Porcelain Veneers at Melton

Porcelain veneers are thin tooth coverings placed onto the front of teeth to change the shape, colour or position of one or more teeth. Commonly used for the front, and top teeth that show when you smile, porcelain veneers are a restorative dental solution to quickly upgrade or repair a smile.

What are Dental Veneers?

What are Dental Veneers at Melton – Melton Dental House
Dental veneers fit on a tooth similar to the way a contact lens fits on the eye. The veneer is a very thin covering that is glued to the front of a tooth and may be made of either resin or porcelain. Porcelain veneers are the most popular option because they are durable, look natural and can be made to improve the colour of a tooth or reshape a tooth so it fits in better with your other teeth. Sometimes veneers can fix a crooked tooth by reshaping it or altering its placement, and quickly transform a smile. Porcelain veneers are a popular and permanent solution that many patients enjoy.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

 

Because they are an efficient dental solution, veneers are becoming even more popular among patients who want to improve their smile. Some of the benefits of porcelain veneers include:

They are stain-resistant

Veneers are considered a permanent fix because they are non-removable

Durable, often lasting 15 years or more with proper care

They can be customised to the color and shape of your other teeth

Porcelain veneers can quickly repair a chipped or discoloured tooth

They can straighten teeth without the need for braces

Our Happy Patient

Angela D

I am a very anxious person when visiting the dentist. I absolute hate it. I had an emergency with my root canal and the girls at Sunbury Dental House were amazing fitting me in straight away. Allana was fantastic making me feel at ease and so comfortable explaining everything step by step. I will only see her now as she is amazing at what she does. Thank you so very much. Highly recommended 🙂

Candidates for Dental Veneers

 
While dental veneers are a popular option for many of our patients, they may not be the best solution for everyone. The following are some situations that are ideally treated with veneers.

Fix one or two teeth that are mildly crooked or out of place
Cover teeth that are stained
Cover and protect chipped or cracked teeth
Repair worn teeth
Fill in small gaps between teeth
We know that proper screening leads to improved treatment with far fewer risks of future problems. For example, if you have gum disease or signs of gum disease, we can treat that first, and then move forward with dental veneers. If you have many teeth that are crooked, then braces or Invisalign may be a better option. Each situation is unique, which is why our skilled and experienced dentists will use the data from your exam to determine your ideal dental solution and present it to you.

Once we find that you are a candidate for dental veneers, we can move forward and begin treatment. But if there is a better solution, we will discuss it with you so you can make an informed decision. Our goal is your satisfaction with the highest quality of dental care that you expect.

What to Expect with Porcelain Veneer Treatment

The process of getting porcelain veneers includes technology that allows you to try different looks to ensure you are happy with the end result. If you choose, we can use our Digital Smile Design, which will show you how veneers will look with different sizes, shapes or placements. You can even try temporary composites to help you make your final decision. The following is what you can expect when you get porcelain veneers at Melton Dental:

Initial Exam and Treatment Planning

This process may take one or two visits and includes the exam and checkup in which we gather all necessary data. We may take x-rays, photos, and scans to get all details of your oral health as well as the shape and placement of your teeth. We may also use Digital Smile Design at this time.

Preparation for Porcelain Veneers

During this stage we will prepare your teeth so the veneers can be bonded to them. This is also an exciting time where you will receive a mockup of what your future veneers will look like. If you need, we can make minor adjustments before the final veneers are placed.

Get Your New Smile

This last visit is when the dentist will do the final cementation of veneers onto your teeth. The entire process will have taken about 2-4 weeks from the time we started, and you can now enjoy your new smile!

How Long Will They Last?

How Long Will They Last at Melton–Melton Dental House
 
Porcelain veneers are more durable than composite veneers and can last for 15 years and longer. Of course, this will greatly depend on daily care and maintenance so be sure to brush at least twice each day. Also, maintain regular dental checkups so we can watch if any problems arise such as gum disease, tooth decay or calculus buildup. But when you keep up with dental visits and professional cleanings, your porcelain veneers will last a nice, long time. The following is a summary of how to care for your veneers:
Z
Do not open bottles with your teeth
Z
Do not chew or bite on hard objects
Z
Wear a mouthguard to sleep and protect your teeth, if needed
Z
Wear a mouthguard while playing sports
Z
Brush at least twice each day
Z
Floss regularly or use a Waterpik to clean between teeth
When you care for your porcelain veneers, you are ensuring your investment will last a long time.

Removing Dental Veneers

 
Dental veneers can be removed, if necessary. Since the main reason they are ever removed is because patients do not like the aesthetics, we take all precautions to ensure that you get the look that you want. When you are happy with the look before we place them, you will have no need to remove them. Other issues that may be cause for removal include getting a cavity under the veneer or other oral health issues, but daily care and maintenance greatly lower the risk of this happening.
