Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can be very effective for teeth that are chipped, stained or poorly shaped. They can also improve crooked or gapped front teeth. They can achieve remarkable results quickly and easily with little disruption to your natural tooth surface. As with all dental procedures, our experienced team will conduct a thorough oral examination to assess your most suitable treatment option.

Although fine, these shells of porcelain become extremely strong and durable when bonded onto the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can give you a significantly better smile in as little as two appointments.

Preparation is the key for success and requires clinical precision. Similar to when receiving a crown, your tooth or teeth are re-shaped and a minor amount of enamel is removed so your veneers can bond correctly to your teeth at the gum-line. This together with correct colour choice helps them look very natural.

Following preparation, a moulded impression is made and sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication.

At your next appointment, your new veneers are placed over your prepared teeth and adjusted for comfort and fit to your gum-line prior to being bonded securely.

Even though your new veneers are high-grade porcelain, your gums and supporting teeth are still susceptible to decay. A regular maintenance routine of brushing twice a day with a soft bristled toothbrush and flossing or using a Pikster once a day will keep them in pristine condition and prevent periodontitis (gum disease).
