They are primarily bonded to enamel so that makes them a very conservative option for changing the smile. The porcelain is also non-porous so will not discolour with time. With Porcelain veneers, you can have the smile you want. The teeth can be re-shaped, and re-coloured with a great deal of artistic latitude. There are limitations to the material and we will share with you as far as your individual case is concerned, and choose the best option just for you.
The first step in designing a whole new smile for you is to listen. We take time to understand you, how you feel about your smile, the personality you want to project, and how much you want to spend. We then will design a smile for you taking into consideration what we have learnt that you want and do a "mock-up" of your smile on models taken of your teeth. You can see what results are achievable before we start. We will take into account your facial features, complexion, face shape and proportions and lip lines.
The preparation for veneers takes few appointments. The first step is to give attention to the health of your gums. For quality workmanship, your gums need to be at their optimum state of health. This means that you have to have regular dental cleaning followed by good home care.
