Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured facings that can both repair and enhance the aesthetic appeal of your mouth.
What are dental veneers and reasons for getting them?
Veneers are custom-made thin shells made from either composite or porcelain. They are a thin layer which is placed over the top of the existing tooth structure. Veneers pose a great cosmetic solution for people who have discoloured, worn down, uneven, spaced, misaligned or irregularly shaped front teeth, making their teeth more aesthetically pleasing, but veneers can also serve a functional purpose by protecting the outer layer of a damaged tooth.
Dental Pearls offers veneers made from ceramic porcelain or composite resin materials to perfectly fit your smile.
To make room for veneers, a very slight amount of your tooth enamel will be removed from its surface. Scans will be taken before and after this process to send to the dental laboratory and ensure the correct shape and size.
The process of veneers from Dental Pearls can be relatively swift. However, a couple of appointments may be required to fully complete your treatment as porcelain veneers are fabricated inside a dental laboratory. In the meantime you will receive temporary veneers.
Why should I get veneers?
Patients consider veneers to improve their smile for the following:
- Repair chips, cracks and breaks
- Close gaps between teeth
- Fix unevenly shaped teeth
- Cover up discolouring and stains
- Fixing long or short teeth
Veneers may also be used as a part of a broader smile makeover treatment, which may include other cosmetic dentistry treatments such as teeth whitening, and/or restorative dentistry treatments such as dental crowns and bridges.
Types of dental veneers
Porcelain veneers Brisbane
Porcelain veneers are custom-made according to the shape of your individual teeth. The natural tooth-coloured materials used allow for your smile to look beautiful and completely natural. Porcelain also has an intrinsic stain resistant quality which will help avoid stains. Veneers are extremely durable, strong, and excellent at maintaining clear results.
Composite veneers Brisbane
By choosing composite veneers, you’ll only need one appointment. This treatment can be fully completed in just a single appointment. At Dental Pearls our composite veneers are made carefully in the dental chair by Dr Khatri.
The resin is applied and set with a curing light. The resin is then shaped and polished to provide a naturally beautiful appearance. All without needing a dental laboratory.
Once the initial examination of your teeth has been conducted, the suitable veneer treatment will be decided. Colour and tone is considered to ensure a natural look.
Composite veneers offer a swift and inexpensive option in comparison to their porcelain counterparts. However, the added benefits from porcelain can often be felt in their appearance, durability and stain resistant qualities.
What are the benefits of veneers?
By choosing to get veneers, you will enjoy these benefits:
- Made from durable and strong materials
- Completely customised to your smile
- Completely natural aesthetics
- Enjoy a restored and rejuvenated smile
How long do veneers last?
Your new veneers will last for up to ten years, or perhaps even longer if you care for them appropriately. It’s important to keep good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing and rinsing your mouth out regularly as this will ensure your veneers last as long as possible.
