Ceramic Veneers Wantirna South

Ceramic Veneers | Dentist Wantirna South
Ceramic veneers are shells of tooth-colored materials that are designed to cover the surface of your teeth to improve your appearance. They are used to fix teeth that are chipped, broken, misaligned, stained or with gaps.

Dental veneers can be made from composite materials or porcelain. Porcelain resists stains better than resin and looks more natural. On the other hand, resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before they are placed.

Veneers offer the following advantages:

  • They provide a natural tooth appearance.
  • Ceramic veneers are stain-resistant.
  • Veneers are a stronger, more aesthetic alternative to crowns.
  • The colour of a porcelain veneer can be selected

Getting a dental veneer usually requires three trips- one for a consultation and two to make and apply the veneers.

The process we use at Dr Sachdeva’s dental clinic is as follows:

  • During the first appointment we examine your teeth to make sure dental veneers are appropriate for you and discuss what the procedure will involve and some of its limitations. We sometimes take X-rays and make impressions of your mouth and teeth.
  • At the second visit, we prepare your tooth for a veneer by removing about 0.5millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface. This will be replaced by the veneer to be added. This is usually done with a local anesthetic to numb the area.
  • Next, we make a model or impression of your tooth which we send out to a dental laboratory for the construction of the veneer. This usually takes about 2-3 weeks.
  • On the third visit, we cement the veneer to your tooth. Before the dental veneer is permanently cemented to your tooth, it is trimmed to achieve the proper fit. Here we adjust the veneer colour with the shade of cement to be used. Next, we roughen the tooth to allow for a strong bonding process.
  • A special cement is applied to the veneer and the veneer is then placed on your tooth.
  • Then we apply a special light beam to the dental veneer, which activates chemicals in the cement causing it to harden quickly.
  • The final steps involve removing any excess cement, evaluating your bite and making any final adjustments in the veneer as necessary.
