Veneers are cosmetic restorations added to the front surface of a tooth to correct discolouration, minor misalignment, chips or cracks. They are also used to close gaps between teeth and build up worn teeth to restore a more beautiful smile.
Veneers can be made from porcelain or composite. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of veneers:
Veneers will last about 10 years and possibly much longer. A visit to the dentist for a check-up and clean must be scheduled at least twice a year. Most importantly, only use your teeth for eating food, not chewing pens or other activities that will lead to damage.
If you are unhappy with the cosmetic appearance of your teeth as a result of chips, gaps or cracks then speak to our cosmetic dentists to find out which type of dental veneers may be the most suitable option for you.
