What Are Dental Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance, covering imperfections and creating a natural-looking, beautiful smile.

Technicians create veneers from layers and layers of fine dental porcelain. The final product is about as thick as a fingernail. It is then bonded to a prepared tooth surface. To guarantee natural results and a solid bond, a small amount of tooth enamel is removed prior to veneer placement.

With just a few of visits, veneers can:

  • Whiten your teeth: Do you have pesky coffee stains? This will help conceal them.
  • Establish consistent tooth shape: Veneers will even the length of your teeth.
  • Mask chips and breaks: Veneers are the perfect solution to mask a chipped tooth.
  • Improve your smile: After just a couple of visits, your smile will look better than ever.

When you invest in a new smile, you’ll notice benefits that you never thought possible. If you’ve been considering improving your smile come see us at Smile Place Dental.

Dental Veneer Procedure

A dental veneer procedure generally requires at least 2 to 3 visits:

Visit 1: Consultation and Oral Examination: Diagnosis and treatment plan are the first step involving discussion with our friendly dentists. During this appointment our dentists will examine your teeth to make sure dental veneers are appropriate for you and discuss the working procedures, time-frames, limitations, expected results of the final works, and costs.

Visit 2: Teeth preparation: To prepare a tooth for veneers, our dentists at Smile Place Dental will remove part of the tooth’s enamel surface. Before trimming off the enamel, you and your dentist will decide the need for a local anaesthetic.

Then, our dentist will make a model or impression of your tooth. This model is sent out to a dental laboratory, which in turn constructs your veneer. It usually takes around 4-6 days for your dentist to receive the veneers back from the laboratory. In this visit, a temporary dental veneer will be made. That way, you will have no problems smiling and eating while waiting for permanent veneers.

Visit 3: Veneer Placement: Our dentists will apply a special cement to the veneer and the veneer is then placed on your tooth. Then, our dentist will remove any excess cement, evaluating your bite and make adjustments to the veneer if necessary. In some cases, our dentist will ask a follow-up visit for post check up to evaluate the comfort and function of your veneer.

Benefits Of Porcelain Dental Veneers

  • Porcelain veneers closely mimic the appearance of your natural teeth, contributing to a life-like smile.
  • They offer customisation in terms of shape and colour, allowing patients to influence their aesthetic outcome.
  • Porcelain veneers are more durable and have superior stain resistance, providing a consistently bright smile.
  • In contrast to composite resin, the complete process for porcelain veneers may require up to three dental visits but their longevity means you can smile confidently without concerns.

Porcelain veneers are particularly suitable for patients with intensely discoloured or stained teeth, misshapen or short front teeth, or those seeking cosmetic improvements to their smile.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from porcelain or composite materials. They are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance, covering imperfections such as stains, chips, or misalignment, and creating a natural-looking, flawless smile.

Are dental veneers permanent?

While dental veneers are considered a long-lasting solution, they are not entirely permanent. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, porcelain veneers can last around 10-15 years, and composite veneers generally have a lifespan of 5-7 years before needing replacement.

How are dental veneers applied?

The dental veneer procedure typically involves three steps. First, the dentist will prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate the veneers. Next, impressions of the teeth are taken to create custom veneers. Finally, the veneers are bonded to the teeth using dental cement, resulting in a transformed and natural-looking smile.


Do dental veneers require special care?

Dental veneers do not require special care, but it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene practices. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are necessary to ensure the longevity of your veneers. Avoid using your teeth for tasks like opening packages or biting hard objects, and refrain from biting on very hard or sticky foods.

Can anyone get dental veneers?

Dental veneers are suitable for many individuals with cosmetic dental concerns. However, a thorough dental examination is necessary to determine if you are a suitable candidate. Generally, patients with good oral health, sufficient tooth enamel, and realistic expectations for the outcome can benefit from dental veneers.
