Creating Beautiful Smiles at Dental Link

Dental Veneers DoubleviewDental veneers are thin, tooth-coloured shells of porcelain that are bonded over the front of aesthetically challenged teeth. They’re a more conservative treatment compared to having a full crown made. Our Wembley Downs, Sorrento and Doubleview dentists may recommend them for a smile makeover if your underlying tooth is healthy.

When Veneers Are Recommended

Custom veneers are excellent for treating teeth that are

  • Chipped
  • Discoloured
  • Poorly shaped
  • Gapped

In most cases, veneers are suggested for treating defects that impact front teeth which are visible when you smile.

5 Advantages of Veneers

There are many benefits of getting veneers; here are 5:

  • They look natural
  • Porcelain veneers resist stains
  • Veneers protect and strengthen weakened teeth
  • Porcelain veneers could last for decades if cared for properly
  • They can be maintained easily through good oral hygiene habits

Bonded Composite Veneers

For smaller irregularities, bonded veneers are often an appropriate alternative to conventional porcelain veneers. For these procedures, the tooth is “painted” with a bonding liquid and a putty-like composite material is moulded onto the tooth. A bright curing light hardens the material into place.

FAQ

How do I care for my veneers?

    Caring for your veneers is easy. Simply brush (using non-abrasive toothpaste) and floss as you normally would and schedule checkups every six months. You also need to avoid biting on hard objects such as ice cubes, carrots or pencils as doing so could damage the veneers. Never use your veneers to open packages either!

Does insurance cover veneers?

    It depends on the insurance plan you have. If your plan doesn’t cover veneers, we provide convenient financing options.
