Are veneers right for your teeth?
Your perfect smile can do wonders for your self-image.
Smiling should be a happy, enjoyable experience. No one should be stressed or embarrassed by their smile. With veneers, hiding your smile can be a thing of the past. They can be the fast, painless answer to answer to unlocking your perfect smile.
What are veneers?
Veneers are wafer-thin shells that are cemented to the front of your teeth. Made from either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material, veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth.
They provide an immediate makeover to your smile, changing the size, shape, colour or position of your teeth while maintaining a natural look. Many dentists use the analogy that dental veneers are for your teeth what false fingernails are for your hands.
Why choose veneers?
Strong, relatively stain-resistant and long-lasting, veneers are a fantastic long-term solution to a number of cosmetic problems. Custom-made to your teeth, they hide a variety of problems, including:
Allowing you to achieve a brighter, whiter smile. Porcelain veneers are particularly resistant further staining.
Damaged, chipped or broken teeth:
Giving the appearance of full and heathy teeth. Small chips on a tooth can be quickly repaired with composite bonding veneers, while larger chips and damages can be covered with a veneer with the same characteristics and colour as your natural teeth.
Space, or gaps in teeth:
Allowing you to achieve a fuller, more even smile.
Giving the appearance of straighter teeth. Severely crooked teeth would need longer braces or Invisalign treatments to straighten the teeth.
The process of attaching veneers is quick, easy and does not require any anaesthesia. Veneers are also easy to care for and don’t impact on your everyday life. They can give you your perfect smile while letting you live your life as normal.
Veneers are the quick, easy and long-lasting answer to many cosmetic problems. Ultimately, your dentist will be able to discuss whether veneers are the perfect fit for you, depending on your unique needs.
