Porcelain Veneers

 

Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured material (either porcelain or composite) that are carefully bonded to front teeth to improve aesthetics and function of damaged, discoloured and decayed teeth.

Cosmetic veneers are excellent for treatment of:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Diseased teeth
  • Enamel defects

 

Advantages of Veneer

  • Simple and cheaper alternative to crowns
  • Resistant to stains
  • Strong and durable
  • Porcelain does not decay

 

Disadvantages

  • Veneers can be relatively expensive when compared to fillings
  • Small amount of tooth is polished/removed during preparation

Direct Laminate Veneers/ Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are conservative alternative to Porcelain Veneers. The procedure involves tooth being prepared/roughened and placement of bonded ceramic material to re-create natural colour of tooth’s surface.

Advantages
  • No impressions required for lab manufacturing
  • Can easily be repaired if chipped
  • Relatively cheaper
Disadvantages
  • Not as strong as Porcelain Veneers
  • Often require more maintenance than Porcelain Veneers
