What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are restorations that cover the outside surface of a tooth. They are usually made out of Ceramic/Porcelain and are ideal for teeth that are severely discoloured, chipped or misaligned, giving you a more uniform and natural looking smile.
Porcelain Veneers are ideal when you have:
i. Gaps in between your teeth
ii. Chipped or broken teeth
iii. Crooked or uneven teeth
iv. Discoloured teeth
v. Short or worn teeth
vi. Protruding or “goofy” teeth
vii. Twisted or rotated teeth
What are the benefits of this treatment?
The superior cosmetic results that can be achieved by having porcelain veneers as well as the fact that they can be done very conservatively minimising the damage to your teeth, makes them one of the most popular options for people looking for a natural looking smile.
- Porcelain veneers are used to correct problems with crooked or gappy teeth, avoiding the need for lengthy treatment with braces
- Cracked or broken teeth can be strengthened with a veneer
- Porcelain veneers create a brighter, whiter smile

Veneers: Before and After Examples
Porcelain veneer treatments are tailored to your exact requirements. We will ensure we understand your desires and expectations and work out a treatment plan with you.
At the first appointment, we take an impression or mould of your teeth in order to create a dental diagnostic wax-up model. We use this model to show you what your teeth and smile are going to look like before starting any dental work.
At your next appointment, we are ready to start work. We will minimally prepare your teeth to the ideal shape in preparation for your veneers. An impression or mould is taken of your prepared teeth. You will wear hand crafted temporary veneers, whilst your permanent veneers are being made.
We send your moulds together with the shade of your teeth to our highly skilled laboratory technician for your veneers to be made. Veneers are available in a wide choice of colours from Hollywood white to more natural tooth colours. The choice is yours.
You can “trial” your new smile and experience how your new teeth will look and feel. We can make any adjustments to your final veneers at this stage.
In the next appointment, we gently remove the temporary veneers. Your beautifully made porcelain veneers are bonded with special dental cement. We check the fit and how you bite to ensure a perfect fit.
