Dental veneers can fix small yet visible cosmetic issues such as chips, cracks, discolouration or gaps in your teeth when you smile or talk.
Dental veneers are made to look and feel natural in your mouth – just like real teeth. Both you and those around won’t notice a difference.
Dental veneers are non-invasive and do not require anaesthesia to carry out the procedure. To bond veneers to a tooth/teeth, very little enamel is removed to secure it in place.
With dental veneers, your natural teeth will be protected from certain foods or drinks that tend to stain and discolour the teeth. Dental veneers can last up to 10 years with good oral hygiene and care.
Dental veneers are non-porous, making them stain-resistant and require low maintenance to preserve a great smile. You are still advised to brush and floss your teeth twice a day.
With proper care, veneers can last as long as 15 years.
