What Is a Dental Veneer?
A dental veneer is a custom-made thin layered cap that is attached to the surface of your natural tooth. Dental veneers can be used to give you the smile of your dreams by improving the colour, shape, or size of your natural tooth. They are a conservative treatment option that requires minimal adjustment to your tooth to achieve an aesthetic yet durable result. Veneers come in two varieties which are ceramic or composite veneers. There are pros and cons for both materials. Our dentists at Northcote Dental will discuss these options with you in detail so you can decide what is best for your teeth.
How long do veneers last?
Veneers are a long-term therapy that can last up to ten years on average. When properly cared for, however, they can endure up to 20 years. The type of food you eat, your home oral hygiene habits, how your teeth fit together, and if you grind or clench your jaws all have an impact on their lifespan. It is critical to maintain proper oral hygiene habits at home, as well as regular dental check-ups and cleanings, to ensure that your crown lasts as long as possible.
