Veneers Mullumbimby NSW
Veneers can change the entire look and feel of your teeth, to give you a natural and healthy-looking smile.
Veneers can completely transform the look of your smile. They can help to fix a range of different issues and enhance the overall appearance of your smile. The main purpose of veneers is to completely refresh the appearance of your smile with a rapid turnaround time, so that you don’t have to wait for your dream smile. Veneers are a durable and long-lasting option to fix a range of cosmetic dental issues, and they can help to restore function to teeth that have suffered minor trauma or damage.
What can veneers fix?
Veneers can safely and effectively fix a range of different cosmetic dental issues, some of which include:
- Cracked teeth
- Misshapen or poorly aligned teeth
- Gaps in between teeth
- Improve discoloured or stained teeth
- Correct the length or size of teeth
- Improve the look of ‘gummy smiles’
- Restore teeth that have been worn down from bruxism (grinding)
- Fix the appearance of crooked teeth
One of the biggest advantages of veneers is that they have an immediate effect, unlike the long treatment time of orthodontics which in most cases takes around 1-2 years, and is often followed by other cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening. Our veneers are made from an extremely durable porcelain material that, if properly cared for, can last for decades.
What is involved in the procedure?
Having veneers placed is a minimally invasive process and provides instant results. Your dentist will be able to discuss your concerns and needs with you, so that they can work with you towards the look you’re trying to achieve. To begin with, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth to ensure your veneers are properly customised to fit your teeth perfectly. Before the veneers are applied, your dentist will prepare your teeth by roughening their surface, and then the veneers will be trimmed and put into place using a specialised cement to bond the veneer to the tooth. The bond will be set using a special light which is applied to the veneer to activate the bonding agent and ensure the veneer is properly fused with the tooth. Lastly, the veneers are polished to ensure they have a beautiful shine. Many of our dentists often like to schedule follow up appointments to monitor the progress of your veneers.
