Porcelain Veneers Gold Coast QLD
Porcelain veneers are considered an innovative cosmetic dentistry treatment that look and feel like natural teeth and can enhance the appearance of your smile.
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain covers for your teeth. They are considered a long-term cosmetic dentistry solution because they are made from strong and durable materials that are designed to seamlessly match your natural smile.
Porcelain veneers can be used to conceal a number of cosmetic concerns including:
- Cracked teeth
- Damaged enamel
- Gaps between teeth
- Short or misshaped teeth
- Minor misalignment
Porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic dentistry treatment because they are strong and they appear as natural teeth.
Generally patients opt for porcelain veneers as their cosmetic solution because they found that teeth whitening won’t resolve the stains on their teeth, or they have had an accident and need to repair a tooth. They may want straight looking teeth but don’t want to go through the hassle of braces, amongst other reasons.
Unlike natural teeth, porcelain veneers don’t stain. Although remember that your other natural teeth do so if you choose to have very white veneers and your other teeth start yellowing, there may be a contrast between your natural teeth and your veneers. It I important to consider that all your teeth still need to be taken care of (including the ones with veneers) so make sure you take time to brush your teeth twice a day and floss.
If you have decided on this treatment to resolve particular discoloured teeth, you may want to invest in teeth whitening beforehand so that your other teeth will be the same colour as your new veneers.
Generally the porcelain veneers treatment would be carried out as follows:
In the initial stage, your dentist will need to prepare your teeth for the veneers. This involves carefully trimming back a slight amount of the tooth enamel to make room for the veneer to be placed. This is necessary to ensure the veneers will appear natural and not bulky.
Your dentist will then assess the most appropriate shade for your teeth and will take an impression of your smile. This impression will be sent to a professional laboratory where your new porcelain veneers will be designed and fabricated to suit you.
While you wait for your new veneers to be created, you may wish to have temporary veneers placed.
Once your porcelain veneers have been fabricated, your dentist will skilfully bond them to your teeth. During this stage your dentist will take time to ensure the shapes and shades of your veneers reflect your cosmetic desires.
