Cosmetic veneering allows a very conservative approach to reshaping your smile.
WHAT ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS?
They are razor thin custom made shells of specially shaped porcelain, which are glued to the front of your teeth. Veneers are crafted of-translucent tooth-colored highly compressed porcelain that is highly durable. They cosmetically modify teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or slightly crocked. Cosmetic veneers cost less than crowns, and they do not stain. They can be very thin like a contact lens, and are ideal for people who want a perfect smile.
With the help of our laboratory custom made superior veneers can be made to get the patient a very beautiful smile with minimal tooth intervention.
PORCELAIN VENEER REPLACEMENT
Positioning and placing porcelain veneers requires two visits to our clinic after the initial consultation. The suitability
of veneers on a patient will be assessed on the initial visit, not all people are suitable.
Under local anesthetic the teeth will be shaved down to allow the veneers to fit. Then, we will take an impression of your teeth and mouth, which will be sent to the dental laboratory. Finally we will place attractive temporary veneers, which you will wear until the permanent version is ready (typically around two weeks or under).
When the porcelain veneers are ready, you will return to our clinic. Your dentist will carefully remove the temporary veneers and place the permanent ones. He will then use special cement to bond the veneers firmly to the teeth. Finally, he will buff the veneers to a shine, and you can leave our practice with a brand new, flawless smile. With proper care, veneers will give your smile a natural-looking brilliance for years to come.
It is recommended on patients with hard bites, that a small bite guard is worn at night to protect veneers.
