More information

The Gill Clinic brings porcelain veneers to Richmond – the solution to chipped, cracked, discoloured or decayed teeth.

This is a thin sliver of porcelain that can be cemented onto the front of a tooth. Improves the appearance of crooked teeth and also whitens teeth.

To do a veneer, the front of the tooth usually needs to be shaved down by approx 1mm. This is an IRREVERSIBLE process where healthy tooth is removed. Once the tooth has been shaved down an impression is taken of the tooth. The impression is sent to a laboratory where a porcelain veneer is made. Involves 3-4 visits.

For those of you who suffer and are troubled by your chipped, cracked, crooked, discoloured, decayed and/or stained teeth, Dr Hap Gill of Smile Studios has the solution in the form of porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are thin silver porcelain wafers that are cemented and bonded to the front portion of the teeth making your teeth stronger, whitening them further and enhancing their appearance. Implementing the use of porcelain veneers has its own advantages as it mimics the original tooth structure and makes them look natural. The practice involves the removal of the damaged tooth along with impressions, which are eventually sent to the laboratory where a porcelain veneer is made to match the size, shape, position and colour of the individual’s teeth. It also augments and manipulates any type of damaged tooth. Investing in porcelain veneers is a good option as it is not a difficult process Moreover this can also be used for closing the spaces between the teeth, straightening and lengthening them. There is no fear of disfigured teeth because this procedure offers a perfect replacement of the damaged teeth.

In addition to improving the appearance of your teeth, this process also protects your teeth from further damage over a longer period of time. Porcelain veneers have the capacity to resist any further wear and tear of the teeth as they are harder and more durable than enamel. The result of this smile makeover is better than any other restorative technique that is in practice and it involves only 2-3 visits that can guarantee you the desired results.So go ahead and smile with full confidence!
