Veneers can cover many teeth problems. By a South east London dentist

24 / 06 / 2010

Many of us tend to think of veneers as the answer to cover up discoloured teeth, but they have a lot more going for them these days says a South east London dentist. Cracked teeth, a chipped tooth or even a misaligned tooth can all be covered by a veneer. Veneer design and technology has come a long way in the last few years alone, and they are still often the cheapest and most effective method of covering up embarrassing problems. The main types are Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers, with Porcelain Veneers being the ones that we are more familiar with. In order to have them fitted you have to have some enamel taken off the tooth, this amounts to about the same thickness as the veneer and it never grows back. They last from 5 to 15 years and then they are easily replaced with new ones; they discolour around the 10-15 year mark. They are very affective and the tooth can be used in the normal way, it is also kept clean in the usual manner and your usual visits to the dentist are still needed. With Lumineers the story is much different; they are made from a fairly new formula and are much harder wearing than conventional veneers. Because of this they can be made much thinner, the advantage here is that no enamel is taken off the tooth and the procedure is reversible in the future. They also last longer and it is estimated that they will last up to 20 years in most cases.
