Introduction To Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells made of a material that matches the natural tooth colour. They are considered an ideal treatment for covering the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. Dental veneers Sydney can be made of composite resin or porcelain fused to metal. They are typically bonded onto the tooth with a strong adhesive (dental cement). The procedure is common and relatively painless. 

Dental veneers can ideally correct a wide variety of dental problems, including: 

-Chipped teeth 

-Teeth that are too small or too large 

-Misaligned teeth 

-Teeth with gaps between them 

-Teeth that are stained or discoloured 

-Uneven tooth surfaces 

-Teeth that are worn down 

The decision to use dental veneers is based on various factors, including the patient’s overall health, the severity of the problem, and the patient’s desired outcome. Therefore, dental veneers are not recommended for everyone. For example, patients with gum disease or other oral health problems may not be good candidates for dental veneers. 

The process of getting dental veneers includes 2 visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will take impressions of the patient’s teeth and send them to a lab. The lab will create a custom-made set of veneers that perfectly fit the patient’s teeth by using the impressions. The dentist then attaches a temporary veneer over the front of each tooth to protect it while the lab works. 

During the second visit, about two weeks after the first, the dentist removes the temporary veneer and bonds the final veneers in place. The final veneers are usually made from dental porcelain. In rare cases, the dentist may opt to use tooth-coloured composite resin instead of or in addition to porcelain for a more realistic look. 

 The entire process typically takes two appointments and one overnight stays at the lab. As a result, dental veneers require very little aftercare. Aside from avoiding very hot and/or cold foods and beverages, the patient’s daily routine should not be disrupted by the veneers. 

Some people choose to get dental veneers to create a brighter smile. In addition to improving the appearance of teeth, veneers can also help protect them from further stains and dental decay.  

Furthermore, a set of veneers can be a great way to fix a smile that has been affected by damage from oral health issues, cosmetic procedures (such as whitening), or the natural aging process. 

Dental veneers are not permanent. However, the dentist may recommend removing them periodically for cleaning or replacing them if they become worn down. 

The cost of dental veneers varies from patient to patient and can range from $1,500 to $5,000 for a complete set. The price depends on the location of the veneers (for example, back teeth can be more expensive), the number of teeth treated, and the type of treatment used (such as porcelain). The cost also depends on whether or not the dentist uses composite resin instead of porcelain. Since dental veneers are not covered under most insurance plans, patients will have to pay for them in full. 

Dental veneers are generally considered a safe procedure with few risks, but it is possible that they can cause damage if left in place for too long or if their placement is done incorrectly. In some cases, the patient’s body may reject the veneers, or a reaction between the adhesive and oral tissues can cause damage. Other risks include infections and inflammation of the gums and teeth.
