Porcelain veneers are cosmetic tooth ‘covers’, made of tooth-coloured porcelain, that are applied to the outer surface of the tooth. Veneers at Simply Teeth in Essex are custom-made to fit. They go over existing teeth, completely covering the teeth and changing their appearance significantly.
Veneers can also be made a dental resin composite material. Dentists will generally recommend these veneers for various reasons. Porcelain is more stain resistant, more durable and has a more natural appearance. Additionally, porcelain veneers can last up to ten years.
Benefits of porcelain veneers

Are there any disadvantages?
While the good things are obvious; beautiful perfect teeth that will last many years. There are several cons of veneers that should be considered as well.
Veneers can’t be ‘undone’. Once the process is started, there’s no going back. Your teeth have to have a thin layer of enamel removed when the veneer is fitted. Some patients may also experience sensitivity from the enamel being removed.
