What are veneers?
There are two types of veneers: composite bonding and porcelain veneers, which are sometimes referred to as porcelain laminates. At Woodbury Park Dental, we use porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of your smile as this is the more durable of the two options. Composite bonding is useful for touching up minor imperfections by adding some porcelain resin onto your existing tooth. However, with porcelain veneers, we remove a very thin layer of your enamel and then apply custom-made, thin, tooth-shaped ceramic material over them (like a false nail!) The ceramic material is made to match your other teeth and you can have a single tooth treated, or all of your front teeth, for example, to give you a winning smile.
How do you get the measurements for the veneers?
With porcelain veneers, we need the exact measurements of your existing tooth or teeth to identify the size and shape that your veneers will need to be. We won’t be using any gunky impressions to ascertain this, but state-of-the-art technology with a 3D scan. Once the measurements have been obtained from this, we send it away to the ceramicists in their laboratory, where they will make your veneers just for you. This bespoke treatment is why you can rest assured that you will have a wonderful smile as a result of choosing porcelain veneers to improve your smile.
How long should veneers last?
If you look after your veneers properly by brushing, flossing and having dental check-ups, then you could have them for around 10 to 15 years. They are a permanent treatment solution, so you won’t need to worry about removing them. If they need replacing, we will be able to do this for you after that time. It is difficult to damage them as they are made of sturdy stuff!
