What Are Dental Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin ceramics bonded onto the surface of your teeth to improve the shape, harmony, and colour of your teeth.

Given their minimally invasive nature, dental veneers may be the solution for you if you are looking for a smile makeover or simply want attractive, natural-looking teeth. Even though they may look very delicate, veneers are extremely resistant when bonded to enamel, which is the outer layer of your teeth.

Benefits Of Having Dental Veneers

Cover or fix cosmetic issues

Dental veneers can fix small yet visible cosmetic issues such as chips, cracks, discolouration or gaps in your teeth when you smile or talk.

Look and feel natural

Dental veneers are made to look and feel natural in your mouth – just like real teeth. Both you and those around won’t notice a difference.

Require little enamel removal

Dental veneers are non-invasive and do not require anaesthesia to carry out the procedure. To bond veneers to a tooth/teeth, very little enamel is removed to secure it in place.

Prevent tooth/teeth discolouration

With dental veneers, your natural teeth will be protected from certain foods or drinks that tend to stain and discolour the teeth. Dental veneers can last up to 10 years with good oral hygiene and care.

Low maintenance

Dental veneers are non-porous, making them stain-resistant and require low maintenance to preserve a great smile. You are still advised to brush and floss your teeth twice a day.

Lasts for a long time

With proper care, veneers can last as long as 15 years.

How I Know If Porcelain Veneers Are Suitable For Me?

At Dental Designs, we created "Smile Trial" - so that you can directly see how the final outcome can be, before we  start any treatment. This bon-invasive procedure requires no drilling and damage to your teeth. Most of all, there are no obligations to having this procedure done.

Individually Made Porcelain Veneers With In House Laboratory in Singapore

Dental Designs Clinic has a unique in house laboratory where our dentists work closely with the dental technicians to create high quality custom dental veneers that ensures that every custom detail which you have discussed with your dentist will come to life under our full control.
Each veneer is hard painted and finished with artistic characterisations, textures and colours to achieve natural and beautiful aesthetics. They go into a ceramic furnace, heating up to 850 to embeds the colours onto the ceramic and glazes the ceramic veneers, while further strengthening it.

Facially Driven Smile Design

Our philosophy is that a beautiful smile is one that is in harmony with the rest of the face shape and lips, in addition to being straight and functional.

To achieve this, we measure the proportions of your face and take each aspect of your eyes, facial midine, lips in relation to your teeth. When planning your Invisalign treatment, these ideals form the backbone and thus each Invisalign treatment is specifically customised and uniquely suited to your individual style.

Process Of Getting Dental Porcelain Veneers At
Dental Designs in Singapore

STEP 1: Consultation

  • A thorough examination is conducted to make sure you have no underlying dental issues – this includes taking digital 3D scans, X-rays and photographs.
  • In the event we detect any anomalies, our dentists will recommend the necessary procedure(s) to undergo before creating your veneers.
  • You will work closely with our dentists to decide on the shade, type and shape of veneer that best suits your overall facial profile.

STEP 2: Preparation

  • A 3D mould of your teeth is created.
  • Your teeth are filed down for bonding of the veneers.
  • Some patients may not require their teeth to be filed down as they are suitable for no-prep veneers; no-prep veneers allow for the porcelain to be bonded directly onto the teeth.

STEP 3: Smile Trial

  • A temporary set of veneers are made to assess their suitability with your preferences and face.
  • You will have these veneers on for about a week. If only minor changes are required, we can continue with bonding your permanent veneers
  • If major changes are required, we will create another set of temporary veneers.
  • This process repeats until you are satisfied with your new veneers.

STEP 4: Bonding

  • Your permanent veneers are bonded on.

STEP 5: Review

  • To ensure your veneers are stable and work well with your bite, we encourage all patients to come back for a review appointment.
