like ceramic, containing a mixtures of quartz, silica, polymer and glass. Composite resin veneers are an easy restorative choice since they do not require much tooth preparation and can be bonded immediately.

Porcelain veneers are made of glass-like ceramic called feldspar, which is an extremely thin and translucent material. Both types of veneers are strong and may last for many years if properly maintained, but porcelain veneers are more resistant to staining and wear.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I suitable for veneers?

The best way to find out if you’re suitable for veneers is to book a consultation with our cosmetic dentist. During this appointment, we will assess your oral health and discuss your desired results. We will also take X-rays, photos, and scans of your teeth to help us develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.

How long do veneers last?

The lifespan of your dental veneers depends on the material they’re made of (porcelain or composite) and how well you take care of them. With proper care, they can last for many years. However, it’s important to note that veneers are not impervious to damage. They can chip or crack just like natural teeth, so it’s important to avoid chewing hard foods or biting your nails.

Are veneers painful?
The procedure to apply veneers is not painful. However, you may experience some discomfort during the preparation stage, when we remove a small amount of tooth enamel. We will numb your teeth before starting the procedure to help minimise any discomfort.
Can I replace my dental veneers?
Dental veneers can be replaced if they become damaged or if you’re not happy with the results. However, once your tooth enamel is removed, it cannot grow back. As such, you may need to have a dental crown placed over the tooth.
Are veneers susceptible to staining?
Both composite resin and porcelain veneers are susceptible to staining. However, ceramic veneers are less likely to stain than resin veneers. To help keep your veneers looking their best, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene habits and avoid foods or drinks that can cause staining. You should also visit our dental practice for regular cleanings and checkups.
Are veneers harmful to teeth?
Veneers, when applied by a dental professional, will not damage your teeth. However, it’s important to note that once your tooth enamel is removed, it cannot grow back. Without proper care, the teeth underneath your veneers may become decayed.
Do veneers straighten teeth?
Veneers do not straighten the natural tooth, but they can give the impression of straightness by utilising either porcelain or resin to cover it. If you want to achieve straighter teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners may be the right solution for you. Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.
