Ceramic Veneers are used to cover and restore the front upper and/or lower teeth; they can be the most ideal option when you are looking to improve the shape or colour of your teeth.
Perfect for a single tooth restoration but also highly recommended if you are looking to achieve an overall, multiple teeth result. Veneers are long lasting and strong; they are considered an excellent investment towards a healthy and improved smile.
Ceramic Veneers are especially suitable for the front teeth in the following applications:
- Chipped or worn teeth
- To mask tooth discolouration that cannot be corrected with whitening
- To help create straighter smile
- To assist in the correction of a rotated tooth
- To assist in a smile makeover or smile reconstruction
Utilising the latest ceramic technologies we can ensure that your veneer is carefully colour matched and fabricated precisely to fit your underlying tooth. Once bonded to your natural tooth, you will notice the improved result and natural tooth-like appearance.
Many patients have experienced remarkable results with the provision of ceramic veneers; they are long lasting and can make a positive difference to your self confidence and appearance.
Resin Veneers use materials that match the shade, translucency and texture of your teeth. The resin material is applied to your teeth and sculpted to cover or replace the problem area. Resin veneers allow us to fill gaps between the teeth and remove spots, chips, and discolorations.
ADVANTAGES: Resin Veneers are a one-visit procedure, in some cases requiring no anaesthetic. The resin material is applied to the outside of the tooth creating a finish to natural tooth.
DISADVANTAGES: Although initially less expensive than ceramic veneers, resin veneers tend to break down and discolour in several years and will need replacing. It is for this reason that ceramic veneers are seen as more cost effective over time.
