Everything You Need To Know About Veneers

Everyone says that the best way to make a good first impression is to smile. But if your pearly white teeth are a lot less “pearly white” and a lot more “chippy brown”, you may not make the same impression with a pursed grin.

So how can you get a mouthful of pearly whites for that perfect smile? The good news is that cosmetic veneers are a relatively simple and painless way of fixing your smile.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are custom-made cosmetic coverings which are fitted over cracked, chipped, stained, or damaged natural teeth. While they’re similar to cosmetic fingernail appliques, dental veneers are actually designed to last for years if not decades when properly looked after.

These very thin ceramic or porcelain shells are made specifically for each patient for a brighter, better, and more beautiful look. They are then bonded to the front surface of the individual tooth with special dental cement so they can remain permanently attached.

Each veneer is slightly curved to cover the entire tooth face and tinted to a precise shade of white. And thanks to recent advancements in technology, veneers now seem even more natural as they can have the exact same translucent look as real teeth.

Not only are cosmetic veneers designed to suit each individual tooth, and closely mimic the colour of the other teeth, but they can even be used for any number of other desired changes as well. They can alter the length, width, or shape of each individual tooth, and ultimately change the entire smile line as well.

Why Would Someone Want Veneers?

People often decide they want to get veneers for many different reasons, including more than one of them. Most basically though, veneers are an excellent option for anyone who wants to cover any teeth which constitute some kind of cosmetic flaw with their smile. This is because veneers offer them the appearance of smooth, white, straight, and natural teeth.

Veneers can be used for misshapen teeth, crooked teeth, discoloured teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, or tooth gaps, as well as general wear and tear that can come with aging. Or someone may decide to get veneers simply because they want their teeth to look different than they currently do.

Veneers are an especially good choice for someone with significant staining from say a lifetime of drinking coffee or smoking cigarettes. It allows people to keep their natural teeth, while still having more substantial cosmetic correction to their teeth than regular whitening treatments can offer.

What Does The Process Involve?

There are several appointments required in this process, so you should definitely plan in advance if you want veneers. At the initial consultation, your dentist will evaluate your teeth to ascertain whether you’ll be a good candidate for veneers before discussing your options. This involves taking an impression of your teeth, mouth, gums, and jaw, and may also require photographs, scans, and x-rays as well.

The technicians and ceramist at our onsite laboratory will then use the impression to begin porcelain construction in the shape and colour of your design. Once the veneer is ready around 1 to 2 weeks later, we apply a special dental bond to the veneer and adhere it to your existing tooth.

Once your veneer is correctly in place, we harden and set the dental bond by activating it with a curing light. Now that your permanent veneers are complete, it’s time to take your brand new smile out for a test drive!

From my first phone call to Tomika explaining my situation with my teeth and how bad they were and that I didn't know where to start, to having my first free appointment with Elias was the best thing I have ever done. Tomika is very easy to talk to, friendly and professional. Elias, well he is great, told me exactly what he could achieve, the cost and the timeframe and he was spot on. Read more

Elias prepared a full set of dentures for my 90 year old mother. The service he provided was exceptional, using current technology effectively to create a set of dentures which were far superior to what she had previously had. Elias also made it very clear that my mother could go back at any time if minor adjustments were required. He gives meticulous attention to detail. Tamika ensures that appointments run to time.

State of the art technology and skills and ability to match. I went to the clinic highly anxious ( my previous dental encounter at another clinic resulted in a panic attack and blacking out twice whilst in the chair) due to the poor integrity of my teeth, as a direct result of a health condition I had lost the majority of my teeth and the remaining were nothing short of a train wreck. Elias treated me the utmost respect and kindness. Read more

Faqs

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we offer two types of denture, complete and partial. Complete dentures are necessary when all your natural teeth are missing. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain. If you are having extractions, we can also provide you with an immediate denture. This is often an interim denture so you can avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth.

A denture usually lasts between five and seven years. Time and natural changes in the mouth will affect the fit and wear patterns of your denture. If your denture is worn and doesn’t fit as well as it used to, it may require a repair or reline. Having your denture checked every two years will help to ensure a proper fit and by following your denture care instructions, you’ll extend the life of your replacement teeth. 

Dentures don’t last forever. Dentures usually last between 5 to 7 years and need to be relined every 1 to 2 years. Over time dentures become worn and don’t fit as well, so it’s important to reline them regularly. The better you follow your denture care instructions, the longer your replacement teeth will last. 

It is advised that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and clean. This will help to prevent any major oral health issues from occurring. However, if you have bad breath, bleeding gums, discoloured teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, tooth or jaw pain it is advised to make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.

At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we know attending the dentist can be difficult for nervous and anxious patients. We offer a number of options to help make your next visit as calm and stress-free as possible. Contact us today and a friendly dental technician will be able to give you all the options available.
