Making your smile even more beautiful
Porcelain Veneers in Dublin
A porcelain veneer is a cosmetic dentistry solution used to correct tooth shape, size, and color. We tailor each treatment to your unique smile. Porcelain veneers enable Drs. Smiley and Holowicki to close minor gaps and smooth slightly misaligned teeth.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. When bonded to teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, and even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
Yes, because of how they’re implanted, veneers are permanent. We first place the veneer over the tooth and shape and trim it to match. Then, we roughen the surface of the tooth and apply a cement that adheres the veneer to the tooth. Finally, we use ultraviolet light to set the veneer. And that’s it – you’ll be back to your day in no time.
How do I know if porcelain veneers are right for me?
Porcelain veneers are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular because of their simplicity and versatility. You need not go under sedation to have veneers implanted. They work best for minor cosmetic corrections, like to create uniform shape and color to match other teeth and to close slight gaps between your teeth.
Do porcelain veneers need maintenance?
While porcelain veneers are simple to implant, it is important to remember that they require some upkeep, like with most other cosmetic dentistry implants. You’ll want to avoid biting directly into popcorn kernels, for example. With proper care, porcelain veneers will make your smile even more beautiful.
Are porcelain veneers handcrafted?
Yes! Using the most advanced and proven materials available, we will create your veneers in our on-site dental lab. Your veneers will be custom made with porcelain, which resists staining better than resin and provides a more natural finish.
