Porcelain Veneers in Richmond

So what is a veneer? A veneer is a slim shell of porcelain that is placed over a tooth in order to make the shape, colour and/or texture more attractive. Advancements in modern tech mean veneers these days are hard to detect due to how incredibly fine they are. If you’ve ever seen a wonderful smile with teeth that seem perfectly shaped and sized (but also completely natural), you may be looking at the smile of someone who has had veneers done!

Working alongside a team of talented ceramicists, who create each and every veneer bespoke for your teeth, we ensure they are as natural looking as they are durable. The ultra thin, non-porous surface of a veneer works to keep a natural lustre and minimize possible staining, proving them to be an ideal option for an even, straight and perfect smile that continues to maintain its brilliance year after year.

What issues can veneers help with?

Unevenly shaped and sized teeth
Gaps between your teeth
Mildly crooked teeth
Chipped and cracked teeth
Discoloured teeth

Frequently Asked Questions about Veneers

Your friendly Richmond dentist will first discuss with you what kind of goals you have during your free Smile Makeover appointment before assessing the viability of the teeth requiring correction. If viable, your tooth will then have a thin layer removed, providing an ideal surface for the veneer to adhere to. A temporary veneer will be prepared and placed over your tooth while the bespoke porcelain veneer is created by one of our artisanal ceramicists. In around a fortnight your veneer will be ready, and replace the temporary one. During this appointment your dentist will ensure the fit and look is perfect, then attach it permanently to the tooth.

Not only do veneers improve the aesthetics of your smile, but can also add durability to your teeth. Most porcelain veneers have a lifespan of 10 – 25 years.

This lifespan is impacted by certain factors, just like the enamel of your natural teeth. Certain activities, such as clenching or grinding can damage or wear down a veneer, as can allowing decay to build up on and around the veneer and teeth. While the look of a veneer will remain the same indefinitely, if the veneer is subject to trauma it may develop staining, cracking or chipping.

Veneers are unique, just like your natural smile. As a result, the cost depends on many factors as they are a customised solution which may also involve other services. At your free Smile Discovery session, we’ll provide you with not only recommendations and advice by one of our dental professionals, but also a full costing of your unique proposed treatments.

While porcelain is a sturdy, incredibly strong material, accidents can happen where a veneer might be damaged or cracked. If you’ve had an accident and damaged a veneer, you can book online or call us to arrange an emergency dental visit as soon as possible.

Definitely! Veneers are a great option to correct more mild or moderate aesthetic concerns such as crooked teeth or gaps, but you may find your dentist recommend other treatments as well, to create a desirable outcome. Many clients also find having a whitening treatment as well as their veneers means they can match the colour of their teeth for a unified, brighter look.
