Perfect for a whole manner of dental issues they’re designed to fit permanently onto the front of your existing teeth to disguise any number of teeth problems that take away from having that whiter, brighter smile.
Porcelain veneers in Melbourne can help.
Porcelain veneers shouldn’t be confused with composite veneers in Melbourne. Although both provide great smile solutions, the former is made from thin layers of hard wearing dental porcelain which are then attached to the teeth. Alternatively, the latter is made from a gel-like composite material which hardens when it’s applied to the tooth’s surface. Subsequently one of the benefits of porcelain veneers is that they offer a more permanent, long-lasting solution.
The first visit – Otherwise known as the initial planning stage, this is where your teeth are assessed and the best course of action is determined. After close inspection of your mouth and a series of x-rays, our dental team will explain everything to you about the process. Now is also a good time for us to answer any questions or concerns you might have, so feel free to fire away!
The preparation – During the next visit, your teeth will need to be prepared to receive your new porcelain veneers. Using a local anesthetic to gently numb the area our dentist will shave a tiny bit of enamel off the tooth. This is so that when your veneers are fitted, they sit flush with the rest of your teeth. Next an impression is made and the mould is sent to the dental lab so they can make your veneers. Finally, we’ll fit you with some temporaries as it can take 2-3 weeks before we receive your veneers back from the lab.
Final fit – So the day has come to fit your permanent porcelain veneers. Your temporaries are carefully removed and the permanent versions put into position. Once everyone is happy, your dental veneers are shaped and polished to blend in with the rest of your existing teeth to complete a flawless look.
Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that maintenance is easy. They simply need to be brushed and flossed the same way as your natural teeth, so maintenance is an absolute breeze. And… just like your natural teeth, don’t go chewing on ice or using them as bottle openers!
Because dental porcelain doesn’t stain it means that your new smile is likely to stay whiter for longer. As to how long do veneers last? Well, that really depends on you and how you care for them but on average, somewhere between 10-15 years is the norm.
