Veneers are thin tooth coloured shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth, dramatically enhancing their size, shape and colour, helping to create the smile of your dreams.
They are either made of semi translucent porcelain or composite resin. Veneers are used to correct imperfections of the teeth. These may include chipped teeth, stains, size irregularities and gaps. They may be used to create that “Brite” smile where whitening may not be the best option
Porcelain veneers are custom made in a laboratory after impressions are taken of your teeth. A minimal amount of tooth structure is removed prior to the impressions being taken. They are then bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are natural looking and do not change colour over time.
Composite veneers are made using composite resin that is bonded directly to your teeth. These veneers are a more affordable way to enhance your smile. However they require more maintenance over their lifespan.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
If porcelain veneers are properly installed, they can last for up to a decade or even longer if they are taken care of. Porcelain is very similar to the texture and strength of actual teeth, which mean that gum tissue can tolerate them more than other types of veneers or dentures. If porcelain veneers are taken care of, their strength does not diminish over time. In fact, veneers are almost as strong as teeth themselves.
Just like normal teeth, porcelain veneers can crack or get damaged. If your dental veneers get cracked or damaged in any way, you should contact Albion Dental Care immediately to assess the damage and get them repaired or replaced. Broken veneers have the potential to harm the tooth enamel or even the root of the tooth underneath, so it is important to get any issues resolved right away.
