Dental veneers also referred to as porcelain veneers or dental porcelains are simply a thin covering placed on a patient’s existing teeth. This covering is made out of porcelain, hence the term porcelain veneers.
With advancements in dental technology, ultra thin veneers measuring 1mm – 0.3mm is now possible. With correct colour matching, the results can almost instantaneously transform the appearance of the patient’s smile. As such, it’s one of the most popular dental procedures.
Dental veneers are specifically tailored to each patient’s teeth. Therefore, the thickness of the veneer depends on a host of factors varying with each patient’s tooth formation and specific needs.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for patients who would like to correct discolouration of their teeth, especially heavy stains that do not lighten even with professional tooth whitening.
It takes a skilled dental surgeon to ensure your veneers look as natural as possible. Also, it is crucial that underlying dental issues are effectively addressed.
