Porcelain veneers are probably the most aesthetic means of creating a more pleasing & beautiful smile.

You may not be happy with your smile if you have crooked or discolored teeth or you may be one of those who have a gap between your front teeth. There may be some asymmetry in the shape or size of your teeth.

Porcelain veneers are a very conservative approach to provide the ideal solution for many cosmetic dentistry issues including chipped and uneven teeth, discoloured teeth, gappy teeth or small-sized teeth.

With porcelain veneers, you can have a smile that lets you feel your most confident, attractive, and self-assured. The veneers are durable, beautiful, and capable of addressing myriad cosmetic dental problems to produce a smile you will be proud to show the world.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers cannot only fix a number of cosmetic problems in a relatively short period of time but they are also

  • Customized to fit seamlessly into your smile
  • Crafted out of the highest quality materials
  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Easy to care for
  • Capable of complementing your overall facial shape

The porcelain material used for dental veneers is durable and can last for many years, potentially decades, without needing to be replaced. The material also resists fading and staining.

In addition, they are minimally invasive which means we do not have to cut a lot of tooth structure (approx. 0-5mm) in order to achieve the optimal results. It is similar to placing a false fingernail on your nails.

What is the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are placed over three to four visits including a consultation visit. During your first visit, your dentist will listen to your concerns, evaluate your teeth and gums, and cover all of your treatment options. If porcelain veneers are the best fit, the planning phase can begin.

During your second visit, an impression of your teeth will be made, which will act as a template to create some temporary veneers. This process is completed by the dental laboratory. They will create a model that will show you the final result when your veneers are in place. This step does not involve any preparation of your teeth.

During the third visit, your dentist will discuss the pre-operative models with you.If you are happy with the shape and size of the new teeth created on the model by our expert dental ceramist, you will be booked for a tooth preparation appointment. Thus, tooth preparation will be completed. At the fourth visit. After your teeth are prepared for veneers, temporary restorations will be placed until your permanent veneers have been created.

We collaborate with highly trained ceramists to craft your dental veneers. Your veneers will be shaded, sized, shaped, and polished to fit seamlessly into your smile, producing a smile that is complementary to your facial features. On your final visit, we will remove your temporary restorations and replace them with your custom-made veneers, which will be fitted precisely for optimal results.

How do I care for my Porcelain Veneers?

One of the most remarkable things about porcelain veneers is that they need no extra care, just the same steps as you follow for your daily oral hygiene routine. Brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush after every meal and flossing once or twice a day will help keep your veneers bright and attractive while helping prevent decay from forming underneath or alongside.

You may just have to take care of few things. To prevent damage to your porcelain veneers, you will want to:

  • Use a soft-bristled or an electric toothbrush
  • Avoid toothpastes with baking soda and other abrasives
  • Refrain from using alcohol-containing mouthwashes
