Porcelain Veneers​


What are Porcelain Veneers?

A veneer is a layer made out of specific materials that are placed over a tooth to fix certain cosmetic issues, they also help to protect the tooth’s surface from damage. Porcelain veneers specifically are colourless and aesthetic veneers made from harmless thin ceramic materials. It is one of the best types of veneers because they are made to resemble the natural color of teeth. Porcelain veneers can last for 10 to 30 years when properly taken care of because they are highly durable. The procedure is pain-free and does not require you to have a lot of visits and appointments.

One of the reasons why people visit the dentist is because they are not confident about their smile. There are many possible reasons behind this situation and porcelain veneers can be a great situation in most cases. They will help people by correcting their misaligned, chipped, yellow or crooked teeth and allow them to regain their self-esteem in order to flash that beautiful smile once again.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

We recommend white fillings to patients who have cavities or tooth decay and wish for an inconspicuous and safe treatment.

Natural Appearance

Porcelain veneers are often created based on the dentist’s impression of your teeth because they are made to feel and look natural. Our expert cosmetic dentist contours and colors the porcelain shell to match the color of your natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers have a ceramic covering as a protective layer to hide cracked and stained teeth.

Our expert cosmetic dentist also makes slight changes to the porcelain veneers by removing any excess materials. Porcelain veneers are custom-made for you to fit over your teeth most naturally.

Natural Appearance


Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that they are durable and can last very long under proper care. The veneers are stain resistant and protect natural teeth from discoloration and stains. Although these veneers are designed to last a long time, it is vital to be conscious of what you eat and maintain good oral hygiene. If you constantly bite hard food, such as ice chips or hard candies, the veneers can chip.

Porcelain Veneers are Low Maintenance 

Taking proper care of the porcelain veneers, just like you do with your natural teeth, is vital. Keeping up with the daily routine will help maintain the white shine of the veneers. Ensure you brush at least twice a day while flossing daily to reduce the buildup of tartar and plaque.

Trimming the Tooth

Trimming the tooth is the first step involved in getting porcelain veneers. The cosmetic dentist will check the tooth for any signs of decay and trim it off before some other areas. Tooth trimming involves the removal of some old fillings to adjust the enamel for proper veneer placement.

It is advisable for the patient to have a new filling that is not more than two weeks old before the procedure. Having a new filling will help to make a good bond between the filling and the porcelain.


Determining the Shade for the Veneer

After trimming the tooth, the dentist will check the colour of your surrounding teeth to determine the best colour of porcelain veneer shade. Also, the dentist will determine the regions of the laminae that should be either more or less translucent.


Bonding the Veneer on the Tooth

Once the procedure is over, everything fits perfectly and is in place, the dentist can then bond the veneer to the teeth.


Apply a Temporary Veneer if Needed

The patients can use a temporary veneer pending the time the porcelain veneers are ready. It often takes seven to fourteen days for the porcelain veneers to be ready,


Making the Teeth Impression

Teeth impressions help to give the dentist an image of your gums and how to proceed with the veneers. It is a process that involves the application of a paste-like substance that is thick on the teeth. To make the impression, the patients bite down on a tray to lock an impression of the teeth.
