Porcelain Venners

Teeth discoloration caused by tetracycline staining or by crowded and misshapen front teeth can easily be treated with porcelain veneers. The principle behind this procedure is similar to wearing pressed on nails or contact lenses, except a porcelain layer is attached to the front part of the teeth. This treatment requires very minimal tooth reduction under local anaesthesia, and an impression taken for the necessary lab work requiring two appointments that are two weeks apart. The patient would be wearing life-like temporary restorations that are patterned from their original dentition for the two weeks wait.
