Preserving your natural tooth

Porcelain Veneers

A dental veneer is a thin layer of custom-made porcelain which fits over the front of the tooth. Veneers not only restore your teeth in the most beautiful and natural-like appearance but also ensure longevity of the restorations. 

They are gold standard in aesthetic dentistry as they provide maximum and long-term aesthetics, and help improve the look of your smile providing a very natural tooth appearance.

Dental veneers mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth and the characteristics of tooth enamel incredibly well as they can be made very thin and translucent. The treatment does involve some dental preparation, although this is very conservative and kept within the enamel. 

Restoring teeth that are worn

Designing Your Beautiful Veneers

Careful planning is provided along with extensive discussions to understand our patients expectations. 

We work closely with our dental technicians who fabricate the veneers following to the approved smile design.

Our patients have the opportunity of visualizing what the veneers could look like and approve the appearance before any irreversible treatment is carried out. 

We use wax ups on the models of the teeth which are then transferred to the mouth with a mock up made with temporary material that allows us and most importantly the patient, to see what the ideal size, shape and position is necessary. It also allows us to check the bite and make sure the final veneers need minimal adjustments. 

Retaining Your Tooth Structure

Minimal Preparation

Porcelain veneers are a conservative way of restoring severely worn or damaged teeth. They allow to preserve as much dental structure as possible preventing further wear or damage to natural teeth.
