Veneers in Coopers Plains – What are they?
When we talk about dental veneers as a whole, we are actually talking about two different types. Porcelain veneers, for example, are thin shells of tooth-coloured dental material that are custom-fabricated in a local dental laboratory and bonded to the front surface of the teeth.
- Worn Down
- Chipped or broken
- Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
Composite veneers, on the other hand, are made from a composite resin that is applied directly to the surface of the existing problem tooth to create a natural cosmetic repair.
Whether you’re considering composite veneers or porcelain veneers you should come and talk to the Sure Smile Dental team in Coopers Plains and we will explain your options and costs allowing you to make an informed dental decision.
Dental Veneers in Coopers Plains – The Procedure?
Composite dental veneers can be completed in one appointment. The resin (the same material we use for white fillings) is bonded directly to the front surface of the teeth and then shaped by hand and polished to give it a natural-looking sheen.
Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are custom-fabricated in a Brisbane dental lab and then bonded into place onto your teeth. The end result is a more permanent fixture which can last for many years.
To accommodate your porcelain dental veneers, Coopers Plains patients will (in most cases) need to have a thin layer of tooth enamel removed. This will enable a secure bond to be achieved.
Teeth are then prepared and an impression is taken and sent off to the lab for fabrication. Once your veneers are ready, you will be called back for a fitting. Our Coopers Plains dentist will check your custom-veneers for fit and bite before bonding them securely into place. The procedure normally takes 2 or more visits over several weeks.
