Patients looking for cosmetic changes to their smile find that porcelain veneers are a fast and durable solution. These custom-fabricated facings mask misshapen, chipped or discoloured teeth. They fill in gaps between teeth, accomplishing the effect of orthodontic treatment and teeth whitening all in just a couple of visits to the dentist.
What are the advantages of porcelain veneers?
- Feel natural: Only about 1 millimeter thick, about the thickness of a fingernail, veneers feel natural.
- Look natural: Porcelain veneers have the translucent look of natural teeth.
- Customizable: You choose the shape and colour of the veneer for the smile you want.
- Lasting results: Porcelain resists staining and, with good dental hygiene, will remain bright and beautiful for a long time
How are veneers applied?
Applying porcelain veneers rarely causes patients discomfort. To ensure that the veneers fit and adhere well to the teeth, we prepare the teeth by removing a thin layer of the tooth surface to accommodate the veneer comfortably. Then the veneers are bonded to the surface of the teeth.
