The Ins and Outs
Porcelain veneers allows you to have the perfect shaped and whitest teeth and naturally beautiful, youthful smile you have always wanted. Porcelain veneers, a type of dental veneer, are the ideal standard in state of the art cosmetic dentistry today. They are the dental veneers treatment of choice in creating perfect, natural smiles because of their effectiveness, aesthetic appeal and longevity. Porcelain veneers offer a holistic approach for the treatment of gaps and chipped or broken teeth by bonding wafer thin, semi-translucent ‘shells’ over your existing teeth.
Porcelain veneers are wafer thin (0.3mm-1.0mm) shells of hand-made porcelain that are chemically bonded to the surface of the tooth. 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 smile.
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 short cuts!
Porcelain veneers are used to treat a number of dental conditions and restore damaged or malformed teeth to ideal beauty and strength. Unlike many other procedures like crowns, porcelain veneers require very 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.
