Veeners

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth to improve the overall appearance of teeth. They are made of either thin plastic resin or porcelain and can be placed to:

correct poorly formed or mildly mal-positioned teeth

mask internal stains

  • Crooked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Spaced teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • A braces alternative

restore partially broken-down teeth

Tooth preparation is minimal and confined to the enamel structure. The veneer is bonded to the tooth structure with tooth-coloured resin cement. Several visits are necessary to complete treatment.

Patients should be aware that this is usually an irreversible process because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.

Pros and Cons of Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers offer the following advantages:
  • Provide a natural looking appearance
  • Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well
  • Porcelain veneers are stain resistant
  • Veneers don’t require extensive shaping procedures
  • The color of veneers can improve upon that of dark teeth
The disadvantages to dental veneers:
  • Veneers are permanent
  • Veneers cost more than composite resin bonding
  • Veneers may not repairable should they become damaged
  • They may temporarily cause your teeth to become more sensitive because of the removal of enamel
