Porcelain Veneers for Stained, Decayed or Crooked Teeth

Many patients are not satisfied with their crooked, shorter or chipped, teeth. Other patients have multiple older composite (bonding) restorations that are worn down, decayed on the margins or heavily stained and discolored. The porcelain veneers offer a definitive solution and effectively rejuvenate the smile, in a fast and efficient manner.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain (like a contact lens) that cover the front surface of your teeth and look, feel, and function like your natural tooth. They esthetically improve the appearance of crooked, misaligned, chipped, or discolored teeth, rejuvenate and brighten the smile. Porcelain veneers will also restore fractured teeth due to trauma or accidents, and close diastema (gaps) between teeth.

Benefits Over Other Treatment Options

Porcelain veneers are ideal for those with broken down, discolored or crooked teeth, and they also have benefits over other treatments for tooth misalignment. For example, veneers:

  • Are more conservative compared with full coverage crowns (caps)

  • Definitively correct any discolorations, stains 

  • Close gaps (diastemas) between teeth

  • Correct chipped or irregularly shaped teeth

  • Faster treatment compared with Clear Aligners orthodontic movements 

  • Are stronger and longer lasting than dental bonding

How does the process work? 

Through the use of the most cutting edge Digital technology and Artificial Intelligence software (SmileCloud), the specialist Prosthodontist will redesign the smile to align it with the patient’s unique personality and style. The Digital Smile Design approach combined with physical mock-ups gives the patient a clear view of what the final outcome will be before even touching the teeth. Following the Artificial Intelligence generated Digital Smile Design and physical mock-up, the porcelain veneer treatment can commence and in just 2 appointments, porcelain veneers can provide you with your dream smile. 

Within 2 weeks time, a master ceramist will craft thin, contact lens-type porcelain veneers according to our specialist's specifications, that will be bonded to the front surface of your teeth. This in a non-surgical procedure. 

Long-lasting Results with Veneers

One of the best parts of porcelain veneers is their longevity. Cured and hardened through high temperatures, veneers are sturdy and resilient. Composite veneers, while less expensive, are less durable than their porcelain counterparts.

With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers should easily last 10 years. With meticulous care, your veneers can last up to 20 years. Wearing a night guard is also key to protect the veneers from bruxism (grinding and clenching).

How about the esthetics? Do veneers look fake? 

The new types of porcelains coupled with the Digital Smile Design and Artificial Intelligence software that are now used to design and fabricate the porcelain veneers ensure a lifelike and long-lasting outcome.

You will also be able to eat and enjoy all of your favorite foods since veneers are strong and are solidly adhered to your own enamel.
