Our teeth go through a lot given they are used each and every day. As a result, there is a high likelihood of them getting damaged. Your oral hygiene habits also contribute to the quality of your smile.
Dental Veneers are a good option to solve chipped, discoloured and also to straighten teeth without using orthodontics. With our latest technology, you can even get a new set of dental veneers for your teeth in just one visit or the more typical case of just two visits to get a different smile.
Dental Veneers is a procedure where the patient’s teeth will be covered with a material which covers discolourations and imperfections and you can also select the colour to brighten teeth along with the shape to and also contribute greatly in improving your
Veneers are able to achieve these benefits since they are bonded to the front of the teeth in a short amount of time. This means that the procedure behind teeth veneer requires little or no anaesthesia and can be completed in just a short amount of time.
It should be noted that veneer teeth come in two different options with regards to the type of material you want to use for your procedure. This includes the Porcelain Veneer and the Composite Veneer.
Porcelain Veneers are made of ultra-thin shells of porcelain ceramic which are used to recreate the natural look of teeth. On the other hand, Composite Veneers are made up of composite resin, a form of synthetic resin that is utilised in dentistry as restorative material (filling material) or adhesive.
Each type of Dental Veneer we have offers their own set of advantages and disadvantages over the other. For instance, Porcelain Veneers are known to be more durable reinforcing the tooth structure in the process.
Furthermore, this type of veneer can last up to 10-15 years especially if it is well taken care of. That said, the cost of Porcelain Veneers is more expensive compared to Composite Veneers.
Composite resin veneers are known as the cheaper alternative. With that being said, the cheaper cost comes with some disadvantages relative to Porcelain Veneers.
Composite Veneers can last between five to seven years which is half the longevity or duration of a porcelain veneer. A benefit is that Composite Veneers can be repaired if they break or suffer any related damages while porcelain veneers cannot.
Choosing between the two options for your Dental Veneer is an important decision to make. Call us to answer any questions you may have and to book an appointment.
