Veneers – Brisbane Southside
A tooth veneer is a thin shell of porcelain placed over your natural teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.
This cosmetic dentistry treatment covers the underlying colour, shape, size and position of your natural teeth, in porcelain veneers.
When used on one or across many teeth can ultimately create a more uniform smile, with very minimal tooth preparation.
What are the advantages of Porcelain veneers?
Veneers have numerous restorative and cosmetic benefits. These benefits include:
- Eliminate any spaces between your teeth
- Restore broken or chipped teeth
- Replace stained, discoloured and unsightly marks or fillings
- Cover permanently stained teeth (due to antibiotic or fluorosis staining)
- Straighten crooked or rotated teeth
- Whiten your teeth
Veneers are often used as an alternative to crowns, as they are extremely thin and require little or no anaesthesia during preparation. Veneers require minimal natural tooth to be removed for a secure bond to be achieved.
Are Veneers strong?
Yes! Although Veneers are only about 0.3- 0.5mm in thickness, once bonded to your teeth, they are very strong. Porcelain has a naturally translucent nature to it, so the appearance is extremely close to your original enamel tooth surface.
How are Veneers made?
Veneers are made from impressions of your natural teeth. These provide an exact structure of each tooth, creating a veneer that will look and feel like your natural tooth. This will fit in well with the surrounding teeth so once your veneer has been placing it is often difficult for anyone to tell that you actually have veneers
