Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are one of the most effective and popular restorative treatments to rejuvenate teeth with discolouration, chips and in some cases align crooked teeth to help create a beautiful smile.

Finely crafted from thin pieces of porcelain, veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth and are incredibly strong and durable. Veneers are an ideal solution for creating the look you have always wanted and are a more conservative option than a dental crown.

The Procedure

Involves a minimal amount of tooth enamel being removed by light buffing (usually 1/2mm) in preparation for the porcelain, which is sculptured and shaped to improve or straighten your natural smile. A colour or shade match is agreed upon.

During the interim, the dentist will place a temporary veneer to create a blueprint for your new smile. Once the preparation for the veneer is complete, another appointment 2 weeks after is scheduled to secure the porcelain veneer into place.

Usually a nightguard (splint) is recommended for people with signs of grinding and it is essential to wear a sports mouthguard for playing any contact sports to protect your veneered and natural teeth.

Optimal oral health will significantly contribute to the success and longevity of your new veneers, regular appointments with Melbourne MD will keep your new smile looking beautiful for many years.
