Porcelain dental veneers
A dental veneer is a layer of tooth-coloured material which is attached to and covers the front surface of a tooth. They are usually made of porcelain. Composite resin veneers can be built up directly onto the tooth, while porcelain veneers are made in the laboratory and are later glued (bonded) on to the tooth.
Here at the Shoreham Smile Studio we fabricate our veneers onsite in our very own CEREC ceramic studio, you dont need to wait 2 weeks to have your veneers made by a lab we control the shape, size and fit here at our studio and our onsite technician will ensure that your veneers are made to suite your requriements.
Porcelain laminate veneers can be used in a variety of clinical situations e.g. colour defects or abnormalities in enamel can be masked. The following list gives a range of situations in which veneers can be used.
- intrinsic staining or surface defects caused by ageing
- medication (e.g. tetracycline),
- lack of mineralisation
- improper natural development
- erosion and abrasion
- extrinsic permanent staining not amendable to tooth whitening procedures
- misalignment of the teeth
