Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a custom-made, high-end treatment that enable you to have a natural, authentic and beautiful smile. They form part of the gold standard in aesthetic dentistry. Teeth that are visible in your smile may be broken, chipped, misaligned or discoloured. These deficiencies can be beautifully restored with veneers.

They are ideal for:

  • Recreating a uniform colour and shade for your teeth
  • Improving tooth alignment, shape and contour to better suit your facial aesthetics

The teeth are prepared applying the principles of minimally invasive dentistry.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells (less than 1.0mm thick) that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth.

Their properties include:

  • Semi-translucency to maximise light passing through. This greatly improves their aesthetics
  • Minimally invasive for your natural teeth
  • Resistant to staining
  • Durable and long lasting

The Process

Your dentist will work with you, using Digital Smile Design technology, to create the concept of ideal tooth size, shape and shade/colour. This will be prescribed to our lab, who will design a mockup of the finished product. We can then try in this mockup allowing you to visualise and test drive the final product of your veneers. Shape, contour and tooth lengths can be altered according to your requirements. Once you are happy with the mock-ups, the teeth are prepared applying the principles of minimally invasive dentistry.

The lab then fabricates the porcelain veneers to the same dimensions as the mock-up veneers. This greatly improves the predictability of the veneers ensuring we achieve the perfect result every time.
