So what are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are a covering over the front surface of you tooth. Veneers can be used to cover staining or spotting on the tooths surface, or to give the appearance of straighter or reshaped teeth. The result of having veneers done will still look natural, but the confidence gained from a new smile can be immeasurable.
There are two ways veneers can be done:
Veneers can be done two ways, “direct veneers” built directly on the tooth or “indirect veneers” built outside of your mouth and fitted to your tooth.
Direct veneers, otherwise known as composite veneers, are made of the same material as white fillings and are built straight onto your tooth. By having this done, the material is moulded and formed on your tooth to get the desired shape and colour. Direct veneers are a less expensive approach to having veneers done.
Indirect veneers, otherwise known as ceramic veneers, are made from ceramic and are built in our dental lab then fitted to your tooth. The material used is stronger and less prone to chipping. Ceramic veneers do cost more, but the result will be longer lasting and stronger.
