If you have imperfect teeth, dental veneers can be applied to improve their appearance. A veneer is a thin layer of material placed over an individual tooth. The material is able to fit over or bond to the front of the tooth in a way that looks completely seamless and natural. This is a great option for people with chipped, cracked, or even discoloured teeth, with different materials and shapes used depending on the shape of the tooth and mouth.
Here at Tarneit Dental Care, we offer veneers in a range of materials, including ceramic, porcelain, and a composite resin material. Regardless of the shape and material you choose, veneers provide a more conservative approach than dental crowns. Veneers are useful in a range of situations, either to repair small fractures or reshape teeth after major orthodontic work. The ability to choose the materials and shapes that best match your teeth makes them an excellent alternative to crowns. While porcelain veneers are more expensive, they also look more natural and need less maintenance over time.
The veneer procedure
Composite veneers are generally more affordable and easier to install. Once your dentist has checked your mouth, the underlying tooth is prepared and the filling material is applied in layers through bonding. This process often requires a single visit to the dentist. Porcelain and ceramic veneers can involve a few trips to the dentist, with an initial assessment followed by tooth preparation, temporary veneer placement, and permanent veneer placement a couple of weeks later. We have the ability to perform a range of veneer treatments and can offer advice on how to care for your veneers once you leave the dentist chair. Contact us today to learn more.
