Veneers are a conservative option to improve the aesthetics of teeth. Veneers are an excellent choice in cases such as:

• Chipped or worn teeth
• Mildly misaligned teeth
• Gaps in teeth
• Stained teeth from antibiotics (tetracycline), root canal treatment or trauma
• Discoloured front fillings

Veneers can be done in composite resin or porcelain. Prior assessment is required to assess the suitability of veneers as a treatment option. Occasionally, we will recommend braces or Invisalign to reposition teeth and/or whitening prior to placing veneers to achieve a maximum cosmetic result. With good oral hygiene, both options can look amazing for many years.

Composite veneers

Composite veneers are a cheaper option that can be done in one visit. It is less invasive than porcelain veneers as less tooth structure needs to be removed for its placement. Placing composite veneers is a highly technique sensitive procedure to ensure good shade and shape matching with other teeth.

Composite veneers are however not as strong as porcelain will need repair or replacement over time as it can chip or break. Unlike porcelain, it is also more porous and can absorb stains more readily from food, drinks and tobacco, hence it will need buffing or replacement with time.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers is the more expensive option that is done over 2 visits. It is however much stronger than composite veneers and are more resistant to staining from food, drinks and tobacco making it last longer without the need for repairs or replacement.
