Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are usually the more expensive option, but the transformative effect they can have on a person’s smile makes them well worth the investment. The treatment will involve four appointments, with the initial preparation work being done with Dr Huson and the creation of the veneers taking place at our in house lab.

They are created specifically for your unique set of teeth and will be custom tailored to your individual tooth colour and shape. They are resistant to staining and are the ideal solution to more severe discoloration, chips or cracks, and they generally last much longer than other types of veneers.

At Silver Oaks Dental Clinic we highly recommend porcelain veneers. It is the latest technology.

Below is a before and after pic of porcelain veneers. The results are remarkable and you can see how porcelain veneers straighten and whiten teeth all in one go. This is a far more cost effective method than braces and provides quick results usually 3-4 appointments over a short period of time. This can transform your life and dramatically improve your confidence. Research suggests that improving your teeth can make you look 10 years younger. Prices start from R5500 and can go up to R9500. We use only the best manufacturers that are world renowned.

Composite Veneers

We try NOT to use composite veneers has it discolors over time and you can’t pre determine the shape and color. It is also NOT resistant to staining. The big downside from composite veneers is that the finish often isn’t as good as you would get from porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers gives of a more natural look.

Regular cleaning and polishing of your porcelain veneers will keep them looking great, and as long as your daily dental hygiene is good they should last a long time.
