Porcelain veneers have long been used to create the ultimate smile makeover. With this treatment, it's possible to transform crooked, stained, damaged or badly worn teeth into a brand new, straight, white smile, as seen on many of the Hollywood greats.
Veneers are wafer-thin laminates or shells of tooth-coloured material, which can be either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material. They are cemented to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance.
Many dentists use the analogy that dental veneers are for your teeth, what false fingernails are for your hands.
Porcelain veneers will typically last between 5-10 years. To make your veneers last longer, follow a good oral hygiene program and visit your dentist for check-ups on a regular basis. Contact us for details on veneers and to arrange a consultation.
