Porcelain Veneers

Q. What is a porcelain veneers restoration?
  • A veneer is a thin facing of porcelain veneers that is bonded to the front visible surface of a tooth.
  • It is similar to a false fingernail.
  • The appearance of a tooth can be dramatically improved by a veneer restoration.
  • It can change the colour, shape and size of a tooth.
  • Discoloured teeth can be permanently whitened with a veneer.
Q. When will I need a veneer?
  • Porcelain veneers are ideal for front teeth if you have any of the following:
  • Stained and discoloured teeth.
  • Fillings that are large and noticeable.
  • Chipped teeth.
  • Spaces between the teeth.
  • Slightly crooked teeth.
  • Teeth that are too short, too long, or too wide.
Q. Why is porcelain the best material for a veneer?
  • Porcelain has a translucency and lustre that cannot be equalled by any other material. It closely resembles the enamel of a tooth
  • Perfect colour matching to existing teeth is possible with a veneer.
  • A porcelain veneer is a very strong and durable tooth restoration.
  • Although a veneer is very thin, it becomes as strong as the enamel of the tooth. It is strengthened by being fused or bonded to the tooth.
  • It cannot be stained and will not discolour.
  • A porcelain veneer is very thin and as a result very little tooth material has to be trimmed away to accommodate it.
  • A veneer can also be made of a plastic material, but this can not match the aesthetics and durability of porcelain. Temporary veneers are made of acrylic.
Q. How careful must I be with my new veneers?
  • Veneers are very strong and durable and cannot be damaged easily.
  • Eating will not be affected, but it is not advisable to bite or chew hard sweets or chicken bones with the veneered teeth.
  • The bright lustre of a veneer can be preserved by using a non-abrasive toothpaste
