Transform the look of your teeth and smile effectively with porcelain veneers, a cosmetic dentistry treatment available at Teeth @ Mittagong
As a great alternative to prolonged orthodontic treatment, porcelain veneers provide a cosmetic solution to chipped, cracked, broken, discoloured and crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers are made from strong, durable materials. They are long-lasting and flawless in design.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are essentially thin porcelain shells that are crafted to your unique smile. This cosmetic dentistry treatment is carried out in as little as two separate appointments. See below for more information.
The porcelain veneers treatment process:
· Initial Consultation
After discussing the treatment in-depth with one of our experienced dentists and discerning the appropriateness of the treatment, as well as your desires, we will formulate a unique treatment plan for you. This will include how white you want your porcelain veneers to be, the desired shape you want your veneers to exhibit (if you want shorter, longer, wider, thinner teeth), what you want your veneers to cover and more.
· Tooth Perpetration
Once all the details have been confirmed, our skilled dentist and support team will remove a thin amount of the tooth enamel on the teeth that are changing. This stage is necessary so that the new porcelain veneers blend in seamlessly with the natural teeth. Without this stage, the veneers may appear bulky. Once the teeth are prepared, your dentist will send an impression of your teeth to a laboratory where the porcelain veneers will be fabricated and designed to your specific cosmetic desires.
Once the porcelain veneers are fabricated, your dentist will carefully bond the veneers one at a time to the teeth. During this stage your cosmetic dentist will take special care to ensure each individual veneer is perfectly suited to your facial structure and smile. Now you are free to share your beautifully rejuvenated smile.
How long do veneers last?
Made of porcelain for its unique ability to be stain resistant and incredibly durable, your veneers will look just like a naturally beautiful smile. With a good oral hygiene routine and a healthy lifestyle, your porcelain veneers should last for around 7 – 10 years.
