Dental veneers are carefully crafted custom made facings that are permanently bonded to the front of your teeth to correct issues such as:

  • Stained teeth

  • Chipped Tooth

  • Teeth that are worn down

  • Close gaps in your teeth

  • Correct (minor) crooked teeth

They can be made from ceramic (or porcelain) or composite resin enhancing their colour and shape while providing an effective solution to these problems.

Veneers can be fitted over any number of teeth, usually fitted over the front 4, 6 or 8 teeth. Most people have them placed on their upper teeth only, but depending on what is visible in your smile, the lower teeth can receive veneers too.

To create space for these thin veneers, your teeth are meticulously prepared, removing a very thin outer layer of the tooth. The veneer is precisely fitted resulting in a very natural restoration with a seamless transition to the gum line.

Who Can Benefit From This Procedure?

If you and your dentist decide that dental veneers are the best option for you, you will need to participate in treatment planning to determine the best course of action for your treatment. Treatment planning will include discussion about the appropriate preparation of your teeth for the dental veneer deemed the best option for you as well as a discussion about what is needed in order for your dental veneer to look and fit properly

 

Treatment planning allows you to become actively involved in your dental veneer procedure and overall “smile design”. During your treatment planning, you should inform your dentist of your preference for the shape, colour or shade, length and width – your experienced Top Dental Smile Practice dentist can also provide recommendations as to what will look best and suit your needs. We take the time to understand your individual preferences which can range from a very subtle, natural look to a glamorous, bright, “Hollywood’’ smile.

What to Expect During the Treatment

The procedure can be completed in as little as two visits over the course of approximately two weeks. After determining your suitability and creating a customised plan for you, you will be ready for your dental veneer treatment.

Well in advance, your dentist would have formed your smile design with you to create a pretend mock-up of the shape of the new teeth that can essentially be “tried in” the mouth. This is to check that you are happy with the size, shape, length and overall look of your new smile. This try-in will also function as a temporary restoration for you in the two week period after preparation appointment.

Once you have approved the aesthetic look, your dentist will apply a local anaesthetic to the treatment area to reduce any discomfort during the preparation stage .Your dentist will then minimally reshape your tooth to provide the best fit for the veneer.

Porcelain vs. Composite Veneers

Composite resin veneers are a cost-effective solution for a short to medium term result. The results can be very good, but not as natural, precise and brilliant as porcelain which offers the best looking results. This is because composite resin is applied directly onto the teeth, rather than a model, with fewer colours/shades available.

In some situations however, such as small chips at the edges of your teeth, composite veneers can be perfectly suitable. This is because they can be thinner and also require less of your natural tooth to be removed before placement, allowing your dentist to give you a conservative solution.

Composite veneers can often be done in a single appointment. Your dentist will apply a layer of shaded composite directly onto your teeth which is then shaped to the desired appearance. Once the correct shape is achieved, the composite is hardened with a special light, then finished and polished to complete the procedure.

How Long do Veneers Last?

On average, dental veneers can last for around 8 to 10 years before they will need to be replaced. Many can last longer, depending on how well the gums are cleaned, how much someone clenches and grinds their jaw and other habits. However, if you experience a chip or crack you should visit your dentist straight away.

CANDIDATES FOR VENEERS

Are Veneers Right For Me?

 

Good candidates for veneers must be healthy and free of issues like periodontal (gum) disease and tooth decay. Since veneers are strictly a cosmetic treatment, they cannot be used to treat a seriously-damaged tooth. If your tooth is cracked or damaged, you may need a dental crown to cover it up and protect it. Patients who grind or clench their teeth should get a night guard before receiving veneers, since clenching and grinding can crack or damage the porcelain. Non-smokers are also preferred.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does Age Matter When It Comes To Veneers?

 

No. No matter how old (or young) you are, you may be a good candidate for veneers as long as you have a healthy mouth. To get veneers, you must be free of major oral health problems like damaged and decayed teeth or periodontal (gum) disease. You must also not have any major issues with teeth alignment, and a healthy bite. As long as you meet these qualifications, you’re a good candidate for veneers.

In addition, your teeth must be finished growing if you’re a younger person. Veneers are typically not recommended if you are under the age of 16 for this reason. Your dentist will be able to tell you if you qualify for veneers as a teenager.
If you’re an older adult, you may want to discuss your options for treatment with your dentist, and go over past crowns and other restorative dental work that you may have had done in the past. This ensures that your dentist can create a customized veneer treatment plan that will meet your needs.

What Habits Do I Need To Avoid After I Get My Veneers?

 

There are a few things you should keep in mind to prolong the lifespan of your veneers and avoid damaging them. First, make sure you don’t try to chew or bite extremely hard foods like hard candy, popcorn, ice, and nuts with your veneers, as this could chip or damage the veneer. Use your rear molars to chew hard foods.

You also should avoid chewing on non-food objects. This includes pencils and pens, as well as fingernails. Don’t use your teeth as “
tools” either. Avoid ripping tape or opening packages with the help of your teeth, because this can damage both your veneers and natural teeth.

It’s also important to protect your new smile. If you have a history of teeth grinding, make sure that you get a new custom night guard to fit your new smile, and wear it at night to prevent damage to your veneers and your teeth.
In addition, if you play contact sports, you should invest in a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard from us. Mouthguards help cushion and protect the teeth if you take a hard hit, preventing damage to your veneers as well as other oral injuries.
