Ever smiled at the mirror only to see your front teeth with old fillings that are discoloured and have stained margins? The colour, shape and spacing of the front teeth can be significantly improved with veneers that cover the whole front surface of the teeth.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed permanently in front of your teeth in order to improve the appearance of your teeth, giving each tooth a smoother, whiter and consistent finish. Whiter teeth aside, veneers can also used to change the size, shape or length of your teeth.
Composite veneers are engineered resin placed on the top of the outer surface of your teeth. The resin is matched with the colour of your teeth for the most natural look, and is placed on your teeth in the same visit. Given this, composite veneers are a great affordable option for an instant smile make-over, natural colour and a good transition towards porcelain material in the future. They do however require regular maintenance of polishing to keep them bright.
With good, regular maintenance, composite veneers should last approximately 4 to 8 years.
Porcelain veneers are small, wafer-thin shells that are bonded to the outside of your teeth. They are prepared chairside by the dentist and made in a Melbourne-based dental ceramic lab with the highly aesthetic and biocompatible ceramic material that is stain-free and very durable.
While ceramic veneers only require one appointment, porcelain veneers can take up to three appointments to complete; one for an in-depth assessment, the second to take moulds of your teeth, and the third to install them.
One of the biggest advantages to porcelain veneers, is that they require very minimal maintenance compared to composite veneers, and are a long-lasting option, lasting as long as 10 to 15 years with proper care. Porcelain veneers are also far more durable than composite veneers, and are less prone to chipping.
