Tooth preparation is minimal and confined to the enamel structure. The veneer is bonded to the tooth structure with tooth-coloured resin cement. Several visits are necessary to complete treatment. Patients should be aware that this is usually an irreversible process because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.
How long do dental veneers last?
They should be in place for many years if you look after them well.
They can break and become chipped just like natural teeth and you will need to take care when playing sports or eating hard foods.
