What to Expect from Our Porcelain Veneers

As far as cosmetic dentistry is concerned, porcelain veneers are one of our most popular treatments. So you know what to expect from your Pure Smiles treatment, we explain how our porcelain veneers work and the results you can expect below.

Porcelain veneers explained

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Once applied, they improve your smile and give you that glowing celebrity look you’ve always wanted, covering gaps and imperfections in your teeth. Sometimes referred to as ‘instant orthodontics’, veneers are an excellent option for you if you’re looking to transform your smile without the hassle associated with braces. 

The process 

The good news is that the process of applying porcelain veneers to your teeth is super simple and will give you that killer smile in no time. Here’s what to expect: 

  • Your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of your teeth to make way for the veneers. 

  • Next, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth and will consider the ideal shade to best complement your smile. 

  • Your impression will be sent to a dental lab where your veneers are prepared. 

  • You will be called to the dentist when your veneers arrive. Your dentist will clean your teeth and make any small adjustments required before bonding the veneers to your teeth.

Opting for porcelain veneers is an excellent way to improve your smile and is much more affordable than you think. It’s also a lot less labour intensive than being fitted for braces, which is why it’s so appealing to lots of our customers. 

The results you can expect 

Once your dentist has fitted your porcelain veneers, you will be all set with the smile that you’ve been dreaming of! But there are also a few things you need to be mindful of: 

  • It will take you a little while to get used to the feel of your veneers. However, within a few days, you should have adjusted. If your veneers don’t feel right after a week or so, check-in with your dentist as there might be an issue. 

  • You need to look after your veneers once they’ve been installed. They can chip or break under pressure, so you will need to try and stop biting your fingernails and chewing on hard objects. 

  • Make sure you continue flossing and brushing your teeth daily, and use an antibacterial mouthwash to keep your porcelain veneers in the best possible shape. 

Ultimately, porcelain veneers are a super popular cosmetic treatment because they help to transform your smile. Therefore, it’s important that you look after them once you’ve gone to the trouble of having them fitted.
