Veneers are a beautiful and quite non-invasive way to help improve the appearance of your teeth. The easiest way to imagine a veneer is being similar to a false fingernail that will fit tightly over the front surface of your tooth, hiding any flaws.
You may wish to consider veneers if you have one or two teeth that are discoloured and which cannot be whitened. Our veneers are also excellent at mending small chips and cracks in teeth and for restoring the incisal edges of teeth that have become worn down. Veneers can be useful if you have a tooth that is too small or oddly shaped and they can be used to close up or minimise spaces in between your teeth.
Here at New Age Dental, we can make your veneers from tooth coloured composite resin or from porcelain. With composite resin veneers, the composite is applied directly to the front surfaces of your teeth before being hardened, shaped and polished. Treatment can be completed during just one simple visit. Porcelain veneers are a little more complicated, as we will need to prepare your teeth and to take a detailed dental impression which is sent to our dental laboratory. Your veneers will be handmade and can be fitted and bonded in position during your next visit. For more information about Dental Veneers Near Thomastown contact us on (03) 9467 6759.
New Age Dental is located at Suite 5, Level 1, 20 Scholar Drive, Bundoora VIC 3083.
There are several differences between porcelain & resin veneers. Here a few of the main ones:
Material - Porcelain veneers are made from thin ceramic shells, while resin veneers are made from tooth-coloured composite resin.
Appearance - Porcelain veneers give a more realistic appearance due to their translucency.
Durability - Porcelain veneers are more long-lasting due to the stronger material used that is resistant to staining and wear and tear.
Preparation - Porcelain veneers need more extensive tooth preparation for lasting results.
Process - Resin veneers can often be directly applied to your teeth in a single visit, where the application of porcelain veneers can take a lot longer.
Cost - Because of the high quality materials and length of process involved, porcelain veneers are generally more expensive than resin veneers.
There are many advantages of dental veneers including:
● Improved appearance
● Natural-looking results
● Minimally invasive procedure
● Increased confidence
