We offer porcelain veneers to give you an improved smile in just a few visits, whether your teeth need straightening or have a compromised appearance due to a crack, damage or discolouration. Porcelain veneers are hand crafted, often wafer thin and cover the front surface of the tooth, they are used to rectify many defects and irregularities. These thin pieces of porcelain are securely bonded to the tooth, they are used to change the colour, shape and alignment of teeth. Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy.
A veneer takes at least two visits. Muscat Dental Specialist. The first is to prepare the tooth and match the shade, the second visit will be used to fit the veneer/veneers. Before bonding it in place, your dentist will show you the veneer on your tooth to ensure you are happy with it. You will be able to give feedback and express your opinions. It is a similar process to the smile design. We value the patient being a part of the process. Contact us to book an appointment at Muscat Dental Specialists if veneers are something you are considering.
