What are the benefits of Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers can help improve your smile in many scenarios. While their primary purpose is to improve the look of your smile, they can be used to fix chipped or broken teeth or in place of minor orthodontic work. Typically, we can use dental veneers for the following:

  • Permanent Discolouration: Teeth whitening can only get you so far! In many cases, your teeth may be permanently discoloured and cannot be whitened. Additionally, if you have any fillings visible from the front side of your teeth, they may not match your natural tooth or will discolour differently over time. Veneers can be used to completely change the shade of your teeth and look completely natural!

  • Change the shape of your teeth: Whether you have a shorter tooth or teeth that are a little uneven or irregularly shaped, veneers can be placed to give you a more uniform, fuller smile.

  • Minor teeth alignment: If your teeth are slightly out of alignment but you do not want to get braces/clear aligners, then veneers can be a great alternative.

  • Diastema (Gaps between teeth): Diastema is common and can be hereditary. Most commonly found between your two upper front teeth (midline diastema) but may be found elsewhere. Using dental veneers, we can close this gap and give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile!

  • Fix chipped or broken teeth: Using dental veneers, we can repair your chipped or broken tooth.

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers can help you dramatically enhance your smile. Dental veneers are thin covers (no thicker than a fingernail!) that are bonded to the front face of your tooth or teeth to improve your smile. They are custom-made to look natural and fit in with your teeth perfectly. 

What are my options?

There are 2 main types of dental veneers. They are Porcelain and Composite Resins. There's a lot to consider when determining which is best for you and our friendly team will help you make that decision when you come to see us! But in summary:

  • Porcelain Veneers

    • Look more natural as they have a natural translucent sheen, mimicking natural teeth more closely​

    • Harder to stain than composite resins as they are less porous

    • Are strong and more durable than composite veneers

  • Composite Veneers

    • Can be moulded and fitted with a single sitting at our practice while porcelain veneers need 2 visits​

    • Can be repaired and touched up if you happen to chip them

    • They cost less than porcelain veneers
