Veneers and Laminates

Veneers and laminates are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the teeth. This can change their shape, shade, and position to improve the cosmetics of your teeth and smile. They are also used to replace and restore any lost tooth structure where indicated.

Veneers can enhance the shape of your teeth, make your teeth as white as you want, and give you the smile you have always desired. Additionally, veneers are bonded to your tooth structure, which gives them strength.

Since they are very thin, veneers are considered one of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available. Most of the time, very little or no tooth structure is removed before placing veneers.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of mild bleaching materials to gently lighten the colour of your teeth.

The active ingredients in dental whitening products is usually either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. After the gel is applied to the surface of the teeth, the active ingredient is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour becomes lighter.

With the at-home system, you will be provided with plastic trays moulded to the shape of your teeth. A small amount of Whitening gel is placed in the trays and the trays are then placed in your mouth for up to 45 minutes a day. It usually takes between two and three weeks to achieve a good result.

Sensitivity during or a few days after treatment is the most commonly reported side effect. However, that usually quickly disappears on its own or can be eased using a sensitive toothpaste and fluoride mouthwash.
