Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or resin that measure less than 1.5mm in thickness, and are typically used to cover teeth which are discoloured, worn, chipped, or misaligned.
Veneers are used for many of the same reasons as bonding but they involve a different procedure. The first step is to prepare the tooth and take an impression of the tooth, or having digital scans completed. A temporary veneer may be used while the porcelain veneer is being custom created at a dental laboratory. Once the veneer has been created, it is cemented into place.
Typically, veneers are highly stain-resistant and durable, often lasting from ten to fifteen years. This makes them a great choice as a solution for anyone seeking that perfect smile without the worry of extra upkeep.
At Luma Dental we offer Digital Smile Design, allowing the patient to have a digital visual of what the final result will look like, prior to committing to treatment.
