What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer thin, custom-made shells of tooth coloured material designed to cover the surface of your teeth to improve your appearance.
These shells are bonded to the front of your teeth and allow you to change the colour, shape, size or length of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers resist stains better than composite veneers and mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth a lot better, which gives you a natural looking smile that lasts longer.
What problems can be corrected with porcelain veneers?
There is a huge list of indications of porcelain veneer treatment, these include but are not limited to:
- aligning crooked teeth
- reducing excess gum when smiling
- changing the colour of your teeth to make them whiter
- increasing the width of your smile
- improving the size of your teeth
- replacing older cosmetic treatment
- fixing decay
- addressing issues with worn down teeth due to clenching and grinding
How long will porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers can last anywhere from 5-20 years depending on how well they are taken care of and other factors.
The main reason you will need to replace your porcelain veneers is due to gum line shrinkage which happens when you brush too hard or if the porcelain veneer becomes damaged or comes off.
Depending on the type of wear or damage, your porcelain veneers may require cosmetic repairs or a full replacement.
Will I need to destroy my teeth to get veneers?
There is usually a small amount of preparation on the surface of the tooth required with porcelain veneers.
These preparations are usually done without the need for anaesthetic, therefore you are not uncomfortable throughout and leaves minimal to no damage to your natural tooth.
In extreme or complex cases, porcelain veneers may require further preparation, however your dentist can go through what the best options are if this is of concern for you.
Cases which would require more preparation and would therefore have a high degree of tooth loss are often suited for different treatments such as Invisalign or dental crowns.
