Porcelain veneers are very thin layers of porcelain that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to improve their appearance. They are long lasting, minimally invasive and can produce an extremely pleasing result in the treatment of the following problems:
For porcelain veneer treatment we may need to prepare the teeth minimally and painlessly, leaving you with great looking temporary veneers. After two weeks you return and we remove the temporaries, try-in the porcelain veneers and once we have checked that you are pleased with the final restorations, we then definitively bond them on for you to enjoy your new smile!
For ‘direct’ composite veneer treatment we can layer the materials onto your teeth with no preparation over one visit. These are recommended for younger patients as they require no tooth reduction, and are therefore seen as a very conservative restorative option.
Your dentist will show you how to clean and maintain the veneers to ensure a long-lasting result.
