Veneers are a very thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the front of your teeth. Some people describe them as being like false fingernails for teeth, but in fact the veneers are much thinner than false fingernails and will not dislodge like false nails do. They also last considerably longer – typically about 10-15 years.
Because they are bonded to the front of your teeth, they can disguise a lot of imperfections including staining and natural darkening of the teeth, stained tooth-coloured fillings, chips, and cracks. They also enable some people to have a whiter smile than they may be able to achieve with tooth whitening.
Their versatility also means we can use veneers to hide gaps between teeth, to make crooked teeth appear beautifully straight and to disguise misshaped or worn teeth.
In short, veneers can transform your smile, and it’s not unusual for patients to report back that they have also changed their life. This may sound extreme, but these patients had been so self-conscious about their teeth for so long that it was holding them back. Having a new smile gave them the confidence to become more active in many aspects of their lives and to start fulfilling some of their long-held wishes.
