Porcelain veneers are a quick, simple and incredibly effective way to enhance the appearance of chipped, broken, misaligned and worn teeth by adding uniform shape, colour and symmetry to your smile.
Made from wafer thin slices of porcelain, each veneer is custom-made to provide a strong, stain-resistant and natural look to the affected tooth. They are permanently bonded to the front of your tooth in the same way a false nail fits over a natural fingernail and can be applied to one tooth or many. It’s the perfect way to transform your smile, quickly and beautifully.
I couldn't recommend this practice highly enough, especially if you are a nervous patient or have had a negative experience elsewhere, their approach is amazing!
Veneers are a good match for just about anyone. However, there can be exceptions. If we find any untreated tooth decay, gum disease, acid erosion, or you grind your teeth, veneers may not right for you. Your dentist will happily take the time to discuss all your restorative options.
When veneers are applied properly and professionally, and well cared for by you through good oral hygiene and diet, there’s no reason why your new veneer can’t last a lifetime.
Keep in mind that if you neglect your oral health and you consume lots of sweets, fizzy drinks or other sugary treats, your tooth can still decay and the veneer may need to be replaced.
Generally speaking, you won’t feel a thing. However, a handful of people may experience some mild sensitivity during the application process or for a short time after. But any discomfort should go away on its own in a few days.
