Made of porcelain or composite resin, Dental Veneers are thin shells that attach to the front of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are stronger than composite resin veneers and also last longer. If you have crooked, chipped, stained, discoloured or misshapen teeth, veneers are a good option. Veneers help you smile with confidence again without worrying about the look of your teeth.
Some cases when veneers might not be an ideal solution for you are:
• Extensive tooth decay or gum disease (In this case these need to be treated first)
• Not enough enamel left on the tooth for the veneer to stick properly • Too much of the tooth is missing
• Grinding or clenching teeth can chip or break porcelain veneers
Just like your natural teeth, dental veneers need to be maintained by following strict oral hygiene.
