Porcelain Veneers

Veneers – What’s the ‘Buzz’?

Porcelain VeneerPorcelain veneers are very thin shells of tooth coloured porcelain which can dramatically improve your smile (see pictures of an actual patient of mine below).

How is it done? – Usually (but not in all situations) a thin layer of enamel is removed from the front surface of your tooth (sometimes no more then 0.5mm i.e. the thickness of a pin) to make room for the new veneers. An impression is then taken of the prepared teeth and this is sent to a special ceramic laboratory who will then manufacture the veneers. At a second appointment the veneers are bonded (or “stuck”) onto the teeth and voila your new smile!!

Instead of porcelain, another material i.e. composite (or plastic) filling material can be used for veneers and even though it is less expensive I personally prefer to use porcelain as it has glass like smoothness and the colour stability in the long term is excellent.
