Considering Dental Veneers? What You Need To Know Sydney-Pitt Street Dental Centre

Dental veneers are used by dentists to create beautiful, natural-looking smiles. A simple and effective option for correcting the appearance of unevenness, discolouration, chips or gaps, veneers are created by placing a layer of porcelain over the surface of your teeth. Read on to learn more about the process and maintenance involved, as well as the different options available to you.

Types of Dental Veneers

Veneers allow you to have the smile that you have always wanted! At Pitt St Dental Centre we are experts in this field of cosmetic dentistry and work very closely with two of the best ceramists in Sydney. The consultation and collaboration between yourself, the dentist and ceramist ensures that a beautiful, natural result is delivered. The most requested types of veneers are composite and porcelain veneers and the material you choose will depend on your individual wishes and needs.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are made of a high quality, white, composite resin material and are built onto your tooth. They are able to be bonded onto your tooth in just one appointment! Using outstanding materials they look amazing when they are performed by one of our highly experienced dentists.

Composite veneers are a slightly more affordable option compared to porcelain veneers and have a life expectancy of around 5 years. It is important to maintain regular oral and dental hygiene and treat composite veneers how you would your own teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are made of porcelain – as the name suggests, and are as strong as your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers allow you to have the teeth you’ve always wanted by designing your own perfect Hollywood smile!

In order to design your new smile, Pitt St Dental Centre will hold a design consultation with yourself, one of their highly trained dentists and one of the Sydney based ceramists that they work with. In the consultation we will listen to what you are wanting to achieve and we will advise on what is possible to ensure function and aesthetic perfection.. Together we will create the smile you’ve always dreamed of – a natural, brilliant white smile.

Porcelain veneers will last for 10 years or longer and are naturally resistant to staining, however it is still important to look after them as you would your natural teeth.

How are dental veneers applied?

In order to bond the veneers to the teeth, your teeth are shaped and prepared by your dentist. Thanks to advances in technology in recent years, very little tooth structure – if any – generally needs to be removed.

How do I maintain my veneers?

Maintenance of dental veneers is very similar to taking care of your natural teeth. Simply brush and floss twice a day using a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste. Finally, keep visiting your dentist regularly each year for check-ups.
