At Toorak Fine Dentistry, we meet hundreds of patients every year who are unhappy with the appearance of their smile. This can be due to inherited traits such as misaligned teeth, gaps, spots or blemishes. In other cases, our patients notice their teeth have changed gradually over time, resulting in staining, chips or cracks, wear, crowded teeth or broken down restorations.
Our Toorak based dentists understand the importance of having confidence in your smile. That’s why we offer teeth veneers in Melbourne to help our patients improve the appearance of their teeth and smile.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or composite resin that are fixed to the outwardly visible portion of your tooth and are designed to correct a range of dental imperfections, helping you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
With the veneers our Melbourne clinic offers, we can change the colour, shape, size and length of teeth, as well as close gaps between teeth, straighten teeth and fix chipped teeth. Relatively little of your original tooth structure needs to be removed, and the procedure requires just three painless visits.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a thin, tooth coloured porcelain shell that is carefully crafted to bond to and cover the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are conservative, requiring very little removal of your natural tooth in order to achieve aesthetic results.
The porcelain veneers in Melbourne offered at our clinic are an excellent option for treating chipped, discoloured, slightly misaligned or misshapen teeth and can also be used to close gaps between teeth. Teeth that are too small or have irregularities in their shape can also benefit from porcelain veneers.
How Many Appointments Do I Need?
Porcelain veneers generally require three appointments. In the first appointment, your dentist will work with you to design your smile. In the second appointment, your dentist will prepare your teeth, which typically takes one to two hours depending on the number of teeth being treated. An impression of your teeth is made and our laboratory will design the porcelain veneers to the shade chosen by our dentist. Our porcelain veneers in Melbourne are designed to match your face, personality and style. Temporary veneers may be created to protect your teeth while your veneers are being made. Once your veneers are ready, they’ll be fitted to your teeth in a third and final appointment.
What Are Composite Veneers?
Composite resin veneers and composite resin bonding is a conservative alternative to porcelain
veneers and can be used in a variety of cases, from correcting minor imperfections like chips and
permanent stains through to closing gaps between teeth. We refer to the treatment as composite bonding when the composite is only applied to part of the surface of the tooth (for example, in the case of a chipped front tooth). Composite veneers, on the other hand, involve applying the composite to the entire front surface of the tooth. Our composite veneers in Melbourne can be used to treat a single tooth or several teeth to transform your entire smile.
How Many Appointments Are Required?
Composite resin bonding and composite veneers in Melbourne can often be completed in a single appointment. Composite is a tooth coloured material that comes in different shades. It’s very durable and can be easily repaired if chipped. Composite veneers can also be placed on a tooth without it first having to be designed in a lab, unlike porcelain veneers. Our dentists will select a shade of composite to match the shade of your teeth.
