Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a non-invasive treatment, and are a relatively quick way to enhance the natural look of your smile.

As the name suggests, porcelain veneers are a porcelain tooth-shaped shell that is bonded to the surface of the tooth. The porcelain material is strong and durable making it an ideal option for long-lasting results, if taken care of properly.

These types of veneers have a proven track record for creating a perfect and aesthetically pleasing smile. A National Dental Care dentist will fully examine your teeth and take x-rays beforehand to make sure the teeth underneath are suitable for this type of treatment. If you decide to proceed, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth which is then sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be made - this can take up to two weeks.

When discussing the potential cosmetic options with your National Dental Care dentist, you may also consider the alternative of composite veneers.

FAQ

It usually takes at least two appointments to attach a porcelain veneer. At the first appointment, your dentist prepares the tooth to create a proper texture for smooth application. Then an impression of the tooth is made and sent to the lab, or sometimes a digital scan is taken, and the veneer is made on the same day. If two appointments are required, the dentist installs a temporary veneer, which you wear until the lab manufactures a permanent one. This could take up to two weeks. Once your porcelain veneer is ready, you'll need visit your dentist again for the installation. The dentist uses dental cement to attach the veneer to your tooth and applies ultraviolet light to harden the cement.
