Porcelain Veneers Townsville

Looking to enhance and improve your smile? Our expert Townsville dentist

offer a high-quality cosmetic smile solution known as porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin custom-made shells of tooth-coloured material or porcelain that are placed on the front surfaces of the teeth. They are natural looking veneers that improve a flawed smile and cover minor dental imperfections.

Porcelain Veneer Procedure

Porcelain veneer procedures often require at least 2 separate visits. During the first appointment, the dentist will trim a tiny amount of enamel off the teeth. This creates space for the veneer placement.

Next, they will make an impression of your teeth. The dentist will also determine your natural tooth colour. This shade information is then sent to the lab.

The lab uses this impression and shade to create your veneers. Some people have temporary veneers placed while they wait for the permanent set. When the permanent veneers are ready, the dentist removes the temporary ones. The new veneers undergo an examination to ensure a perfect fit. The dentist will then bond the veneer to your tooth.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Do Veneers Work Instantly?

The process of getting veneers and how quickly they work is pretty straightforward; once a patient gets dental veneers their smile is instantly restored. This popular treatment immediately improves the appearance of teeth by covering up cosmetic issues such as stains, discolouration, chips, broken teeth or misshaped teeth. Veneers treatment is considered to be minimally invasive and it does not require surgery, meaning there is no lengthy recovery period to worry about or multiple appointments to schedule. As soon as a patient receives veneers treatment, they can enjoy the results!

It is important to note that dental veneers can be made from different materials such as porcelain or composite resin. As they are made from a more durable and longer-lasting material, porcelain veneers are the option our dentists offer at Dentist at Healthlink.
