A porcelain veneer is a layer of material placed over the surface of a tooth. Porcelain veneers are the most commonly used cosmetic method to correct dental imperfections, including discolouration, poor alignment, misshaped teeth, or even to close gaps that might appear between teeth. Dental veneers can even be used in cases where orthodontic treatments – like braces – have been deemed unsuitable. Occasionally, veneers are also used after orthodontic treatments if re-alignment has not been as effective as predicted.

How do porcelain veneers work?
Our veneer treatments consist of two appointments. At the first appointment, the tooth or teeth is/are prepared, and an impression is taken. This allows the dental ceramist/technician to custom-make each veneer. At the second appointment, the veneers are bonded to the teeth.
Here at Primecare Dental, our porcelain veneers can be made paper-thin, meaning that significant removal of natural tooth structure is not necessary before they are cemented to the front teeth. If the teeth being treated are strong and healthy, and the treatment is primarily cosmetic, a veneer can be a more conservative treatment option than a crown, requiring less removal of your natural teeth overall.
Our state-of-the-art veneers also allow more translucency when bonded onto your teeth, resulting in a more natural and attractive appearance. As technology progresses, and veneers become more and more advanced, it’s easy to understand how veneers have become extremely popular, both in New Zealand and worldwide.
