Veneers in Applecross & Mt Pleasant

What Are Veneers?

These thin, false facings can be applied to the front of a natural tooth to improve colour and alignment. Our skilled approach to their placement ensures they look natural and become a component of your overall oral health.

While not everyone is a suitable candidate, patients who require a cosmetic improvement that cannot be achieved with tooth straightening or whitening often make this their choice.

There are several benefits to this option, including:

  • Improved tooth alignment and colour without extensive tooth straightening or whitening
  • Successful restoration for heavily stained and worn teeth, where traditional whitening methods may prove ineffective
  • Fast and predictable results, providing you with a smile you’ll love in a relatively short amount of time

Creating Your Look

At our practice, we prioritise precision and patient satisfaction. Our process begins with a detailed record of what your teeth look like now, including colour and shape. Next, our experienced dental team and lab technician use this information to design the final appearance of your teeth. Known as a “diagnostic wax-up,” we use this to trim back your natural teeth slightly and place temporary tooth covers.

This two-week period provides a “trial run” of what your final teeth will look like, allowing for feedback and small changes to the design, as needed. Once your new shells are completed, the temporary ones are removed, and the final set is securely glued into place, giving you a beautiful and confident smile.

Caring for Your New Smile

Taking care of your veneers is similar to caring for natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and visits to your dental professional are essential. To ensure the longevity of your tooth covers, it’s important to protect them from trauma. We recommend using a sports mouthguard for contact sports and, if necessary, a night guard for patients who clench and grind their teeth during sleep.

The lifespan of veneers may vary depending on individual circumstances and the materials used. Porcelain veneers are expected to last 10-12 years, while those made of composite/acrylic typically last 4-8 years. In many cases, they can last even longer with proper care and maintenance.
