Dental veneers are a versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment that significantly improves the appearance of unsightly teeth.
Veneers are coverings that are applied to the front of teeth to conceal dental flaws. They look and feel like natural teeth.
Treatment entails minimal preparation of teeth and it restores symmetry and balance to your smile.
Benefits of veneers
Benefits of veneers include:
Veneers address issues such as:
You also get a choice of treatment options with veneers, and the two main types are made from either porcelain or composite resin.
Porcelain dental veneers are tooth-coloured, ultra-thin shells that enhance tooth alignment, shape, size, length and colour.
Treatment usually takes a couple of visits to your dentist. The procedure is minimally invasive, requiring little or no anaesthetic. A small amount of enamel is trimmed from the surface of the tooth to make room for the veneer.
Porcelain veneers look natural because they’re:
Porcelain veneers resist staining a lot better than enamel – they don’t absorb the colours of the foods and drinks you consume.
Composite veneers provide a less costly alternative to porcelain veneers and still create attractive, natural smiles.
Made from composite resin instead of porcelain, composite veneers can last for several years, and the procedure is faster and simpler than getting porcelain veneers – the resin is applied directly to the surface of a tooth in a single appointment.
Composite veneers are often used in cases of:
Unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneer treatment is reversible, which makes it a good choice if you’re unsure about committing to permanently changing the appearance of your teeth.
On the downside, composite veneers can be more prone to staining and chipping than their porcelain counterparts. And composite veneers can’t address problems such as larger gaps between teeth, very short teeth, or teeth that have lost a lot of structure.
Porcelain veneers can give you a dramatic smile makeover, while composite veneers provide a more affordable option to fix less severe aesthetic issues.
