What really is a porcelain veneer
Porcelain veneers are used to make teeth look healthy as well as looking natural. Because the veneer itself is actually very thin and held in place by a strong bond, it means that preparation of the tooth is at a minimal level.
The veneer fits around the front surface of the tooth and matches the surrounding teeth in colour so they are invisible.

The decision of porcelain veneers has many questions – it is always good to do your research before getting them.
In the list below, there will be a section of the most frequently asked questions and their answers.
Q: How pain free is the treatment?
A: The treatment for porcelain veneers can be carried out with no or minimal tooth preparation – so no drilling and injections are required, therefore the treatment is pain free.
Q: What veneer is most suitable for me?
A: To discover what is most suited, a free consultation needs to happen where a discussion of needs takes place. Dentists will make sure you understand all the possibilities.
Depending on the needs of your teeth, a tailor made treatment plan can be designed to suit your needs and budget. It will either be laser fabricated composite veneer or porcelain veneer.
Bite Analysis technology is used to ensure a long lasting, comfortable and a healthy final result.
Q: What is the maintenance that is required?
A: It is recommended that a regular hygiene treatment is taken place every 6 months, for those with gum disease it is every 3 months.
We also recommend an annual examination to check the veneers and to reassess your bite.
