Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Everyone’s teeth are unique and whilst some people are lucky enough to show off dazzlingly white, straight and perfect teeth, the majority of us have teeth with “character”. There is a way, however, that you can achieve a natural and healthy smile, albeit with a little bit of help from our dentists.

Dental veneers are custom-made casings that fit neatly over the natural tooth giving it a more uniform appearance and hiding any tooth defects.

Do You Need Veneers?

 

As a dental treatment, Veneers are used for a range of cosmetic reasons:

  • To disguise a chipped or broken tooth
  • To act as protection for weak, cracked or fractured teeth
  • To improve the appearance of discoloured teeth
  • To close small gaps in teeth
  • To help strengthen teeth that have undergone root canal surgery

Dental Veneers present a very simple solution to some of the most common problems experienced with teeth and the overall effect can transform your whole smile.

If you book a full dental checkup today, we can assess your suitability for veneers and check the health of your teeth and gums.

 

 

Composite Veneers or Porcelain Veneers?

 

Composite veneers are made out of white resin material that is customised for your teeth and can be tailored to the shade that you are looking for to give a natural result.

This type of dental veneer is usually used to fix small tooth imperfections like small chips or cracks in the teeth or as a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers. Composite veneers have the advantage and convenience of being made whilst you wait in the dentist’s chair.

Porcelain veneers require a little more preparation and customisation to hide more obvious defects and to give a natural look.

Contact us today to schedule a consultation at K1 Dental, Melbourne.

For porcelain veneers, once your teeth have been examined and the veneer treatment plan fully explained, you will need two further appointments. One to fit the temporary dental veneers in place and another appointment around two weeks following to fit the porcelain veneers in place.
