What is Veneer Teeth?
Do you have a chipped tooth? Or an oddly-shaped tooth that stands out when you smile? Are some of your teeth discoloured? Do you have small gaps in between your teeth?
If you answered yes to any of the questions, then veneer teeth may help you solve your problems!
So what is veneer teeth? Veneers Sydney are customised, wafer-thin shells of either composite or porcelain.
They are bonded on the front surface of the tooth to correct flaws in your teeth such as the size, shape, length, and colour.
While teeth veneers can be done on one tooth, it is oftentimes made to fix and proportionate the smile which is why many patients get a series of veneers teeth. And they are mostly done for all 6 upper anterior teeth because those are the ones visible when you smile.
At Sydney Dental Veneer, we take pride in creating veneers that mimic the appearance of your natural teeth to give you dreamy, pearly whites that do not even look like they were made by your dentist.
Depending on your lifestyle and budget, you may choose between our two veneer options which are composite or porcelain. Let us take a closer look at these two and the pros and cons of each.
Composite veneers are made of composite resin which is moulded directly onto the teeth and cured in place. Many patients love this treatment because it is the most affordable option for veneers.
Modern composites are now made more durable and dentists in Sydney who are experienced in veneers can also play around with the shade of the composite to achieve a more lifelike finish. The downside is they do not last that long because they get stained and scratched easily.
Another option for you is porcelain veneers. Porcelain is the gold standard when it comes to aesthetics. It has the ability to reflect light the same way your natural teeth do and this is called translucency, a feature not seen in composite resins.
They are also stain-resistant and non-abrasive so you can enjoy them in tiptop condition for a long time. Porcelain veneers Sydney have proven to be durable enough to last up to 15 years with proper care and frequent dental visits for upkeep. The only disadvantage is the price but we say it is very much worth the investment for a confident and beautiful smile.
At Sydney Dental Veneer, our Sydney dentist will be delighted to walk you through your options so you can understand which works best for you. We personalise a treatment plan depending on what you need and provide you with results that will go above and beyond your expectations.
