If you are not happy with the shape, colour, or alignment of your teeth, Simply Smiles Dental in Toorak will be pleased to recommend one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in our clinic.
Dental veneers are very thin shells made from advanced materials that closely resemble the colour and appearance of natural tooth enamel.
Veneers are attached on the front surface of teeth and provide instant smile transformation.
Find out if dental veneers are for you and how they can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
Good Candidates for Veneers
Like any other dental procedures, veneers are not for everyone. That’s why, to ensure the health and safety of the patient, a dentist will examine a patient before recommending the procedure.
The dentist will evaluate your health history, current oral health, and the condition of your tooth enamel. If you are not a good candidate, the dentist will recommend alternative procedures that can better address your dental problems.
Nevertheless, you might opt for dental veneers if you have any of the following aesthetic issues.
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Uneven teeth spaces
- Dull or discoloured teeth
- Misshapen, too small, too big, or pointy teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Large faulty fillings
However, to be a candidate for veneers, dentists note that you must have:
- Healthy gums
- Healthy teeth
- Sufficient amount of tooth enamel
- Commitment to good oral care
- Specific cosmetic goals
- Realistic expectations of the treatment
The Veneer Procedure
Dental veneers usually take 2 to 3 dental appointments. The procedure typically consists of the following:
Diagnosis and Treatment Planning – this stage allows you to discuss your smile goals with your dentist. Your dentist will examine your teeth and create a treatment plan for you.
Preparation – there are different brands of veneers. Some brands require more preparation than others. At this stage, the dentist will remove a minimal amount of tooth enamel to accommodate the new veneers. Next, the dentist will make a mould of your teeth, which will be sent to the dental lab where your veneers are made.
Bonding – this is the final step in which your dentist will check for fit and colour. Adjustments may be made if needed. If everything is perfect, the dentist will cement the veneers into place and harden them using a special curing light.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
