What Are Porcelain Veneers and How Do They Work?

What Are Porcelain Veneers

Warm and positive, a smile is very often one of the nicest gifts we can offer to someone. For many of us, a smile from the right person can be more than enough to make our day.

Yet, this isn’t always so easily done. As there are some of us who are extremely self-conscious about the appearance and condition of our teeth, sharing a smile can sometimes be very difficult.


Why do we lose our smile?

Dissatisfaction with our teeth can stem from a number of problem areas. Discolouration, whether as a result of consuming certain foods/drinks or as a side effect of previous dental surgery, is one of the major causes of lost confidence. The source of this self-consciousness can also be the emergence of broken or chipped teeth over time or lifelong concerns over the alignment and symmetry of these hard-working body parts.


What are porcelain veneers?

The addition of porcelain veneers to our teeth can be an extremely effective method of helping us to recapture our lost smiles. Designed to cover the most common and confidence-destroying of teeth concerns and irregularities, porcelain veneers are fixed to the front of our teeth in order to alter their length, colour, shape or size.

As these veneers are created in accordance with the unique shape of each mouth and set of teeth, they offer patients a custom-made solution to their tooth-based hangups. And the benefits of porcelain veneers are many: they’re natural-looking, stain-resistant and can brighten even the darkest of teeth.


How do porcelain veneers work?

At Yew Tree Dental Care and Implant Centre, we take the utmost care in helping patients achieve the smile of their dreams. As such, when we fit porcelain veneers, we follow a thorough and meticulous process.

Following an initial consultation in which we’ll discuss all of the finer points of this procedure, we’ll take some moulds and photos to ensure your veneers are constructed in line with the shape of your mouth and teeth. Your second appointment will consist of your veneers being fitted and finished, leaving you ready to take on the world. A final aftercare appointment will then take place in order to ensure the success of the procedure and to make sure you’re satisfied with the end result!
