Veneers are a great way to easily change your smile. A veneer can be placed on a single tooth or multiple teeth to create a smile makeover.
Veneers can be made from resin or porcelain. They are used to fix such problems as worn teeth, chipped teeth, discoloured teeth, cracked teeth and uneven teeth.
Tooth or dental veneers differ to tooth crowns in that they only cover the front of the tooth.
Porcelain veneers are between 0.3mm and 0.5mm thick, but once permanently bonded to your teeth, are extremely strong. Their appearance is amazingly realistic with strength and durability that make your smile lasting and attractive. Their life span is approximately 10 – 15 years though this is variable and dependent on many factors. In particular, night time grinding is a major risk factor and a night guard should be worn to prevent chipping and fractures.
Costing less than crowns, veneers are a very popular solution for many people seeking that perfect smile.
