Rapidly transform your smile and improve the appearance of your teeth with porcelain veneers, just one of the cosmetic treatments available at The Dental Practice.
Porcelain veneers offer an excellent alternative to prolonged orthodontic treatment, providing a cosmetic solution for cracked, chipped, broken or discoloured teeth. Made from strong and durable materials, they are long lasting and offer a pleasant natural look with little to no discomfort.
What are porcelain veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain shells which are bonded to your teeth. They are used to recreate the natural look of your teeth, whilst providing the strength and durability of natural tooth enamel. Veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment, offering a range of benefits including;
Natural looking results – A unique substance, porcelain closely mimics the natural characteristics of tooth enamel. This makes porcelain veneers highly resistant to wear and capable of resisting stains with the correct care. Being semi-translucent also gives them a more natural look, as natural teeth tend to have a slightly transparent appearance. Your dentist will be able to assist you in selecting the colour which best suits your existing teeth, providing a natural looking smile.
Fully customised treatment – Much like your natural teeth, no two veneers are the same. Designed specifically to suit your dental requirements, veneers are individually fabricated. When you come in to receive treatment, impressions will be taken and your veneers moulded accordingly.
Solutions to a range of problems – A great alternative to a range of treatments, veneers provide the solution for various cosmetic and orthodontic issues. Individually designed, they are capable of concealing gaps, chips, cracked and broken teeth, as well as problems with discolouration or mild alignment issues.
Porcelain veneers treatment process
Initial consultation – Once it is decided that the treatment is the correct option for you, our highly experienced dentists will discuss the treatment in more depth. Answering any questions you may have, they will begin to formulate a unique treatment plan to suit you. During this period, our dentist will discuss with you the correct colour to match your smile, as well as the desired outcomes from your treatment.
Preparation – Finalising the details of your treatment, your dentist will begin preparing your tooth for the veneer to be applied. Removing around 3mm of tooth structure will allow the new veneers to blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth. Once teeth have been prepared, your dentist will send impressions of your teeth off to the laboratory for fabrication. Fabricated locally in Sydney, our veneers are extremely strong and wear resistant.
Bonding – During your second appointment your newly fabricated veneers will be fitted. Your dentist will individually bond each veneer onto your teeth, ensuring each veneer is perfectly suited to your smile. Veneers will be adhered to your teeth using a special form of dental bonding material and treated with a special light. This allows the bonding material to set correctly, ensuring, with the correct care, your veneers will last for a long period.
