Porcelain Veneers

Perfect architecture, tooth by tooth

Porcelain Veneers

The most commonly used cosmetic dentistry technique is porcelain veneers. These are coverings created in a dental laboratory to the exact size of an area that is prepared on the tooth. This method involves shaving away a tiny part of the tooth to ensure that the porcelain does not appear excessively thick. Many actors, TV presenters and models use this technique. It is a highly evolved and extremely effective procedure, correcting imperfections and visibly improving the appearance of the tooth permanently and in a simple fashion. Application of a veneer or crown will depend on the preparation of the tooth, as it is not always possible to shave away the required minimal area. In cases where the tooth is already considerably damaged or worn away, crowns will be fitted using the same technology and material as veneers. These are pieces that are attached to the tooth and once in place, are almost as resistant as enamel.

Procedure

Once he has studied your teeth and assessed your case, the specialist will shave away the area to be treated and take an impression of your teeth by applying silicone dough. The laboratory will then use this impression to create veneers that match your exact needs.
Patients are usually required to wear temporary veneers for several weeks until the finished veneers are fitted.
