Your dentist may recommend a veneer to cover discoloured, stained, crooked, chipped or otherwise misaligned teeth. For some patients this treatment can be very effective and has a dramatic and positive impact on their smile.
For a confidently beautiful smile, Identity Dentistry recommends Dental Veneers Canberra with its dramatically transformative results that you are sure to love. Book a consultation with one of our dentists to see if your teeth are suitable for porcelain veneers.
So what are veneers? Dental Veneers Canberra are a modern cosmetic restorative procedure that is opted by patients who want their imperfect smiles to be transformed to better the aesthetics and improve their appearance so they can confidently express themselves.
Dental veneers are dental treatment for people often used by those who want a cosmetic solution to an imperfect smile. Porcelain veneers are highly durable and can withstand biting and chewing, so also provides an additional layer of protection from wear and damage.
Of course, the extent to which veneers can hold up depends upon the strength and health of the underlying natural teeth to which they are bonded. Veneers are customised, tooth-coloured, wafer-thin shells that are placed on the tooth surface, and with minimal to no tooth reduction, they can conceal minor flaws.
Multiple veneers are an excellent way to improve the overall look of a patient. The ceramic material used in porcelain veneers possesses a translucency that resembles that of teeth enamel.
In this way, they reflect light in a similar way in order to give that natural shine. These superbly mimic the translucency and appearance of natural teeth, seamlessly creating perfect smiles.
If you smile less than you want, perhaps shying away from the camera or stiffening your lips to hide your teeth then dental veneers are one solution for attaining a perfect smile.
You may not be happy with the appearance of your teeth due to cracks, misalignment or discolouration. Veneers Canberra can be an option for people who, for example, wish to hide teeth stains caused by years of smoking or wine drinking that cannot be removed through teeth whitening.
Due to the smooth surface of the ceramic material, stain-causing substances find it difficult to stick, hence making porcelain veneers highly stain resistant. However, it is still advisable to cut down on stain-causing substances in the interests of your general health and wellbeing.
If you are looking for a way to make your smile look natural and youthful, then veneer teeth are worth considering. Even on close inspection, it is difficult for people to distinguish veneers from real teeth, but instead people will just notice a wonderful, confident smile.
Dental Veneers Canberra are a good treatment option for enhanced aesthetics and at Identity Dentistry, we value patients and the expected results they have after treatment. Coming out of our clinic and completing treatment with a smile that you deserve is of utmost importance to us.
Because of this, we recommend dental veneers to:
- Conceal chipped teeth
- Restore minimally fractured teeth
- Provide a uniform smile— with perfect symmetry and appearance
- Fill black triangles on receded gum line caused by gum recession
- Close minimal tooth gaps without having to wear braces
- Lengthen worn down teeth to better the appearance
- Whiten teeth with stubborn yellow or brown stains
- Positively enhance your wellbeing with a confident smile
It is important to remember that Dental Veneers are a cosmetic treatment and are an excellent aesthetic option for a brighter, better smile. While they are made from durable materials that can withstand biting forces, they are not to be made as substitutes for teeth in terms of strength as they are not made to restore health and function.
For your first visit, our dentists are to evaluate whether you are a suitable candidate for veneers. This includes assessing the health of your teeth and gums and your current oral hygiene and if it is properly maintained, ensuring that you have enough tooth enamel to receive the veneers, and identifying your specifications and expected results.
From this, our dental professionals are able to coordinate with you on what should be the material of choice for your dental veneers.
2. Preparing your Teeth
Our dentists are to make sure that this treatment is made as minimally invasive as possible so tooth reduction is made only until necessary. This is to keep the bulk of the material seamlessly bonded to the tooth surface, making it indiscernible when you smile.
After tooth preparation, molds are made to help with designing the veneers and to guarantee a perfect fit.
3. Fitting and Cementation
Composite Veneers are made chairside and in one appointment. Fitting and cementation are done on the same day of tooth preparation.
Meanwhile, Porcelain Ceramic Veneers are fabricated in the laboratory. A longer process is necessary to ensure superb aesthetics and great fit. Once ready, your dentist is to fit and hold the veneers in place so you can check for the look of it.
Minor alterations can be carried out by the dentist as well. And when you are both happy with the appearance, your dentist can proceed with cementing your perfect smile in place.
Whilst assessing your suitability for veneers, our dentists will present you with all possible treatment options for your teeth. The application of veneers is then usually completed within two appointments.
During the first appointment, one of our dentists will take a mould of your teeth which will then serve as a blueprint for creating the veneers according to your precise needs and measurements. They will discuss with you what type of look and appearance you are after and the dentists will explain how they can best achieve a natural and aesthetically pleasing smile that suits you individually.
The ultra-thin veneer will then be designed and made so that in the second appointment it can be bonded to your existing tooth. Dental veneers are a minimally invasive procedure that can dramatically enhance the appearance of your teeth and smile, resulting in a wonderful transformation.
Types of Veneers
For Veneers Canberra at Identity Dentistry, we have two types of Veneers available at our clinic. You can discuss with your dentist your expected results after the procedure and your other specifications so they can recommend the best option for your case.
Composite Veneers are made from flexible polymer and ceramic-based material. They are an excellent choice for concealing minor flaws and discolourations. They are designed to closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth while boasting stain resistance and excellent fit.
However, this ceramic material is prone to chipping and only has a life expectancy of only 5 – 10 years. Our dentists recommended this option to help with deciding whether to invest in the more durable but more expensive Ceramic Porcelain Veneers.
This type of veneer is the gold standard material for Dental Veneers as they create the appearance closest to the natural teeth, including translucency, sheen, hue, and feel, making them the superior choice for Dental Veneers.
With the use of Emax technology, Ceramic Veneers are made from more durable material with the technology providing optimum fit over the tooth surface. This kind of veneer is an investment that can last for 10 – 20 years provided that good oral hygiene is maintained.
Our dental professionals hold the highest degree of skill and knowledge for the fabrication of your Dental Veneers Canberra to guarantee that you will love and appreciate the results after the treatment. We use only the best equipment and the highest quality of material to ensure that your smile investment is in good hands with us.
