Porcelain Veneers for smile makeovers

Dental veneers have long been used to create the ultimate smile
makeover, with this treatment it is possible to transform crooked,
stained, damaged and badly worn teeth into a brand new straight white
smile as seen on many of the Hollywood greats.

Asthetic Dentistry

Veneers are wafer thin lamintates or shells of tooth coloured
material (which can be either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding
material) that are “cemented” to the front surface of teeth to improve
their cosmetic appearance. Many dentists use the analogy that dental
veneers are for your teeth what false finger nails are for your hands.
In a similar manner to how false finger nails are placed or glued to
your existing fingernails, veneers are bonded to the front of your
existing teeth.

Reasons to opt veneer

Stained Teeth, Damaged Teeth, Gaps, Crooked teeth (orthodontics are a better solution in case of crooked teeth).

Gum contouring – “gummy smile”

Patients are often concerned that too much gum is showing when they
smile or that their teeth look too short. This problem commonly referred
to as a “gummy smile” can be easily remedied by gum reshaping or

Excess gum tissue is marked out by the dentist and then trimmed away.

After the procedure the gum is left to heal and the results are
immediate. In some cases where a large amount of gum tissue is removed
the healing process may take longer and it may be necessary to trim bone
on the front of the tooth root to prevent re-growth of the gum tissue.
The results are usually permanent and relatively inexpensive.

Severe cases can be treated in combination with orthodontics.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is the process of removing stains and discolouration
from teeth and improving their colour through a bleaching process to
make them look “whiter”.

dentistry for many years and can transform your smile in just a single
