Cosmetic Crowns/Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight alterations or changes to the tooth size, shape, position or colour.

FAQs

When are veneers used?
Porcelain veneers are a excellent in the following situations:
  • Gapped or Crooked teeth
  • Heavily Stained or discoloured teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
Crooked teeth and other aesthetic dental issues are normally corrected using orthodontics (braces), but your dentist may recommend veneers to cover stained enamel and minor spacing problems.

Are veneers painful to have?
No. In most cases, placing veneers is such a conservative process. We do not need to alter your natural tooth much at all (sometimes not at all), and often does not require any anaesthetic.

How long to veneers last?
If taken care of with good oral hygiene and regular dental check ups and hygienist visits, porcelain veneers should last between 10-15 years.
