Dental Veneers in Wheelers Hill

Illustration of Dental Veneers

Do you have chips and cracks in your teeth or naturally yellow or grey teeth? Veneers are becoming an increasingly popular cosmetic dental treatment.

Veneers not only improve the appearance of teeth, but they also help to make them stronger and better protected, giving you a healthy, beautiful smile.

What Are They?

Porcelain veneers are custom-fitted ‘shells’ that are applied and bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth in your smile zone and then shaped and coloured to best suit your natural smile. They are used to cosmetically correct teeth that are crooked or misshaped or to cover up gaps, stains and chips in your teeth.

How Are They Applied?

Your dentist will meet with you first, to determine the finished look you’d like to achieve while checking the appropriateness of your teeth for veneers and obtaining the best colour matches.

Next, the dentist lightly sands the enamel on the teeth to be fitted with veneers to maintain the same tooth thickness. Then, an impression of your teeth is made so the veneers can be shaped for a perfect fit, with the correct colour and shape.

While your new smile is being crafted, we may place temporary veneers on your teeth until the permanent ones are ready.

At the next visit, we will have you approve the colour and shape of your new veneers prior to cementing them. Your teeth will be cleaned with a mild acidic solution, and then a tooth-coloured bonding adhesive is applied along with the veneers to cement them into place. Then the veneers are buffed to blend in with your other teeth.

The result? A new smile and a happy face!

Benefits

As a conservative dental approach to cover teeth imperfections and fill in the gaps, porcelain veneers are an ideal choice because:

  • Very little of the actual tooth enamel is removed
  • They provide a natural-looking alternative that is less expensive than crowns
  • They are strong and stain-resistant
  • With proper care, they can last 10-15 years
  • The procedure produces very little pain or discomfort.

Chairside Composites

Bonding or chairside composite restorations are a different type of cosmetic procedure that corrects the appearance of chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth, but without the multiple steps required of porcelain veneers.

Composites are a quick and affordable alternative, when only one or two teeth has an aesthetic flaw that needs to be addressed. They’re a relatively affordable procedure and can last for several years.

This single appointment treatment is custom matched and shaped over the tooth, then bonded using a bright light. In less than an hour, your tooth can be completely reshaped. Composite is very similar to the material used in tooth colored fillings. After applied, we buff and polish the material so that it blends right in with your tooth.
