Veneers in Paddington
If you enjoy good dental health, but your smile isn’t all that it could be, porcelain veneers might be just what you need to take your smile from so-so to sensational. This popular cosmetic dentistry option can dramatically transform your smile in just a couple of visits to our Paddington, NSW dental clinic.
Create a Brilliant Smile with Veneers
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells that fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. They are custom-made in the laboratory to address the specific issue with your smile. These tooth covers, which are a mere 0.3 to 0.5 millimetres thick, look completely natural and cover up flaws.
The Veneers Process
One of the benefits of veneers is that it can give you a whole new smile in just a couple of visits to the dentist. Once our dentists determine that your oral health is well-suited for this cosmetic procedure, you will discuss the goals for your smile. The teeth will need to be prepared for the veneers, so a small amount of the tooth enamel is removed. This ensures that your teeth don’t have a thick look to them once the veneers are placed.
After the lab creates veneers custom-made to correct your smile, you will return to our office so they can be permanently bonded into place. Our dentist will make adjustments as needed, including making sure that you can bite down comfortably.
Dental Issues Veneers Can Address
Veneers are ideal at covering up what you don’t like about your smile, including:
- An alternative to orthodontics, veneers can correct a smile that is crooked or misaligned.
- Gaps or spaces between teeth can be camouflaged with veneers.
- Teeth that are too short can be 'lengthened' with veneers.
- Veneers can hide teeth that are chipped or otherwise damaged.
Veneers Are Long-Lasting
Veneers are strong and durable, and with proper care, they can last for many years. But it’s crucial to use common sense to keep your veneers intact. Avoid biting down on very hard foods or ice, and never use your teeth as tools.
Because they are resistant to stains and decay, it’s easy to take care of veneers. You will still need to protect your gum health by brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once. Don’t use a whitening toothpaste on your veneers as this can cause scratches or other damage to the surface.
Stay current with biannual trips to your dentist to ensure the integrity of the veneers as well as to ensure gums are healthy.
