Porcelain Veneers at
Randwick Dental Clinic

Veneers RandwickVeneers are strictly a cosmetic dentistry solution for masking teeth that appear discoloured, misaligned or misshaped. Instead of covering the entire tooth structure with a crown, veneers are bonded to the visible side of the teeth in your smile zone, thus changing what people see from the outside.

The number of veneers you need will depend on how many teeth show when you’re laughing or smiling. For most people, it’s somewhere around 6-8 upper teeth. Others may need to go back a bit more, using as many as ten veneers. In select cases, we may also need to place them on the lower front teeth, doubling the total number required.

You may want to consider whitening your teeth beforehand so that any visible areas adjacent to where you’re getting veneers will be as bright as possible against your refreshed smile.

Before your veneers are made in the lab, you’ll be able to request the precise shade, shape and size of each tooth. Each restoration is handcrafted for the most pleasing and realistic design possible.

What’s Involved in Getting Veneers?

Getting dental veneers usually involves 2-3 appointments in total. During the first consultation you are able to share your goals and likes or dislikes about your smile. From there, we will walk through the options and selections available to make the necessary aesthetic improvements. On that first visit, you will be given a detailed treatment plan with fees.

If you are ready to start treatment, we will schedule a time to prep the teeth by buffing away a thin layer of enamel and then taking a digital scan. With this state-of-the-art technology, no gooey impressions are needed. In some cases, temporary veneers may be bonded over the smile if required.

About two weeks later, the permanent porcelain veneers will be bonded into place. You will have a completely new smile that has been designed to your personal preferences, making your teeth look straighter and whiter in a short amount of time.

Veneer Maintenance and Care

It’s essential that you care for your veneers to help them last as long as possible. Start by brushing and flossing around each one daily. Keep the floss taut against the side of your tooth, gently rubbing it up and down around the contours as well as just under the gumlines. Flossing will not pull off a sound veneer. If you feel any catching or the floss is starting to shred, slide it through instead of pulling it down and see us for an exam.

Sleep in a night guard to protect the porcelain from chipping or fractures. If you tend to clench your teeth, have TMJ disorder or sleep apnoea, you may be more at risk for wear. Veneers can last for several years at a time, but if one is damaged, it will need to be replaced entirely.

Plan to schedule a check and clean every six months. We’ll make sure all of your veneers are holding up properly and polish away any surface stains that have accumulated between visits.
