What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are one form of cosmetic dentistry we perform at our Hobart clinic, where we place a layer of tooth-coloured ceramic or composite resin over the visible surfaces of your teeth.
We do this to correct the following:
- Worn tooth enamel
- Uneven tooth alignment
- Abnormal spacing
- Uneven teeth
- Chips or cracks
Dental veneers are not just a cosmetic procedure that improves your smile’s overall look but also protects the surface of damaged teeth. They may eliminate the need for more invasive dental treatments. There are two options to consider when it comes to creating your dental veneers at our Hobart clinic:
These are considered the gold standard choice for enhancing your smile. Ceramic veneers are renowned for their strength and natural appearance, closely resembling real teeth visually and in terms of texture. It is crucial to ensure your satisfaction with the shade and overall aesthetics of the veneers before their placement, as ceramic veneers cannot be whitened once placed.
Although ceramic is highly resistant to staining and possesses impressive strength, it is essential to handle them with care as they can still chip and stain.
A highly skilled dental technician will create your ceramic veneers in one of our select dental laboratories.
We recommend these veneers when the correction is more severe or the desire is for a longer-term solution.
During your appointment, your dentist creates composite dental veneers by permanently attaching tooth-coloured dental material to your teeth using dental adhesives and a high-intensity curing light.
We recommend these veneers when the correction is less severe and a moderate-term solution is needed.
There are two main types of composite veneers:
1. Direct Composite Veneers – usually one or two teeth
Your dentist will apply tooth-coloured dental material directly to your teeth and then sculpt it to improve your smile’s appearance. While dentists call these direct composite veneers, many call this “bonding.”
Bonding is usually an ideal and less expensive solution for people with chips, gaps between the teeth, staining and discolouration, slight crookedness and misshapen teeth.
2. Injection Moulded Composite Bonding – usually two or more teeth
Injection moulded composite bonding utilises a customised mould to shape your natural teeth using a tooth-coloured composite material. The mould is placed over your teeth and composite material is injected into the mould using a needle. Most cases can be completed in a single appointment, allowing you to leave our practice with a brand-new smile makeover.
Note: the injections are into the mould, not your gums or mouth.
