Porcelain veneers are one of the most effective restorative procedures for rectifying teeth that are chipped, stained or discoloured, crooked or have gaps between them. The thin laminate smooth out any imperfections and they help to beautify the teeth.
Usually made from a thin layer of porcelain, they are carefully crafted by the dentist and fabricated by the dental ceramist, to suit the individual patient’s smile. The tooth is minimally prepared, which means a very thin layer of the tooth may be removed or roughened for maximum adhesive and aesthetic accuracy or perfection. They are bonded using the most modern adhesive techniques, to the front surface of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are an ideal solution to capturing the look you have always wanted with only minimal disturbance to your tooth surface.
Despite there versatility, dental veneers are strictly a cosmetic procedure that does not restore the function or strength of the teeth. It is recommended for patients who wish to correct the appearance of their otherwise healthy and functional natural teeth.
Porcelain Veneers are used to improve the aesthetics of your smile for a variety of dental issues, including:
- Replacing old, unattractive veneers
- Straightening crooked teeth with out the use of orthodontics
- Closing spaces between teeth
- Restoring broken-down or worn-down teeth
- Improving the appearance of badly discoloured teeth
