Porcelain Veneers

HEALTH SERVICES BUSINESS OF THE YEAR

Natural, Long Lasting Porcelain Veneers

A beautiful smile is the centerpiece of who we are and how we feel. When you are able to smile confidently you feel good and make people around you feel good. Veneers is one of the most popular treatments in Cosmetic Dentistry and could completely transform your smile.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells, the thickness of a fingernail that are placed over your existing teeth to provide a new surface, whiter colour or new shape. They are made of translucent tooth coloured porcelain materials and provide a strong aesthetic solution to your cosmetic dentistry concerns.

Veneers leave the natural tooth structure in place and simply cover over imperfections. If you believe your teeth are too small, round, triangular or any other odd shape, the veneer shell can cover this and make the appearance of your individual teeth uniform. This technique can be used for one or more teeth depending on your individual requirements.

Service Transformation

Porcelain veneers can transform an average smile with discoloured teeth and mismatched shapes into a straight, white, aesthetically pleasing smile.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

There are many benefits of porcelain veneers. A veneer procedure can correct many dental problems at the same time including:

1   SOLVE MULTIPLE DENTAL PROBLEMS 

One of the most significant advantages of porcelain veneers is the fact that they can solve so many dental problems at the same time including: discoloration, misaligned teeth, cracked teeth, and gaps in your smile. However, porcelain veneers can serve more than just an aesthetic purpose. Veneers can also protect teeth and improve the function and feel of your smile by: making teeth more symmetrical, creating a smooth arc to your bite, splinting cracked teeth and making short teeth more proportionate.

In many cases, cracked or weakened teeth will no longer need to be replaced after porcelain veneers are applied since the veneer can act as a splint once a tooth has been stabilized. With proper care, porcelain veneers can even help protect your teeth against decay.

2   AN ALTERNATIVE TO ORTHODONTICS

Braces are a huge commitment and investment of your time and energy. Instead of resorting to orthodontics, porcelain veneers allow you to quickly and effectively correct minor dental problems with your teeth. Because of this, veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics.”

For example, teeth that project too far backward or forward can be reshaped by our dentists so when veneers are applied, the arch of your teeth improves, making your smile not only more attractive, but more functional.

3   A WHITER SMILE

Porcelain veneers can also help whiten your smile. When replacing an entire smile line, all of your veneers will be matched to a bright, natural color.

The translucent quality of each veneer allows light to pass through and reflect off your natural teeth, giving your smile a lustrous aesthetic depth. The non-porous surface of porcelain veneers also helps protect against future stains, maintaining the beauty of your smile for many years to come.

How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?

The investment for Porcelain Veneers varies from case to case depending on the number of teeth involved, if gum recontouring is required, the foundation/structure of your teeth, the base colour of your teeth (such as if you have dark tooth), and the arrangement of your teeth.

Outstanding cosmetic work involves talent, artistry and experience of the cosmetic dentist, dental ceramist and the dental team, therefore, the smile makeover results and cost varies from clinic to clinic. The price of Porcelain Veneers are also dependent on the smile design, quality of material and the skills and expertise of the cosmetic dentist as well as the ceramist that are designing your smile.

At Dental Boutique, we offer payment plans and the cost of Porcelain Veneers start from $70 a week, not including any health fund deductions or benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is everything done in just 2 visits?

Some of the cases are done in 2 visits, but there are generally 6 or more visits for more comprehensive treatment. You may have a smile design appointment and review of a diagnostic wax up prior to commencing the actual treatment. The main 2 visits are to shape (prepare) your teeth and to insert (cement) the restorations.

For more comprehensive case, we fine tune your bite and polish your new teeth during the course of several additional visits. We like to check and adjust the bite (if necessary) the day after the temporaries are placed and we always make this appointment when we book your preparation appointment. The second bite adjustment is the day after we cement the porcelain restorations.

What will my temporaries be like?

Your temporaries will be beautiful, but the final result will be much better. Temporaries feel unusual and not as smooth as porcelain. The colour may be lighter or darker than desired in the final result, but this provides an opportunity for you to let us know your preference. They may feel tight. They will be connected so you won’t be able to floss them-but you will be able to brush them and clean between them. The bite may not feel perfect, but it should be functional.

Will I be able to talk normally?

Yes. Once the anaesthetic wears off, you may have difficulty with “s”, “f”, and “th” sounds. If this happens, please let us know so we can help you. This is true for your temporaries as well as for your final restorations.

What if my temporaries come off or break?

It’s ok. Give us a call, we can repair or remake your temporaries. Problems with your temporaries will not affect your “insert” appointment. If you cannot come in, try a denture adhesive like “Polident” to reattach your temporaries.

When can I eat?

While you are in temporaries, a soft diet is recommended. Please avoid tacky food such as cheese, minties and toffee. Once your final restorations are cemented and your bite is adjusted you will gradually return to normal eating.

Will I be sensitive?

Sensitivity is a common factor associated with dental work. It is a good idea to take pain medications shortly before and after your visit. You may be sensitive to hot, cold and biting. This usually passes with time, but it is important to let us know so that we can possibly help you. Sometimes a simple bite adjustment can solve these problems. For patients having more comprehensive treatment we will advise a suitable pain regimen prior to commencing treatment.

Do the restorations always fit on the first try?

As with any dental work, remakes may be necessary if the fit is less than precise. We will not leave you with a restoration which does not meet our exact standards.

What will the final restoration be like?

Porcelain restorations feel as good as or better than natural teeth—and they look like an ideal version of natural teeth. When properly adjusted your bite will be better than ever.

What may I experience after gum lift treatment?

You may experience some slight discomfort to your gums if you are having gum lift treatment. This is something that is very temporary and may last between 1 – 5 days depending on how much work has been done.

During this healing period, you may like to take some Panadol/Nurofen to help with the discomfort. A soft tooth brush, a water jet from the Shaver Shop and some warm salt water will work wonders for the gums to heal.

Bleeding and gum swelling as the gums is still healing may occur. Some people experience more bleeding/swelling than others. If you experience this, please give your Patient Consultant a call and continue to clean the area well so we can keep an eye on it for you and help to reduce the chance of swelling/bleeding.
