Not everyone is happy with the appearance of their teeth. A tooth may be chipped, discoloured, slightly crooked or you
may have gaps between your front teeth - making you self conscious.
Veneers generally last between 7 and 15 years. After this time, the veneers would need to be replaced.
The placement of porcelain veneers is typically a pain-free procedure. Dentists usually numb the tooth and the
surrounding area before removing the dental enamel. In many cases, this amount of enamel is so small that patients do
not even require anaesthesia.
A veneer is a thin shell (typically porcelain) bonded onto the front of a tooth. Teeth-whitening products can't
penetrate a veneer or change its colour, but they can lighten your surrounding non- veneered teeth, which could leave
you with an unevenly toned smile
Both crowns and veneers are forms of dental restoration. They work by adding a covering to an existing tooth to improve its appearance or function. The main difference between a veneer and a crown is how much of the original tooth is removed, how thick the material covering the tooth is, and how much of the tooth is covered. Both crowns and veneers are effective in improving the aesthetic appearance of teeth.
A veneer is usually made of wafer-thin porcelain and is bonded to the front of a tooth. The porcelain is color-matched to your natural teeth. Veneers are strong but brittle, and sharp or repeated impacts can dislodge or crack them.
A crown encases the entire tooth. It can be made of metal, porcelain or a combination of both. It is usually around double the thickness of a veneer, making it more durable and resistant to cracking than a veneer.
