What Are Porcelain Veneers?
The porcelain veneer is an extremely thin covering for your teeth that can change a tooth’s colour or shape or correct damage. As porcelain is translucent, it allows more light to pass through than any other dental material. It can mimic all the natural colours 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, another popular cosmetic treatment involving porcelain products. Where bonding uses porcelain 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 a good oral hygiene routine that consists of brushing twice daily, flossing, and attaining regular check-ups from your dentist.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure that smooths out the surfaces of teeth. The porcelain laminates provide a more even surface and cover imperfections, such as discolouration, chips or pits. They have been making porcelain veneers popular for years because 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 diagnosis and consultation session, you will undergo a discussion with one of our dentists, covering 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 take an impression on your temporary dental veneers, 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, you will be able to enjoy a rejuvenated smile. For more information on the porcelain veneers procedure at Greenland Dental, contact us today.
