Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells made from porcelain, which are used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of an affected tooth (or several teeth). Porcelain veneers are used to effectively address a number of dental problems concerning the improvement of how teeth look like, to provide much brighter smiles to patients.

  • Discoloured, chipped or cracked teeth can benefit from a veneer.
  • A thin layer of the tooth surface is shaved off.
  • A veneer is made to fit perfectly, protecting the tooth underneath.
 

They are considered to be the better choice, compared to composite veneers; here are the advantages of using porcelain veneers over composite veneers:

  • Porcelain veneers will last much longer compared to composite veneers, and they are much more durable.
  • Porcelain veneers will have a closer resemblance to the appearance of natural teeth, compared to composite veneers.
  • Porcelain veneers are not prone to staining in the long run, unlike their composite counterparts.

Conditions Addressed by Porcelain Veneers

Decayed/Damaged Teeth – Teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay, cracks or chips, can effectively be addressed with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers  can effectively improve both the form and function of damaged teeth by covering the affected part (or parts) with the porcelain shell.

 

Teeth Discolourations – Teeth that have been stained or discoloured can ruin a bright smile, and need to be addressed to improve the overall smile appearance. Porcelain veneers are used to cover the affected tooth (or teeth), so that the stained or discoloured parts are not visible anymore – and only natural, healthy-looking teeth can be seen. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured/stained tooth, or to lighten front teeth (usually the upper ones).

 

Gaps or Spaces Between Teeth – Gaps or spaces formed between teeth diminish the attractiveness of a person’s smile, but these spaces can be corrected with the help of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can augment the spaces or gaps between teeth, so the smile looks more complete with evenly-spaced teeth.
