1 - 2 appointments
We can help you transform your broken, chipped, crooked, or even discoloured teeth into the movie star smile you’re looking for with dental veneers at Kimberley Park Dental Practice. Your veneers are tailored to your teeth and the look you’re hoping to achieve, and we’ll make sure your journey to a beautiful smile is as smooth as possible.
Your veneers are made of dentist grade porcelain that, once bonded to your teeth, is extremely strong and durable. As long as they’re well taken care of, your veneers should last between 15 and 20 years, but it is possible for a dental veneer to come off in an accident or be chipped or damaged. Don’t worry, but it can be re-bonded to the tooth, or totally replaced if necessary.
No, but you do need to be careful with your teeth. Porcelain is a ceramic and is capable of cracking under very strong pressure, so it's also a good idea to avoid eating and chewing really hard foods, like nuts and ice. It’s good to remember that things that could potentially damage your natural teeth could also damage your veneers, so you might need to make some behavioural changes; no more nail biting, pen chewing, and teeth grinding, which increase the risk of damaging or cracking the veneers.
Unfortunately not. Because of their unique porcelain material, whitening gels don’t work on them. We recommend you get your teeth whitened before you get your dental veneers, because they can then be matched to the shade of your teeth for a natural appearance.
Before getting your veneers, you should bear in mind that because the process involves shaving down your natural teeth to remove some of the enamel, it isn’t reversible. It’s also important to note that dental veneers aren’t recommended for people with poor gum health, because they can’t cover up tooth or gum decay, and they can come off if the tooth underneath develops a cavity. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy when you have veneers is vital, and you should visit your dental hygienist regularly to help you maintain your new dental veneers and overall oral health.
