What are Teeth Veneers?

Teeth veneers are thin shells of tooth-coloured mate­r­ial. 

They are «glued» to the front sur­face of teeth to trans­form crooked, stained, dam­aged or worn teeth into a per­fect, white smile. 

Dentists may also recommend veneers to quickly fix minor twists, overlaps, and small gaps.


What are the advantages of dental veneers?
  • They provide a natural tooth appearance.
    Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth.


  • Porcelain  is well tolerated by gum tissues

  • Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color and shape; With veneers—as opposed to crowns—your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.

  • Porcelain veneers are stain resistant. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials.

  • White smile. For teeth that resist whitening, veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white.

What are the potential disadvantages of  Teeth Veneers
  • No going back.
    Because a portion of the original tooth enamel is reduced, a veneer is not considered a reversible treatment. Although adjustments and even new veneers can be made, you can never reliably return to the original condition of the tooth.

  • Time delay.
    Creating porcelain veneers requires some laboratory time, so expect at least 2 weeks before they’re ready to be applied. However your dentist will normally put temporary composite veneers in place.

  • Temporary sensetivity.
    After the porcelain veneers are attached you will probably have some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures due to the removal of that thin layer of enamel. This typically disappears within a few days. 


  • Veneers are more brittle.
    Compared to your naural teeth. Although they’re very strong, veneers are also brittle. You should avoid the same excessive stresses you would avoid with non-veneered teeth: don’t bite your fingernails, chew ice, or open beer bottles with your veneers.


  • Touch up work will eventually be required.
    If the client has good dental care and regular dentist visits, they should expect the porcelain veneers to last for approximately 6 – 12 years before any touch up work is required.


Maintenance of a Porcelain Veneer

Maintaining porcelain veneers is actually quite simple: Treat them as you would your natural teeth, with twice a day brushing and flossing, using non-abrasive toothpaste.

One week after your veneers are placed, we will ask you to return to the office for a follow-up visit and evaluation so the dentist can see how your mouth is reacting to the veneers. Even if you feel the veneers are a success, this appointment is vital to your future oral health.

If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth, your dentist may fit you with a nighttime bite guard so you do not damage your veneers.

You should also return to your dentist for regular professional maintenance because porcelain veneers should be polished with a specially formulated, non-abrasive paste, and because your dentist needs to inspect your dentistry for any sign of potential failure.
