Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-coloured shells that we bond to the front surface of your tooth. Veneers are a great option as there is minimal tooth preparation required prior to the veneer being custom-made in a laboratory. Porcelain veneers are also very resistant to staining and chipping.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an extremely thin covering for your teeth that can change a tooth’s colour or shape, or to correct damage. As porcelain is translucent, it allows more light to pass through than any other dental material. It can mimic the natural colours and tones found in enamel, which means that porcelain veneers are perfect for making changes to discoloured or misshapen teeth.
Porcelain veneers should not be confused with dental bonding, which is another popular cosmetic treatment to improve the shape of your teeth. Where bonding uses composite resin as a filling material, porcelain veneers use porcelain as a cover, protecting the original tooth.
Porcelain veneers are extremely durable and will last for about ten years or longer, depending on your level of care and maintenance. To prolong the life of your dental veneers, ensure you are practising good oral hygiene that includes brushing twice daily, flossing, and visiting us for regular dental check-ups.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Porcelain veneers is a cosmetic dental procedure that adds to the surfaces of your teeth. The porcelain laminates provide a more even surface and cover imperfections such as discolouration, chips or pits. Porcelain veneers have become increasingly popular as they give you a natural-looking smile without the need for braces.
At Greenland Dental, our porcelain veneers procedure consists of the following:
During your consultation session, you will undergo a discussion with one of our dentists to cover everything you need to know about the porcelain veneers procedure. During this appointment, our dentists will also take X-rays and impressions of your mouth.
At your next appointment, temporary dental veneers will be placed on your tooth. This will give you a preview of the final design and allow you to make any necessary adjustments. Once satisfied with how they look, our dentists will prepare your teeth accordingly and take an impression on your mouth, and your custom-made porcelain veneers will be created in our dental lab.
In your final visit, your temporary teeth veneers will be removed, and the final porcelain veneers will be attached to your teeth. Once you have approved the look and feel, a special UV curing light is used to securely bond the dental veneers in place.
Once all three steps are completed, we’re sure you’ll love your rejuvenated smile. For more information on the porcelain veneers procedure at Greenland Dental, contact us today.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
At Greenland Dental, our philosophy centres on the belief that everyone should have access to premium dental care. To achieve that vision, we aim to keep our prices as low as possible. The price of dental restoration and other treatments varies from patient to patient, so we take into account a variety of factors including your oral health history, the severity of the issue, and any added procedures that need to be completed.
On average, the price of porcelain veneers treatment can range between $1000-1500 per tooth. However, this price is not fixed as the final cost will depend on the aesthetic features that a patient desires such as natural transparency, shading, and other factors.
