Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and colour) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful
and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
Indications to have porcelain veneers:
Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
Crooked and mis-shapen teeth.
Severely discoluored or stained teeth.
To address teeth that are too small or large.
To address Unwanted or uneven spaces.
To address worn or chipped teeth.
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting veneers usually requires two-to-three visits to complete the process, with little or no anaesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mould or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (colour) will then be chosen by Dr Darfoor and you.
On the next visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
