Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers are the most common cosmetic dental procedures to give you an appealing smile. Veneers provide a cheap but effective way of concealing dental imperfections such as discolored, chipped, gapped, or worn-down teeth. Some of the transformations that our dentists can do using dental veneers include crown lengthening of your teeth and aligning your front teeth. Our dentist also use veneers to hide gaps between the teeth or improve stained teeth’s appearance. Veneers comprise thin shells of tooth-colored material. The dentist bonds the shells on the front surface of the damaged teeth to improve their appearance.

Appealing Smile with Dental Veneers

Every person deals with dental imperfections that can cause discomfort like teeth discoloration, gapping between teeth, and chipping. Even worn-out teeth can interfere with your confidence and make you want to hide your smile. That is where veneers come in.

Dental veneers are the most used procedure for cosmetic surgery. Their effectiveness in improving dental aesthetics and affordability makes them a favourite for many people. They can provide the best transformations for several dental issues, including permanently stained and crooked teeth. However, veneers can only improve the visual appeal and not underlying issues. They may not be suitable for every patient. That is why it is essential that you undergo a thorough exam before the procedure. We perform comprehensive tests to ascertain whether veneers are the best for you. We also ensure the treatment plan we craft matches the outcome you expect.

Our dentist can align your teeth, lengthen the crown, hide stains, and hide gaps using veneers. The procedure involves attaching the material onto the enamel and shaping them to match the shape of the teeth. The application can be in layers in some cases, ensuring the result looks natural. The thin shells of tooth-coloured elements we use are hard to distinguish from natural teeth. That is one of our priorities because we know it plays a significant role in boosting your confidence as your smile.

Apart from the aesthetic appeal, we also care about your dental health. As such, we insist that patients with tooth decay or other issues like gum disease must undergo further treatment before getting veneers. Those with insufficient enamel structure or poor structure may not benefit from veneers as well. We will check for all these to get the correct diagnosis before settling on the best procedure for your short-term and long-term benefit. If we determine that veneers are not ideal, we will explore other alternatives.

Dental Veneer Over Views

1- Material

Dental veneers are typically made from porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers are more durable, stain-resistant, and closely mimic the natural appearance of teeth. Composite resin veneers are also an option and are usually more affordable but may not last as long as porcelain veneers.

2- Indication

  • Discolored teeth: Veneers can cover stains and discoloration that don’t respond well to teeth whitening.
  • Teeth that are misaligned or have gaps: Veneers can be used to create the appearance of straighter teeth and close small gaps.
  • Chipped or broken teeth: Veneers can restore the shape and integrity of damaged teeth.
  • Irregularly shaped or uneven teeth: Veneers can create a more uniform and attractive smile.

3- Procedure

Getting dental veneers typically involves several steps:

  • Consultation: Your dentist will assess your oral health and discuss your goals for improving your smile.
  • Preparation: A small amount of enamel is usually removed from the front surface of the tooth to make room for the veneer. This is done to ensure the veneer doesn’t make the tooth look bulky.
  • Impressions: Your dentist will take impressions of your prepared teeth to create custom veneers that fit your teeth perfectly.
  • Temporary veneers: Temporary veneers may be placed while the permanent ones are being fabricated in a dental lab.
  • Bonding: Once the permanent veneers are ready, they are bonded to the teeth using a strong adhesive and often a special light to cure and harden the bonding material.

5- Maintenance

Dental veneers are generally durable and can last for many years with proper care. Maintenance includes regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene practices, and avoiding habits that could damage the veneers, such as biting on hard objects or using teeth to open packages.


Dental veneers can provide a dramatic improvement in the appearance of one’s smile. They offer a minimally invasive approach to addressing various cosmetic dental concerns. They are also highly customizable in terms of color and shape.


While dental veneers are effective for cosmetic purposes, they are not a solution for underlying dental health issues. Additionally, they are irreversible because a layer of enamel is removed during the preparation process. Veneers may need replacement after a number of years, and they can be relatively expensive.

It’s essential to consult with a qualified dentist to determine whether dental veneers are the right solution for your specific dental needs and goals. Your dentist can help you understand the potential benefits, risks, and costs associated with this cosmetic dental procedure.
