Dental veneers are thin porcelain or highly polished composite layers, which covers permanently the front surface of your teeth. Generally veneers require minimal preparation of the natural tooth surface and therefore considered more conservative to crowns.
Dental veneers can be used in conjunction with other dental treatments, such as orthodontics, full smile makeover or the replacement of old fillings to enhance a whiter and healthier smile.
How it works
Following a thorough assessment, which often consists of full set of clinical photographs, study model impressions and X-rays to assess the health of your teeth, you will return for the procedure or preparing your teeth for the thin ceramic veneers.
Discoloured, cracked and chipped teeth could benefit from a veneer, as a permanent treatment. A thin layer of the tooth surface is removed with a high speed drill and precise impressions will be taken and sent to the lab.
Temporary veneers will be placed on your teeth for a short term, while the permanent ones are being made by the dental lab.
Once the veneer returns from the lab, your teeth will be dried and the veneer will be fitted permanently to protect the tooth underneath.
This is a painless and safe method to improve the shape of damaged teeth, while still keeping most of the natural tooth structure.
