Cosmetic Dental Treatments: Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can be used to solve a variety of problems with a patient’s teeth, including cracks, chips and discolouration. Veneers can also be used to improve the appearance of healthy teeth, by improving the size, shape, rotation or spacing of the teeth.

The veneer itself is a custom made porcelain shell that fits over the surface of each tooth and is bonded in place. Teeth treated with veneers look and feel, just like natural teeth and are cared for the same way with regular brushing and flossing.

How Dental Veneers Work

In order to bond the veneer to the tooth a small amount of the natural tooth’s surface is removed, usually less than a millimetre. This is required so that the veneer fits naturally in the mouth and doesn’t add any extra bulk to the teeth.

The veneer is then permanently bonded to the surface of the tooth, using a special light sensitive resin. The custom made veneer will seamlessly match the patient’s natural tooth shape and colour, while correcting any flaws. The results are a beautiful Hollywood smile, without any loss of function.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

The application of veneers requires only minimal alteration to the patient’s natural teeth and create a durable and lasting surface that is stain resistant. Veneers are a versatile solution to an array of cosmetic dental problems, correcting colour, shape, gaps, as well as damaged teeth. Each veneer is custom made to fit the patient’s mouth and blend with their natural teeth, for a natural, healthy looking smile.
