Porcelain Veneers

by | Oct 28, 2023 | Veneers

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells of porcelain that are designed to cover the front surface of a tooth. They are a popular cosmetic dentistry option used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, stained, chipped, misaligned, or have other cosmetic issues. Porcelain veneers are often used to create a more aesthetically pleasing and uniform smile.

Here’s how the process typically works:

Consultation: You’ll start with a consultation with a dentist to discuss your goals and determine if porcelain veneers are a suitable option for your specific dental needs.

Preparation: In most cases, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front surface of the teeth that will receive the veneers. This is done to ensure that the veneers fit properly and look natural.

Impressions: The dentist will take impressions or digital scans of your prepared teeth, which will be used to create the custom veneers.

Custom fabrication: The impressions or scans are sent to a dental laboratory where skilled technicians create your veneers to match the desired shape, size, and color.

Temporary veneers: While waiting for the permanent veneers to be fabricated, temporary veneers may be placed on your teeth to protect them.

Bonding: Once the custom veneers are ready, they are carefully bonded to your teeth using a strong adhesive. The dentist will ensure the fit is precise and that the veneers look natural.

Porcelain veneers are known for their durability and resistance to staining, making them a long-lasting option for improving the appearance of your teeth. They can also be customised to achieve the desired shade and shape, allowing for a significant enhancement in the aesthetics of your smile.

We can determine whether porcelain veneers are the right solution for your dental concerns and to discuss the process, costs, and potential risks associated with the procedure.
