A new smile can enhance your appearance and improve your confidence. Dental veneers are thin coverings made from composite resin or porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. Unlike dental implants and crowns, they do not replace teeth or parts of teeth.

Why do we use veneers?

Dental veneers are used to treat a range of cosmetic issues. They can be used to change the colour, shape, texture and alignment of your teeth. Common treatments include restoring chipped, broken, or discoloured teeth in the more visible parts of your mouth.

How do I get dental veneers?

During an initial consultation, your dentist will determine your suitability for dental veneers. It is important that veneers only be added to healthy teeth, so your dentist will closely examine your teeth and gums for signs of decay or disease.

Veneers are created from a mould of your teeth. When the veneers are ready, your teeth are thoroughly cleaned and prepared for the veneers to be bonded into position.

How do I care for my dental veneers?

Caring for dental veneers involves:

  • maintaining good dental hygiene habits.
  • avoiding biting and chewing hard foods (such as ice and lollies) and objects (such as pens and fingernails).
  • wearing a mouthguard when you play sport.
  • wearing a nightguard if you grind or clench your teeth at night.
