To all our Patients and the Community:
Due to COVID-19
The Dental Council, The Ministry of Health and
New Zealand Dental Association encouraged all practices to postpone any non-urgent care and elective care until further notice.
Dentists, hygienists and other oral health care workers are at higher risk for transmitting and contracting the infection, not only are they in close proximity to their patients, but they also handle drills that use water to cool as well as aerosol rinsing devices that can propel germs and droplets from inside the mouth into the air.
 
Therefore, for public safety we at Peninsula Dental Centre have decided to close completely for four weeks from Wednesday 25 March until 28 April unless the direction has changed.
 
However, Dr Mike Rabih will be available by phone (027 510 7066) to provide any needed advice during this difficult time.
 
Please Stay safe.

Can porcelain veneers get chipped or fall off?

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Porcelain veneers are considered to be a permanent restoration since they are bonded to the surface of your teeth. They are made of porcelain, a very strong material, so it is rare for them to chip or fall off. In the unlikely event that this does happen, however, the veneer can be repaired or replaced and bonded back into place.
