You are diligent about brushing and flossing—as well as visiting your Paddington, NSW dental clinic every six months for check-ups and cleans. But still, you avoid showing your smile because you don’t like the way you look. Or perhaps you avoid smiling altogether.
If you have always thought cosmetic dentistry to be reserved only for the rich and famous, perhaps you should think again. Today’s cosmetic dentistry is designed to fit many different budgets—and we also offer third-party payment options to make cosmetic dentistry affordable.
Teeth veneers are a great way to camouflage a multitude of flaws with the teeth, and perhaps teeth veneers are the right option for you.
What Are Teeth Veneers?
Teeth veneers are ultra-thin shells that cover up the teeth that show when you smile. They have a translucency very similar to the teeth you were born with, so they look natural and beautiful—only better. We can brighten, straighten or perfect your smile with veneers. If you have misaligned, chipped or gapped teeth, veneers might be a great option.
Are Veneers Permanent?
Because we will have to remove some of the surface of the tooth before applying the veneers, they are considered a permanent cosmetic dentistry procedure. Removing some of the tooth’s surface keeps the veneers from appearing too ‘bulky.’
How Long Will Veneers Last?
With proper care, your veneers can last for a decade or even longer. The good news is that veneers cannot develop tooth decay, but the bad news is that the teeth behind them still can. You can also develop gum disease if you don’t brush and floss properly. We also recommend twice-yearly visits to our Paddington, NSW dental clinic for exams and cleanings—as well as to check the integrity of the veneers.
The perfect smile you have been seeking could be yours with veneers. We invite you to call to learn more.
