Originally used to temporarily improve the appearance of actors’ smiles on screen, veneers are now a long-term cosmetic solution for improving the appearance of a stained, decayed, cracked or chipped tooth. They can also close small unsightly gaps in-between your teeth.
Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain which are placed and cemented over the top of a tooth, improving its appearance and protecting it from further damage, decay and staining. Here at InnovaDent Dental Clinic, we like to think of veneers as a craft, and take pride in creating a restoration that’s totally in harmony with your smile and facial aesthetic.
We consider and evaluate the characteristics that make your teeth unique, and seek to emulate these when making your veneer, to achieve the most authentic finish possible. Porcelain is an almost identical translucency to real tooth enamel and imitates its subtly to an unparalleled degree. It’s for this reason that veneers are considered one of the great treatments for improving the aesthetic of an unattractive or widely spaced tooth.
You can expect the veneers process to take at least 2 appointments. The stages involved include:
Examination: we will examine the affected tooth and outline how veneers can address the given problem.
Smile design: the design of your veneer is carefully planned, by taking 3D photographs of your teeth, so we achieve the optimum shape, shade and thickness.
Preparation: a small amount of tooth enamel is removed, to accommodate the veneer.
Fitting: once your veneer has been made in the dental lab and returned to the practice, we will fit it using a strong adhesive.
