Placing finely crafted porcelain veneers is one of the most effective and popular ways the life dental team can create a flawless and natural looking new smile.
A more conservative approach than many other cosmetic and restorative procedures, a porcelain veneer is bonded to the surface of your front teeth. Veneers are applied to cover irregularities, which may include chips, discoloration, gaps or as an alternative to orthodontic treatment.
Your teeth are carefully prepared by lightly buffing the surface and removing a small amount of enamel. When your veneers are placed, they match your surrounding natural teeth in size and shape. You may receive a local anaesthetic to ensure you are comfortable, although it is not always required.
Once prepared, an impression mould is made and temporary coverings may be placed while your veneers are being fabricated at a dental laboratory.
At your next life dental appointment, your veneers are assessed for fit, comfort and appearance prior to being secured. Regular brushing, flossing and oral hygiene appointments will ensure the longevity of your veneers and keep your new smile fresh and bright.
