What are Veneers and How Do I Know If I Need Them?

Veneers are custom-made thin shells of porcelain designed to fit over the front surfaces of teeth to improve their appearance. Once bonded into place, dental veneers look beautiful and are strong and durable.

You may wish to consider veneers to correct any of the following problems.

  • Discolouration
  • Teeth that are irregularly shaped or worn down
  • Cracks or chips in your teeth
  • Unsightly spaces in between your teeth
  • Teeth that are slightly misaligned

Our dentist will assess your teeth and can discuss your aims and desires to determine how many veneers are required. Next, your teeth are prepared using local anaesthetic to keep you comfortable. It’s necessary to remove approximately 0.5 mm of tooth enamel which is about the same thickness as a veneer. Once your teeth are carefully shaped, a detailed dental impression is taken of your teeth, so your veneers can be handcrafted in the dental laboratory. At this stage we can place temporary veneers on your teeth to protect them. Once your porcelain veneers are completed, they are fitted in the mouth and are bonded firmly in place. You will then be ready to show your beautiful new smile to the world.

Smilexcellence currently has a smile makeover special offer where you can have 6 porcelain veneers for just $3499.
