Veneers are used to improve the overall appearance of teeth by securing a very thin layer of tooth-coloured material over the front of natural teeth.

Porcelain is the most common material used because it looks the most natural and is stain-resistant, but they can also be made from composite resin.

Veneers are a popular and permanent solution for patients with chipped, discoloured, or misshapen teeth. They can also be used to cover a gap between teeth.

Am I a good candidate for veneers?

Veneers are a permanent solution that instantly transforms your smile. Although your dentist removes as little enamel as possible, the process cannot be undone. Your teeth and gums must be healthy, and disease or decay must be treated before your veneers are placed.

You might be a good candidate for veneers if:

  • You have minor cosmetic imperfections in the structure of your teeth like chips, cracks or misshapen teeth.
  • You have severely stained teeth including intrinsic discolouration
  • You have sufficient tooth enamel so the veneers can bond to your tooth structure properly.
  • You have relatively straight teeth. Veneers can correct mildly crooked teeth, but a severe misalignment can put pressure on your teeth and cause the veneer to crack.
  • A stained tooth that is chipped and mildly crooked can be easily corrected with a veneer.
  • You do not clench or grind your teeth because the veneers can chip or break.
  • You do not habitually chew ice or your fingernails or use your teeth as tools.
  • You practise good oral hygiene. Veneers are placed on the surface of your natural teeth, so it is important for you to keep up with regular brushing, flossing and bi-annual dental check-ups.

How long does the process take?

Fitting veneers correctly will require several visits. After the initial consultation, veneers will be customised to fit your teeth. Then another appointment will be needed to permanently attach the veneers.
