Dental veneers are designed to disguise less-than-perfect teeth in terms of tooth-size discrepancy or colour in order to ensure an aesthetically pleasing smile.
A dental veneer is a thin layer of carefully crafted porcelain that fits over the front surface of a tooth to create natural-looking results, perfectly mirroring the translucency of natural teeth.
They not only improve the shape of a tooth (and, in some cases, can lengthen shortened teeth) but can also lighten the colour and enhanced its position.
They are stain resistant and very durable in the long term when planned well.
They are also a great anti-ageing treatment, replacing discoloured teeth with porcelain veneers in the colour of your choice that give you a more youthful appearance.
Your first step to a new smile requires you to come in for a consultation so we can assess your oral health before determining your eligibility for such a treatment.
Once your dentist has established you require a veneer, treatment can proceed and can usually be performed over just two visits. In some cases, no preparation of the teeth is needed and in other cases, a very small amount of tooth enamel needs to be removed (approx. 0.3-0.5mm maximum) to accommodate the thickness of the veneer.
Impressions of the tooth in question and neighbouring teeth will be taken so the dental lab can create a veneer that suits your exact smile proportions.
Your tooth shade will be taken into account to give the best aesthetic result possible. Once we receive your veneer back from the lab, we can invite you back to have the veneer bonded and make any minor adjustments.
