Porcelain Veneers

Completely reshape your teeth for a beautiful, white smile.

The Problem:

  • Stained or discoloured teeth
  • Gaps between front teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Rough or jagged edges on front teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or large in proportion to rest of the mouth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Worn teeth

The Solution:
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that covers the front of each tooth. They bond directly to the front of the tooth, similar to the way artificial fingernails work. Each porcelain veneer is a work of art, carefully crafted in a laboratory to fit your individual smile.

Advantages:
In the hands of a highly skilled dentist, porcelain veneers can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.

Disadvantages:
Although they are highly durable, porcelain veneers are not permanent. Well crafted veneers will last many years, but will eventually need to be replaced.

Alternatives:
Porcelain veneers are an excellent investment. However, they are not appropriate for teeth with excessive decay, several fillings or teeth which are more filling than tooth. In those cases, porcelain crowns are the best alternative. Orthodontic treatment may be best alternative if you want to improve the alignment or correct crowding of the anterior teeth.
