Porcelain Veneers are one of the most effective and popular ways to achieve a perfect smile. These veneers are thin, tooth coloured porcelain (ceramic), which bond to the tooth surface to cover the front of your teeth and enhance your smile. Most porcelain veneers require preparation of the tooth surface, but in some special cases a “zero preparation” veneer could be used. The veneer is carefully crafted by a dental laboratory to create a custom tooth to the shape and colour of your liking, and can be exactly matched to the colour of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can completely reshape your smile. They are a more conservative option than a complete crown, are an ideal solution to close gaps, straighten crooked teeth, repair chips and cover permanent stains.
Once the porcelain veneers are fitted, just like a crown, they require optimal and regular at home oral hygiene care, as well as comprehensive check-up and clean every 6 months with your dentist. If veneers are not taken care of decay can creep under the veneer, which will lead to loss of your veneer.
