Veneers in Elsternwick: how do they work?
A veneer is a thin layer of tooth-coloured porcelain that is bonded directly onto your existing tooth. Because the veneer covers the whole tooth, it can change the shape, colour and alignment of your teeth completely.
Veneers can be applied to cover one tooth or even all of your teeth, depending on their condition. If you’re just considering one tooth, the porcelain that the veneer is made from can be colour-matched exactly to the rest of your teeth.
Alternatively, you could choose a teeth whitening treatment to give the rest of your natural teeth that extra sparkle.
To get that perfect fit for your veneers, the dentist may need to remove a thin layer of enamel from your tooth. This also provides a better surface for the dental adhesive to bond firmly to.
Your patient journey
The regular patient’s journey in Elsternwick comes in four steps. Firstly, you’ll need to have an initial appointment to discuss the treatment fully. We can even show you what your smile will look like after treatment by making a model of your own teeth.
Next is the first part of the treatment: preparing the surface of your teeth and making impressions to get that perfect fit. Once your teeth are prepared the veneer will be bonded to your tooth.
A week after your treatment, we’ll arrange a final appointment to check up on how you are doing with your new veneer, to make sure everything is going well.
The treatment and aftercare can be completed within just two weeks, making this a very efficient way to get a big boost to your smile.
