Dental Veneers Provide a Straightforward Approach to a New Smile
Do You Want to Change Your Smile?
Have you ever wanted to completely change the way your smile looks? Dental veneers offer a long-term, dramatic aesthetic option that can change the appearance of your entire smile. Whether it’s one tooth that you’re unhappy with, or you want a complete smile-makeover, dental veneers provide the most dramatic cosmetic possibility when it comes to improving the way your teeth look.
What are Dental Veneers?
Every veneer is made of an ultra-thin material that is customised to conform to the front of your teeth. This creates the appearance of having a brand new tooth or set of teeth without ever having to go through lengthy orthodontic treatment or other cosmetic procedures. Instead, veneers give you the instant results that you want, the moment they’re applied to your teeth.
Types of Dental Veneers Available
To better serve our patients, we provide both composite and porcelain dental veneers at our Sydney dental office. Dr. Tam works closely with each patient to explain the pros and cons of each option, allowing them to select the aesthetic method that is best for their personal needs.
Veneers correct the appearance of teeth that are:
- Misaligned (gaps, spaces, or crowding)
- Narrow or short
The Treatment Process
Smile by Design patients can expect all of their dental treatment to be straightforward and easy to understand, and never to include surprise expenses. Your first visit with Dr. Tam will include an assessment and consultation covering exactly what you would like to change about your smile, and a detailed treatment plan that lists any expenses related to your choice of dental veneer therapy. If you decide to go forward with the treatment, we will also take impressions of your teeth at this visit.
Depending on what type of veneer you select, your next visit may be up to 2 weeks later. At this appointment you will have your permanent veneers applied by Dr. Tam, or be given the option to try them to see how they look. All application visits are very short and require little or no tooth preparation, making the visits quick and comfortable.
This type of dental veneer is the most affordable. It is designed and applied during one treatment visit, saving you time by quickly providing a cosmetic relief option for troublesome areas. Composite veneers are made of one colour that is matched closely to the adjacent teeth, and are primarily used for the correction of only one or a few teeth.
Porcelain veneers provide the most natural appearance, because they are made of partially translucent material that is designed in an off-site dental laboratory. While porcelain veneers do require more of an initial investment, they are stronger, last longer, and are more appropriate for treating your entire smile all at once due to their natural design.
