If you don’t love the smile looking back at you in the mirror, it’s time to consider veneers. Veneers are made from either a porcelain or composite material to enhance the appearance of your smile. Veneers are essentially false fronts that are placed on the teeth by a cosmetic dentist in Melbourne to hide cosmetic flaws. The simple and safe procedure will quickly transform your less than perfect smile into a smile of perfection.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are very thin false fronts that are placed on the front side of the teeth to cover cosmetic flaws while giving the teeth a more proportionate look. While composite resin veneers are more affordable, most prefer porcelain veneers in Melbourne because they provide a more natural look. Not to mention, porcelain veneers are thinner so less of the tooth’s structure has to be removed during the bonding process, allowing more of the tooth to stay intact.
What are the Benefits of Veneers?
Veneers are fairly versatile and can be used as an alternative to other treatments. Often, veneers are used to hide cosmetic imperfections, like dark tooth discoloration, misshaped teeth, chips, and cracks. In some cases, veneers can be used as an alternative option for orthodontic treatment. Those who have small gaps or overcrowding can have their smile appear straighter by having veneers applied. For those who have shorter teeth, veneers will make the teeth appear longer and more proportionate.
What’s Involved with the Procedure?
Receiving dental veneers involves a very simple procedure that produces very little pain or discomfort. Most often, you will require two appointments. However, sometimes you can benefit from no-prep veneers. Most of the time, you’ll need an initial appointment to prepare the teeth for bonding. This will involve etching the surface of the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. This is necessary to ensure a strong bond between the veneer and the tooth.
Once your teeth have been prepped, we will then take images and impressions to create your custom veneers. Your veneers will be made to match your exact specifications, including size, shape, and color. While your veneers are being made, we will attach temporary veneers to your teeth. After your final veneers have been created and meet the exact criteria, we will remove the temporary veneers and attach the final veneers. In just a few simple steps, you’ll have a dazzling smile transformation to love the smile looking back at you in the mirror.
