Veneers are custom made
As Veneers are custom made they require 2 visits to the dentist, one for prep and one for fit. They are used to improve the colour, shape or position of your teeth (straighten your teeth) and are available in many shades.
We have provided many porcelain Veneers for our patients. It involves cementing a custom made thin layer of porcelain over the front surface of a tooth, as it is only placed on the front surface the tooth preparation is minimal unlike a crown which involves reducing some tooth substance on every surface.
The Benefits of Dental Porcelain Veneers
- Porcelain Veneers greatly improve your appearance, hiding imperfections (e.g. chips).
- The veneer has the further advantage of retaining most of the natural tooth.
- Porcelain Veneers protect teeth from further damage. For example, acid in foods and drinks or from the stomach can cause your teeth to wear away. The teeth become thin and weak in these situations. Dental porcelain veneers protect them.
