Procedure of Porcelain Veneers:

Having dental veneers placed will require a few visits to the dental suites. This will start with a consultation to help you decide the right options for your requirements. During this appointment, your dental professional will also examine your overall oral hygiene and the condition of your teeth to determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental veneers. In some cases, additional corrective treatments may be necessary before the veneers are placed.

Smile Design software may also be used to help you see what the finished results will look like before any actual work begins.

Once the dentist is happy with the health of your teeth, the next step will be to prepare the surfaces of your teeth to accept the veneers. Your teeth and gums will be numbed with local anaesthetic and a thin layer of the front surface of the teeth will be removed. Impressions will be taken of your teeth and sent to a lab where the veneers will be manufactured.

The final veneers normally take one to three weeks to be completed, so in the mean time, patients will have temporary veneers placed over their teeth to protect the exposed tooth and hide the work.

During the waiting period, your dentist may advise avoiding certain foods that could cause the temporary veneers to come off – like sticky sweets. Foods and drinks that are very hot or cold could also cause sensitivity.

When the final veneers are ready, you’ll return to the dentist to have them permanently bonded to your teeth. Before cementing the veneers in place, your dentist will hold each one up to your teeth to determine whether they are an appropriate colour and make any small adjustments to the shape so that they fit in your mouth just right.

The Options Available at Our Clinic

Veneers are very thin and can be made from porcelain or resin composites. Both materials have their benefits – porcelain is better at resisting stains and reflects light in a similar manner to natural teeth. They usually last between five and ten years before needing to be replaced.

Meanwhile, composite veneers are much thinner, meaning that less of your natural tooth surface will need to be removed. However, they typically need to be replaced every two years or so.

There are also a number of specialist veneer brands. For example, Emax, Da Vinci and Durathin are three companies that manufacture high-end porcelain veneer products using patented materials. These veneers can be made much thinner and stronger than other types and can be fitted without having to ‘shave’ away any of the natural tooth – making the process faster, safer and less painful.
