Cosmetic Dentistry Makeovers with Porcelain Veneers
Typically involving just a couple of short and relatively painless visits to our dental clinic, our highly experienced cosmetic dentists can rejuvenate the appearance of your teeth for a natural and beautiful smile.
Veneers are commonly used to fix teeth that are worn, chipped or broken, and can help protect the surface of damaged teeth. Dental veneers can also fix teeth that are misaligned or irregularly shaped, close gaps and can solve the problem of permanent discolouration and staining.
WHAT IS A PORCELAIN VENEER?
Porcelain veneers are durable, thin laminates of ceramic that are bonded to the tooth surface. Porcelain is ideal in cosmetic dentistry, as the optical properties closely resemble tooth enamel and provides excellent aesthetic results.
Teeth must be mostly healthy and free of decay and gum disease to ensure a great result. Veneers typically require a small amount of tooth enamel to be reduced for optimal adhesion and to prevent the restored tooth from looking and feeling unnatural and bulky. For teeth that are more compromised and require additional protection, porcelain crowns may offer a more reliable alternative in the long term.
KEY BENEFITS TO Porcelain Veneers MAY INCLUDE:
- Dramatic, yet natural cosmetic enhancement
- Minimal tooth preparation
- Permanent and durable
- Stain resistant
