If you want to improve the appearance of your teeth that have been chipped or stained, our porcelain veneer is the solution you are looking for. Also known as dental veneer, this acts as a thin shell that will cover the surface of an otherwise damaged tooth. The improvement of the shape and color of each of your tooth will be immediate because the porcelain veneer will be bonded directly with adhesive cement.
You would normally spend 2-3 visits to our clinic for your porcelain veneer:
- First, we will discuss the procedure with our cosmetic dentist. At this point, you will have the opportunity to discuss how your final smile would look like. You can choose to bring samples of the ideal smile that you desire.
- On your second visit, a mould will be made and your teeth will be prepared for the dental veneer.
- On your final visit, the porcelain veneers that were designed specifically for you will be placed on your teeth.
