I’ve heard of veneers without tooth reduction. Can anyone have them?

With the majority of cases, tooth reduction is not necessary for veneers. However, in certain situations, minimal tooth reduction will facilitate a more aesthetic outcome.

Are porcelain veneers permanent? Are they replaceable?

Porcelain veneers firmly adhere to the enamel of your teeth. With good maintenance and care, they rarely come loose and can serve you for many years before you consider having them replaced. However, no preparation veneers are fully reversible.

Will they look natural?

Not all veneers are the same. You might’ve seen people who look like they have unnatural smiles. Veneer manufacture is an intricate and time-consuming process. A skilfully crafted veneer will replicate all the details of nature, minimise decay, and preserve your tooth. Our top technician will make you high quality veneers, which can only be distinguished from natural teeth by a qualified professional. We offer them at an affordable price.

How long does it take?

It takes two to three appointments, two weeks apart, to make porcelain veneers.
