Everyone deserves a smile they can be proud of and here at G Dental we make it a priority to deliver just that. Many patients who have chipped, gapped, discoloured or worn out teeth, feel as though these are conditions they would have to live with for the rest of their lives. But what if we told you that porcelain veneers might just be the solution you need! So, what exactly is a porcelain veneer? Appearing almost like real enamel, porcelain veneers are thin shells which are placed over your tooth to correct problems like those mentioned above. Made to last for years (if taken care of) veneers are effective in improving your teeth’s aesthetic appearance and functionality. Through the years, cosmetic dentistry has come a long way and from a consultation with our trained professionals we will be able to asses if veneers are right for you or if we should explore alternative treatment options.

To be eligible for veneers you would need to:

· Have good gum health · Have a sufficient amount of enamel · Do not have root canal infections

If you are considering veneers, here are 5 things you should know:

1. Veneers are one of the least invasive treatment options

The procedure sees that a thin piece of enamel is removed from your teeth to create a smooth surface for your veneer.Before the device is placed, we will ensure that the fit and shade match the rest of your teeth. Next, we will clean, polish, and etch the front of your teeth so they can bond with the veneers. We will then use a special type of dental cement to attach the veneers to your teeth. Unlike alternative cosmetic options like crowns, implants and dentures – veneers are less invasive and generally last longer.

2. Veneers do not affect your mouths functionality

If done properly, veneers should not affect your normal mouth functionality, but rather enhance it. Although you will take a little time to adjust to your new veneers, this should only last for a small amount of time.

3. It is not a case of one veneer fits all

Everyone is different and cosmetic dentistry embraces individuality. This is why veneers are custom made for your teeth to solve your individual problem. The device is then matched as closely as possible to the shade and shape of your teeth.

4. Porcelain veneers are mainly stain resistant

This means that you can eat or drink what you like without worrying about staining your veneers. The device is meant to cover up stained teeth caused by common agents like tea, and tobacco.

5. Not high Maintenance

After your procedure, you’ll be required to visit the dentist to ensure everything is going according to plan, thereafter you would treat your veneers just as you would your normal teeth. Ask your dentist which toothpaste is best for you. You will need to have regular dental check-ups and polishing.
