Custom Graceville Cosmetic Dentistry

Imperfections That Veneers Address

Instead of acting as a restorative procedure where decaying or damaged teeth are repaired, veneers use high-grade porcelain materials to mask the tooth behind them to improve its outward appearance. They’re useful for addressing aesthetic concerns such as teeth with:

  • Gaps
  • Minor crowding
  • Discolouration and stains
  • Atypical shape or length
  • Chipped or worn edges

The Dental Veneer Process

Every dental veneer case at Essential Care Dental begins with a personal consultation where your concerns and goals are discussed. If you have pictures of smiles that you like (or don’t like) feel free to bring them with you to this appointment.
If you qualify for veneers, we’ll discuss how many you need and the costs involved. Depending on your smile’s shape, you may require as few as 4-6 veneers or as many as 8-10. We’ll take a series of X-rays and impressions to map out a wax model that you can preview so that you know exactly what the results will look like before you commit to the next phase of treatment.
After your veneer design and colour have been specified, you’ll begin the preparation phase. At this appointment, the teeth getting veneers will be gently reshaped and new impressions taken. Some local anaesthetic will be needed to minimise sensitivity. Temporary veneers will be placed while your permanent ones are being made.

About two weeks later, your hand-designed porcelain veneers will be ready to bond in place. As soon as the bonding agent is set, you’ll be able to show off your new look.
