Porcelain Veneers

Looking to enhance and improve your smile? Our expert dentists in Townsville offer a high quality cosmetic smile solution known as porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin custom-made shells of tooth-coloured material or porcelain that are placed on the front surfaces of the teeth. They are natural looking veneers that improve a flawed smile and cover minor dental imperfections.

Porcelain Veneer Procedure

Porcelain veneer procedures often require at least 2 separate visits. During the first appointment, the dentist will trim a tiny amount of enamel off the teeth. This creates space for the veneer placement.

Next, they will make an impression of your teeth. The dentist will also determine your natural tooth colour. This shade information is then sent to the lab.

The lab uses this impression and shade to create your veneers. Some people have temporary veneers placed while they wait for the permanent set. When the permanent veneers are ready, the dentist removes the temporary ones. The new veneers undergo an examination to ensure a perfect fit. The dentist will then bond the veneer to your tooth.

How long do porcelain veneers last?
