What are Veneers Used For?
Worn and discoloured teethOver time, your enamel (the thin, hard translucent substance covering your teeth) may become worn, dulled and discoloured. This may be natural or result from a genetic predisposition, but it often results from smoking, consuming soft drinks, tea or coffee, or using certain medications.
Chips and cracksTeeth naturally wear down as people age. Aged teeth are more likely to have chips, cracks or an uneven appearance.
Gaps in teethYour genetics may leave you with unwanted spacing between your teeth, which may widen further with age.
Uneven teethUneven teeth can be a result of tooth grinding or general wear and tear.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?
There are a number of benefits of having dental veneers placed, as they can conceal a wide range of imperfections. Some of the most commonly treated cosmetic issues include broken and chipped teeth; severe discolouration; misshapen teeth; and wide gaps.
Besides the fact that dental veneers can greatly improve the appearance of one’s smile, another benefit of the treatment is the fact that the restorations can last for more than ten years. This makes them a long-term solution to a broad range of issues.

What Does the Process Involve?
If you are considering dental veneers, we recommend that you come in and see us for a personal consultation. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your concerns and expectations, and your dentist will advise you on the best course of treatment based on your unique needs. Your dentist will evaluate your teeth and let you know how many veneers are recommended.
In some cases, it is necessary to have x-rays taken before you have veneers placed. X-rays allow your dentist to identify any potential issues, such as tooth decay and gum disease. If any of these issues are detected, you will need to have them resolved before going ahead with the placement of veneers.
When you are ready for your veneers, your dentist will grind off some of your tooth and take an impression, which will be used to fabricate your customised veneers. Once the veneers have been made, your dentist will check that the shape, colour and size fit your mouth correctly.
How Are Dental Veneers Placed?
Before placing your veneers, your dentist will clean your teeth in order to ensure that no bacteria will be trapped between the surface of the teeth and the restoration. A special grinding tool will then be used to form a rough texture on each tooth, and the veneers will be placed with a dental cement. An ultraviolet light is used to harden the dental cement and secure the veneers in place.
You should be able to eat and drink as usual once your dental veneers have been placed. With the proper care, you can expect your veneers to last between 10 and 15 years. In order to enhance the longevity of your dental veneers, we recommend that you avoid chewing on particularly hard items, such as ice. Try and avoid chewing with your front teeth where possible and chop up hard foods into manageable sizes. If you play sports, it is important that you wear a custom-made mouthguard in order to protect your dental veneers from potential damage and injury.
How Long Can Porcelain Veneers Last?
Veneers can last anything from 12 years to 25 years depending on how well they were maintained. If you follow a good dental health regimen, visit your dentist regularly and protect your teeth with mouth guards, veneers can last a very long time. Just like real teeth, maintenance is everything.
Are porcelain veneers removable?
No, professional porcelain or composite veneers are not removable. Once veneers are bonded to the top of your teeth, they can’t be removed, and doing so would do significant damage to your actual teeth. You can however get temporary veneers which are used by dentist to cover your teeth while they prepare your final set of custom made veneers. Clip on veneers also exist. These are also a great option for seeing if you want to get veneers more permanently before you make your final decision. Talk to a dental professional to decide the right option for you.
Are veneers dental implants?
No, dental implants and veneers are two very different dental solutions and devices that serve different purposes. Dental implants are small metal rods that are placed in your gums in order to hold dentures or replacement teeth. They are implanted foundation for artificial teeth to be placed on. Veneers are tooth-shaped shells that bonded to the top of teeth change their shape, length, colour and size. Veneers serve more of an aesthetic purpose, while implants are more functional and structural. To know what you need, talk to your dentist.
