Thin laminates that are semi-translucent tooth-coloured shells.

Veneers are thin laminates that are semi-translucent tooth-coloured shells. They are shaped in such a way that they bond to the front of your teeth perfectly. If your teeth are strong and healthy, veneers can be used instead of a dental crown. Dental veneers greatly improve your smile and are the best aesthetic solution if you want to avoid other complex dental procedures.

Veneers Treatment in Christchurch NZ

Veneers can be used to address spaces between your teeth. They are also used if you have broken or chipped teeth and permanently stained teeth. Porcelain veneers involve the removal of a small amount of tooth surface whereas direct laminate veneers are directly applied to your tooth and then polished to get the desired look. Your dentist will examine you and advise the best aesthetic solution for you. When proper oral hygiene is followed, veneers last for many years.

What is Veneers?

Veneers are used to restore chipped, uneven or discoloured teeth. They can be used instead of a crown if your tooth is strong and healthy and are either made from porcelain or composite material.

During veneers treatment thin, tooth-coloured shells also known as laminates are shaped to bond to the front of your teeth. For porcelain veneers, your teeth may be prepared by removing a small amount of the front surface of the tooth then a thin bit of porcelain is cemented to your front teeth. Composite veneers are created by applying layers of bonded ceramic composite to the surface of the tooth.

Veneers offer many benefits including enhancing the look of your teeth and providing a natural tooth appearance. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and composite veneers are easy to apply, repair and remove. Veneers may require minimal reshaping of the natural tooth.
