Porcelain veneers

Dr Peter van der Meulen's porcelain veneers are thin, laboratory or CEREC manufactured layers of beautiful porcelain that are bonded onto the front of the teeth to change their shape, colour or length.

Minimum preparation to achieve the best overall esthetic result with your porcelain veneers is always optimal. In certain instances, no preparation is required for beautiful porcelain veneers. Please see some of our treatment results in our before and after images.

           

Correct diagnosis and pre-treatment visualisation is critical in achieving optimal dental esthetics and the correct anti-aging effect with regards to Porcelain Veneers.  Your interactive input, together with Dr Peter van der Meulen's diagnostic experience and knowledge will be used to provide the esthetic brief to the ceramist / dental technician.

Diagnostic clip-on veneers manufactured from acrylic or composite material are then diagnostically used to evaluate all the envisaged changes to the teeth and the effect on your smile. Diagnostic digital photographs will be used to confirm the optimal Porcelain Veneers result.

These diagnostic clip-on veneers may then be taken home where you can place and remove them at your leisure. Should you wish, your family, spouse or special friends could help to evaluate the possible results.  Once you are happy with the proposed result, then final Porcelain Veneers will be manufactured to the specifications from the diagnostic clip-on veneers.

Prosthodontists are specialists in cosmetic dentistry and receive up to 4 years of additional full-time certified training in the Science and Art of Cosmetic Dentistry, including beautiful crowns and veneers.
