Porcelain Veneers in Woonona Look Just Like Natural Teeth
If you’re tired of stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth, then why not come and see us at Woonona Dentists. Our highly qualified dentists have years of experience in helping people just like you achieve a perfect smile with porcelain veneers in Woonona, and we can do the same for you.
What is a porcelain veneer?
They’re thin shells of porcelain which cover the teeth a little like a false nail covers a fingernail. They fit to the front of your teeth and are colour-matched to your natural teeth for a seamless finish.
Unlike dental veneers that are made from composite and are sculpted onto the tooth by our dentist, porcelain veneers are made in a 100% Australian dental laboratory and cemented in place.
What can porcelain veneers be used for?
Porcelain veneers are extremely versatile and can be the perfect solution for:
● Badly stained or coloured teeth
● Crooked or misshapen teeth
● Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
● Gaps between teeth
● Visible fillings which appear unattractive
As in all our cosmetic treatments, we ask that you attend a consultation whereby our dentists can assess your oral health and dental needs, to determine if dental veneers are the best solution for you.
Why choose porcelain over composite veneers?
Porcelain has a similar translucency to that of teeth enamel, and therefore looks more natural. In addition, it’s stronger and more durable, and less likely to stain than composite veneers. In fact, our porcelain veneers are available with a lab guarantee of up to 15 years, but please speak to our dentist prior to treatment about the exact fees involved and warranty.
What’s the procedure for porcelain veneers?
In most cases a small layer of tooth enamel will need to be removed from your teeth, using anaesthetic if necessary, so that the veneer will fit flush with your other teeth. Once this has been done, our dentist takes a digital impression of the tooth and surrounding gums and teeth so that your custom veneer can be crafted. If necessary, you’ll be fitted with a temporary veneer until we call you back for your second appointment. During the second appointment, your permanent veneers will be checked and adjusted for fit before being bonded firmly in place.
Are porcelain veneers right for you?
While porcelain veneers can disguise a number of dental problems, they’re not suitable for everyone.
