Veneers are hand made by our technicians and layered by porcelain for a flawless smile. Organise a free consultation and we will discuss all of the options with you.
Surgical Treatment Options
Consultation and treatment planning
The dentist will assess your oral health, examine your teeth, and take impressions or digital scans to create a customised treatment plan. Together, you will determine the desired shape, colour, and size of your veneers to achieve the desired outcome.
Preparation of teeth
A small amount of enamel is carefully removed from the front surface of the teeth receiving veneers. This is to ensure a proper fit and placement of the veneers. The dentist will then take impressions of your prepared teeth and send them to a dental laboratory, where your veneers will be custom-crafted to match your desired specifications.
Temporary veneers and fabrication
While your permanent veneers are being created, temporary veneers may be placed to protect your prepared teeth and provide you with an aesthetic smile during the waiting period. The dental laboratory will use the impressions to fabricate your veneers, meticulously crafting them to match the shape, size, and colour discussed during the consultation.
Bonding and final placement
Once your permanent veneers are ready, you will return for the final appointment. The dentist will remove the temporary veneers and check the fit, colour, and appearance of the permanent veneers. If necessary, minor adjustments can be made. The dentist will then carefully bond the veneers to your teeth using a special dental adhesive. The veneers will be securely attached, and any excess adhesive will be removed. The dentist will evaluate your bite and make final refinements to ensure optimal comfort and aesthetics.

Aftercare for Veneers
Keep good oral hygiene
Remember to brush regularly with a soft toothbrush in a circular way to avoid the accumulation of bacterial plaque.
Have regular checkups
Regular professional cleaning can help remove surface stains and plaque buildup that can cause discolouration and damage to your veneers. Additionally, professional cleanings can help to identify any issues or damage to your veneers early on, allowing your dentist to address them promptly and prevent further harm.
Don’t clench your teeth
Try not to clench your teeth, sometimes we do it involuntarily, but doing so can cause our veneers to chip, so be careful when eating certain hard or sticky foods, to avoid any damage or break.
Boost your smile to the next level
Why choose porcelain veneers?
Veneers should not lose colour or shine over time, they can remain their colour if you avoid the ingestion of highly coloured foods or tobacco, which can end up affecting them in time.
Durable and long-lasting option
With a proper care, veneers can last for a long time. Porcelain is a durable material that is resistant to stains, scratches, and discolouration.
The bonding process used to attach the veneers is designed to create a strong and durable bond between the veneer and the tooth so it lasts longer.
When eating you have to be careful trying to cut food with other teeth. You should not use your teeth to cut or open objects and if you have a bad habit of biting your nails, you must eradicate it completely.
If you’re someone who grinds their teeth at night we highly recommend having a splint (nightguard) made to prevent damage being done during the night, and ensure the longevity of the veneers.
Avoid tobacco and sugary drinks
Tobacco yellows teeth by itself, and exactly the same thing can happen with veneers, so it’s better to avoid it. Try not to abuse some drinks with colouring, coffee, tea and drinks such as wine, juices and dark soft drinks, since these drinks will accelerate the discolouration process and they will stain your dental veneers.
Porcelain versus composite resin
Porcelain veneers and composite resin veneers are both types of veneers that are used to improve the appearance of teeth, but the main difference is the material.
- Made from high-quality dental ceramic materials.
- Typically stronger and more durable than composite veneers.
- Custom-made and personalised to match the colour, shape, and size of the patient’s natural teeth
- Generally more expensive than composite veneers.
- Require two appointments to have placed (First appointment to prepare the teeth, take measurements and create the veneers; The second appointment to bond them to the teeth)
- Made from a tooth-coloured resin material.
- Typically less expensive than porcelain veneers.
- Can be placed in a single appointment.
- Less durable and may require more maintenance over time.
- Can be repaired or touched up easily if they become damaged.
- Not as customisable as porcelain veneers, but still offer the ability to improve the appearance of the teeth, they are usually use on dental bonding.
