Porcelain Dental Veneers

Creating Perfect Smiles
One Tooth At A Time

Achieve Straighter and Whiter Teeth with Porcelain Veneers

Would you like to have a gorgeous white smile?

Of course you would!

Then, Porcelain Veneers could be the answer.

Constructed from strong, high quality porcelains that closely mimic the many shades and translucencies found in natural teeth, each Dental Veneer consists of a thin porcelain shell that fits neatly over the front surfaces of your teeth.

When should Porcelain Veneers be used?

After a careful assessment, Dr Yassmin might recommend the use of Porcelain Veneers to hide a number of imperfections, such as:

  • Discoloured or stained teeth that will not respond to conventional tooth whitening treatments,
  • Minor chips or cracks to teeth, and to replace sections of teeth that have worn away,
  • To lengthen or change the shape of teeth,
  • To recontoure irregularly shaped teeth.
  • To close or minimise gaps in between teeth,
  • To correct teeth that are just slightly out of alignment and where it isn’t necessary to have orthodontic treatment.

How do I get Porcelain Veneers?

During your initial consultation at Broadway Dental’s Sydney, Dr Yassmin will discuss your overall goals and assess your suitability to have Porcelain Veneers fitted.

The next appointment will be to prepare your teeth. Dental veneers are minimally invasive, but it’s usually necessary for Dr Yassmin to remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the front surfaces of your teeth. This helps ensure the finished appearance is natural and aesthetically pleasing. Once your teeth have been shaped for the veneers, an impression is taken for the dental laboratory to have them customised.

This process generally takes a couple of weeks depending on the number of veneers required. During this time we will protect your teeth with temporary veneers, providing you with a preview of your new smile!

The actual Porcelain Veneers will be fitted during your next visit. It might be necessary to make some minor adjustments to get the fit absolutely precise before they are permanently bonded in position.

Using Veneers as part of a Smile Makeover

Dental Veneers are often used in conjunction with other treatments as part of a smile makeover, including:

  • Dental Crowns,
  • Teeth Whitening procedures,
  • Invisalign teeth straightening treatment to help perfect a beautifully aligned smile.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Veneers are suitable for most people.

However, it’s important that teeth are healthy and strong and there are no signs of gum disease prior to fitting any dental veneers.

For teeth that have already been filled or are rather weak, Dr Yassmin may suggest alternative procedures such as dental crowns which, will help perfect your smile while restoring strength to your teeth.

Dental Veneers are an excellent way to help improve your smile. However, it’s important to be aware that this is generally a non-reversible treatment as it’s almost always necessary to remove some of the enamel of the tooth to make room for the veneers.

Only in cases when the removal of the enamel is not necessary may the treatment be reversed.

Dental veneers are very easy to look after as you simply need to brush and floss them exactly as you would your natural teeth.

However, remember that regular check-ups and professional cleanings by the team at Broadway Dental will help keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong and prolong the life of your veneers.

Tooth grinding or Bruxism is a common issue and if not treated could chip or fracture your veneers. Ask us about having a custom-made night guard to help protect your veneers and your natural teeth against damage.
With a proper home dental routine and professional dental care, your veneers should last 10 years or more but they will eventually need replacing.
