Ceramic Veneers   – E-max veneers

Veneers are thin, light custom made porcelain covers designed to fit over the front edge of the tooth. They are used mainly to improve to overall appearance of the teeth, they can;

  • Correct mildly mal-positioned teeth.
  • Mask discoloured teeth.
  • Close gaps between teeth.
  • Restore chipped or partially broken down teeth.

We mainly use Emax ceramic veneers are  technician-made veneers made of a unique synthetic porcelain that is very strong , so strong that they can be less than 0.5mm thick. They are bonded onto your teeth using a purpose-made bonding agent. Preparation to the natural tooth is usually minimal.

Before & After  Veneers

Veneers can be used to brighten discoloured teeth and to improve the aesthetic appearance.  Usually no sensitive tooth substance is removed so there is no need for injections and no sensitivity afterwards.

Two appointments are required for veneers to be custom made and fitted. During the first appointment the teeth surfaces will be prepared and impressions will be taken. Our dentist will the carefully select and approve with you the shade of tooth colour the veneers will be made in. (depending on the result which is to be achieved). The second appointment will be approximately 2 weeks later, when the new veneers will be tried in adjusted if necessary and then cemented in place.

You should take care of your  veneers exactly the same as your natural teeth; brush them and floss them twice a day, avoid eating sugary snacks and avoid eating anything very hard, use a sportsguard for contact sports.
