Veneer Process

Initial Consultation

We'll discuss your treatment objectives and understand the reasons for opting for veneers. Additionally, we'll assess your oral health to ensure it's conducive for veneer placement.

Teeth Preparation

During this phase, our cosmetic specialist will prepare your teeth by gently removing a thin layer of enamel, equivalent to the veneer's thickness. After this, you'll be fitted with colour-matched temporary veneers, giving you a sneak peek of your soon-to-be new smile. Rest assured, this step is designed for comfort.

Final Veneer Placement

Once your custom-made permanent veneers are crafted, we'll securely bond them to your teeth, completing your transformation and leaving you ready to showcase your revitalised 'Hollywood' smile.
