AT A GLANCE
Dental veneers are fashioned from fine ceramic porcelain to provide a highly aesthetic, natural-looking smile, which can mask a multitude of imperfections.
Strong and durable, dental veneers are designed to last 15-20 years, giving you peace of mind in the longevity of your smile.
Ceramic veneers do not require a change in your diet or oral health routine so you can continue brushing and flossing your teeth with the same products.
WHAT IS A VENEER?
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain or composite resin applied to the tooth to improve its appearance. It changes the colour, shape, size, or length and is used to treat cosmetic issues. They are custom-made, applied by a dentist, require minimal tooth reduction and are popular for improving the teeth’s appearance.
HOW LONG WILL A VENEER LAST?
The lifespan of a veneer depends on several factors such as the quality of the material, the patient’s oral hygiene, and how well they take care of their teeth. In general, porcelain veneers can last between 10 -20 years, while composite veneers have a shorter lifespan. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can also help prolong the lifespan of veneers by identifying and addressing any potential issues early on.
IS IT A PAINFUL PROCEDURE?
While some patients may experience minor sensitivity or discomfort during and after the veneer placement process, getting dental veneers is usually a painless procedure.
