What are Porcelain Veneers?
At our practice, we use thin porcelain shells. This type of veneer is as thin as a contact lens. The dental veneer is crafted to suit your specific needs and requirements. The porcelain veneer is permanently bonded to the tooth for a smile change. This treatment can be used to conceal teeth that are chipped, gapped, stained, discoloured, misaligned, broken or crooked.
Porcelain veneers can, in some cases, be an alternative to dental crowns. Your initial consultation will include assessment of the health of your smile. Professor Ironside needs to ensure you are free of any underlying dental issues such as decay, damage or gum disease. He will fix any conditions found prior to transforming your natural smile.
“Once you have a comprehensive treatment plan, the challenge is then to start prioritising things”
Professor Jim Ironside
How are porcelain veneers applied?
Prior to getting dental veneers your teeth need to be prepared. We do this by shaving your teeth to achieve the correct shape and size. By doing so, the dental veneer will have a better surface to bond to. This can result in longer lasting and durable treatment.
Upon removing a small amount of enamel, we will take an impression of your tooth. This impression will be what is used to digitally construct your veneers.
Porcelain veneers can be bonded onto a number of teeth. These include the six upper and lower teeth that are visible as you smile. Upon approval, Professor Ironside will bond, contour and polish the veneer to match your natural tooth colour.

Frequently asked questions about veneers
Can you get veneers on broken teeth?
No, veneers can’t be used to restore a broken tooth. For that you would need a dental crown. These are crafted to suit your specific needs and requirements, including covering up a broken tooth. Not only can a dental crown protect a broken tooth can be used to improve the colour, shape and appearance of your tooth so that your great smile can be restored. The dental crown for a broken tooth is specially crafted and made to protect the tooth and also make it look good.
What is the cost of porcelain veneers?
Before getting veneers, it is important to make sure you are happy with your tooth colour. Veneers do not work with teeth whitening so if you want whiter teeth it is important to do so before getting veneers.
The cost for porcelain veneers can vary depending on the number of teeth you are getting veneers for. To find out how much they will cost, book a consultation with Professor Ironside.
How long do dental veneers last?
If you continue to practice good oral hygiene habits, your veneers will be with you for many years. To ensure they last, we suggest avoiding coffee, tea, chewing ice and smoking. Doing so will help keep your veneers in pristine condition. It is also important to make sure you brush and floss every day.
Do porcelain veneers stain?
Professor Ironside applies porcelain veneers that are stain resistant not stain proof. You need to take care of your veneers to ensure they don’t stain. Over time the surrounding teeth may discolour, in this case, you can get your veneers replaced to match your natural tooth’s change in colour.
Taking care of your veneers could add years onto how long they last for.
Can porcelain veneers fix crooked teeth?
Depending on how crooked your teeth are, veneers can be used to fix a tooth alignment and the spacing. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic option as opposed to straightening teeth. Whilst your teeth may look straight, they are not straight underneath the veneer. Dental veneers can give your teeth a straight appearance. Consulting your prosthodontist to see if this is possible is recommended.
