Veneers are thin shells of porcelain. They are used to cover teeth that are discoloured, worn, chipped, or misaligned.
Veneers can make your teeth straighter and brighter in as few as two visits, giving you an amazing smile makeover. The results may be compared to instant orthodontics.
Porcelain veneers are a strong and durable treatment that can last ten to fifteen years and sometimes longer. They do not discolor or stain as easily as composite bondings, which make them an ideal treatment.
- At the first appointment, the dentist will shape and roughen the surface of the teeth.
- The dentist will then make and cement temporary veneers for the prepared teeth.
- At the next appointment the dentist will remove the temporary veneers, will clean and polish the prepared teeth.
- The dentist will then apply a special adhesive and will permanently bond the porcelain veneers to the teeth using a high-intensity light.
