Dental Veneers

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are custom fabricated facings bonded onto the external surfaces of teeth and may be able to help correct a wide range of cosmetic issues, including:
 

  • Yellow or dark teeth
  • Crooked or uneven teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipping or worn teeth
  • Severe stains or discolouration
  • Rough surfaces or uneven colouration between fillings and teeth
Dental veneers are one of the many options that can be used to improve the appearance of your teeth. Sometimes, fixed braces or Invisalign treatment may be necessary to improve the alignment of your teeth prior to dental veneers.

Dental veneers can be made singularly to correct an individual tooth, or as a set to provide a beautiful smile makeover.

Types of Veneers

Two of the most common types of veneers include those made from either composite resin or porcelain. When teeth are weakened by decay, large fillings or if you have a heavy bite, veneers may not be a suitable option. In these cases, crowns are a more viable alternative. At your consultation visit, we will help you understand the pros and cons of each option, and discuss which may be best suited to your goals and needs.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain is a common material used for veneers. These veneers can be customized to match the natural colour of your teeth. The porcelain surfaces are glazed to give it a long-lasting glossy appearance.

This procedure typically takes at least two visits to complete.

Resin Based Composite Veneers

Composite resin veneers may be a more affordable option that often requires less enamel removal for fitting. Composite may also be easier to replace or repair if it becomes damaged or broken. However, composite resins are not glazed, so the surfaces may deteriorate and collect stains over time.

This procedure can often be completed in one visit, depending on complexity.
