Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain /ceramic cemented over the front of your teeth(similar to contact lens of an eye) to change their color or shape. Little or no anesthesia is needed. Veneers have a longer life expectancy and colour stability than composite restoration, and highly resist permanent staining from coffee, tea or even cigarette smoking.
Veneers are usually made by a dental lab technician working from a model provided by the dentist. We ourselves have a state of art dental lab in the clinic office premises with highly qualified and artistic technicians. This enables us to make naturally appearing and pleasing veneers.
For veneering it's necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell. Typically veneers entail at least three steps:
During the tooth preparation visit , usually about a half a millimetre of the tooth enamel is removed to allow for the planned thickness of veneer. This may require a local anaesthetic. During the same visit, a mold is taken of the teeth, and sent to the laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers.
During the final “bonding” visit, the veneers are placed on the tooth surface with water or glycerine on the teeth to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or color. While the veneers are resting on your teeth, they can be adjusted with various shades of cement to match the color of your teeth.
