Purity Dental offers porcelain veneers to mask discoloured, chipped, and crooked teeth to create your ideal smile.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front of teeth to improve cosmetic appearance. They are very technique-sensitive and specially designed to create your ideal smile. They are made from porcelain so they look and feel very natural, and can be done in a single visit or over a few visits.
At Purity Dental, we aim to provide the latest techniques and materials to carry out these procedures and restore confidence in every smile.
Porcelain veneers are bonded to the surface of teeth and are a long-term aesthetic solution.
Porcelain veneers are known for their strength and durability. Requiring little preparation of the teeth, they can be used to improve cosmetic appearance by masking discolouration, chipping, poorly-shaped or crooked teeth.
How are veneers applied?
Your dentist will minimally prepare the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer to sit flush on the tooth’s surface. Occasionally, a local anaesthetic is used during this part of the process.
Porcelain veneers are then designed and custom-made in-house or at a dental laboratory. After ensuring everything is correct, the tooth is cleaned and the veneer is cemented into place.
Am I a suitable candidate for veneers?
Most people are suitable candidates for dental veneers. Veneers are a cosmetic process, and will not correct severely misaligned teeth, overbites or underbites. Veneers also need healthy teeth to attach on. Any decay or gum disease must be treated prior to the attachment of veneers.
Some common reasons people may have veneers for their teeth:
- Close gaps between front teeth
- Improve shape and size of teeth
- Mask discoloured teeth
- Restore broken or chipped teeth
- Correct uneven, crooked, misaligned or irregular teeth
