This is the ultimate treatment option in cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to provide natural-looking teeth that are strong and more resilient that normal teeth.
Porcelain veneers now make it possible to instantly improve the look of your teeth without using braces or crowns.
At Mona Lisa Smiles we use veneers to solve the following:
Chipped, broken & worn teeth.
Gaps between the teeth.
Discoloured old white fillings.
Twisted or crooked teeth.
Dark yellow or stained teeth.
Receding gums and tooth wear.
Multiple teeth can be restored with veneers to create a Hollywood smile or smile makeover in just one or two weeks, making veneers an ideal solution in cases where traditional orthodontic procedures haven’t worked. In addition, unlike crowns, with veneers your natural teeth remain largely intact.
Multiple veneers can close spaces, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear, and fill the black triangle between the front teeth caused by receding gums.
To apply a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed. This is essential to create room for the porcelain veneer while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth. Veneers are resistant to coffee and tea stains and to cigarette smoke.
If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth, we can fit a night-time bite guard so you not damage your veneers.
Minimal prep or no-prep veneers
This is an option for people looking for an alternative to traditional dental veneers or cosmetic bonding. However, this option is not appropriate for everyone. We can offer expert advice on which type of veneer is best suited to your needs.
