What are porcelain veneers?

A fantastic option for those wanting a perfect smile, ceramic porcelain veneers are thin, ultra-strong, tooth-shaped porcelain shells that bond directly over your natural teeth. This method is used to fix gaps in teeth, straighten teeth, and improve their overall colour, shape and size. In only 2-4 weeks, porcelain veneers will change your smile, allowing you to feel more confident than ever before.

If you’re self-conscious about your smile and avoid showing it off in everyday life, porcelain veneers might just be the right choice for you. The team here at Studio Smiles will be able to listen to your needs, chat through any concerns you have and determine the perfect treatment process for you. Transform your smile.

How long do porcelain veneers last?
+

When taken care of properly, porcelain veneers can last anywhere between 15-20+ years. While they are extremely durable, it’s important to think about your daily habits. Do you grind your teeth at night? Maybe you chew on the end of your pen at work? Habits like these may cause chips and cracks to occur over time, damaging the veneers over time. Care for your teeth and you’ll have a bright, white smile for a long time.

Do veneers need to be replaced?
+

Generally, porcelain veneers should last anywhere between 15-20+ years. However, this is dependent on the care they receive post-treatment. Overtime they may chip or stain, so you can choose to have them replaced for a healthier looking smile. Remember that cosmetic teeth need to be treated as if they were your own, so maintaining optimal oral health is vital to their longevity.

When is it best to get porcelain veneers?
+

There is no specific timeline as to when you should get veneers - it’s all up to you! If you look in the mirror or back at photos of yourself and aren’t happy with your smile, porcelain veneers can be a great option. If you want to get rid of discolouration to your teeth, fill in any small gaps, attend to chipped or broken teeth or just straighten your teeth, it’ll be worthwhile looking into porcelain veneers. The end result of your cosmetic teeth will be life-changing. Transform your smile. Book an appointment today at our dental studio.

What is the maintenance with veneers?
+

Maintaining your cosmetic teeth is the key to their longevity. Here’s how you can keep them clean and pristine.

Consistent oral hygiene
Make sure you continue brushing and flossing twice a day. It’s important to note here that sometimes brushing your veneers too vigorously can end up with an opposite effect, damaging them further. So, take the steps to clean them properly and they’ll stay bright and beautiful.

Avoid damaging foods
When we proceed with a porcelain veneer treatment, our aim is to keep them as healthy and bright for as long as possible. This means we need to avoid certain foods that damage or stain our teeth. Hard foods such as popcorn, nuts, and ice cubes, and staining consumables such as black coffee and wine should be avoided where possible.

Visit your dentist regularly

The regular 6-month check-up is so important to maintain your oral health and overall well being. We know exactly what we’re doing, so putting your trust in us is essential to preserve your healthy smile. It’s the best thing you can do for your oral health and overall well being. Our highly qualified team at Studio Smiles is equipped to handle every situation.

What can I eat and drink when I’ve got veneers?
+

Essentially you can eat and drink anything you would with your natural teeth. However, there are certain foods and drinks that are best avoided completely or kept to a minimum. These include dark drinks such as black coffee, black tea and red wine, and hard foods such as chewy lollies, popcorn kernels and ice cubes. It’s important to remember that in order to take the best possible care of your veneers, you may need to make some changes to your diet.

Will my treatment hurt?
