What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite (plastic) material that is custom-made to fit over the front surface of teeth. They’re used to improve the appearance of teeth that have become discoloured, chipped, worn, misshapen, or have gaps between them. Veneers are designed to match any individual desired shape and colour and can provide a long-lasting solution for enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a smile.

How do dental veneers work?

Planning and trialling what veneers may look like is the important first step in dental veneer treatment. When both dentist and patient are happy with the trial, the process then depends on the type of material (composite plastic or porcelain) and the desired outcome. Sometimes, small amounts of teeth need to be carefully and painlessly removed first in order to prepare the tooth surface for the veneer. At Bespoke Smiles Wanaka, both composite plastic and porcelain veneers are typically delivered in one treatment visit with our advanced CAD CAM skills and technology. 

Why choose dental veneers?

The instant improvement in the appearance of a smile is generally the main reason for opting to get dental veneers. Time sensitive cases (weddings, upcoming events, travel etc) are make veneers a popular choice. They also can achieve results ranging from very subtle smile improvements, to the full Hollywood glam smile. Advancements in digital planning, materials, and CAD CAM technology have made veneer results become predictable, cheaper, and last longer at Bespoke Smiles Wanaka. 

Are dental veneers suitable for everyone?

As amazing as dental veneers can look, they are still an artificial material trying to mimic or change tooth structure appearance. All artificial materials have a certain lifespan and so all dental veneers will need to be replaced sometime in the future. Many cosmetic cases can be treated by aligning teeth to desired positions and then whitening them to enhance their appearance.

How do I care for my dental veneers?

You can care for your dental veneers by following a good oral hygiene routine, including regular brushing and flossing, and avoiding hard or chewy foods that could damage them. It's also important to visit us regularly for check-ups and cleanings.

Can I whiten my teeth if I have dental veneers?

Dental veneers are designed to match the colour of your natural teeth or a desired shade of whiteness, and once they are placed, they cannot be whitened or bleached.  If you have veneers and your natural teeth surrounding them have become discoloured or stained, you may be able to achieve a more uniform and brighter smile by undergoing a teeth whitening treatment. If you are considering getting dental veneers, you may want to whiten your natural teeth before undergoing the procedure, as the colour of your veneers will be matched to your natural teeth.
