Cosmetic Dentistry - Da Vinci Veneers™

Da Vinci Veneers™ are the industry leader and offer veneers that are able to mask stains and improve your smile. They are highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea and even cigarette smoking. The veneers themselves are wafer thin ceramic material that are bonded to your teeth to form a sort of protective layer that will not only protect your teeth but drastically improve the way you look.

How does it work?
The entire process is usually done in three steps; diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation and bonding.

Diagnosis and treatment planning is where you decide how you want your smile to be when the veneers are fitted. It is a consultation period that allows you to discuss with your dentist what you want done and where you can find out what can be done and also what is possible and affordable.

Preparation is your first practical appointment where you will have your teeth very slightly “buffed” in order to make room for the Da Vinci Veneers™. Usually it’s only a small amount of the tooth that is removed, around half a millimeter and it can require a local anesthetic. Also at this appointment you will have a mold taken of your teeth in order for the veneers to be properly fitted. Sometimes you can be fitted with a “temporary smile” while you wait for your veneers to be made. This appointment usually takes a few hours.

Bonding of your Da Vinci Veneers™ takes around the same time as the preparation appointment (one or two hours) and this is where your dentist will fit your veneers. They will apply your Da Vinci Veneers™ by cleaning your teeth with special dental cleansers to achieve a permanent bond. Then special cements are placed between the veneer and tooth and you’re done.

Da Vinci Veneers™ are a popular way to improve your smile and the Da Vinci Group has been perfecting their work for over two decades so you can be sure they know what they are doing. They are frequently talked about at the Tv show Extreme MakeOver so they must be really good.
