A simple change that makes a big difference

One of the most popular ways to achieve a beautiful smile is with veneers.

You no longer need to hide your smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth. With veneers, you can easily correct imperfections and be confident about your beautiful smile.

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells finely crafted and bonded to the front of a tooth. Receiving veneers will require two appointments; the first is to prepare the teeth for the veneers and the second to place them.

A small amount of tooth enamel is removed so when your veneers are placed your teeth still look completely natural. Then a detailed impression mould is made and sent to a dental technician who creates your veneers.

At your second appointment your veneers are checked for fit and comfort, any required adjustments are made before your veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth.

When placed, your veneers look like your natural surrounding teeth. Although extremely fine, porcelain veneers are quite strong, durable and stain resistant.

Composite veneers are made using a special white resin material that is coloured to the shade of your natural tooth enamel.

This type of dental veneer is usually used to fix small tooth imperfections like small chips or cracks in the teeth or as a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers. Composite veneers have the advantage and convenience of being in a single appointment visit.

The composite material is placed in layers and hardened by a special UV light. It is then sculpted to the perfect shape to blend seamlessly with your surrounding natural teeth.

With correct care and regular check-up appointments, your porcelain and composite veneers will enable you to enjoy a beautiful smile for many years.
