Dental veneers: beautiful confident smiles are possible

 

Do you feel self-conscious about your teeth? Do you avoid smiling in photos or in social situations? Over the years we have seen firsthand how improving the look of your smile can really boost a person’s self-confidence.

 

Dental veneers are an excellent choice for treating teeth that are chipped, discoloured, slightly crooked or closing small gaps between your teeth. Veneers can be made from porcelain or composite resin.

 

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth coloured shells that are bonded to the front surface of your tooth. Minimal tooth preparation is required prior to the veneer being made in a laboratory.  Porcelain veneers are very resistant to staining and chipping.

 

Composite veneers involve the layering of tooth coloured resin directly onto the tooth surface.  Composite veneers are non-invasive, reversible and can be removed or replaced as required. This option is usually much more affordable, however they are not as durable as porcelain.

 

The first step to a beautiful smile is a discussion with your dentist about your treatment options and what you are hoping to achieve. Your regular visit for a check-up is the perfect opportunity to discuss your options and ask any questions.
