If so, your cosmetic dentist Melbourne would like to introduce you to a cosmetic dental procedure that can correct a multitude of aesthetic issues quickly: porcelain veneers. In most cases, placement of veneers takes just two office visits, but the benefits can last years longer than other types of cosmetic fixes.
How Porcelain Veneers Are Placed
Veneers are thin laminates that cover the front surfaces of teeth. Even though they are only about half a millimeter thick, they are made of strong porcelain and are therefore extremely durable. To place them, your cosmetic dentist Melbourne will remove a very small amount of enamel from the fronts of the teeth with a gentle buffing tool. This process creates a space for your porcelain veneers so that your new teeth will look natural and not too thick. Next, we’ll make an impression of your teeth and send it to our dental laboratory so that your porcelain laminates can be constructed. At your second office visit, we will place the veneers on your teeth and bond them with a strong dental cement.
Cosmetic Issues Corrected by Veneers
Porcelain veneers can transform the colour, shape and size of teeth to create a balanced and aesthetically-pleasing smile. Teeth that are widely spaced, irregularly shaped, chipped or too small can easily be transformed with these versatile restorations. If your teeth have not responded to professional whitening treatments, veneers can cover those persistent stains and give you the luminous smile you’ve always wanted. Porcelain veneers can even take the place of braces in some instances, correcting the appearance of slightly crooked or overlapping teeth.
Benefits of Veneers Over Other Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Professional teeth whitening, composite bonding and porcelain crowns all have their place in cosmetic dentistry, but in many cases, porcelain veneers are a better option. Sometimes teeth whitening does not work on deep intrinsic stains. Bonding does not look as natural or last as long as porcelain veneers, and porcelain crowns require much more reduction of healthy tooth structure than thin laminates. Durable porcelain veneers with light-reflecting qualities are a great choice for those who want to maintain the strength of their tooth structure and show off a natural-looking smile.
