Instant Veneers

Instant Dental veneers are taking the cosmetic dentistry world by storm , but what are they?

If you have a broken down tooth, or one that is chipped then instant veneers can help. Your dentist will clean the tooth and may trim away a small amount of tooth if the area that has broken has gone really dark.

Your dentist will then apply a bonding solution to the outer surface of your tooth. Using a special ‘composite’ tooth coloured material (similar to putty in consistency) the dentist will then rebuild your tooth to the correct shape and size by adding this material.

How long to instant veneers last?

This depends on a range of factors from your diet to your bite, but they should be able to last for a few years if looked after well.

How many teeth can be done with Instant Veneers?

This really depends on the create skill of your dentist and how confident they are to apply this material to many teeth at once. It also depends on how much of the front of the tooth is being covered at any one time. The best thing is to ask your dentist for advice.
