Dental Veneers performed by Trusted Adelaide Dentists
Veneers, also know as 'dental veneers' or 'porcelain dental veneers' are thin shells that are "glued" on the visible surfaces of the teeth. Veneers are used to improve;
- the colour,
- the size,
- the shape of the teeth
- the aesthetic appearance of the smile and the whole face.
They are an excellent solution for:
- severely discoloured teeth,
- chipped or broken teeth,
- worn-down teeth,
- stained fillings
- mild crookedness.
As we age and our facial features begin to decent, the top teeth are slowly covered by our top lip. Veneering the teeth can add bulk and length to the teeth making them visible again. This effect can often make the smile appear young.
Traditionally dental veneers are placed after cutting the tooth into a particular shape.
Modern techniques, however, allow us to place ceramic veneers on teeth with minimum or no cutting of the precious enamel of the tooth. Leaving the enamel intact means the tooth stays healthy and is not weakened by the process of veneering. Usually, no local anaesthetic or temporary veneers are needed. Each case, however, needs to be assessed based on its own merit to determine suitability for this method.
