How it works

What are the reasons for porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers can vastly improve your teeth and smile particularly if your teeth are:

  • Badly discolored teeth: Whitening does not always work or may need too much maintenance. An example of badly discoloured teeth is  if you had tetracycline antibiotics as a child. The discoloration can penetrate very deep into the enamel layers and is often difficult to remove with whitening alone.
  • Slightly crooked, uneven or gaps between teeth: Although orthodontic treatment such as braces or Invisalign (straight teeth – no braces) could be an option, this choice is not something every one wants. Porcelain veneers, however offers a very fast turn-around time of 2 to 3 weeks compared to orthodontic treatment that can take from 6 to 18 months on average.
  • Malformed teeth:  Such as unusually shaped, defective tooth enamel or spots on teeth are vastly improved.
  • Aging teeth or wear and tear: Worn, chipped or aged teeth can look amazingly rejuvenated.
  • Trauma:  Fractures, cracks or broken teeth due to trauma are often effectively treated.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a very strong  and thin customised shells of high-grade pure porcelain. Once they are securely bonded to the visible surface of your tooth they are almost indistinguishable from real teeth. The results they offer are often spectacular.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

At Frederick Street Dental Care porcelain veneers we offer usually last from 7 to 10 years, but may last longer. We will teach you simple ways to maintain and care for them to make sure they last as long as possible.
