Transform your smile with Porcelain Veneers


A Comprehensive Guide to Porcelain Veneers

Introduction to Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers have become a popular cosmetic dental treatment for enhancing smiles. At Sandgate Bayside Dental, we understand the transformative power of a confident smile, which is why we offer top-quality porcelain veneers to our patients in Brisbane and beyond.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They are designed to improve the appearance of your smile by addressing various dental imperfections such as discoloration, chipping, misalignment, or gaps between teeth.

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers offer several advantages over other cosmetic dental treatments. They provide a natural-looking result, are highly resistant to stains, and are durable, lasting for many years with proper care. Additionally, porcelain veneers can significantly boost your confidence by giving you a smile you can be proud of.

The Process of Getting Porcelain Veneers at Sandgate Bayside Dental

At Sandgate Bayside Dental, we follow a meticulous process to ensure that you achieve the best possible results with your porcelain veneers:

Consultation and Scanning of teeth

  • During your initial consultation, our experienced cosmetic dentists will evaluate your oral health and discuss your aesthetic goals. Together, we will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. We will scan your teeth if you wish to proceed to the first step, which is getting a wax up to show you the shape and size of your veneers.

Wax up

  • This step is when we copy the wax up received from the lab, to transfer it on your teeth in a temporary material, which is removed at the end of the appointment, but it helps to visualise how your veneers will look in shape and size and whether you are happy with it.

Preparation of Teeth

  • To make room for the veneers and ensure a seamless fit, a small amount of enamel will be removed from the front surface of your teeth.

Creation of Custom Veneers

  • Digital scan of your teeth will be taken and sent to our trusted dental lab, where skilled technicians will craft your custom porcelain veneers to perfectly match the shape, size, and colour of your natural teeth.

Bonding of Veneers

  • Once your veneers are ready, they will be carefully bonded to the front of your teeth using a strong dental adhesive. Our dentists will make any necessary adjustments to ensure that your veneers fit comfortably and look natural.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer numerous benefits, including:

Natural Appearance

  • Porcelain closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel, resulting in a seamless, lifelike smile.

Who is a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers may be an ideal solution for individuals who have:

  • Discoloured or stained teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments
  • Chipped, cracked, or worn-down teeth
  • Minor misalignment or irregularities in tooth shape or size
  • Gaps or spaces between teeth

Maintaining Your Porcelain Veneers

To ensure the longevity of your porcelain veneers, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene habits, attend regular dental check-ups, and avoid certain habits that could potentially damage your veneers.

Oral Hygiene

      • Brushing and flossing regularly is essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy and preventing plaque buildup around your veneers.

Regular Dental Visits

      • Schedule biannual dental exams and cleanings to monitor the condition of your veneers and address any issues early on.

Avoiding Certain Habits

      • Avoid biting or chewing on hard objects such as ice, pens, or fingernails, as this can damage your veneers. Additionally, refrain from using your teeth as tools to open packages or bottles.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Porcelain veneers can last for 10-15 years or more with proper care and maintenance.

Are porcelain veneers reversible?

The process of getting porcelain veneers typically involves removing a small amount of enamel from the teeth, so the procedure is considered irreversible. However, if desired, veneers can be replaced or removed and replaced with alternative treatments.

Can porcelain veneers fix crooked teeth?

While porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of slightly misaligned teeth, they are not a solution for significant orthodontic issues. In cases of more severe misalignment, orthodontic treatment may be recommended.

Do porcelain veneers require special care?

Porcelain veneers do not require any special care beyond regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental visits. However, it is important to avoid habits that could potentially damage your veneers, such as biting on hard objects or using your teeth as tools.

Are porcelain veneers painful?

The process of getting porcelain veneers is typically painless, as it is performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Some patients may experience minor sensitivity or discomfort following the procedure, but this is usually temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
