Veneers are lab-made thin ceramic facets which will be applied on the buckle surfaces of the frontal and lateral teeth using special cements based on bonding systems.
The high quality ceramics used nowadays make veneers to be the most spectacular extreme makeover requiring a very conservative preparation of the teeth compared to ceramic crowns.
Porcelain veneers do not stain and are very gum tissue friendly if done properly. Veneers can be used to restore small chips or superficially cracked teeth, small multiple fillings, dark teeth or extensive white spots and gappy or mildly overcrowded teeth.
Ceramic veneers require just two appointments. On the first one the teeth will be prepared, filing down as less as possible followed by taking impressions for the lab.
White temporaries will be made enabling you to go about your normal daily life.
On the second appointment the temporaries will be removed and the lab-made porcelain veneers will be fitted.
A consultation with our cosmetic dentist is always needed as veneers are an option of treatment only in patients with a suitable bite.
If your bite does not allow you to receive veneers straightaway the dentist might advise you to first undertake a short orthodontic treatment to improve your bite before receiving veneers.
