Are you considering veneers to enhance your smile? Veneers are a popular choice for transforming your teeth, but there are a few important things to understand before taking the plunge.

At Teneriffe Dental, we’re here to guide you through every step of your veneers journey. Dr. Hayden Stewart and our dedicated team help patients in Brisbane, New Farm, Fortitude Valley, Bowen Hills, Teneriffe, and beyond with veneers.

Here’s 5 things you should know before you get veneers:

1. What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells that are custom-made to fit over the front front of your teeth. They are designed to improve the appearance of teeth that are stained, chipped, misaligned, or have gaps. As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Hayden Stewart is experienced in creating beautiful, natural-looking smiles with veneers.

2. How Long Do Veneers Last?

When considering veneers, longevity is a key factor. Porcelain veneers typically last between 10 to 15 years, while composite resin veneers have a shorter lifespan of about 5 to 7 years. The lifespan of your veneers will depend on your oral hygiene and lifestyle. Regular check-ups at Teneriffe Dental will help ensure your veneers stay in top condition.

3. Are Veneers Permanent?

Getting veneers is a significant decision because it involves a permanent change to your teeth. A small amount of enamel is removed to make space for the veneers, which means the process is irreversible. However, the results are stunning and can dramatically enhance your smile. If you have any concerns, Dr. Hayden Stewart and the team are always available to discuss your options and answer any questions.

4. How Do I Maintain My Veneers?

Maintaining your veneers is crucial for their longevity. Brush and floss daily, and avoid habits like nail-biting or chewing on hard objects. Regular visits to Teneriffe Dental will ensure your veneers are checked and professionally cleaned. Our team is skilled in both routine care and handling more urgent issues as your emergency dentist.

5. What Material Should I Choose?

The material of your veneers is an important consideration. Porcelain veneers are highly durable and resist stains better than composite resin. They also mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth, offering a more realistic appearance. Composite resin veneers are less expensive and can be applied in a single visit, but they are not as long-lasting. Dr. Hayden Stewart will help you choose the best material based on your needs and budget.
