Your teeth’s functions are not only limited to chewing your food or as crucial part of speech. They also play an important role in your overall wellbeing – they help keep your confidence high.
Whenever we face other people, our pearly whites are exposed. We smile and they are there, we open our mouth to talk and there they are again. Hence having a perfect set of teeth is very important to keep us confident every minute of the day.
A chipped, cracked, or discoloured tooth can be very disadvantageous. You might not want to smile at all! Fortunately, modern dentistry at Castlemaine Smiles is here to save the day.
At Castlemaine Smiles, we offer you the best porcelain veneers, which help your pearly whites shine, and in almost no time!
What is a Dental/ Porcelain Veneer?
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells used to recreate the natural look of teeth. Measuring only about half a millimeter thick, these thin miracles can quickly create big wonders in your teeth.
Each veneer is individually sculpted for a particular patient making it nearly impossible to tell a veneer from a natural tooth. They are attached to the front surfaces of the tooth and give an immediate smile makeover.
Despite their very thin nature, dental veneers are proven to be durable and resilient compared to natural tooth enamel.
Unlike natural teeth, porcelain veneers resist stains such as those from coffee, tea, and cigarette-smoking residue. Because they are made from porcelain, they mimic the same level of light as that of a natural tooth. So you don’t have to worry about an unnatural shine coming from them.
Benefits of a Dental Veneer
Veneers go a long way beyond simply whitening your teeth. They are also used to correct minor dental problems (change tooth shape, size, and/or color) such as chips, cracks, cover wear and tear, gaps between teeth, and discoloration of teeth that resist regular whitening.
The following are some of the benefits of veneers:
- Strength and durability
- Long-lasting solution – Veneers can last as long as 10 to 15 years, with proper care.
- Natural-looking results
- Cosmetic benefits and enhance confidence – An improved smile can help you feel more confident about your appearance, ultimately giving you a better quality of life.
Procedure and Candidacy
Getting the perfect dental veneer for your needs actually takes only about two appointments. Our skilled dentists at Castlemaine Smiles will first look into your health history and current dental condition to determine if you’re a good candidate for the treatment.
The process starts with a smile analysis to determine the steps necessary to achieve the smile you desire. Your dentist will then show you a picture of how your new smile would look.
What follows is the chipping away of a very small amount of the original tooth enamel. The tooth is then roughened up with phosphoric acid to make sure that the veneer will stay in place. This is essential to restore the natural function of the tooth while creating an even better appearance than before.
The dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of your permanent veneers.
Your dentist will attach temporary veneers until the permanent veneers are ready. On your second and final visit, the permanent veneers are fitted. Your dentist will evaluate the comfort and fit of the veneers before bonding them on your teeth permanently.
The veneers are then fined tuned for a perfect fit and a natural-looking outcome. The result is incredible. With porcelain veneers, achieving a celebrity smile is possible for anyone!
