Do You Want a Brighter Smile? Call Putney Dental For Cosmetic Dentistry
If you want a winning smile that covers up those stained, chipped and worn out teeth, then cosmetic dentistry is the answer, for more information call us today on (02) 9808 2588. In the world of cosmetic dentistry, veneers remain very popular. There are two types of veneers-porcelain and composite.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are custom-made porcelain laminates that are applied and bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are used to mask teeth that are crooked to cover up gaps, stains and chips.
The process begins with a consultation with our qualified cosmetic dentistry expert where you will discuss the desired look you would like to achieve. Next is preparation. The enamel on the teeth is prepared gently to be fitted with veneers to maintain the same tooth thickness. Then, we take an impression of your teeth so the tool can be shaped for a perfect fit, resembling the colour and shape of your existing teeth. Temporary veneers may be placed on your teeth while your veneers are being made.
At your next visit, we test your veneer prior to cementing them. This way, we can ensure that you are happy with the colour and shape of your new teeth. Once you are satisfied with the results, we proceed with the permanent application of your custom veneer. And voila, a new rejuvenated smile!
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers:
- Minimal reduction of tooth enamel
- More natural-looking option
- Strong and stain-resistant
- May last 10-15 years with proper care
- Produces very little pain or discomfort
Why Go for Composite Veneers?
For cosmetic dentistry patients looking for a smile makeover with a smaller price tag, composite veneers are a good alternative. Most importantly, they give you an instant result. This is because they can be built directly in your mouth in just a single visit to the dentist. These type of veneers are easily bonded and molded to the front of your teeth. Another advantage of composite veneers is that they do not require any tooth reduction.
All in all, composite types can offer an equal standard of improvement to your smile the same way porcelain veneers do. Note more care is required as these veneers may chip when under a lot of pressure. Composite materials may be cheaper than porcelain but they also score less on the durability scale. Prepare for the possibility that you might need to replace them more often.
