Something You Need to Know About Veneers

Most patients who choose to have veneers are satisfied with the results they get. Often because they have a very rapid transformation to the look of their smile, giving them a new burst of confidence in their appearance.

Whatever Your Age. It is not too late to have a beautiful smile

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth. Veneers can be made by a dental technician, usually in a dental lab, working from a model provided by your dentist.

Dental veneers can also be made in the clinic using a CEREC machine.

Placing veneers is usually an irreversible process, because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your tooth to accommodate the shell. Your dentist may recommend that you avoid some foods and beverages that may stain or discolour your veneers such as coffee, tea or red wine. Sometimes a veneer might chip or fracture.
