What if it were possible to have picture perfect teeth without needing to go through years of cosmetic and restorative treatment in order to obtain them? It isn’t only for those people who have great dental genes, anybody can benefit from having straight, white, even teeth without needing to undergo any kind of invasive surgery or spend years with aligners or other treatments.
Porcelain veneers are a conservative, restorative treatment that strengthens the tooth and allows a person to maintain their natural teeth for as long as possible, as well as providing patients with picture perfect teeth that they can be confident enough to share with the world.
A dentist in Mackay is always delighted to educate their patients on the multiple benefits this treatment has to offer and to inform the multitude of people that it can help. Those who have discoloured teeth due to root canal treatments or from food or smoking stains, those who have worn down, chipped or broken teeth, or even those who have misaligned teeth or teeth with gaps between them can all use dental veneers as a treatment to rectify these issues.
What exactly is a porcelain veneer?
It is a very thin layer of ceramic, something similar to a false nail, that is placed over the front teeth in order to protect them from damage and stains. They are specifically designed for each individual, so therefore if they wish to straighten a wonky smile or close any gaps, then the treatment can be designed to accommodate these wishes.
The shells are bonded to the teeth in a way that allows them to last for a long time when cared for properly. A dentist will discuss the ways to care for the veneers and how long they can be expected to last for, until some further work needs to be done in order to maintain or replace them.
How does the treatment work?
A patient should expect this procedure to take a few visits to finalise, as veneers are custom made for each person. During the first consultation at Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay, teeth and gums will be thoroughly evaluated and the teeth will be prepared for the veneers.
An impression of the teeth will also be taken so that a professional is able to custom create the veneers for each of their patients. This enables the best possible result as the smile is as natural looking as possible.
At the next appointment, the veneers will have been made and will be ready to cement to the patient’s teeth. This is done with the best quality materials to ensure that the teeth remain strong and healthy and that they last for a long time. With proper maintenance and care, the veneers should be expected to last for more than 10 years.
It is a minimally invasive procedure that many people can enjoy and produces a beautiful and natural looking smile that can be enjoyed for a long time. It is a great solution for those who have slight issues with their teeth and want a quick, easy long-lasting and positive solution. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
