Are you self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth? Have you ever imagined acquiring that perfect smile? Have you accidentally damaged or chipped your tooth? If yes, then dental veneers may be a perfect option for you. Dental veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures among most people due to the fantastic results it can achieve.
Veneers are ultra-thin shells of a composite resin material or ceramic (porcelain), which are bonded to the front of the teeth. The procedure of acquiring a veneer requires little to no anaesthesia and can be an ideal choice for improving the front teeth appearance. Veneers are placed to brighten teeth, mask discolouration and improve the smile. At Springvale Dental Clinic, we feel that with dental veneers, planning is the key to success. We ensure shape, colour and size are visualised and discussed with our smile design before we can start treatment. We first listen to each of our patients and know what exactly there are looking to achieve with dental veneers. If a straight white smile is what you desire, we ensure that is exactly what you will achieve. If you are looking for a more rounded natural appearance, we will work with you at the planning stage to ensure that you achieve exactly what you want.
Dental veneers are a perfect alternative to dental crowns in many ways. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing tooth shape, colour and size. They can mask undesirable defects such as damage due to injury, stained by tetracycline or as a result of a root canal procedure. They are also ideal for masking discoloured fillings in the front teeth. Patients with worn teeth or gaps between the teeth may also consider dental veneers. Generally, veneers are durable and can last for many years when performed by a well-trained dental professional.
You will go through a period of adjustment for about a week or two after the procedure of acquiring them. This is because your teeth have now changed in shape and size. Brush and floss on a daily basis. Your dentist will ask you to return for follow-up appointments after one or two weeks.
A good candidate for veneers practices good oral hygiene on a daily basis and has healthy gums with no periodontal disease. It is vital to discuss your cosmetic dental goals with our dentists and team at Springvale Dental Clinic so that we can create a smile that meets your expectations.
