Porcelain Veneers at New Gisborne, Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek

Porcelain veneers are natural-looking dental prosthetics that can repair or improve the appearance and function of a tooth. Mainly used for the front teeth, they are considered a permanent solution that is durable and resistant to discolouration and chipping. Our team at the Dental House in New Gisborne, Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek are experienced and skilled with dental veneers and can design porcelain veneers that will help improve your smile.

Porcelain Veneers Vs Other Veneers Made from other Materials

Dental veneers are a popular patient solution to help repair teeth, and can be made of either resin or porcelain. While resin is a great choice, porcelain veneers are preferred by most patients because they are resistant to discolouration and staining, and they look and feel the closest to natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers are thin, shell-like teeth coverings that are designed to fit on each tooth that needs it. We customise the veneer to perfectly match the shape and colour of your natural teeth. We utilise the best technology to ensure the fit is comfortable, and a snug fit makes veneers durable.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers come with many benefits including restoring the look and function of your teeth. We know that a broken or chipped tooth can interfere with anyone’s smile, so we work efficiently to create your veneer with precision. You can enjoy your new tooth or teeth quickly and have confidence when you smile. Some of the benefits of porcelain veneers include:
Durable, often lasting 10-15 years or longer with proper care
Customizable so only you know it’s not your real tooth
Stain-resistant so no need to replace for discolouration
Quick results to improve the shape of one or more teeth
Improve a smile quicker than traditional braces
Porcelain mimics the feel of tooth enamel, so it feels like a natural tooth

Why Choose Dental Veneers with The Dental House in New Gisborne?

 
Dental veneers are a preferred choice for patients who want to quickly fix their smile when only one or a few teeth are out of place or discoloured. They look great and can protect your natural tooth from further damage, especially for teeth that have been chipped or cracked. The following are some common situations where dental veneers can be a great dental solution:

Improve the appearance of and protect a chipped or cracked tooth
Straighten a mildly crooked tooth
Improve the look of teeth that are worn down
Improve the colour of a stained tooth
Fill in small gaps between teeth
While porcelain veneers are a preferred dental choice, there are some situations in which a veneer may not be an option, such as:
When many teeth are crooked, alignment may be a better option
Damaged tooth has a large filling or previous root canal
Existing gum infections like gingivitis or periodontitis
Large gaps between teeth

Your Porcelain Veneer Treatment

 
While each situation is unique, there are some things that can be expected when getting porcelain veneers. The entire process takes about 2-4 weeks, and the following steps are what you can expect at The Dental House New Gisborne, Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek once you are qualified as a candidate for porcelain veneers:

Step 1 – Investigation and Custom Treatment Plan

This step may take one or two visits, depending on your situation. During these visits, we will collect all the information needed to plan your dream smile. We may take x-rays, digital photos, scans, videos, and an intraoral examination. We may also use our Digital Smile Design technology so you can see the results before we even begin working.

Step 2 – Preparation and Mockup

This step will also take one to two visits and is done after you approve the treatment plan that we created for you. During this time, we can provide a mockup of your new veneers so you can see the final results. You can also wear the mockup for what we like to call a trial smile, so you can be sure you will be happy with the results. You will also be provided the opportunity to make minor changes during this 1-2 week period to ensure you get the smile you desire.

Step 3 – Final Placement of the Veneers

This step is completed in one visit and is definitely the most exciting. Once your veneers are created, you will come back so we can fit them onto your teeth. You can now enjoy your new smile.
