Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are widely used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of your teeth or when front teeth are damaged. Veneers are custom made shells made out of ceramic material which looks exactly like natural teeth. When dental veneers are bonded over the front teeth, they cover up worn enamel, straighten slightly crooked teeth, gaps between teeth and chipped or cracked teeth. As veneers can be made in any shape or colour your smile can be redesigned to look completely natural. Veneers are the ideal solution that gives you a perfectly aligned symmetrical white smile. Due to the translucent quality of ceramic materials available today they also look totally natural.

An excellent solution for worn down and damaged teeth!

Enamel is the thin, tough outer surface that coats your teeth and gives them a brilliant white appearance. With age and over time, this enamel can wear – with dull, stained and discoloured teeth as a result. Age and medications can contribute to this, but often poor habits like smoking, drinking carbonated drinks, or poor oral hygiene are the reason teeth are permanently stained.

The initial consultation.

Before your treatment it is important to tell your dentist exactly what you would like to achieve. You can talk about what shape or colour you would like your teeth to be, and exactly what the treatment will entail for you. Ask your dentist to provide you with examples (before and after shots) of previous work that they have done that are similar to the treatment you would like to undergo.

It is very important that your teeth and gums are healthy before beginning cosmetic dental treatment. Once your dentist has made sure this is the case, your new smile can be designed and your teeth are prepared to accommodate the veneers.
