Are you looking for a fast, convenient way to a brand new smile? Porcelain veneers may be just what you have been looking for. They are used to cover a wide variety of aesthetic imperfections, as well as strengthening the treated tooth. Dr. Pieter Claassen uses a blend of technical knowledge and artistic skill to design veneers that are indistinguishable from natural teeth.
A veneer is a very thin sliver of porcelain bonded directly to the surface of a tooth. They are commonly used to alter the size, shape, and alignment of teeth. If all visible teeth are being treated, they can be used to change the colour as well. If your teeth are naturally dark, or discoloured by factors such as disease or medication, teeth whitening may not work well. When veneers are only being placed on select teeth, they will be coloured to match your existing teeth precisely for a flawless smile.
Nearly anyone with essentially healthy tooth structure is an excellent candidate for porcelain veneers. Although they are thin, they are also strong, much like the laminate on countertops. However, the veneer is only as strong as the bond. A weak tooth or one with old, large fillings may not have a solid enough surface for a strong bond. If the underlying tooth has significant damage or decay, or it is likely to fail, a beautiful full dental crown may be recommended.
Minimal tooth preparation is needed to place porcelain veneers, because they are so thin. A tiny bit of enamel may need to be removed, to keep the tooth surface in precision alignment. Dr. Pieter Claassen is dedicated to keeping the pain out of dentistry, and he will use local anaesthetic if necessary to ensure your comfort. Because the procedure is so gentle and conservative, many patients don't want the anaesthetic.
Your veneers are fabricated on-site. We use advanced formula porcelain, for maximum strength and breath-taking beauty. With good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups your brand new smile will last for many years to come.
