Porcelain Veneers

With our Cerec Cad/Cam machine we can produce your porcelain veneers in a single visit.

Our aim is to provide you with the most appropriate treatment options to ensure a lasting smile.

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured custom made shells fixed onto the front of your teeth. This can be a suitable option if you have teeth with gaps, that are stained, discoloured, broken or chipped, crowded-in or crooked, oddly-shaped or badly-aligned.

There are two different types of veneers; composite or porcelain . The key difference between the two is the material used.

Composite veneers are relatively easy to apply with very little tooth preparation and can be completed in one visit . They are more cost effective then the porcelain veneers.

The disadvantage of composite veneers is that they are not as strong and durable and long-lasting as the porcelain veneers. They also don’t mimic the translucency or characterisation of natural tooth enamel resulting in poorer aesthetics.

Porcelain veneers are used to create the perfect smile. They are more durable and stronger then composite veneers. They require less maintenance and offer superior aesthetics.

What is involved in getting veneers?

The treatment process is as follows, we first take intra oral photographs and impressions of your mouth and have a wax up/model of your proposed veneers made up by a lab technician.

After viewing the proposed model we then prepare the teeth for veneers taking a small amount of enamel away for the veneer to adhere to the tooth.

Then we take a digital impression of your teeth using our Cerec Omnicam machine. No need for the dreaded putty impressions.

With our Cerec omnicam we then have the choice of manufacturing and inserting your veneers on the same day or have the digital impression send via computer to our lab technician, who will take 2 weeks to manufacture your veneers.

In the two week period temporary veneers will be placed on your teeth, which will then be removed at your veneer insert appointment.
