Give your beaming smile a boost! Our cutting-edge Dental Practice in the heart of Chatham Dockside is proud to offer exceptional veneers as part of your smile experience.

What are veneers?

A veneer is a thin shell bonded to a tooth’s surface to enhance its aesthetic appearance. In a specialised dental laboratory, every veneer is custom made to fit and match your teeth perfectly.

As a form of cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers fill gaps between teeth, correct misaligned teeth and provide coverage for teeth that are not the desired colour.

What are veneers made from?

Veneers are typically made from porcelain or composite resins, with each material exhibiting different characteristics.

The strength and durability of porcelain veneers are excellent. Porcelain is non-porous, so it does not stain; however, it is difficult to repair if it breaks. In contrast, composite veneers can be repaired but typically have a shorter lifespan than porcelain veneers.

Do veneers damage your teeth?

The bonding materials used for veneers do not harm your natural teeth. Treatment plans are unique to every individual. A small piece of enamel may be removed from your natural tooth surface to make room for a veneer. If any preparation is required, this will be discussed as part of your comprehensive consultation.

How long do veneers last?

If treated with care and consideration, dental veneers can last between seven to ten years.
