No belle of the ball is complete without a glistening, pearly-white smile. Many factors can contribute to unsightly teeth, leaving them stained or discoloured, but the solution is simple, affordable and very effective. Porcelain veneers are very strong and durable thin shells that are placed over the natural teeth to give the illusion of a healthier, brighter smile.
Why choose porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are useful for covering up a number of dental issues. The simple process of masking an unpleasant tooth with a veneer eliminates the need for more lengthy and costly procedures and treatments. Veneers are ideal for covering up:
- A chipped tooth
- Gaps in the teeth
- Teeth broken by trauma
- Discoloured or rotted teeth
- Stained teeth
How does it work?
The process is very simple and often only requires two visits to the dentist. The first visit consists of a check-up, where your dentist or orthodontist can assess the damage and decide which teeth need veneers. During this same visit, a mould is taken of the teeth for the veneers to be made at a laboratory. In the meantime, temporary veneers are offered as a short-term solution until the proper veneers are ready. This usually takes around seven days.
During the second visit, the temporary veneers are removed and the custom made porcelain veneers are ready to be fitted. Some teeth may need to be altered before veneers are fitted, but the result is a natural, beautiful smile that – with good oral health – can last for up to fifteen years!
