Dental Care Fife uses Porcelain Veneers allowing us to create beautiful, life-like results.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are a thin, semi-translucent laminate permanently bonded to your teeth. While they’re not suitable for every patient, veneers are the most aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions involving the front teeth, including:
- Spaces between teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Unsightly, stained or washed out fillings
- Permanently stained or discoloured teeth that can’t be bleached
- Crooked teeth
How is a porcelain veneer made?
At the first appointment the teeth are prepared for the veneers and an impression is taken. This impression is then sent to a lab where each porcelain veneer is custom made to the dentist’s specifications and beautiful temporaries are fabricated to simulate your new smile: expect to leave the first appointment looking better than when you came in. At the second appointment the veneers are permanently adhered to the natural teeth.
What to expect
At Dental Care Fife, expect our friendly team to take care of you. All you have to do is take good care of your Veneers, and can last on average for 10 years! Once veneers are applied, treat them like you would your own teeth. They are more durable than simple composite and more resistant to stains and chipping. If you continue with your regular oral hygiene and visit us for routine cleanings, your new veneers will look as good as new.
