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.
The overall process of getting porcelain veneers in Townsville is also pretty quick with many of our patients only requiring two to three visits to get veneers. And that’s counting the entire process from initial consultation to final placement. Porcelain veneer procedures generally require at least two separate visits. During the first appointment, the dentist will trim a tiny amount of enamel off the teeth. This is to create space for the veneer placement.
Next, the dentist will make an impression of your teeth. They will also take some time to determine your natural tooth colour, as your porcelain veneers will be colour matched to suit your smile. This shade information is then sent to the lab.
The lab uses this impression and shade information to create your dental 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. Finally, the dentist will bond the veneer to your tooth and make any adjustments as needed.
