What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made to create the perfect shape and colour. They are bonded onto the front of teeth and function and look just like your normal tooth enamel. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and hide discolouration to create the smile you’ve always wanted. They are very durable, they do not stain and discolour like enamel and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long-lasting smile.
Porcelain veneers can correct the following problems:
crooked or misshapen teeth
severely discoloured or stained teeth
teeth that are too small or large
worn or chipped teeth
unwanted or uneven spaces
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anaesthesia required during the procedure. On the first visit, the teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and the perfect colour is chosen to precisely match the surrounding teeth. On the second visit, the teeth are cleaned and the veneers are bonded to the surface of the tooth. Dr Kaunitz has decades of experience achieving fantastic results with veneers.

What are crowns?
A crown, sometimes referred to as a cap, is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface (rather than just the front surface), restoring it to its original shape and size. It protects and strengthens the tooth's structure that cannot be restored with fillings. Porcelain crowns are the most aesthetic because they resemble your natural teeth for wear, hardness and strength. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size and colour of your teeth, giving you a natural, long-lasting and beautiful smile. The process of getting a crown and a veneer is very similar.
Crowns can correct the following problem:
Broken or fractured teeth
Tooth that has a root canal
Close gaps between teeth
Protect very worn surfaces of teeth to correct the bite.
