Dental Veneers Sunshine Coast

WHAT ARE DENTAL VENEERS Sunshine Coast?

Teeth that are badly stained, shaped or crooked may be improved by a dental veneer placed on the surface of the affected teeth.

Dental veneers Sunshine Coast are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their colour or shape. Dental veneers Sunshine Coast are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discoloured, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Little or no anaesthesia is needed. Veneers have a longer life expectancy and colour stability than bonding, and highly resist permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking.

Veneers are usually made by a dental lab technician working from a model provided by your dentist.

Dental veneers Sunshine Coast are usually irreversible because it`s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.

Porcelain dental veneers Sunshine Coast can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline, by an injury, or as a result of a root-canal procedure, and are ideal for masking discoloured fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider porcelain veneers.

Typically, dental veneers sunshine coast entail at least three appointments: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding.

During the tooth preparation visit, usually lasting one to two hours, the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the small added thickness of the dental veneer. Usually, about a half a millimetre of the tooth is removed, which may require a local anaesthetic. During the same visit, a mould is taken of the teeth, and sent to the laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers.

During the final “bonding” visit, also about one or two hours, the veneers are placed on the tooth surface with water or glycerine on the teeth to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or colour. While the dental veneers are resting on your teeth, they can be adjusted with various shades of cement to match the colour of your teeth. To apply the veneer, the tooth is cleansed with specific chemicals to achieve a bond. Once a special cement is sandwiched between the veneer and tooth, a visible light beam, or laser, causes a catalyst to be released, hardening the cement.

During a two-week period of adjustment that follows, you may notice the change of size and shape in your teeth. It is important to brush and floss daily. After one or two weeks, you`ll return for a follow-up appointment. Porcelain veneers are reasonable facsimiles of natural teeth, not perfect replacements. It`s not uncommon to see slight variations in the colour of porcelain veneers upon close inspection, as this occurs even in natural teeth.

For certain patients no preparation of the teeth may be necessary.
