What are porcelain veneers?

A Porcelain Veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. Porcelain Veneers Sydney and dental crowns Veneers can improve the colours, shape and position of teeth.

Dental veneers enhance your smile

Dental Veneers are often used to close small gaps when the use of braces is not suitable or practical. Veneers are attached directly to your existing tooth structure, with a minimal amount of the original tooth removed. We will take an impression of your original tooth, to make an exact fitting replica. The exterior of the veneer can be altered and shaped, to take into account any cosmetic changes that you require. Before the new veneer is fitted, a strong bonding resin is applied to the tooth, to help the veneer adhere.

Porcelain is the ideal medium for veneers as it has a natural tooth color and translucence, and resists staining. When applied to teeth using the latest dental techniques, porcelain is also extremely strong and durable.

How The Porcelain Tooth Veneer Procedure Works

At the second visit, the veneers are carefully treated and bonded to your teeth. In just two visits, you can achieve your treatment goals. Unlike dental bonding, some of the many advantages include color stability and increased resistance to fracture and staining.

How long dental veneers last

Porcelain and composite veneers are bonded to your teeth, but they are not meant to be a long-term solution.

Taking good care of veneers can extend their lifespan, but veneer teeth rarely last a lifetime if they aren’t properly cared for. For those with minor issues that can be fixed without an implant, they are a cost-effective alternative. If you want your composite veneers to last, you’ll need to take good care of them.
