How Porcelain Veneers Work

Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain sheets attached to the front surfaces of your teeth to improve their appearance. They require significant knowledge and technical skill from the clinician, who is supported by an off-site dental laboratory. They are often designed with Digital Smile Design (DSD) software, allowing patients to view their new smiles as a simulation before committing to the procedure.

At your initial consultation, you will discuss your specific goals and ideal aesthetic result with your dentist. This will involve looking at all possible procedures and outcomes prior to settling on porcelain veneers. We will then take a complete range of clinical photographs, dental x-rays, 3D scans and impressions to start planning your new smile.

If required, at a subsequent follow-up appointment, we will show you a simulation via our Digital Smile Design software of a possible aesthetic outcome. At this point, you’ll be able to advise us of any changes you would like to make to your future smile. This can include considerations such as shade, shape and even the size of given veneers.

If you choose to go ahead, your next appointment will involve shaping your teeth to fit your new porcelain veneers. You will be given temporary veneers to wear for two weeks during the fabrication process, after which we will cement your permanent veneers to your teeth.
