Veneers are custom-made shells placed over the front of teeth to change colour, size or shape of the teeth, which are bonded (glued) into place. They can produce dramatic results.
Types of veneers
At Salamanca Dental, we offer two options, these are;
Composite veneers are carefully sculpted and shaped in the mouth, using a tooth-coloured filling material. They are highly aesthetic, durable, and easy to repair if chipped or damaged. They are also cost effective.
Porcelain veneers are highly aesthetic, made of ceramic and require minimal tooth preparation to place. Porcelain is resistant to the effects of staining. Porcelain veneers are strong and durable, but when chipped are difficult to repair. Often replacement after damage is the best long-term option.
Caring for your veneers
Veneers need to be cared for just like natural teeth. We recommend 6-monthly routine dental check-ups and cleaning along with diligent home oral hygiene, to help the veneers last a long time.
