What are Porcelain Veneers?

At our porcelain veneers Sydney CBD practice, we use thin porcelain shells. This type of veneer is as thin as a contact lens. The dental veneer is crafted to suit your specific needs and requirements. The porcelain veneer is permanently bonded to the tooth for a smile change. This treatment can be used to conceal teeth that are chipped, gapped, stained, discoloured, misaligned, broken or crooked.

Porcelain veneers can, in some cases, be an alternative to dental crowns. Your initial consultation will include assessment of the health of your smile. Professor Ironside needs to ensure you are free of any underlying dental issues such as decay, damage or gum disease. He will fix any conditions found prior to transforming your natural smile.

“Once you have a comprehensive treatment plan, the challenge is then to start prioritising things”

How are porcelain veneers applied?

Prior to getting dental veneers your teeth need to be prepared. We do this by shaving your teeth to achieve the correct shape and size. By doing so, the dental veneer will have a better surface to bond to. This can result in longer lasting and durable treatment.

Upon removing a small amount of enamel, we will take an impression of your tooth. This impression will be what is used to digitally construct your veneers.

Porcelain veneers can be bonded onto a number of teeth. These include the six upper and lower teeth that are visible as you smile. Upon approval, Professor Ironside will bond, contour and polish the veneer to match your natural tooth colour.

How to maintain your dental veneers

With good care, your porcelain veneers should last between 5 to 10 years. It is recommended to brush and floss every day. Avoiding coffee, tea, chewing ice and smoking will increase the longevity of your veneers.

Frequently asked questions about veneers

Can you get veneers on broken teeth?

No, veneers can’t be used to restore a broken tooth. For that you would need a dental crown. These are crafted to suit your specific needs and requirements, including covering up a broken tooth. Not only can a dental crown protect a broken tooth can be used to improve the colour, shape and appearance of your tooth so that your great smile can be restored. The dental crown for a broken tooth is specially crafted and made to protect the tooth and also make it look good.

Before getting veneers, it is important to make sure you are happy with your tooth colour. Veneers do not work with teeth whitening so if you want whiter teeth it is important to do so before getting veneers.

If you continue to practice good oral hygiene habits, your veneers will be with you for many years. To ensure they last, we suggest avoiding coffee, tea, chewing ice and smoking. Doing so will help keep your veneers in pristine condition. It is also important to make sure you brush and floss every day.

Professor Ironside applies porcelain veneers that are stain resistant not stain proof. You need to take care of your veneers to ensure they don’t stain. Over time the surrounding teeth may discolour, in this case, you can get your veneers replaced to match your natural tooth’s change in colour.

Taking care of your veneers could add years onto how long they last for.

Depending on how crooked your teeth are, veneers can be used to fix a tooth alignment and the spacing. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic option as opposed to straightening teeth. Whilst your teeth may look straight, they are not straight underneath the veneer. Dental veneers can give your teeth a straight appearance. Consulting your prosthodontist to see if this is possible is recommended.

Porcelain veneers are an alternative to dental crowns and are made from porcelain shells as thin as a contact lens. Veneers can be stronger and longer lasting.

Veneers are a fast and effective option for concealing your cosmetic dental concerns

Porcelain veneers look authentic and effectively strengthen teeth, repair dental flaws and dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. They can be used to conceal:

  • Gaps
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Discolouration
  • Excessive gum tissue

It’s important to understand that the placement of veneers involves the permanent removal of a small amount of natural tooth structure. Once veneers are applied, it is not possible to revert to your original, natural teeth.

Maintaining veneers requires proper oral hygiene, avoiding excessive force or impact, minimising exposure to staining substances, and regular dental check-ups. While they are not difficult to maintain, it’s important to follow these guidelines to ensure their longevity and appearance.

Dental veneers offer several advantages, including:

  • Improved Appearance: Veneers can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile. They can address a range of cosmetic concerns such as discolouration, stains, chipped or worn teeth, uneven spacing, and misalignment. Veneers are custom-made to achieve the desired shape, size, and colour, resulting in a natural-looking, attractive smile.
  • Versatility: Veneers are a versatile cosmetic treatment that can be used to enhance the appearance of one tooth or transform the entire smile. They can be applied to individual teeth or multiple teeth, depending on your specific needs and goals.
  • Conservative Approach: Compared to other cosmetic dental treatments, veneers require minimal removal of tooth structure. Only a thin layer of enamel is typically removed to accommodate the veneer, preserving the majority of the natural tooth structure.
  • Stain Resistance: Veneers are made from materials, such as porcelain or composite resin, that are resistant to staining. This means that they can maintain their colour and brightness over time, even when exposed to common staining substances like coffee, tea, or tobacco.
  • Durability: Veneers are designed to be long-lasting with proper care. With good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups, veneers can provide many years of improved aesthetics and functionality.
  • Quick Transformation: The process of getting veneers is relatively fast compared to some other cosmetic dental procedures. Once the teeth are prepared, veneers can be fabricated and placed within a few appointments, allowing for a relatively quick transformation of your smile.

It’s important to note that the suitability of veneers may vary depending on individual factors, such as the health and alignment of your natural teeth. Consulting with a qualified dentist or prosthodontist will help determine if veneers are the right option for you and address any questions or concerns you may have.
