Veneers are thin coverings applied to your front teeth. The coverings will cover up any gaps and eliminate any visible imperfections. Veneers provide can hide chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth. This is a popular solution for many, and if you want to completely transform your smile, Veneers may be right for you.
We provide Veneers made from either resin composite or porcelain. Porcelain Veneers are stain-resistant and reflect light the same way that natural teeth do, so they look completely natural. We can help you decide which type of dental veneer is right for you

Dental veneers are a great way to fix front teeth that are discoloured, worn, chipped, misaligned, uneven, spaced, or have an odd shape.
Most of the time, getting a porcelain veneer takes more than one step. The first step is to see a prosthodontist for a consultation. At this appointment, you can talk about your goals and worries, and a prosthodontist will tell you how veneers will help you. There may be a need for X-rays or moulds of your teeth. Step two is to get the tooth ready for the veneer. A little bit of the tooth is taken away, and an impression is made. The dentist will then put temporary veneers on the teeth. The temporary veneers are taken off at the next appointment, and the final veneer is bonded to your tooth.
For veneers made from tooth-colored filling material, or composite bonding, the prosthodontist will remove a small quantity of tooth structure and bond filling material to your teeth during a single appointment. This kind of veneer doesn’t last as long as a porcelain veneer and doesn’t resist stains as well.
When veneers are made, very little of the tooth structure needs to be taken away, so the most amount of tooth structure is kept. Dental veneers can make your teeth look better, and they are good for your gums. You can choose the colour, and if you get porcelain veneers, they won’t get stained.
A dental veneer usually lasts between 5 and 10 years. They don’t need any special care besides brushing, flossing, and going to the prosthodontist regularly. If you take good care of them, they will last a lot longer. Cleanings by a professional every six months and exams once a year are highly recommended.
