What Are Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic option for fixing imperfections in your smile. Porcelains are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to your teeth using a thin layer of adhesive. To receive veneers, you’ll need to have healthy gums and dental enamel. Your dentist will trim down your teeth so they can be shaped into their new form. Then they’ll bond porcelain to them, which will look and feel like your natural teeth.
How Can You Tell if Veneers Are Right For You?
Porcelain veneers can be a great option for improving your smile and boosting your confidence. But before you make any decisions, it’s important to understand exactly what they are and whether or not they’re right for you. In many cases, porcelain veneers are a better choice than other types of teeth-whitening procedures because they last longer and require less maintenance. Our staff at The Face Space in Monmouth has years of experience helping patients choose between different types of cosmetic treatments, so we can give you all the information you need to decide if porcelain veneers are right for you.

What Should I Do Before Going Ahead With The Procedure?
There are a few steps you should follow before undergoing porcelain veneer treatment. The Face Space in Monmouth offers several services for clients who want to enhance their smiles, including porcelain veneers and teeth whitening. Many patients choose both treatments at once as part of a full smile makeover that helps them achieve optimal results. Before going ahead with any procedure, however, it’s important to prepare yourself with all of the necessary information about how it works and how much it costs.
Veneer Bonding Procedure
Porcelain veneer bonding is a procedure to correct imperfections of your teeth by applying artificial veneers. This process involves removing enamel from your teeth to make room for veneer ceramic. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia in our office and it can take anywhere from one hour to two hours or more depending on how many veneers are required. Once they have been applied, they are polished and set in place with a special light-curing resin that makes them look like natural teeth.
Difference Between Veneers And Implants
Veneers are custom-made to match your smile and teeth perfectly, but they’re a lot thinner than dental implants. This is a good option for patients who don’t have enough tooth structure left to hold an implant securely. Veneers can be made of porcelain, ceramic or resin, but are most commonly made of porcelain. However, a dental implant is used to replace missing teeth, anchor dentures and support dental crowns. They are commonly made of titanium, but may also be composed of stainless steel. They can either be placed into bone or gums. Implants are permanently cemented in place and will not dislodge without proper removal by a dentist.
