Change the shape of your teeth, close gaps and improve the colour with one procedure.
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of custom-made porcelain shells that can be bonded to your teeth to greatly enhance your entire smile and protect your teeth from further damage and discolouration. Porcelain veneers are indistinguishable from natural teeth and are custom-made to blend in with your smile. Achieve dramatic improvement to your smile quickly, without years of orthodontic treatment.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent way of rejuvenating your entire appearance and can be used to change the shape of your teeth, close gaps and whiten or change the colour. You can do one tooth or a segment of teeth to completely change the way you smile.
Veneers may correct:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth for those who want to straighten without braces
- Discoloured teeth from root canal treatment, old fillings, or tetracycline staining
- Small teeth you wish to make longer or wider
- Spaces and gaps between your teeth
As the most conservative porcelain restoration, this procedure allows minimal, and occasionally no reduction of your tooth structure. In cases where preparation is needed, the enamel is minimally reduced to achieve the best possible contour and natural appearance of the veneers.

At Iris Dental, we use quality dental labs that create beautiful, natural-looking porcelain veneers for our patients. They can last 8-10 years if you look after them well. When it comes to taking care of your veneers and ensuring they last as long as possible, it really is quite simple – you take care of your veneers just as you would your normal teeth. Brushing twice a day combined with daily flossing are important parts of keeping your veneers clean and intact. It’s also important to consider your diet; things like coffee and red wine are also bad for your teeth and can stain your veneers. When going to the dentist, a different type of polishing paste will be used as opposed as to the paste suited for tooth enamel. Aside from these minor differences, veneers should be treated just like any other tooth.
