Ceramic/Porcelain veneers are thin custom-made ceramic shells used to cover the front surface of a tooth. They improve the colour, shape and overall appearance. Porcelain veneers are durable and create a very natural aesthetic.
- Gaps between teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Chipped or hairline fractured teeth
- Root canal treated front teeth
- Poorly shaped or crooked front teeth
There is more time involved with preparing the porcelain veneers. Preparation of the tooth is minimal however, to make the porcelain veneers, impressions need to be sent to the dental laboratory, which is about a 2-week processing time.
When the veneers are returned, they are checked in the mouth for fit and colour before being cemented in place permanently.
