Porcelain Veneers

At Your Dental Care we provide porcelain veneers for are an effective, simple and fast method of creating gorgeous smiles.

Sufferers of chipped, stained or misaligned teeth can benefit from veneers for a look that is natural and requires minimal tooth alteration.

Veneers are thin layers of porcelain which cover the front of the teeth, essentially like a false nail sitting on top of the natural nail. Porcelain is used because it provides a strong, natural looking appearance to the teeth.

This treatment makes the teeth look aesthetically pleasing and natural, and because they are so thin and placed on the tooth using a strong bonding treatment, there is minimal alteration to the natural teeth.

Veneers made of porcelain are able to enhance the look of the teeth’s colour, contour and appearance. We have found porcelain to be the most durable and natural looking substance to replicate natural teeth.

The exact shade of white porcelain can be chosen beforehand to fit in with the rest of the teeth, whether it is to treat only one stained tooth or to brighten the teeth at the front of the mouth (usually the top ones).

Veneers can also be used to fill in small gaps between teeth, altering their shape and size when braces cannot be used. Many people believe that they are only used to offer a whiter than white smile, but they are also regularly used in the treatment of gaps, minor misalignments and stained teeth.

If a single tooth is slightly misaligned a veneer can help to bring it back into the natural line once again. On occasion patients prefer to have a veneer because they do not take long to apply and effectively hide the problem - rather than spending a long period of time having braces treatment that may be painful and time consuming.
