Secret to the Hollywood Smile

Dental veneers are the secret to the Hollywood smile. If you’re unhappy with the colour, shape or position of your teeth; dental veneers may just be what you’re looking for. From mechanics to movie stars, the smiles of people around the world have been amplified by the addition of porcelain veneers.

What Are Dental Veneers

Also known as dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates, dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain (lithium disilicate, also known as e.Max). Your teeth may also be veneered with a composite (plastic) material that comes at a lower cost.

Dental Veneers require minimal removal of tooth structure and preserve most of your natural teeth. Dental veneers mask the imperfections present on your natural teeth, while still being able to closely mimic nature to give you a naturally beautiful smile.

Why Consider Porcelain Veneers?

Perhaps the principal reason you should consider porcelain veneers is that they restore your teeth to their natural appearance. Also, your surrounding gum tissue typically reacts favorably to the porcelain material used in veneers. Porcelain veneers are also an accelerated solution for correcting your smile, as they are applied to your teeth over just a few visits.

What Problems Can Dental Veneers Solve?

Veneers are able to resolve dental imperfections such as:
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolouration
  • Chipped teeth
  • Asymmetrical smile
  • Misshapen teeth
  • “Hidden” smiles
  • Anterior teeth with large and discoloured fillings
  • Mildly crooked teeth

Am I Suitable For Porcelain Veneers?

Many people may benefit from porcelain veneers, but they aren’t for everyone. For the best possible results, you must have healthy teeth and gums, and you must commit to regular care and maintenance, both at home and at periodic visits to your dentist. As porcelain veneers are permanent and require modification to your existing teeth, you must have a specific amendment to your smile in mind, and you must be prepared to commit to a permanent change.

Porcelain Veneers Procedure

01

First visit and treatment discussion

Both a treatment coordinator as well as the consulting dentist will see you on the first visit. Together with a dental examination and a full set of intra-oral photographs, we take a deep dive into your needs and concerns. This evaluation shall determine your suitability, and also manage your expectations of what lies within the realm of possibility with dental veneers.

02

The trial smile

In certain cases with extensive restorations, a trial smile will be performed to give you an idea of the final outcome. A thin layer of plastic will be temporarily placed over your existing teeth without any preparation. This will give you an immediate impression of the shape, colour and overall aesthetic of the actual veneers. These “temporary veneers” will then be removed on the same visit.

03

Preparation of teeth

The front surface of your teeth will be prepared to accommodate the dental veneers. This procedure is usually performed under local anaesthesia and is painless. You will go home with a set of temporary veneers that should mimic the outcome of your final veneers.

04

Issue of veneers

The temporary veneers will be removed. Prior to final bonding of the veneers, you will first determine if you are satisfied with the aesthetic of the veneers. The surface of your teeth will be cleansed thoroughly prior to bonding with one of a selection of special cements that best complements the translucency and colour of the veneers.

05

Review of veneers

You will be asked to come back for a review shortly after the issue of veneers to resolve any functional or aesthetic issues that you may have found.

06

Final Touch-up

A final touch up and polished is performed before you are set to show off your Hollywood smile to the world.

Porcelain Veneers faq

While porcelain veneers are a suitable accessory for correcting a wide variety of issues with your smile, it is necessary to understand the possible disadvantages and risks that may come with the procedure.

Porcelain veneers will require permanent modification to your teeth. A small portion of your tooth is going to be removed to provide a surface for affixing the porcelain veneers, and this removal cannot be reversed.
Porcelain veneers are more expensive than other methods of smile repair, including composite resin bonding.

Porcelain veneers may be difficult to repair. Though a chip in a veneer may be replaced, the color may not exactly match the existing veneer.

You may experience sensitivity for several weeks or months after your porcelain veneers are affixed, but most people report that such sensitivity eventually fades unless other complications existed prior to receiving the veneers.

Though your dentist will do his best to match the color of your veneers with your existing teeth, an exact match is not guaranteed, and the color of the veneer cannot be changed once it is made and affixed.

Porcelain veneers can be damaged, especially when chewing on hard substances. Night time teeth grinding can also permanently damage veneers, so be sure to talk to your dentist about solutions for this if you believe you grind your teeth.

People with preexisting dental problems may also experience issues with porcelain veneers. Gum disease, advanced decay, significant previous dental work, and other major dental problems may make affixing porcelain veneers extremely difficult or even impossible, so a thorough check of your teeth and gums before moving forward with porcelain veneers is essential.
