What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are a wafer-thin layer of material used to cover the front surface of your teeth. You will find two different types of veneers; porcelain veneers and composite veneers, which are made out of resin.

Porcelain veneers are made by using your dental measurements before being installed onto the tooth. The highly experienced team at Mawson Lakes Dental ensures the veneers are worked into a very thin film so others won’t even be able to tell that any work has been done. All they will see is your bright, natural looking and more beautiful smile.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

The surgical procedure can last a few hours. Firstly, a very thin layer of enamel is removed from the teeth to offer a better grip for the veneers to be placed. As you will be adding another layer onto your teeth with the dental veneers, it is important to make room to keep them in proportion. Once the mould is taken, temporary veneers are placed over the teeth to help protect your teeth. This will allow us to have the permanent porcelain veneers manufactured, which are then placed onto your teeth.
