If you suffer from discoloration, spaces or gaps between your teeth, teeth that are worn down, chipped or broken, irregularly shaped teeth or if your smile is just suffering from general wear and tear, veneers may be the solution to restore your smile.
Made from wafer-thin layers of ceramic designed to match the natural colour and texture of your teeth, veneers are placed over your real teeth to create a uniform, even and attractive smile. When veneers are used in the hands of an expert dentist, the results will be extremely natural. Best of all, your smile will be transformed in only two sessions with your dental surgeon.

This mold is sent to the dental laboratory for manufacturing. The dental surgeon then removes a small amount from the surface of the teeth in preparation for the veneer to be fixed and secured. A second session will be required to fix the manufactured veneers to the teeth, using a special rein cement or adhesive to bond the veneer to the natural tooth in order to keep them securely in place.
How long do Dental Veneers last?
On average, Dental Veneers last for arout 10 years. It is important to note that veneers, like natural teeth, are susceptible to damage and need to be cared for as you would care for your real teeth to ensure that they last for the longest possible time.
How can I care for and maintain my Dental Veneers?
Maintenance of dental porcelain and composite resin veneers is straightforward. Conventional oral hygiene practices, such as regular brushing and flossing is required to remove harmful bacteria, plaque and food particles that get stuck in the teeth and cause decay.
Your dental surgeon will advise you on any special instructions that may be required to maintain your veneers.
