Porcelain laminate veneers custom crafted, very thin facing that is sealed permanently to the front of your teeth. They are a popular choice for people whose teeth are chipped, small, discoloured or have gaps between them. They allow us to alter tooth position, shape, size and colour for a natural-looking enhancement to your smile.
They require two visits – one for preparation and then another visit for the veneer to be fitted. The first visit involves the initial removal of a minimal amount of tooth enamel (0.5mm), to enable the very precise alignment of the veneer to the surrounding tooth and the gum. A mould is taken, then the dentist will discuss with you the shape and shade of white to choose, then it is sent to the laboratory for fabrication (this takes approximately two weeks). The second visit is the very careful and precise fitting of the veneer to your tooth, which is permanently bonded into place. The result is a smile that is flawless and natural.
