Frequently Asked Questions
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They are made of either porcelain or composite resin materials.
Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are stained, discoloured, chipped, or misaligned. They can also be used to close gaps between teeth or to change the shape or size of teeth.
The process of getting veneers typically involves several appointments with your dentist. First, your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel. Then, impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to a dental lab, where your custom veneers will be fabricated. Once your veneers are ready, your dentist will bond them to the front surface of your teeth using a special dental adhesive.
The lifespan of veneers can vary depending on a number of factors, including the material used, the quality of the bonding process, and how well you care for your teeth. In general, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years or more with proper care, while composite resin veneers may need to be replaced every 5-7 years.
The process of getting veneers involves removing a small amount of enamel from your teeth, which means that the procedure is irreversible. However, if you decide to have your veneers removed, your teeth may feel sensitive or rough for a few days, but they should return to their original appearance over time.
