Porcelain Veneers

Not everyone is fortunate enough to be born with perfect teeth, and for many of us, daily life eventually leads to the inevitable wear and tear, which may even result in crooked, stained or chipped teeth. However, that doesn’t mean you have to live with these imperfections, or that you can’t have the smiled you’ve always desired. Thanks to modern dentistry and cosmetic technologies, it is possible to achieve your dream smile, no matter the current state of your natural teeth.

One of the ways in which Accent Dental dentists achieve these results for our clients is by porcelain veneers, which can be performed in-house at our Perth CBD clinic.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are made from a thin shell of medical-grade porcelain, which is permanently bonded to the front surface of a tooth to improve its position, shade and shape.

Once placed, porcelain veneers can transform spaced, aged, worn, broken, crooked, stained or discoloured, teeth, resulting in an improvement of your smile.

 

What are veneers used to treat?

Accent Dental porcelain veneers are used to treat a number of cosmetic imperfections among our Perth patients and can provide long-term solutions to:

  • Discrepencies in tooth shape
  • Discolouration
  • Misalignment
  • Gappy smiles
  • Crowding
  • Chips
  • Creating ‘Hollywood smiles’

Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers?

Anyone who is unhappy with their smile is a candidate is for porcelain veneers. However, the quality of the existing tooth will be taken into consideration and if it is found to be too poor, and the expense of the veneer outweighs the longevity of the treatment, an alternative cosmetic treatment may be proposed, such as dental implants or a bridge. It may also be determined that a different cosmetic procedure could yield the same, or better results, for example Invisalign may be used to treat crowding or teeth whitening for discolouration.

To determine whether you’re a candidate for porcelain veneers, contact our Perth based dental clinic and request a consultation appointment with one of our dentists. All of our initial consultation appointments are completely obligation free and are simply an opportunity for you to discuss your options with an expert.

What kind of porcelain veneers does accent dental use?

There are a few different ways that porcelain veneers are applied at our Perth clinic. One method is by performing minor tooth reduction first, which has proven to provide the best results but does require some loss of enamel and changing the shape of the natural tooth. However, for smaller tooth defects, mini-veneers or non-prep veneers may be an option, which is the process of adhesively bonding the veneer to the front surface of the tooth and does not require teeth to be filed down.

What is the process of getting porcelain veneers at accent dental?

Accent Dental, after many decades, has perfected the use of dental porcelain veneers to enhance a person’s smile. We work closely with our master ceramist to create natural, life like veneers that mimic natural, healthy teeth thus producing a beautiful and confident smile.

Our dentists utilises the Design Align Deliver (DAD) technique, which has allows us to optimise aesthetic treatment outcomes for our patients. The process involves 3D design mock up, alignment correction problems and delivery of high-end porcelain veneers.

Our appointments include photographic analysis of our patient’s smile and computerised digital design, to provide a mock-up with a shape and form to best compliment the patients face. Once the mock-up has been tried-in or as we say “road tested”, our ceramist fabricates the ceramic veneers from the highest quality porcelain. Minimicing the natural colours and texture of the patient’s teeth to the individual 3D prescription from the mock-up, ensuring the porcelain veneer fits seamlessly in the mouth and appears as a natural tooth.

Before the final veneers are placed, a try-in visit allows for the fit, shape and colour to be checked and any adjustments made prior to the final bonding.
