Looking for a cosmetic treatment to enhance the appearance of your teeth?
Porcelain veneers are an effective solution for teeth which have minor chips, cracks or are stained. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are bonded to the front of your teeth. Typically speaking, porcelain veneers are only placed on the front six upper and lower teeth.
The advantage of porcelain veneers is they are stain-resistant and can be colour-matched to your natural teeth. For patients who aren’t happy with the colour of their teeth we would recommend having a teeth whitening treatment because porcelain veneers cannot be altered by tooth whitening treatments.
Treatment time for porcelain veneers is generally two weeks. The first appointment is where we take moulds of your teeth and send that off to the lab. Then we prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel and placing temporary veneers while the porcelain ones are being fabricated. Your next appointment will take place when Westpoint Dental Clinic receives your porcelain veneers back from the lab. Your second appointment will be where we bond your porcelain veneers to your teeth, giving you a brighter, healthier looking smile.
