What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a beautiful solution if your teeth are chipped, discoloured, gapped between the teeth and need reshaping. Veneers may visibly “correct” a crooked smile without the need for braces, repair chips and imperfections, and create a more attractive, more youthful-looking smile.
What is involved?
Veneers are custom-made porcelain wafers that are placed over the front of the teeth to enhance their appearance and/or repair damage. The procedure involves removing a thin amount of tooth enamel, taking molds (impressions) of the mouth and then placing in a temporary veneer while the permanent veneers are being made. This usually takes less than two hours.
Next, our laboratory carefully crafts the porcelain into veneers that look natural in look and feel. In approximately two weeks, they are ready to be affixed to the front of the teeth. Comfort and fit is assured during follow-up appointments until you’re completely satisfied with your new smile.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Veneers can last many years when taken care of and can dramatically change your smile and improve self-confidence as well as improve a variety of cosmetic dental problems.
