Teeth Whitening Carnegie

The Ins and Outs

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin (0.3mm-1.0mm) shells of hand-made porcelain that are chemically bonded to the tooth's surface. They are aesthetically beautiful, durable and strong – and the optical and physical properties of porcelain veneers are designed to mimic your natural teeth. Our practice is one of the most highly-regarded dental practices for porcelain veneers in Melbourne and has helped thousands of people realise the aesthetic potential of their smiles.  

Dental Veneers can be created from a range of materials and techniques that can result in wide variability in appearance, longevity, and bio-compatibility. While many options with fancy names claim to be better, the reality is that only hand-layered, glass porcelain veneers can produce stunning 3D optical aesthetic integration with natural teeth with a minimally-invasive approach. These veneers also have the most proven track records reported in dental research. Unlike industrially-produced alternatives, these require extensive and laborious attention to detail and a high level of artistic skill. Beautiful, natural aesthetics take time, care and a lot of love to create. Nature doesn’t take shortcuts! 

Porcelain dental veneers are used to treat a number of dental conditions and restore damaged or malformed teeth to ideal beauty and strength in Carnegie. Unlike many other procedures like crowns, porcelain veneers require minimal tooth reduction (as little as 13% compared with up to 75% for crowns). Contrary to popular belief, when porcelain veneers are bonded to teeth, their strength is comparable to a natural, untouched tooth. When a meticulous approach is used, these dental porcelain veneers can last for many years and be imperceptible from an untouched tooth. Porcelain veneers take advantage of advances in material science and bonding technology and conform to the Biomimetic principle of dentistry, a cornerstone of our practice philosophy where procedures and materials are chosen based on their ability to preserve and protect natural teeth and mimic them in aesthetics and function.

Dental veneers procedure followed at DentalCare Carnegie

At DentalCare Carnegie, veneers can be affixed using a simple painless procedure that requires only a few visits and no major surgery. The following steps may be involved in the veneer procedure:

Diagnosis: When you meet dentists at DentalCare Carnegie, they will discuss your treatment options and the desired outcome. Our dentist would also take dental impressions and x-rays of your teeth and mouth during the appointment.

Preparation: At your next visit to DentalCare Carnegie, the dentist will remove about 12 millimetres of enamel from your tooth before taking an impression. We use local anaesthetics to relieve pain and numb the area.

Creation: It takes approximately 2-4 weeks for the dental lab to construct veneers as per your specification. During the waiting period, you may contact the dentist for the tooth-coloured temporary resin veneers.

Bonding Placement: The dentists will clean, polish, and etch your tooth to prepare it for the veneer. Etching the tooth’s surface aids in strengthening the bonding.

Placement: Before placing the veneer on your tooth, the dentist will apply special cement to it. Your veneer will be photopolymerised once it is in the correct position. A specific light beam is used to activate the chemicals in the cement, causing it to harden quickly and completing the bonding of the veneer to your tooth.

Adjustments: Finally, the dentist will then make any final adjustments that are required.

Porcelain veneers, thin shells of hand-made porcelain, are bonded to your tooth's surface, offering a holistic approach to treating gaps, chipped, or broken teeth. At 0.3mm-1.0mm thickness, these veneers mimic the optical and physical properties of your natural teeth. Our practice in Melbourne is renowned for creating stunning 3D optical aesthetic integration with a minimally-invasive approach.
