Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution for a variety of dental conditions that affect the appearance of the front teeth. Durable and colour-stable veneers are the perfect way to restore the natural beauty of your teeth.

Patients have the option on deciding between dental bonding and porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers tend to look more natural. These type of restorations involve bonding a thin layer of porcelain to the tooth which has been made by a dental technician.

Dental bonding may also utilise a composite resin similar to the material used for dental fillings to build up a layer of resin on the tooth. They are more cost effective and only require a single visit, but dental bondings tend to discolour and break down faster than porcelain veneers. These are sometimes indicated in patients who grind their teeth. Dental bonding usually has a shorter lifespan than porcelain veneers.

Patients need to be more cautious  when eating certain hard foods, for example nuts.
