Veneers


Gentle Dental offers you the chance to enhance your smile using porcelain veneers that can provide the ultimate smile for uneven, chipped, discoloured or worn teeth. Porcelain veneers are a popular option to restore your natural smile by rejuvenating your discoloured or sometimes crooked teeth.

Veneers are wafer thin shells made of porcelain which are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve the cosmetic appearance. These veneers appear very natural, and could also be used to brighten the appearance of some teeth where other tooth whitening treatments are not an option. Porcelain veneers are tough surfaces that resist staining and chipping better than resin composite veneers.

Treatment
We may need to remove up to 1.5 mm of enamel from your teeth to accommodate space for the veneers, whereas, in some cases little or no modification is required. Treatment is usually performed in two or three visits to the dental surgery.

Who should have porcelain veneers?
Anyone can decide to have porcelain veneers to improve their smile. Porcelain veneers can correct:
• Crooked or uneven teeth
• Crowded teeth
• Chipped or worn teeth
• Gappy smiles
• Permanently stained or discoloured teeth

However, for teeth that are heavily compromised by large fillings, veneers may not be suitable.

How long do veneers last?
On average, you can expect your veneers to last for ten to fifteen years before they may require repair or replacing. As with any treatment, if you take care of your teeth and gums then your perfect smile will provide you with years of confidence. At Gentle Dental, we provide you with all of the information you need to ensure that they last longer.
