Porcelain Veneers to refresh your smile

Porcelain veneers are one of the most effective and popular restorative treatments your d-spa dentist may recommend to rejuvenate teeth with discolouration, chips and in some cases align crooked teeth to help create a beautiful smile.

Finely crafted from thin pieces of porcelain, dental veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth and are incredibly strong and durable. Dental veneers are an ideal solution for creating the look you have always wanted and are a more conservative option than a dental crown.

The procedure involves our d-spa dentist removing a minimal amount of tooth enamel by light buffing (usually ½mm) in preparation for the porcelain, which is sculptured and shaped to improve or straighten your natural smile. A colour or shade match is agreed upon so that the porcelain veneers blend effortlessly in with your natural teeth.

During the interim, our dentist will place a temporary veneer to create a blueprint for your new smile. Once the preparation for the veneer is complete, another appointment 2 weeks after is scheduled to secure the porcelain veneer into place.

Usually a nightguard (splint) is recommended for people with signs of grinding and it is essential to wear a sports mouthguard for playing any contact sports to protect your veneered and natural teeth.

Optimal oral health will significantly contribute to the success and longevity of your new veneers and regular appointments with the d-spa team will help keep your new veneers healthy for the long term.
