Lillybrook Dental Kallangur creates beautiful smiles with porcelain veneers
Treatment with porcelain or ceramic veneers is a way to regain a natural smile by restoring the front surface of the tooth, reducing gaps and building up worn teeth so they appear natural, as new.
As a function of teeth undergoing natural and accidental changes, becoming stained, moving out of alignment, or suffering chips or cracks that detract from our overall appearance, porcelain veneers offer the benefit of a return to their natural appearance.
When should I get porcelain or ceramic veneers?
- Spaces between teeth
- Teeth that are broken, cracked or chipped
- Teeth which are coloured or stained
- Different shaped or crooked teeth
- Fillings which detract from the appearance of your teeth
How are porcelain veneers made?
Each porcelain or ceramic veneer is custom made to a particular tooth to which it is bonded. The surface of the tooth will have been prepared in advance of the application of the veneer. It may take a little time for your mouth to become accustomed to the changed shape, though teeth cleaning and flossing can continue as usual.
An alternative option is the use of composite resin, layered onto the tooth by the dentist, hardened and polished to appear natural.
A follow up visit with your dentist within a couple of weeks of your veneers being attached is advisable.
