The Porcelain Veneer Process

In this video, Dr. Victor Apel, a renowned veneer dentist in Melbourne explains the methodology used to repair, brighten, and elongate your natural teeth.

The process for having veneers placed. Once we’ve determined the smile that you want by performing what we call a mockup that you really like the looks of, we’ll actually get models and photos of that. Then we’ll prepare the teeth, removing just enough to replace it in porcelain. This will be fabricated at a lab. Come back in several weeks, we’ll bond those in place, and you’ll be able to have the smile that you’ve always wanted.

Some people ask us, what does that cost? Well, a lot depends on how many teeth we’re doing. Some people will just want two teeth because they’ve had some chipping. Some will want four, six. Some people want to have all of their teeth in their smile line. The best thing is to come in for an evaluation so that we understand what your goals are, and then we can get an option that’ll give you what you want. So give the office a call.
