Porcelain Veneers in Panania – Creating Beautiful Smiles
If your smile is spoilt by chipped, cracked, discoloured, or blemished teeth, then you may want to consider porcelain veneers. Panania patients can experience a complete smile transformation with this simple cosmetic dental procedure.
Worn over the front surface of your existing teeth, porcelain veneers can cover over a multitude of sins. But in addition, porcelain veneers can also be used to change the shape of your teeth to create a more uniform look and even close slight tooth gaps.

What are porcelain veneers?
Otherwise known as dental veneers or dental laminates, porcelain veneers are in fact thin tooth-shaped shells of super-strong dental porcelain which are bonded to the front surface of the tooth. Fortunately, advances in the understanding of smile design coupled with an improved translucent look of the material used means that patients visiting our Panania dentist can expect a flawless, natural-looking smile transformation.
Porcelain veneers in Panania can be used to provide a great aesthetic restoration for teeth which are:
- Badly stained
- Uneven or
But in addition to creating a great-looking smile, modern dental veneers in Panania are durable – lasting up to 15 years, so just like a dental crown, porcelain veneers also provide added protection to the tooth.
Porcelain veneers in Panania – How the process works
Preliminary – During a preliminary visit for dental veneers, our Panania dentist will take a series of X-rays. We will also talk to you about your desired tooth shade and shape.
Preparation – in this phase, a tiny amount of enamel (usually around half a millimetre) may need to be removed from the tooth. This is to ensure your dental veneers sit perfectly in alignment with your other teeth. An impression is then taken and along with your aesthetic smile design and prescription, it is sent off to a local dental laboratory. While you wait, temporary dental veneers may be fitted allowing you to trial your smile.
Placement – After 1-2 weeks your permanent veneers will be ready. At this visit, any ‘temporaries’ are removed, and your permanent dental veneers are carefully bonded into position. All that’s left to do is to buff and polish up your new look to create an attractive smile that you can be proud of.
