Porcelain veneers are also known as dental laminates. They are porcelain faces placed on your teeth, eliminating tooth defects, hiding crevices between your teeth and correcting the shape of your teeth. Aligning and changing the colour of your tooth, veneers mimic the translucent properties of your normal tooth enamel. We want your smile to look natural therefore we match the colour of the veneers to the shade of your adjacent teeth. No one will detect the difference between your regular teeth and the veneers.
Veneers will give you an aesthetically pleasing smile that shines on for years.
There are two types of veneers out there, composite resin and ceramic (better known as porcelain). Composite resin is fast setting and can be done in one appointment whereas porcelain veneers take two appointments for the process to complete. Be careful with what you eat and drink as composite resin is slightly porous making it easy to stain. It is a good idea to stay away from teas and soy sauces that are likely to cause more of a stain on your beautiful white veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a good choice for you if you want to have a natural look and feel to your teeth. We glaze your porcelain veneers in an oven to achieve the same texture and visual appearance as your natural tooth enamel. These veneers are very durable and can withstand chipping and cracking, lasting decades if cared for correctly like your real teeth.
