Veneers Gold Coast

veneers gold coastAchieve a perfectly symmetrical, beautifully white smile that lasts for over a decade!

Porcelain veneers represent a milestone in the technologically exciting field of cosmetic dentistry. Veneers close gaps, correct alignment and discolouration without the need for expensive or painful dental surgery.

Made from material that possesses that same shiny translucent quality of teeth enamel, porcelain veneers mimic the shape, size and look of your natural teeth right down to the last detail! In the hands of an experienced cosmetic dentist, dental veneers deliver a brand new smile that looks both radiant and natural.

To find out if you are a suitable candidate for porcelain veneers, call Monterey Keys Dental Surgery at (07) 5665 8144.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic dental treatment to transform many of the unwanted characteristics of a smile. Veneers are custom designed ultra-thin shells of porcelain that are permanently bonded to your teeth to create a perfectly beautiful, natural-looking smile.

Are veneers right for me?

Porcelain veneers can be used to correct:

  • Chipped, cracked or damaged teeth
  • An asymmetrical smile
  • Teeth that are too long or too short
  • Discolouration
  • Gaps between teeth

For suitable candidates veneers can also be used instead of orthodontic work to straighten the appearance of your smile!

The benefits of porcelain veneers

Aesthetic Quality

The veneers we use in our Gold Coast dental surgery are made from porcelain which is an incredibly strong material. Porcelain veneers can be colour matched to the exact shade of your natural teeth, and has the same translucent properties of your natural tooth enamel- creating a beautifully seamless result.

Even within close proximity, your veneered teeth will look as natural as your own. Porcelain and enamel share very similar external characteristics. They even reflect and react to light the same way, making them virtually impossible to tell apart.

Protect your teeth

The great thing about veneers is that they can be used to strengthen teeth that have been weakened from decay, disease or trauma.

Veneers not only give your teeth that beautiful varnished look, they offer an added layer of protection to guard against external knocks and abrasion.

Stain resistance

Porcelain veneers also have a stain resistant surface, so you can enjoy your beautiful white smile for years to come.

Stain-causing substances find it tough to cling onto the extremely smooth surface of porcelain veneers and slide off your teeth without leaving a mark.

Flexible applications

Porcelain veneers may be easily shaped to totally cover the front part of your teeth and hide your dental flaws. They offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to beautifying your teeth.

Dental veneers are designed to hide the minor imperfections of your teeth. Whether your teeth are cracked or crooked, gappy or discoloured, these thin ceramic laminates dramatically enhance their appearance – and even correct some minor flaws. They are also used to lengthen short-looking teeth to give the appearance of a ‘normal’ length.

Are porcelain veneers for you?

If your teeth are perfectly healthy but look less than ideal, veneers may be what you’re looking for. Veneers are perfect for people who wish to enhance the appearance of their teeth without having to undergo any dental treatment that may be invasive or involve surgery.

They are great for hiding minor imperfections like a chipped, broken or stained tooth. However, they do not restore the health and function of your natural teeth. Veneers are recommended purely as a cosmetic enhancement that involves relatively painless and straightforward procedures.

It should be noted that not everyone is a suitable candidate for getting porcelain veneers. If your tooth enamel lacks the required mass or strength due to unhealthy or decayed teeth, you should consider other forms of restorative treatments.

How to take care of dental veneers

Porcelain veneers may be stain resistant and highly durable but it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to take good care of them. In fact, routine dental care is necessary to ensure the optimum lifespan of your dental veneers.

Treat them like your own teeth

Keeping up a good at-home oral care regime, which includes daily brushing and flossing, is integral to maintaining your veneered teeth. In this regard, you should treat your veneered teeth the same way you would your own natural teeth.

Post-application care

After you have had new veneers applied, you should allow a week or so for them to set in. During this time, avoid hard chews and extremely hot or cold foods.

You should continue to brush and floss twice daily as per normal, although you don’t have to be extra cautious. If you fail to upkeep your normal oral care regime, your veneers may attract bacteria leading to tooth decay and gum disease.

Protect your veneers from excessive grinds

Although your veneers are highly durable and stain resistant, you will need to exercise caution in some areas.

If you are a teeth grinder or clencher, the excessive pressures from such intensive action may cause the veneers to chip. This can be resolved by asking your dentist to prescribe a mouth guard to protect your veneers when you’re sleeping, as people usually grind their teeth when asleep.

Visit your dentist twice yearly

In addition to your at-home oral care regime, you should visit your Gold Coast dentist for check-ups and professional cleanings every six months. During the checks, the dentist will make sure that your veneers remain in tip-top condition.
