Dental veneers are used for a wide variety of reasons including transforming crooked, stained, damaged, chipped or worn teeth into a brand new straight set of white teeth.
Veneers are wafer-thin “covers” 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 the overall appearance.
Dental veneers are also used to treat stained teeth which cannot be improved by teeth whitening. Dental veneers are also used to treat damaged teeth which are chipped, broken or worn from excessive grinding. A small chip on a tooth can quickly be repaired with composite bonding or a porcelain veneer.
Dental veneers are also used to fill small gaps or spaces between front teeth ,which is different to a bridge treatment which is used to fill a gap as a result of a missing tooth
Veneers do have a finite life span which needless to say will be longer the better your oral hygiene. Porcelain veneers will typically last longer than composite veneers.
