What are Porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are laboratory made thin layered shells of porcelain which are applied to the teeth.

They can be used to alter the shapes, colour and appearance of teeth and close gaps between teeth as required. Furthermore in situations where tooth straightening is not possible or undesirable, tooth adjustments can be made to accommodate minor alignment discrepancies for the perfect smile.

Porcelain vs Composite

Composite materials and techniques have advanced tremendously over the last decade enabling them to last longer and maintain their appearance. However, the longevity of porcelain is far superior and does require less maintenance. Furthermore, some surface staining is not entirely maskable with composite and thus porcelain may be required in these circumstances.

Porcelain does however, require some, albeit minimal tooth removal which may not be desirable for some as this is irreversible. The process of porcelain veneer treatment does require an extra appointment, whereas composite bonding generally can be done in one day (after the initial consultation)

Benefits of porcelain veneers

  1. Veneers enable a quick way and guaranteed way to whiten and correct any minor discrepancies in tooth shape. They are usually performed on 4-6 teeth so that the shade and shape of the new teeth are kept uniform.
  2. Minor orthodontic discrepancies can be camouflaged with porcelain veneers which could be of benefit particularly if you are not keen on having any orthodontic treatment
  3. If there are any defects or deep stain which has occurred as the tooth has developed or it has been traumatised, it sometimes can be hard to mask with whitening or composite veneers. Similarly if the underlying enamel has been damaged, porcelain veneers can be used to improve the appearance shape and symmetry of your smile

Disadvantages of Veneers

  1. Porcelain veneers can be more costly than other forms of smile makeover treatments such as composite bonding as the veneers are made and processed in a specialised lab by a master ceramist.
  2. As some of the tooth structure is being adjusted and removed, it is an irreversible procedure whereas composite bonding is less invasive.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Are veneers a painful treatment?
No, as the tooth preparation, (if required at all) is limited to the outer surface of the teeth which is the non-sensitive part.
Will I need my teeth to be drilled?
There will be minor adjustments to the teeth, but this is minimal, especially if the teeth have been straightened previously How will I know if I like the look of veneers? The dentist providing the veneers will look at the current shape of the teeth, their colour, your facial and gum contours as well as things like lip position and tooth symmetry to make a decision on the character and profile of the veneers. However, the dental lab can perform a waxed version attached to a study model of your teeth so you can see and even trial the smile before any treatment begins.
How do I keep veneers clean?
Regular maintenance with a hygienist and treating them like you would for any of your natural teeth is best practice, as this allows for them to stay healthy for as long as possible
