Porcelain veneers are a popular restorative treatment to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers can be used to repair teeth that are chipped, discoloured and in some cases misaligned, to help create a beautiful smile.
Veneers are crafted from fine pieces of porcelain and bonded to the teeth. They are strong and durable. The preparation for veneers involves a minimal amount of tooth enamel being removed, in preparation for the porcelain. The porcelain is shaped to fit over the prepared teeth and a colour is chosen that best suits your smile.
Veneers are prepared over two separate appointments. The first appointment is to prepare the teeth along with temporary restorations, with a gap between appointments of three weeks for our dental laboratory to prepare the porcelain veneer to the shape and colour chosen. The second appointment is to cement the porcelain veneer in place.
