Tooth Veneers

‘Veneers’, ‘Bonding’ or ‘Facings’ are used to change the shape, colour and overall appearance of your teeth. Veneers are a good option for patients who present with badly stained or crooked teeth.

There are two types of veneers:

  1. Composite Veneers
  2. Porcelain Veneers

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are bonded directly to your teeth, and can usually be completed in one visit.

The process involves minimal preparation of your teeth, the ‘building up’ process is completed in sections so you can view the progress section by section.

The dentist uses a composite material (tooth coloured resin), to ‘bond’ to your natural teeth. The shape and shade can be altered to your liking during the process.

Composite veneers can be a good alternative to more expensive treatments such as ‘banding’ or orthodontic braces.

Composite veneers are simple to re-polish and replace if they eventually discolour.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin (usually about 0.5mm thick) pieces of porcelain, which are bonded to the front surface of the teeth.

Porcelain is a very hard, wear resistant material that will keep its appearance far longer than composite veneers.

The process involves trimming the outside of your teeth, taking a specialised impression, and having the dental technician create the veneers in the dental laboratory.

The porcelain veneers are then glued into place permanently. The process usually takes two appointments.

Porcelain veneers very durable, and are a good option for those wanting to change the appearance and colour of their teeth.

Very white shades of porcelain veneers can be created and are a good option for those whom traditional tooth whitening bleaching was ineffective.
