Dental veneers are custom-made, thin shells crafted from tooth-colored materials that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. These wafer-thin laminates are bonded to the teeth, resulting in an instant change in their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers offer a viable cosmetic solution for those looking to rectify stained, chipped, decayed, or misaligned teeth. With the ability to mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth, dental veneers provide a seamless and natural-looking transformation.
Why Choose Dental Veneers?
- Aesthetic Appeal: Dental veneers provide a natural tooth appearance, improving the overall look of your smile.
- Stain Resistance: Made from high-quality porcelain, veneers are resistant to staining from coffee, wine, tea, and other substances that typically discolor teeth.
- Durability: With proper care, dental veneers can last for more than a decade.
- Minimally Invasive: Unlike other dental procedures, veneers require minimal enamel removal and can be applied with little discomfort.
The Dental Veneer Procedure
- Consultation and Diagnosis: The journey begins with a thorough examination of your teeth by Dr. Demetriou or another expert from our practice. This step ensures veneers are the right choice for you.
- Preparation: A small amount of enamel, almost equivalent to the thickness of the veneer, will be removed from the tooth surface. An impression of your teeth is then taken, which will be sent to a dental laboratory to create your veneers.
- Bonding: Before cementing the veneer to your tooth permanently, it will be temporarily placed to ensure the fit and color are perfect. Adjustments can be made at this stage. Once both the dentist and patient are satisfied, the veneer is bonded to the tooth using a special adhesive.
- Final Steps: Excess cement will be removed, and your bite will be evaluated to ensure everything is perfect. A follow-up visit might be scheduled to check how your gums are responding to the veneer.
Advantages of Dental Veneers

- Customization: Veneers are tailored to fit your teeth and match your natural tooth color.
- Less Invasive: Compared to crowns or braces, veneers offer a less invasive way to achieve a beautiful smile.
- Long-Lasting Solution: With the right care, dental veneers can serve you well for many years.
